Heathrow to Birmingham

Hi....I am arriving around 8pm at London Heathrow and will need to get to Birmingham the same night. I hope someone can help answer my questions

1. How far is it by coach/bus to Birmingham? Which Terminal do I get the bus from?

2. How much would it be by train? How long would the trip take?

3. Which Terminal would I take the train from?

4. How frequent are the trains/bus, if I took it at that time?

5. Would it be cheaper to buy train/bus tickets earlier online? Would the cost be much less?

Truly appreciate any help I can get. Thanks for your help

Bingley, United...

nationalexpress.com gives you all of the answers - note that if it routes you via central London then it probably means you are at T4 or T5 at Heathrow and there aren't direct coaches. If this happens just repeat for T1/T3 which is a short FREE train ride from T4 or T5.

There's a coach at 19.45 from Terminal 5, 19.50 from Terminal 4 and 20.15 from Central Bus Station (services Terminals 1 and 3) but unlikely you would get that.

The next one is at 21.25 from Terminal 5, 21.35 from Terminal 4 and 22.00 from Central Bus Station. This gets into Birmingham's Central Coach Station at 00.40. This coach is direct.

Book at www.nationalexpress.com

The rail option would mean a hour's journey by Underground into Central London to catch a train from Euston.
