The central location of Birmingham provides quick access to the motorway network. At the heart of the UK rail network, the newly redeveloped New Street Station has the capacity for 52 million passengers a year. The proposed High Speed 2 railway will link Birmingham to London, the East Midlands, Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester -significantly reducing the travel time between locations.

Birmingham Airport is the third largest airport outside of London. Directdestinations to over 140 locations include daily flights to New York, Delhi, Istanbul, Dubai, Paris and Frankfurt. The airport has its own rail station, Birmingham International, which is just 10 minutes from Birmingham New Street with many lines travelling directly to London Euston station.

Not forgetting Oxford, Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon (the birthplace of William Shakespeare) are great for day trips.
