A great venue for rugby is spoiled by the infrastructure. Last time we saw Wasps we parked in one of the many "pop up" car parks for match days. This meant a 20 mins walk and gridlock. So we thought let the train take the...More

Followed official signs for parking reasonably near to the stadium. No prices advertised on the hoardings or gate. Asked the price and told £20. The girl then went on to say that she did not set the price levels!!! THIS IS A COMPLETE RIP OFF....More

The Ricoh is a medium sized event arena located on the outskirts of Coventry. There is plenty of parking and a good standard of facilities.

This is a good modern arena. Sight lines are good. If you go when Waps are playing they make it a real family experience with lots of things going on. Food is ok and pretty much what you'd expect at a sports ground. Parking is...More

I'm only talking about the parking by the way. Expensive and a bit of a trek. The stadium itself is an excellent facility and I'm glad that Wasps have chosen to base themselves there. The views from the stands for a Rugby game could be...More

I can only tell you we went to see Bruce Springsteen and he started at 6-45 and finished promptly at 10 o'clock so it's a fair assumption that that is the case. Hope this helps.

I agree with holidaymaker0103, you could park in the Arena Retail Park (Tesco) which is right next to the Ricoh, you just walk under the railway bridge. They only control parking on Football/Rugby/Concert days so you should... More
