Hi Guido,

The following website shows the time table for coaches to birmingham from heathrow.


This will be by far your cheapest option, with a travel time of 2: 30hrs. Saves you having to travel into London, it can work out quicker too, as you won't have to wait for your connections etc.

Is there anyone who can give me hint on how to travel from London
Heathrow (terminal 5) to Birmingham? I'll be arriving there Saturday
around noon.

I tend to travel pretty casual so if it's as easy as "catch the
Heathrow express to X, then the underground to Y, then there are
trains to Birmingham station Z every N minutes (change trains in P, Q
and R)" that should be sufficient. I'm assuming I can just show up at
the station and buy tickets, it doesn't look such a big distance (plus
I don't have a printer here). From the map at
http://www.europython.eu/about/maps/ it looks like the value of Z is
Snow Hill Rail? Walking to the hotel seems no problem.
