Belfast City is just 5km away from the city centre, and it's easy to reach whether you're driving or whether you're reaching it on public transport. The shuttle bus that runs from the Europa will get you there in round 20 - 30 minutes, and a taxi will take slightly less time (15 in good traffic!).
It's usually a fast and easy process if you need to get through Belfast City airport. Security rarely takes very long, unless you're travelling during commuting hours. The airport is small, but there's a cafe, restaurant, WHSmith and Duty Free store on the airside of the terminal. If you need to exchange currency, you can do this before or after security.

It takes between 30 and 40 minutes to get there by car, and costs around £30 in a cab. The 300 bus is much cheaper: it costs £7 for a single to the airport, and £10 for a month's return.

What to expect in Birmingham
Birmingham is now the second biggest city in the United Kingdom, with a variety of train connections to other parts of the country. The city had a very industrial past, but now, gleaming structures like the Bullring have bought the city into a league of it's own. Speaking of leagues, you'll definitely know if there's a football game on here – the Aston Villa football club is based just outside of the city centre!
It's slightly more expensive here than it is in Belfast, and prices are on average 10% higher. Taxis around the city centre will cost much more than back home, because the city is much bigger and traffic can become congested easily during peak hours. Stick to the trains and buses for affordable travel.
If you're looking for Birmingham's answer to the Cathedral Quarter, take a wander around the Jewellery Quarter – this used to be one of biggest jewellery-manufacturing districts in the UK, but now there are plenty of bars and restaurants for the young crowd. Birmingham Broad Street is the place to go if you want to carry the party into the early hours.
