Travel Advice for away matches:
Bath – Saturday 5th May (Premiership) – The Rec
Train: When travelling by train, for most journeys, it is advisable to book well in advance in order to get the best fares. Train tickets can generally be booked about 12 weeks in advance, however from experience, the best time to book is about 8 to 10 weeks in advance – however it is advisable not to book until the TV schedules are known. Advance fares are generally only usable on the service you specify at the time of booking, so missing a train could be very costly.
For journeys wholly within the Network South-East area, often the cheapest journey is the Standard or Super off-peak day return, which can be bought on the day – this would be the case for such trips as Twickenham for the London Double Header and Harlequins, Mill Hill Broadway (Saracens), Northampton and Worcester (for Northampton & Worcester you may find some good deals with advance tickets). Also within this area, for those who are not entitled to buy one of the national rail cards, there is the Network railcard.
Coach: National Express coaches can generally be booked further in advance, however it is advisable not to book until the TV schedules are known.
The information contained in this section is obtained from the Train Operators’ websites and National Express website. Information is given as a guide to help supporters when planning their journeys. Engineering work often affects weekend rail travel, as such it is advisable to re-check plans a couple of weeks before travelling.
Please be aware the dates and times of matches are subject to change – particularly if the TV schedules have not been announced – however other factors, such as clashes with International matches and with football matches can also cause changes to match dates/times.
Car: For those driving to away matches, we will provide information from the away club on how to get there and where to park.
Tickets for Away Matches: Tickets for away matches usually go on sale approximately 5 or 6 weeks prior to the match – details will be announced on the Away Tickets Page of the London Irish Official Website. Tickets generally remain on sale until about 10 days prior to the match.
For most away matches, tickets can also be purchased direct from the home club, however, unless there are unreserved areas, you would be unlikely to be seated with other London Irish Supporters.
