You can take a direct train to London Euston and then Tube/bus/taxi from there to Victoria.

There are no direct coaches, you need to go into Birmingham first, on a Sunday this is a viable option as the road traffic should be light and could be cheaper than the train..

The trains run frequently and directly into London Euston, if possible catch a Virgin train rather than the painfully slow London Midland trains.

The first train from Birmingham International to London (Euston) on Sunday 18th May is at 08.40, arriving 10.28.

It is operated by Virgin Trains and Advance singles for that train are still available at £33.50. An off-peak single (which is valid by any train that day and can be bought at the Station on the day) is £49.10.

For other alternatives use the National Rail "Train times and tickets" search.
