We are really pleased you are interested in coming to the Victorian Fayre this year. Worcester is ideally located between junctions 6 and 7 of the M5 with road access into the city centre being well signposted. City centre car parks get very busy during the event and we recommend finding alternative modes of transport or getting here early to find a space. A Park and Ride service will operate on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the event and the city is well-served by public transport with two train stations and a centrally-located bus station. Please see below for details.
Park and Ride Bus Service
First Bus Park & Ride service (number 910) is a quick and cheap way of getting to and from the Fayre – allowing you to enjoy everything on offer!
The Park & Ride goes from County Hall (WR5 2NP) to Worcester Crowngate Bus Station (WR1 3PA), which is just a short walk away from the Victorian Fayre.
Cycle parking is available in several locations around the city centre (see the Fayre map for more details – look for the bike icon). Secure cycle storage is available in Crowngate Shopping Centre (WR1 3LE) with a repair station, pumps and benches, and undercover parking is also available for a small number of cycles at Cathedral Square Shopping Centre (WR1 2QE).
Worcester is located on the crossroads of two main lines. There is a regular service to Birmingham while Worcester to London Paddington takes just over 2 hours.
Worcester city centre is served by two train stations:
Foregate Street Station (located 0.3 miles from the Fayre)
Shrub Hill Station (located 0.6 miles from the Fayre)
West Midlands Railway offers a frequent and fast service from major cities including Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Hereford to both Worcester stations. Visit www.westmidlandsrailway.co.uk to book tickets.
