Can anyone help me with this?

I'm flying to Birmingham airport and want to go directly to Bicester before my work begins in the afternoon...

Can i go by train? Which one? Is there a direct or good connection to Bicester? How long will it take -one way-?

Thanks in advance :smile:

If only!
The attached link should help. Bit tricky as there are several stations in Birmingham and Bicester. I'm not sure if Bicester north station is near the outlet? You could get a taxi for the last leg of your journey

I did a quick search and it is possible but depends on when you land and how long you have got.

And they have buses going between the station and the outlet quite often, £2 each way!

Actually this is much easier "Ask for Bicester Village when purchasing your Chiltern Railways train ticket and this will include the bus journey."

Airport Location

The Airport rail station, Birmingham International, is located only 500 metres from the Airport Passenger Terminals. The rail station is linked to the Passenger Terminals by the free, frequent Air-Rail Link from 0515 to 0200. Air-Rail link runs every two minutes with a journey time of less than 2 minutes, providing a fast and easy connection from train to plane.

From Birmingham

Chiltern Railways runs daily services - up to two an hour - from Birmingham Moor Street to Bicester North station, with journey times from just over an hour. On arrival at Bicester North station the Bicester Village Taxi Bus will whisk you straight to your favourite boutiques. Ask for Bicester Village when purchasing your Chiltern Railways train ticket and this will include the bus journey
