This is where traintimes.org.uk comes into its own:


It's recommendations are generally pretty close to common sense, and match the 
rest of the thread - with one exception - it notes that there's engineering 
work on the underground on 17th and 18th this weekend. 

The quickest route would appear to be a bus. 

The route I'd take would be tube on piccadilly line to Kings Cross, and then 
walk from Kings Cross to Euston. (Come out station, turn right down Euston 
Road; it's about a 10 minute walk - 1/2 mile - and I don't walk fast) Then 
train from Euston to Birmingham New Street.

I wouldn't take it because it's the quickest, but because it's the least
