Directions from Station:               Bath Spa is just a five minute walk from the Recreation Ground. Go straight out of the station and cross the road into Manvers Street. Go past the police station on your right then turn right at the traffic lights.   Walk over the bridge-you will see the ground on your left.

On the far side of the bridge, go down a covered spiral staircase to the river-bank.

Walk along the river to the Recreation Ground.

Follow the signs for the town centre on the A4. After the first set of traffic lights the Lambridge Park and Ride (Bath Rugby's old training ground) is immediately to your left.

                The Park & Ride is open for 1st XV fixtures-though not for evening games

In addition to Lambridge Park & Ride there are several Council-run Park & Ride sites convenient for the Recreation Ground.
