Euston Station To Birmingham New Street Station

Train tickets are available from the counters to your left, as you enter Euston Station, as you face the departure boards. Although you can buy a return ticket, it is often cheaper to buy singles in each direction. Ask the clerk for the price difference to confirm.

There are several trains each hour, so you shouldn't have to wait too long for a train. The main line service between Euston and New Street is by Virgin Trains, which typically use the Pendalino trains. These have (UK) power outlets for every double seat, so you can charge phones and laptops should you wish to on the journey.

Journey time is usually about 80 minutes, depending whether any works are being carried out on the line.
