The other alternative is to take the xCountry train to Reading and change for the FGW trains to Paddington or SWT trains to Waterloo (depending on your final destination. Another option is to change at Birmingham New Street, walk across to Moor St station and get the train to Marylebone with Chiltern trains.
XCountry fares are expensive but there a plenty of split ticketing options available on a route like that can dramatically reduce the price.
Otherwise fly to Southampton with FlyBE and get the train to Waterloo.
