Directions to the Bob Lucas Stadium if arriving by train
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.
Taxis: 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.
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.
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.
The supporters club are running a coach for the away trip, and we look forward to hearing you all get behind the Sports!
