Weymouth railway station is situated in King Street which
is 2 miles from the Bob Lucas Stadium, so unless you fancy
a hike the following are recommended.
If you want to get to the ground early to soak up the atmosphere
and enjoy the bar and catering facilities, your best bet is
to catch a taxi. They are reasonably priced compared to a
lot of towns and if there are 3/4 of you (or more if you can
get an 8 seater) it can be cheaper and quicker to get a taxi.
It will cost approximately £6/£7 from the station/town
to the ground.
Taxis are available from the rank located on the station
Alternatively Weyline Taxis are located in Queen Street, outside
the station between The Railway Tavern and Giant Pot.
If you are visiting many of the fine hostelries in town,
there is a taxi rank outside The Swan (Wetherspoons), or the
following taxi firms have offices in town:
Weyline Taxis (01305 777777), Fleetline (01305 784252), Bee
Cars (01305 775151) and Weytax (01305 773636 or 783636)
You can catch the following First Bus Route (although taxi
is recommended for convenience if there are a few of you to
share costs and you get dropped off right outside the ground).
No. 3 Hereford Road - This route has a 15 minute frequency
during the day but no service during the evening. Ask for
Radipole Lane which is a 6/7 minute stroll along Radipole
Lane to the Wessex Stadium. Returning to the station, simply
catch the same bus from the same bus stop you get off at.
In the evening it is No 8 Chickerell, which is only hourly
and there isn't really a suitable return service as it goes
by different route.
The buses can be caught from King Street Roundabout just a
few minutes from the station. Head out of the station and
turn right down King Street. Cross over and turn left at the
roundabout. The Bus Stop is located next to the roundabout
in front of the Bus Garage. Both routes go via the Town Centre
and pick up at Commercial Road (behind Debenhams) and Town
Bridge at the harbour end of St Thomas Street
I am sure the nice driver will tell you where you need to
get off the bus, and which way to head to the ground.
