Train:  Bescot Stadium station is as you would expect next to the ground and has connections from Birmingham New Street with trains served from London Euston. For direct connections from High Wycombe take the Birmingham Snow Hill service (journey time just under 2 hours) and get off at Moor Street station and walk the short distance to Birmingham New Street. Look out for special 'Group Save' offers on this service and bear in mind that returning from evening fixtures to High Wycombe is not really practical.
