The ground itself is very good with a great atmosphere. I would recommend this for families and individuals as it was well marshalled. The main problem is parking and I recommend going by coach or using rail services.

As you would expect when Coventry City have an important game the crowds are large, it's just a shame that they can't have more staff at the bars to reduce the queues. Great venue but people are packed in the foyer standing in line to...More

Went to see Wasps v Saints on 29/04/18. Very family friendly stadium. The queues were very long for food and drink. The toilets were clean and well stocked which is always good at large events.

The Ricoh Arena is the home to Wasps RFU and I was here to see them play Northampton Saints. Usually the South stand is closed but open for this game (29/04) which made a nice change. Shame the venue was not full though. The atmosphere...More

Visited Ricoh arena as a contractor building a stand in one of the halls. Stayed in the Doubletree Hotel and ate in the Mill Bar. While on site building the site staff were very friendly and helpful

There is a large retail park with shopping and restaurants close by. Not sure what time that stays open to but sure you could kill a few hours there.
