Sixways is located to the North East of Worcester, close to Junction 6 on the M5. Regular buses run from the town centre to the stadium with a return fare of £3
Great Western Railway run a direct service from London Paddington and Reading to Worcester. Journey time is about 2 ½ hours from London and 2 hours from Reading.
Advance fare are available from £6 each way from both Reading & London Paddington. There are two railway stations in Worcester, Shrub Hill and Foregate Street – the fares are the same to either station. Foregate Street is closer to the City centre from where a bus service to the stadium is available. Shrub Hill is closer to the stadium so would be the better option for those wanting to take a taxi to the stadium.
The last train back to Reading and London Paddington is at 9:11pm (from Foregate Street – a few minutes later from Shrub Hill). For those travelling into London there are a couple of later services with a change at Birmingham Moor Street to London Marylebone – the single journey fare on these trains is £33.90
Although National Express runs a direct coach service from London Victoria to Worcester, coach times are such that this would only be an option for those planning a Friday to Sunday (or longer) weekend in Worcester.
There are no direct coaches from Reading-Calcot.
For those driving – see details from the Worcester Warriors’ website. The Car Parks at the stadium are for “pass holders” only – but there is a Park & Walk: Exit the M5 and Junction 6, follow the road markings and signs to the A4440 and the AA signs marked ‘WRFC Park and Walk’ at Shire Business Park. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Wainwright Road (WR4 9FA) and park along here. Once parked, follow the AA signs for the footpath which leads to Sixways Stadium (approximately 10 minute walk). The Worcester website also gives details of Park & Ride sites.
