Trains to Kia Oval Cricket Ground

The Oval doesn't have car parking, and being just 10 minutes' walk from Vauxhall station makes it perfect for taking the train.

Travelling to the Oval by train

Vauxhall train station is the main station for the Oval. Trains run every couple of minutes to and from London Waterloo throughout the day offering great links to the south west. Vauxhall station also sits on the Victoria line, offering great links from Kings Cross St Pancras.

The walk to the station is well-signposted, and volunteers from the Cricket World Cup will be available to help and answer questions.

When it comes to travelling home, we expect to have a queuing system in place at the busiest times. There will be signs and stewards to help - please follow their instructions.

You can find out more about travelling to the Oval on the ICC Cricket World Cup website (opens in a new tab).

Trains to Hampshire Bowl

Getting to the Hampshire Bowl by train couldn't be easier. And with the M27 being upgraded for smart motorways, it makes sense to avoid the queues and traffic management and take the train.

Getting to the Hampshire Bowl by train

Travelling from London, Southampton and the south west

Southampton Airport Parkway is the main station for the Hampshire Bowl and has regular services both towards London and the south west. There's a free direct shuttle from the station to the cricket ground - it takes around 15 minutes. The shuttles run continuously before and after the match, and there'll be a regular service whilst the match is played. The shuttle service starts at 08:00, and runs until one hour after the final ball.

Travelling from Portsmouth and the south coast

It's possible to use Hedge End station to make your way to the Hampshire Bowl - a regular shuttle runs between the station and the ground.

There'll be world cup volunteers at both stations to welcome you, as well as to answer any questions and help direct you to the shuttle.
