Travel

Birmingham’s three main rail stations New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill are all in the city centre and take you to most central attractions by foot. Broad Street the major night life hub and the Bullring shopping centre are a short walk from New Street Station. However, as a large city you may find you do need to consider hailing a cab to get to some of the sights, but remember the roads through and around the city can get pretty busy, so make sure you plan ahead!
