London Marylebone to Birmingham Moor Street

The main Chiltern Railway route connects the capital with Birmingham on one single line, calling at a number of towns across the home counties, making commuting and travelling into the two cities more possible away from just car travel. With 8 trains that run on the peak service between the two stations, there is plenty of flexibility for customers to choose a train service that suits them, without having to rush to reach an infrequent train time. This Chiltern rail route typically calls at Leamington and High Wycombe also, the two biggest towns outside of Birmingham and London respectively, bringing them closer to the cities with a much faster travel time. With Chiltern providing free WiFi for all passengers on their trains, this also gives commuters the perfect opportunity to get some extra work done going into or after leaving the office.

There are plenty of things to do in Birmingham, it just depends on what you are after! Birmingham Moor Street station sees you arrive in the heart of the shopping district, with the famous Bullring just minutes away. You can catch a game at a number of teams that play in the area or even watch England play cricket at Edgbaston. Birmingham also has a thriving nightlife, with plenty of bars, clubs, and restaurants to cater for all kinds of celebrations, or for those just looking for a change of scenery and a special trip out.

About Chiltern Railways

Chiltern Railways have operated the Chiltern Main Line franchises since 1996 and has greatly improved travel times for a number of journeys on the line since. With a large fleet of trains across the network, trains are able to run at a more frequent time, giving passengers a good service during peak hours of travel, with plenty of space on busier trains. While there is no First Class service with Chiltern, they do provide a business zone, which gives customers a desk, power sockets and more room to do work should it be needed for their travel.
