What time to arrive

Post by maddybro07 »

Does anybody know what a good time to arrive would be? I’m planning on leaving at 7am from Shrewsbury, and getting there for 8am but I am worried that this is too early. It would be really helpful if anyone could help me, thank you!!

If you're driving then get there as early as possible as the traffic gets bad around 9am. It's better to get there early and chill than be in slow moving tail backs on the M54. If you're going by train then it doesn't really matter as the services are regular and quick 👍

Just for those using the M54, usual things apply with hard shoulder between J2-3 for Cosford only

I’m travelling by car from Birmingham I know the gates open at 08:00. What time would be best for me to leave Birmingham so I don’t hit too much traffic?

Leave now, then you'll be way ahead of any traffic
