POST CODE: CB5 8LN

Recommended road directions
Take the M40 towards London and the M25 northbound (clockwise). Continue to Junction 27 and take the M11 signposted Cambridge. Exit at Junction 14 and join the A14 towards Newmarket. Turn off onto the B1047 sign posted for Cambridge Airport. At the top of the slip road turn right towards Fen Ditton. Go through Fen Ditton until you reach a T Junction, where at the traffic lights you turn right into Newmarket Road. Go straight across the roundabout (there is a McDonalds on one corner) and you will come to Abbey Stadium on your left hand side.

NB Please allow plenty of time for the journey due to construction work on the M11 and A14.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 99

Recommended area for car parking
There is no parking available for away fans at the ground. There is some parking to be had on the streets surrounding the stadium. Also there is some off road car parking available behind the ground. To reach this, continue past the ground entrance for another 400 yards and turn left at the traffic lights into Coldhams Lane. Continue for about 300 yards, crossing a small roundabout and over a railway bridge. The car park entrance is on the left about 50 yards beyond the bridge.

Using the train?
Great Northern operate a regular service from London Kings Cross, fastest journey time 46 minutes. Note that Cambridge rail station is over 2 miles from the ground. However Citibus C3 runs from the railway station and through the City Centre, journey time 10-15 minutes. This stops within a few yards walk from the ground (Ditton Walk stop). Return train times off Cambridge are at 22:15, 22:30 and 23:22.

Facilities for away fans
Ground capacity is 9,617 (4,376 seated). Away fans are housed in the Marstons Smooth South Stand at one end of the ground where up to 1,600 supporters can be seated. This relatively new covered, all seated stand has good facilities and gives good views of the playing action. The entrance to the away section is reached by walking along a path through what appears to be a common field that is used from time to time to graze cows! The refreshments on offer included the legendary bacon rolls (£3).

Facilities around the ground
There is a supporters club at the ground that normally allows in away supporters. The club charges a £1.50 entrance fee and also serves food. With a number of pubs in the local area having closed down, there is little choice for away fans in the way of a pre-match pint. Along Newmarket Road going towards the city centre is the Wrestlers pub, which also offers Thai food.
