Flying is the fastest way to cover the 290 miles from Birmingham to Brussels, but Eurostar trains and international bus services offer alternatives. Birmingham is a regenerated, post-industrial Midlands city, but evocative traces of its heritage can be seen in attractions like the National Trust's preserved back-to-back workers' dwellings. Brussels is an elegant European capital, rich in culture and heritage, showcased in the ornate medieval guild houses of the Grand Place.
Train: Taking the train between Birmingham New Street and Brussels Midi Station begins with a Virgin trains connection to London Euston and a transfer by Underground to St Pancras. From here there are Eurostar departures approximately every two hours to Brussels. The total journey time is just over four hours, including connections.
Bus: National Express and Eurolines operate buses to Brussels. The weekday schedule from Birmingham Coach Station begins at 3:00 a.m. with an early morning change at London Victoria Coach Station. There is another departure just before 5:00 a.m. and two late afternoon departures, all requiring a change in London. Journey times range from just under 13 hours to more than 15 hours.
Flight: Brussels Airlines offers daily flights from Birmingham Airport to Brussels. Schedules vary seasonally but there are one to four departures daily, with early morning, mid-morning, mid-afternoon and late afternoon options. Flight times are around one hour and 20 minutes
