Getting to the ground
Match Day Travel
Please allow yourself plenty of time for travel to Edgbatson on match day. Birmingham city centre is undergoing extensive redevelopment causing a number of delays at peak travel times. We strongly advise fans to use public transport and avoid traveling by car if possible. You will also see additional bag searches and individual ‘pat downs’ which will no doubt add a little more time to your entry in to the stadium. With that in mind, we would recommend that fans head to the stadium in plenty of time to avoid the expected match-day queues. Prior to the match day please make sure that you have checked the full list of what you can and can’t take into the venue which includes cans and glass, click here for the full ticket terms and conditions. Please be aware that gates open 2 hours before start of play for our major match day games and all facilities are open.
Hop on a National Express Bus
The 45 and 47 bus will take you straight from Carrs Lane in Birmingham City Centre and drop you off on Pershore Road, which is a 2 minute walk from the Stadium. On international match days and Vitality Blast Finals Day, National Express West Midlands will running regular shuttle buses from the city centre to Edgbaston. Shuttle buses will be available between 9am and 11am from Smallbrook Queensway (opposite TK Maxx and close to the Bullring) and are convenient for users of both New Street and Moor Street Train Stations. They will also be running from Edgbaston after close of play. A return journey on our shuttle bus service is available for just £5 for adults and £3 for children.
Travel by Train with Virgin
Speed into Birmingham New Street at 125mph with Virgin Trains. With 3 trains an hour from London, you’ll be there in the blink of an eye (or 1 hour 24 minutes to be precise!) Leaving the car at home means the whole squad can travel together from start to stumps and you can even enjoy a cheeky pre-game tipple.
Our nearest mainline train station is Birmingham New Street which is 2 miles away from the Stadium. There are a further 2 main train stations in the city centre, Moor Street (3.1 miles away) and Snow Hill (3.4 miles away).
Match Day Parking
If you're travelling by car, please note that the streets around the stadium are all residential and as such they are subject to stringent parking restrictions throughout the day.
In the interest of spectator safety, Edgbaston Road will be closed between 9am (gates opening time) and 11am. Gates to the main car park on Edgbaston Road will be closed from 8.30am meaning access to the car park will be via Pershore Road entrance after this time. There may also be a road closure for up to an hour after play.
Please be aware that Edgbaston is a public transport destination and parking is limited. We recommend you only use official stadium parking and book in advance to avoid disappoint.
