Turn off onto the B1047 sign posted for Cambridge Airport. At the top of the slip road turn right towards Fen Ditton.

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. Otherwise some off road car parking is 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 two miles from the ground and a good 30-minutes brisk walk. However Citibus C3 runs from the
Railway station and through the City Centre every ten minutes during the day, journey time 10-15 minutes. This stops within a few yards walk from the ground (Ditton Walk stop). Earliest return train times off Cambridge are at 17:47 (fast), 17:55, 18:04 and 18:15 (fast).
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 1,500 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 include the legendary bacon rolls (£3). The programme is available priced £3 from sellers around the ground and the club shop/Main Stand retail outlet.
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.
