    Hi guys been reading the forum for around 18 months now, finally decided to join up and post a few comments.
    I have been living in Bournemouth since last january, and travelling back and forth from Cradley Heath for the last 6 years, have to say getting to Bournemouth isnt the easiest of places to get to, there are 2 usual routes that i use from the Midlands, the scenic route less heavy on petrol, or the quicker route but more miles and heavier on petrol; the quicker route is M6 South, M5, M42, M40, A34, M3, M27, A31, and finally the A338 into Bournemouth, once you pass the welcome to Bournemouth signs take your 2nd exit off the A338 signposted Kings Park, in only a matter of yards/metres there is a small Island straight ahead is Kings Park, and thats where the Goldsands/Dean Court Stadium is on your left.
    If anyone is travelling down by Train, then once you arrive at Bournemouth Station, you leave the station with ASDA Store on your right, cross over the Holdenhurst Road, and head left towards and past the Lions Head Pub, basically you continue along Holdenhurst Road, continue past the Queens Park Pub/Hotel until you come to the same small Island as if you were driving, turn right and thats Kings Park, i would guess the walk along Holdenhurst Road would take around 30 minutes its a bloody long road (I drive down it almost every day) plenty of places to get a bite to eat, i can reccomend Little Asia, theres a decent Chippy halfway along on the right, if you have any Union Business the "Unite Union" has its HQ along there, and if you know where to look along there you can find some other :D business, but thats nowt to do with football and usually has a happy ending, so definately nothing to do with Wolves :D

    If anyone wants the Scenic route, well thats down past Swindon, Marlborough, Salisbury, Ringwood, and on into Bournemouth via the A338 :goodnight:

    Just noticed nobody replied to you Wolves Heathen. Welcome to MolMix. Suspect its a bit early to be thinking about Bournemouth away.

    I used to travel that way quite regularly. Another route is a mix of your two routes. Take the M5 to J11A Birdlip/A417 to M4 J15(Swindon)/M4 East to J13 Newbury/A34 South etc. It is often quicker and usually quieter from Cradley to Newbury than the M42/M40/A34 route.

    A warm welcome to you!

    I think I'll have to miss Bournemouth unfortunately! It was one I had earmarked as a definite away day, but with it being mid week its nigh on impossible for me to do!

    I'm trying to get a ticket. Journey for me is along Sunnyside road to Parkside Road then along Yarmouth Road. Then Cut along Branksome Wood Road and left along Glennferness Avenue and right along Elgin Rd to Talbot Woods. Then along Wimborne Rd and head right to Charmister and along Richmond park road to find somewhere to park.

    I'll be there local match for me too, agree those are the 2 best routes to use if driving.
    If you don't fancy the walk from the train there are a few buses that will get you most of the way, X1, X2, X6 http://www.morebus.co.uk/football.shtml
    or get train to Pokesdown station which is nearer the ground (1 mile)

    Thanks for your kind words guys, yeah its a little early to post for this match maybe, but i thought it might give you guys who were unsure of going some idea of how long it will take. I usually do it in around 3 1/2 hours driving steady and thinking of the cost :D but it can be done in 3 hours. Pity its a midweek game, It would have been perfect for a Saturday KO and a nice weekend.
