As a fairly central city in the country, Birmingham is very easily accessed by train, and is a stopover point for many services. CrossCountry trains run out of Birmingham New Street station, which is in the centre, and whose network stretches to all ends of the country. Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham Snow Hill are two smaller stations in the city, and both run services to and from London.
The main coach network operating within Birmingham is National Express, whose headquarters are local to the region. As a result, long distance buses run in and out of the city many times a day, making it very easy to get to from all major cities in the country.
Birmingham is a large city, and thus presents a wide range of options for getting around. Several companies run a vast selection of bus routes within the city, and there is a light rail system called ‘Midland Metro’, which accesses the further edges of the city. Visitors can even travel via city’s network of canals, a remnant from the Industrial Revolution, which is even more extensive than of Venice!
