Telford is situated about an hour away (by train) and 70 minutes (by car) from the closest airport which is Birmingham International.  For those travelling via London airports, Manchester or East Midlands, there are regular trains from each of the airports.  For those travelling from Birmingham International airport, you will have to change trains at Birmingham New Street train station but the changes should be clearly marked upon your timetables.  All trains are staffed with conductors who will be able to assist with any queries that you may have.  When travelling from London you should consider the Wrexham and Shropshire Railway Company, which has direct trains from London to Telford.
