Recommended road directions
Take the A404 south, leading to the A404(M) and continue to the westbound M4. Leave the M4 at J20 and take the M5 (s/p The South West). Continue forward at J31. Keep in right hand lanes and then continue forward onto the A38. Continue on the A38 Devon Expressway until the junction with the A386, signposted Home Park, City Centre, Ferry Port, and Tavistock. At the roundabout as you come off the A38, take the second exit A386, signposted Plymouth Argyle Home Park, Ferry Port. Stay on this road for approximately a mile and the stadium is on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 222

Recommended area for car parking
There is quite a large car park at the ground, which is free. It is operated on a 'first in before the game, first out after the game basis'. The car park is normally full by 2.30pm on match days. There is some street parking if you drive past the ground, heading away from the city centre.

Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 08.00. Travel prices are £26 for adults, £25 for seniors, and £24 for juniors. Places cost £3 extra for non-members. If you wish to book by phone (01494 520179) or by e-mail ( you need to do so by Thursday (Jan 28th) at 17.00 hrs.

Using the train?
There is a good direct service from London Paddington, fastest journey time being a little over three hours, for example depart Paddington at 10.00 arrive Plymouth at 13.12.  The quickest route to Home Park from the station is via Central Park. At the roundabout just downhill from the station on the A386 turn right into Central Park Avenue. Then take the second left into Holdsworth Street, which will lead you up a steep hill into Central Park, where you'll see the ground as soon as you reach the top of the hill. The best direct service on the return leg is the 17:54 departure that arrives Paddington at 22.00.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 16,388 (all seated). During 2001 Home Park was transformed, with three sides of the ground being completely re-built. This included both ends and one side of the ground. Away fans are housed in the Barn Park End, which is all seated and covered. This is the stand behind the goal on the Central Park side of the stadium. This is a modern stand that offers good facilities and excellent views of the playing action.

Facilities around the ground
The most popular pub with visiting fans appears to be the Britannia in Wolseley Road. This is a large Wetherspoons outlet, about a 10-minute walk from the ground. It tends to get very busy with fans queuing to get in but the doormen are pretty efficient so you shouldn’t have to wait too long to get in. Near to the pub is normally a van selling pasties. Opposite the Britannia is the Embassy Club which is best avoided by away fans. Otherwise alcohol is available within the ground.
