Travel
By Adrian Wood

POST CODE: IP1 2DA

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the M40 towards London and at J1A take the M25(N) signed M1/M11/Watford. Continue to J28 and take the A12 signed Chelmsford. When you reach the junction of the A12 and A14, just south of Ipswich, take the A1214 (London Road) towards Ipswich. As you approach the town centre, there’s a Sainsbury’s supermarket on the left – at this point, go straight on past Sainsbury’s and then almost immediately right onto West End road.  Take the first left (after about half a mile) onto Sir Alf Ramsey Way and you will arrive at the stadium.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 113 (approx. journey time a little over 2 hours)

Recommended area for car parking
There is no official stadium car park, but there is parking all around the ground.  The closest is a large NCP on Portman Road (right by the away end), which usually has spaces up to around 45 minutes before kick-off.  There’s also a large car park on West End Road (5 minutes’ walk away) and at the railway station (less than 10 minutes).  The town centre is less than 10 minutes’ walk and has numerous car parks.

Using the train?
From London, there are 2-3 trains an hour, all from London Liverpool Street.  The train company is Greater Anglia operated by Abellio East Anglia (www.greateranglia.co.uk).  The faster trains go on to Norwich, are air-conditioned and most have a buffet bar. Ipswich station is only 5 to 10 minutes’ walk from the ground. You will see the Portman Road floodlights in the distance as your train comes into the station.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 30,311 (all seated). Portman Road is a traditional ground, with 4 separate stands. The away end is usually blocks V1 and V2 of the Cobbold Stand. This gives you a good side-stand upper-tier view of the action, though it is an older stand, dating from the 1970s. Turnstiles open 90 minutes before kickoff and fans are searched on entry (note that bags larger than 40 x 40 x 10cms are not allowed). The matchday programme can be purchased outside the stadium from the blue, tardis-like kiosks. Programmes cost £3.50 and are not for sale inside the ground.

Time on your hands?
The Station Hotel (formerly the Riverside Hotel) is opposite the station, and is the official away pub.  It is roomy, has a garden and TV screens, and three beers on handpump from the Greene King stable. The “Punch & Judy” pub on Cardinal Park, which is close to the ground also comes recommended as a pub which is family orientated and where both sets of fans can enjoy a drink. Note that most pubs immediately around the ground are for home fans only.
