    I thought it was, but just searched for train times and it gave different stations and it threw me. Thanks

    Where you looking at travelling from and are you going today

    New Street or Moor Street both in the City Centre.

    Birmingham New Street Station is right in the centre with shops inside of the station and is 2 to 5 minuet walk from the German Market and Bull Ring shops.

    New street is closer

    Why would a Shy Wall Flower want to go to Twonk City? You'll wither in no time!

    New Street station. Take the new street exit as there are a few ways out which you won't want. Big food hall Above new Street station. Nice... You will be in the middle of new Street so take a right for Bull ring and then the rag market behind. If you come out of station on to new Street and turn left that's the library. Symphony Hall. I would go right and walk to Bull ring and rag market then come back up new Street if you have the time

    Getting funny looks, here, just laughed out loud

    I'd say Torquay is about as close to Birmingham as you want to get.

    If by refurbished you mean rip all the seats out and throw a lick of paint about, then yeah it has. All they've really done is streamline the flow of traffic and add shops.

    I love the Brum accent, haven't been in ages though so thought I'd give it a whirl and visit the Christmas markets.

    I hate the brummie accent, to my ears it just comes across as they're mentally deficient.

    If you like good eats, I know I certainly do, Talk of the Town on Martineau Place cooks some excellent Caribbean fare.

    Love some good cooked mutton and dumpling!

    Obviously.

    whenever I go to New Street station I can never find the train times or platforms. or where the trains go from - is it upstairs or downstairs. I now know it's downstairs but I have never been in such a disorganised station.

    WonkyDoctor

    Obviously.



    Thought it might be.

    There are 3 train stations there is new street, moor street and snow hill station, new street is in the centre, moor street is at the back of the bull ring and snow hill is a 2 min walk to the shops, hope this helps,
