The national rail web site suggested by Charlie will take you to a rail
ticket purchasing site.

As a general rule, trains from London to Snow Hill are slower but cheaper
than those arriving at New Street.

You can walk up and buy tickets on the day - but they are usually
horrendously expensive.

You can book your tickets on line and collect them from a machine at the
station, using a reference number that has been emailed to you and your
debit/credit card.
