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.
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 3pm. Travel prices are £20 for adults, £19 for seniors, and £18 for juniors. The price for non-members is £24 (no refund if game is cancelled). Note that OWWSA has added card payment to their methods of payment. Members will be able to pay at the Vere Suite, on the coach or by telephone. Non members are required to pay before travelling. If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) you need to do so by Sunday November 20th at 5pm.
Using the train?
This is not really as an option as the last train eastwards from Newport is at 21:43 (arriving Paddington at 00:34). One would likely have to leave before the end of the game to ensure making that train. The outward journey is no problem with a half hourly service from Paddington, fastest journey time 1hr 45mins.
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. Just a five minute walk away from the away turnstiles is the Excelsior Club, located on Corporation Road (with the entrance to the away section behind you, turn right and the Club is down on the left). The Club is free to enter and is family friendly. 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.
