train travel to RICOH, Coventry

Next month I am attending an event in the RICOH stadium

and staying at Novotel, nearby.

Travelling up by train, from South Wales.

Can a nybody tell me the name of the nearest station or is it best to get a taxi from the main station ?

Extract from the Ricoh website

"From the train station

The railway station for the Ricoh Arena is the main Coventry railway station, which is in the City Centre and approximately 6 miles away. There are always black cabs immediately outside the station and it is a 10 to 15 minute taxi ride costing around £8.80

There is a taxi drop off point at the Ricoh Arena outside the main Atrium entrance."

You will need to get a bus or taxi from Coventry station to Longford / Exhall. The hotel is 100 yards from the bus stop.

You can walk around 400 yards to the stadium from the Novotel.

The Coventry - Bedworth - Nuneaton railway line goes within 200 yards of the Ricoh Arena, but no-one thought to build two platforms for a stadium station whilst all the diggers and concrete mixers were on site during its construction.

Now a station will cost millions!
