There are a number of railway stations within three miles of Newman. If you are travelling from stations on the Nottingham to Cardiff route or the Birmingham to Hereford route, we recommend taking a direct train to University station and then taking the X64 bus service. To access the X64 bus route leave the train at University station and head for the Queen Elizabeth hospital (across the road and along a well-marked path), and choose the X64 bus stop marked ‘Towards Quinton, Weoley Castle’.
If you are travelling from other stations, we recommend changing at Birmingham New Street for Kings Norton station and taking the 18 bus service from directly outside the station. Alternatively, Newman is about 10 minutes by taxi from either University or Kings Norton station.
