Travel advice for all supporters ahead of Saracens match

30 November 2016

Ahead of this Saturday’s home game against Saracens, the Club would like to proactively remind supporters to please allow extra time when making your way into the city this weekend.

With the Christmas Markets in full swing, the city centre will be incredibly busy. Therefore, we encourage supporters to make use of public transport where possible when planning their journey.

Please note that the game is kicking off at 12.15 meaning gates will be open earlier than normal at 10.15.

Have a look at the helpful travel guide below to make your journey to the Rec as easy as possible ahead of the game.

Park and Ride

Bath & North East Somerset Council have confirmed that there are extra Park & Ride buses running from all three sites from the outskirts of the city this weekend. All services run until 21.30 on Saturday with a return ticket costing just £3.00.

Please see below sat nav postcodes for the three park and ride sites.

• Service 21 – Newbridge (Postcode BA1 3NB)
• Service 31 – Lansdown (Postcode BA1 9BJ)
• Service 41 – Odd Down (Postcode BA2 8PA)


The Club has been working closely with Great Western Railway to ensure operations at Bath Spa run as smoothly as possible, particularly post-match. GWR are advising people to be prepared for queues and to please be patient when waiting for trains. Staff at the station, along with matchday stewards will also be on hand to direct people to the next available train.

If you are intending to travel by train, please check the latest timetables depending on where you are travelling from. Where possible, extra carriages will be laid on to cope with the extra demand.

Centurion Travel

Alternatively, the Club and Centurion Travel offer an excellent, affordable and hassle-free public transport service to and from the Rec every matchday. Covering most of the surrounding local areas, start points for the coach routes are Warminster, Midsomer Norton, Emerson’s Green and Devizes. To book, or check the timetable, please click here.

By Bike

If you feel you need an energetic warm up ahead of the game, we now offer free and secure parking spaces for bikes. You can find this within the ground, next to the William Street Gate.
