Regional Airports

The University of Warwick is easily accessed from all major airports in the UK. There are two regional airports and the campus can also be reached by public transport from all the major London airports (see below).

  • Birmingham: To get to the University from Birmingham airport, either
    • take the train to Coventry (£3.50 return, 10 minutes) and then local bus (approximately £1.80 single, 25 minutes; exact fare must be paid to the driver) or taxi (about £10, 15 minutes) to the University of Warwick
    • take a taxi from the airport to the University of Warwick (possibly slightly quicker, but expensive - about £30 for the half-hour ride).
  • East Midlands (near Nottingham) has some international flights, and has an (infrequent) National Express service to Coventry.

London Airports

Coventry can also be reached by train from all the London airports listed above. For more information see the National Rail website.

Note that the University is not in the town of Warwick (which is about 8 miles away), and it is not the same as Coventry University (which is a different university, located in the centre of Coventry). This is important when telling taxi drivers where you want to be.

If you're coming by rail or bus (e.g., National Express or Megabus), you should come to Coventry.
