Travelling by Train

Buying tickets in Advance

You can buy your ticket online in advance on the rail website or at the station when you travel. Visit http://www.nationalrail.co.uk.

Buying tickets on Arrival

When buying your ticket it is important to get the pronunciation of Worcester correct! It sounds like “Wooster” – not “Wor-chester”! You can get a one-way ticket (a single) or a return by asking: “A single to Worcester please” or “A return to Worcester please”. It is generally cheaper to buy a return if you can.

Worcester Stations

There are 2 stations in Worcester – Worcester Foregate Street and Worcester Shrub Hill. It doesn’t matter which one you arrive at as long as you tell us! Some trains stop at both but not all of them. Kingsway is very close to Foregate Street station and generally this is the one where your homestay will meet you.

On Arrival in Worcester

Your homestay or one of our drivers will meet you at the station but obviously you need to tell us which train you will be on and which station you will get out at! If you miss your train please phone us.

When you arrive come out of the station and wait near the exit. Whoever is meeting you will be close to the exit – they will not come on to the platform to find you!

From the airport there is a free shuttle train which will take you to Birmingham International station in about 60 seconds.
