Shrewsbury away

So, I am taking the plunge and going to this game - generally I restrict myself to nearer away games - I’m going by train - any tips for getting to the ground from the station ? Is it walkable ?

  • 20 minute walk from memory

    35/40 minutes 
  • Very long walk, buses run from bus station [Located 5 mins from rail station] to the stadium, return buses depart stadium about ten minutes after final whistle.

  • It’s a long walk but has pubs along the way to break it up. I've found them to be away friendly both on both my visits.

    Spare some time for the town centre near the centre which is a bit like a Canterbury, Lincoln type place. 

    Once you’re over the river and past The Crown (good riverside pub) the surroundings get greyer. So I’d get a cab from there, that’ll save about 1.5 miles of walking.
  • Thanks all - the walk doesn’t look to daunting (well for me) - any pointers as to which pubs I am likely to find fellow Addicks in pre-match ?

    Absolutely unbelievable, not only you are after advice about getting to the ground, you’re also  after a free pint! 😂

  • Drove last time I went to Shrewsbury. Do they put enough buses on for everyone, or like MIlton Keynes when just one bus and if you can’t get on unlucky and have to walk back?

    I found the walk fine. Checking the football ground guide it's 2 miles, but pleasant enough from memory.

    The centre of Shrewsbury is really nice. Very historic

    Get the bus or a cab from the town centre

    If on the train, you could pull the emergency chord just as it passes the ground, down the embankment over the fence and you are there.
    Fine might be cheaper than the taxi?
    With your username, I'd have thought you'd prefer a stroll!

    That was the old ground (where the groundsman had a coracle to retrieve balls that went in the river) 
  • It’s a long walk but very pleasant before play off defeat as was summer and the ground is out in the countryside … well it was until they slapped a ground there and various retail outlets ! 
  • Anyone got any deals on the trains ? 
    Getting best 164 for 2 return at this stage ?

    Try split ticket.com . Plenty of returns for £40 to £50. Imagine it will send you via Crewe on the way up, which is an extra 30 mins travelling time. 

    Cheapest is for £27.00, gets in at 2:10. But probably an extra hour travelling on way up.

    No its the new ground as well.
    If you park past the shopping park in their designated car park, you have to pass under the railway and walk alongside it for 500m until you reach the ground

    But you can get the Thameslink to St Pancras and walk to Euston from there instead. ( Change at London Bridge if needs be)

    ok thanks. tfl website 

    https://tfl.gov.uk/campaign/tube-strike

    key bit "Full-day strikes are planned on Friday 26 November and Saturday 18 December between 04:30 and 04:29 the following day". This affects most lines.

    Question is how much the finishing at 4.29 will affect the next day. 

    Also "on the Central and Victoria lines only".  "Strikes are planned for the following dates from 20:30 until 04:29 the next day: 27 November, 3 December, 4 December, 10 December, 11 December, 17 December."

    where there will be severe disruption. 
  • 141 tickets left
  • Anyone know what our allocation was ? If it's the normal 1000 it's a good effort ! 
  • After my Morecombe exploits I'm sacking this one and doing gateshead instead
  • Looking forward to this one. My second trip there. First was the Ricky Holmes midweeker.
