Birmingham airport to Hampstead ( North of London)

by loose_motion

Hi all ,
I will be arriving into birmingham in the next few days and have to goto Hampstead - North London. I checked online car rentals and auto transmission cars even for a 2 day rental are costing about 150 pounds which is quite a lot ( canadian licence holders cant drive manual transmission). I have two 30kg bags and a big handbag so lugging them off to a train station would be difficult.

Are there any point to point vans which run from the birmingham airport to hampstead. Something like the blue vans in toronto and most US big cities. Any suggestions on how to get to north of london would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately you have two choices -

1. Train - and the plus is the Train Station is near to the Airport within walking distance and I am sure you can use the Airport trolley to carry your luggage.

2. Coach - again the service runs from the airport within walking distance.

The coach fare will set u back £21 return open and it will drop you off in central London from there I would suggest a taxi due to the heavy lugguage or get someone to meet you at the coach station.

The train can be more expensive and may set you back a bit more but it all depends on the day and how busy the service is.

If you go onto Google.co.uk serach engine and type in National coach it will take you to there site and you can check times and dates and how much the fare is.

My advice go by coach its cheaper and the amount of lugguage u have it will be easier....

car hire is another option but it is an expensive game

hope this helps you ......

regards Chavez

Be also prepared to pay extra taxi fare for your luggage. Not sure how much it costs these days, but I had to pay an extra £5 a few years ago.
£150 seems a lot for a one way, 2 day hire. Try something like Enterprise, Thrifty or Budget car hire companies. These 3 are usually reasonable.

If this is your first time in England - do not drive! I agree with the post above - get a trolley and wheel your luggage to the coach and the driver will put it in the storage area.The coach goes every 30 minutes and takes 2 hours and 50 minutes and goes to the large Victoria coach station in Victoria. The tube to Hampstead would involve a change so again a taxi is the best option.

Thank you for your help . I am leaning towards the coach. Might be easier with my bags. Thank you for your inputs.

Travel Tips for Birmingham

Many years ago Birmingham was...

by Aragina

Many years ago Birmingham was the 'Workshop of the World' but now it is the CONFERENCE, EXHIBITION, and SPORTS centre of Europe. We even boast the largest road junction in the world. It has so many underpasses, overpasses, and inter-twined roads that it's been nicknamed 'SPAGHETTI JUNCTION'!! Did you know that Birmingham has more miles of CANALS than VENICE and more TREES than inhabitants?

Birmingham is home to Cadbury's Chocolate. George and his brother Richard Cadbury moved their successful chocolate manufacturing business from Bull Street, Birmingham to Bournville in 1879.

JRR Tolkien author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, spent his childhood in Sarehole, Birmingham. The tiny village of Sarehole is said to have been the model for the Shire, home of Bilbo in the book The Hobbit. Going to the VT meeting :-) in December 2001.

We Will find the ring Frodo....

by sourbugger

If Birmingham had one the contest to become a European City of Culture then two buildings just off the Hagley Road could have been developed to become a "Must see" destination.

Perrot's Folley is a 96 foot tall brick built tower, erected in the mid 18th Century. Along with the tower at the nearby Victorian Waterworks, it's said that they provided the Inspiration for the two towers of Minas Morgul and Minas Tirith in Tolkein's masterpiece 'The Two Towers' (the middle one of the Trilogy)

You can't actually enter either of the buildings, but this may well change in the future.

To find these towers head for "Five Ways" and head down the Hagley road. After about half a mile you will find Monument street on your right. From there just jook for the folly ahead of you.

You can however visit Sarehole Mill, and the village nearby which again was an inspiration to Tolkein : Hobbitvile was born !

Tolkein lived nearby and it has an exhibition about his work in the mill.

There is in fact a complete Tolkein Trail if you are an avid fan, but unless you are an avid fan, most of the locations on it are fairly non-descript places associated with the life of the writer.

and more When at the fort you can really buy a wide range of things from clothes/accessories to health/beauty to books/music to home accessories. The Fort has high street shops, so you will be expected to pay high street prices, so the items aren't to expensive.

Birmingham, centre of the English railway system

by Galahad

Birmingham is the centre of the English railway system with Birmingham New Street being the busiest station in England in terms of both the number of trains and passenger numbers passing through the station. It handles about 80 per cent of the daily total services to Birmingham. There are also numerous suburban stations.
In the City Centre walk. There are plenty of buses. Use the trains for locations near the suburban stations. Parking places are becoming increasingly expensive.
There is a good connection with the International Airport.

1 of 60

by Maggies about Bella Italia

They have over 60 restaurants in the whole UK and being just 1 of 60 don't make it anything special. Its pastas and pizzas are pretty good but you need to wait forever to get it. The service is really slow, first you need to wait to get a table, then waiting for the menus, for the drinks etc. It all takes a while and none of the waiters seem to see you even if you're staring at them.
It's called Bella Italia now, last year it was Bella Pasta. The pastas are good but overcooked. Ask them to cook it 3 minutes less.
