Buses/taxis from Drayton Manor

hi staying in Drayton manor for 3 days & we're looking to go to Birmingham to sea life aquarium with 4 kids. What are the options for transport. I'm guessing taxi will be expensive. Are there buses from Tamworth-Birmingham ?

You could get the train from Tamworth to Birmingham New Street which is apparently 10 minutes walk from Sealife. The train journey is about 20 minutes.

From Drayton Manor to Tamworth train station is a 10 minute taxi ride. You could get a train from Tamworth to New Street. They are often throughout the day.

Alternatively get a taxi from Drayton Manor direct to Sea Life.

There are buses from Tamworth into Birmingham but I'm guessing this will take around an hour and will probably drop you off in the centre of Birmingham so you'll still have to reach Sea Life.

I'd Google taxi companies in Tamworth and get a price as this is most definitely the quickest and most efficient way of getting there.

Bus stop is about a 15mins walk from drayton manor . They run every 20mins but yeah the trip is about 45 mins.

A taxi from drayton manor to Birmingham will cost you about £30 . Get a quote before so they cannot charge you any more .

I recommend 3bs taxis 01827 52222 best costs and very reliable .
