Birmingham International Airport (BHX) is conveniently located nearby to the University of Warwick and a car or taxi journey will take approximately half an hour. Alternatively, there is a train station located at the airport which serves Canley station (slightly closer to the university but a relatively small station) and Coventry station (larger and served by buses and taxis).
Airports around London, such as Heathrow (LHR) and Gatwick (LGW), are located very roughly one hundred miles to the southeast. The map below lists some of the better known airports in the Midlands and London area (zoom out), although other airports will of course exist around the UK.
Travel from London airports
For general travel around the UK, National Express is the main operator for coaches nationwide (other, local companies will exist in parallel) and National Rail will carry information about train travel. It is also possible to book train tickets in advance at a discount, using sites such as thetrainline.com, but be aware of restrictions that may be imposed, such as those relating to peak travel times or usage of particular train operators. Each airport also has its own page with information about travel options:
University of Warwick
Visitors should be aware that the University of Warwick is located on the southern outskirts of Coventry and not the nearby town of Warwick. Further information about visiting the University of Warwick can be found at: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/
