How do I get tickets for Sri Lanka v England – 2nd Test?

It is likely this match will take place behind closed doors, however if tickets do become available check the official Sri Lanka Cricket website here for the latest information.

Travel to Galle

Bus – the bus station is located next to the cricket ground and has links to Colombo (3 hours), Hikkaduwa (30 minutes) and Matara (1 hour).

Train – if you are looking to get to/from Colombo, I would highly recommend taking the scenic train journey running alongside the Indian Ocean (2 hours). There are also services to Matara (1 hour), Mirissa (90 minutes) and Kandy (6½ hours). The railway station is approximately 1km away from the fort area of Galle.

Where to stay in Galle

I would recommend staying in the Fort area of Galle, with the Frangipani Motel being right in the middle. Clean and comfortable, the owners offered a fantastic breakfast in the morning.

Rooms from £17 a night. Read other traveller’s reviews and book your stay on TripAdvisor by clicking on the links above, or search for other Galle accommodation by clicking here.
