How Do I Get There?
Start planning your travel to the Men’s Cricket World Cup in Somerset now! The County Ground in Taunton is situated close the town centre and just a handy half mile from the Taunton train station.
Traffic may be hectic on the day of the matches and there will be no parking available at the venue. We advise taking the official walking route from Taunton Station to the County Ground, set by the event’s organisers. For additional safety, the route will be staffed by official World Cup Cricketeers.
Alternatively, there will also be a Park and Ride service available. The times will be confirmed at the start of 2019.
