Recommended road directions
Take the A404 south, leading to the A404(M) and continue to the westbound M4. Leave the M4 at Junction 24 and take the B4237, signposted Newport (E). After approximately 2.5 five miles turn left at a set of traffic lights, signposted B4237 (there is also the George pub on a right hand corner). Go under a bridge and at the next set of traffic lights turn right into Corporation Road. After passing an ATS garage on your right, you will see the away supporters’ entrance on your left. For the stadium main entrance take the next left into Grafton Road.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 121

Recommended area for car parking
There is no parking available at the ground for supporters. Street parking is available in the nearby streets but please pay attention to any parking restriction signs. Alternatively you can use one of the city centre car parks, for example Kingsway Shopping Centre, which are around a 15 minute walk away.

Using the train?
There is a good service from London Paddington with the fastest services taking around 2 hours. Newport railway station is situated around a quarter of a mile away from the stadium. Exit the station and turn left along the main (Queensway) road. Follow this road until you reach a large roundabout. Take the pedestrian underpass underneath the roundabout and at the centre turn left towards Clarence Place/River Usk. After you have come back up to street level you will see a river bridge in front of you. Cross the bridge and take the first right hand turn into Rodney Parade and the stadium is on the left.

Facilities for away fans
Away fans are mostly housed on one side of the Bisley Stand. This stand is all seated and covered and being relatively new the facilities inside are good. In addition a small temporary block of open seating is also made available at the South End. The seating in the Bisley Stand gives the better and more comfortable view, but both areas share the same facilities. There is a food outlet just inside the ground by the turnstiles. The entrance to the away supporters section is at the opposite end of the stadium to the home areas and is accessed along Corporation Road (so no need to go through the main stadium entrance). It is poorly signposted and is literally a small pathway situated in-between some residential houses. There are a couple of blue poles that mark the entrance.

Facilities around the ground
There is a Clubhouse at the ground (inside the home main entrance) which admits away supporters. In addition away fans have their own bar at the top of the Bisley Stand. Recommended local hostelry is the Wetherspoon pub on Chepstow Road called the “Godfrey Morgan” which is only a ten minute walk from the away turnstiles.  Along Chepstow Road there are a number of food outlets including a couple of fish and chip shops and a Greggs Bakery.
