Growing up in Birmingham, I have always been used to city life....

Birmingham - these can be as cheap as £2 from London! Once you're in Birmingham, grab a train to Stratford or, alternatively, catch a coach from Birmingham coach station with Johnson's coaches - £5.20 for a single, £6.20 for a return.Driving/parking: You can work out how to get here, but it's parking that can really get you in Stratford. For short term parking, try a few residential streets that are perhaps a 10 minute walk from the centre - some will allow you to park for 2 hours for free as a non-resident, while others(e.g. around Sanctus Road) seemingly have no restrictions. Of course, always check! Where you stay might have somewhere to park for free. For cheap parking, this spot on Birmingham Road (near No 1 Shakespeare Street) offers £3 parking all day. If you're looking for something more secure, Bridgeway Multi Storey car park is free for the first hour, going to £10 for 24 hours.Places to Stay
