Hi Jenny,

Olympia is in Kensington. The nearest train station is probably Paddington but I think trains from the Birmingham area would come into Kings Cross or Euston. You would then have to get a tube and change a couple of times as it's quite a distance.

This tube map will show you:

Olympia station is on the district line and is in square 3D. Kings Cross and Euston are in square 5C.

Hth :)

I have never been to Olympia so don't know what it is like, but would it be easier and cheaper to wait for GMex, Manchester in October. You could get a train directly into Piccadilly and then the metrolink two stops later voila, you are at St Peter's Square, right near G.Mex. You could go on one more stop and get off at G.Mex station but it is better to get off at St. peter's square.
