The arena parking at the Ricoh is expensive, but there is a retail park next door with extensive parking. This is usually limited to 2 hours on show/match days BUT extended if you spend a minimum £50. A bargain if you buy stuff you need anyway (there's a Tesco and an M&S).

[www.arenashopping.com]

The trains only run once an hour from Coventry Central to the Ricoh Arena but are handy if you time it right. They haven't put on any extra trains when I've been, but they do shuttle buses.

Good to know, thanks. (Copying your advice to this thread). I look forward to spending 50 quid on cake and pastries at the M&S food hall.

Not sure which is the best train to catch, but there will be regular trains around every 15 minutes heading to Birmingham and obviously just make sure that they stop at Coventry.

Off the top of my head I would say virgin trains as I don't think children rail stop at coventry.

If you know roughly what times your train it might pay you to start looking tomorrow as the 12 week schedule starts for fares.

Or try web sites like split tickets for rail fares, where you stay on the same train but but separate tickets and is usually a lot cheaper.

If you're flying into Heathrow, there is a 2 hour bus direct to coventry which would be far simpler

Some info for folk flying into Heathrow.

By car from Heathrow to Coventry will take 1 hour and 32 mins.

From Heathrow onto M4 heading towards reading/ wales
Come off M4 junction 8/9 maidenhead stay on roundabout and take exit 2 to high Wycombe.
This the A404 will take you to the M40/ M42 motorway.
So the A404 links you from the M4 to the M40.
The M42 is just a continuation of the M40, leave the M42 at junction 6
And take the A45 to Coventry.
This is the route I will be taking as I'm close to the M4

www.thetrainline.com. By train this site will let you plan your trip.
By train is 2 hours 3 mins.

I booked cheap flights from Nuremberg to Manchester. With a rental car and one night at the Ibis in Coventry we pay 90€ per person. Hoping for LD.

What's insane about the UK rail system ?

Get on a train at Euston that's heading North towards the Midlands and get off at Coventry. It's not hard spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Probably takes an hour or just over from Euston (London)

Re: Coventry England UK travel and show info

What's insane is the ticketing process, and the prices if you don't know how the system works.

At the moment, if I buy a Bristol to Edinburgh ticket, the price is about £200 for a ONE WAY journey.

In about ten day's time, that price will reduce to about £50, and steadily start increasing back towards a max of about £130.

However, if I book 4 separate journeys (WITHOUT having to change trains, just splitting the tickets), I can do it for about £30.

It is often considerably cheaper to fly from Bristol to Edinburgh VIA SPAIN than it is to take the train. That is not a sane system.

There is no logic to the price of tickets, just confusion to maximise profit.

Pricing are vary. If you don't know the system, you will end up paying 3-4 times than other.spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Also sometimes platforms are only announce few minutes before. So if we don't know the station, we may miss trains.

Especially weekends, trains are often delayed or cancelled. It is better than 20-30 years ago though.

Very well put Syrel. The whole thing is designed to confuse and extract obscene profits from those not familiar with the system or miss their booked train. It really is outrageous and needs to be regulated.
