Edgbaston Stadium

Edgbaston stadium UK

The Calthorpe Estate, who had developed the manor of Edgbaston into an exclusive Birmingham suburb over the course of the 19th century, originally owned the land that now makes up Edgbaston Stadium and a cricket ground would be a great asset to add to the area.

Club secretary, William Ansell believed that Birmingham’s large population and comprehensive railway connections would make Warwickshire a first-class county headquarters as well as give the ground test status.

Record attendance at a County Championship match at Edgbaston is 28,000 against Lancashire in the championship-winning season of 1951, and the record for a single day of a Test Match is 32,000 against the West Indies in 1957.
Of all England’s Test Grounds Edgbaston is the least disrupted by rain – losing an average of fewer than 90 minutes of play per match between 1979 and 1988, compared to over 8 hours per match on other grounds. You can reach Edgbaston cricket stadium via train, shuttle bus, regular bus & Coach. You can also take taxi from New Street Station.

We suggest not going by your own car since there is no parking space available during match days. The nearest parking space is half a mile away.
