Is there a pass that covers the Heathrow Express & the train from London to Birmingham?

Is there a RailPass that will include the cost of the Heathrow Express and the onward train fare from Euston Station to Birmingham?

    Hi Pritpal,

    A BritRail England Pass would cover travel on trains from London to Birmingham and the Heathrow Express. However, if you are only doing a one-way between London and Birmingham, then I would just recommend that you purchase regular point-to-point tickets, as opposed to the pass.

    You can check ticket costs and schedules for trains from London to Birmingham by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the route. Generally, trains in the United Kingdom can be booked within 75 to 90 days of an intended date of departure. Special tickets are issued for the Heathrow Express, which you can purchase by clicking here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html.

    If you will be doing a roundtrip between London and Birmingham, then you might want to consider purchasing the BritRail England Pass instead of the point-to-point tickets. When you compare the cost of the BritRail England Pass with that of the costs of roundtrip point-to-point tickets between London and Birmingham, it would be close, but which of these options is the most economical would depend on what rates you would be able to get for regular point-to-point tickets on the trains between London and Birmingham.

    The Heathrow Express departs every 15 minutes, and the ride only takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The Heathrow Express arrives into the Paddington station in London, while the fastest trains to Birmingham (high-speed Virgin Trains) depart from the Euston station in London. To commute from Paddington to Euston, you would take the Circle Line of the Tube to the Euston Square stop, which would take about 13 minutes. You would then walk from Euston Square to the Euston station, which would take 5 to 10 minutes. You would pay to board the Tube locally at the turnstiles upon arrival.
