    Best Way to travel from London to Birmingham ?

    I will be traveling to UK for the first time. I believe the public transportation system is good in UK. Can i take a train from London to Birmingham ?
    I don't know where I am going. I don't know what for but I am making progress.

    Sucks that most uk guppies are stealth viewers only.

        Yes I travelled via the Motorway to Birmingham but when we got to the outskirts Traffic Jam was too much!

        Good Luck!

          I presume by motorway you mean "by car"; i don't plan to rent a car since i just need to get to my destination..visiting family.
          ...Update: I was looking at the train route from google maps from Heathrow to Leicester: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Heat...52.6368778!3e3

          It does not seem too bad i think.

          I will see what mo293 comes back with but i may consider renting for a day if that would make more sense. I checked orbitz and rental prices are not too bad. I will have to see if i will be able to drop it off at Leicester or somewhere nearby other than Heathrow.

        The transportation system in the UK is one of the best in the world, I have done extensive back and forth between London and Birmingham and sometimes Manchester too. I'd say take M1 and then M25 and exit closest to your destination.

          What do you suggest for getting to Leicester ? I will be arriving at Heathrow.

        I decided to rent for a day. It seems easier with the luggage and getting to the hotel for the night.
        I don't know where I am going. I don't know what for but I am making progress.

          Or you can take the Rajdhani express
          Why isn't the Dividend story among the featured threads?

            Train is very fast but very costly as well. Travelling by bus is much cheaper (1/3rd) of the train cost. You can book in advance from National Express or MegaBus.

              Before the plan, you must book your flight, hotel, and storage units in London. Then make a list of the best restaurants near me. So. that's how you can enjoy your trip!
