Recommended road directions

Take the A404 south, leading to the A404(M) and the westbound M4. At junction 20, branch left and follow the signs “The South West” to join the M5. At the end of the M5 follow the A38 and then turn left onto the A380 (signposted Torquay). Continue through Kingskerwell, and at the Kerswell Gardens roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Riviera Way A3022 (signposted Torquay). After one mile, turn left towards Babbacombe (signposted Babbacombe (A379)). After one mile turn left into Westhill Road for Warbro Road. TUFC is signposted on nearing the ground.

 

Coach Travel

The OWWSA coaches are now fully booked. They will leave the Railway Station at 8.10am and the Cinema at 8.30am.

 

Travelling by rail?

This trip is possible travelling from London Paddington and changing at Newton Abbott. Fastest journey times are a little under three hours. Note however that the ground is over two miles away from the railway station and to walk will take you about 40 minutes. Alternatively a taxi will cost you around £5. If you wish to walk, directions are as follows: On leaving the station turn left into Rathmore Road. Follow the road down crossing into Falkland Road. Proceed by way of Lucius Street and Tor Hill Road into Union Street. Take the St. Marychurch Road and climb the hill towards Babbacombe, then take the third turning on the right into Bronshill Road. The floodlights of Plainmoor will be visible after a few minutes on the left.

 

Facilities for away fans

The ground capacity is 6,500 with seating for 2,950. Around 1,100 away supporters can be accommodated in the covered Marsh Toyota Away Terrace, at one end of the ground. In addition up to 500 seats can also be made in the new Bristow's Bench Stand on one side of the stadium. Both these areas are covered. The acoustics in the away terrace are particularly good, meaning that relatively few away supporters can still really make some noise from this area. The facilities in this area are rather basic. For Car Parking, it’s on street parking (see Around the Stadium below).

 

Around the stadium

The supporters club 'Boots & Laces' behind the main stand does allow in away supporters. Another option is “The George Inn” on Babbacombe Road. This is about a 10-minute walk away from the ground. Located handily around the corner in Princes Street is the Hanburys Fish & Chip shop which has on occasion won national awards. Further on at the bottom of Princes Street you will find the “Buccaneer Inn”. From here you can enjoy some great views along the coast. There is also plenty of street parking available in this area. Finally on Babbacombe Road is the “Dog & Duck” which welcomes away fans. The town centre is about a 15-minute walk.
