1. There are 2 main Stratfords in the UK: Stratford-(up)on-Avon, Warwickshire and Stratford in East London. ICAME is being held in the former.

2. The railway station at Birmingham Airport is called Birmingham International, and the main railway station in Birmingham city centre is called Birmingham New Street.

3. Trains to Stratford-upon-Avon are NOT available from Birmingham New Street station. To travel to Stratford by train you must take a short walk from New Street station to Birmingham Moor Street station (see map). The route is signposted.
