The journey from Leicester to Birmingham New Street takes approximately 55 minutes. The central location of the Birmingham New Street station makes it easy for visitors to explore the multitude of shopping, entertainment and cultural attractions in the city. Grand Central can be found just above the station, which is home to lots of shops and places to eat and drink. Birmingham attracts millions of visitors every year and arriving by train couldn’t be easier.
