The Rugby Groud Guide

Travel

Air: Bristol Airport (bristolairport.co.uk) is eight miles south-west of the centre and served by easyJet, BMI Regional and Flybe.

Flyer Airport Express Link buses (flyer.bristolairport.co.uk) take about 30 minutes to reach town.

 

Rail:

Bristol is an important rail hub, with regular services to London provided by First Great Western (www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk) and services to northern England and Scotland mainly covered by Cross Country (www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk)

The nearest railway station is Parson Street, which is about a ten-minute walk from the ground.

Bristol Temple Meads Station is at least two miles from the ground, and a good ¾ hour walk.

Road:

Leave the M5 at Junction 18 and travel along the Portway (A4) , following signs for the Bristol Airport/Taunton (A38)

As you go over the swing bridge (Brunel Way), branch left into Winterstoke Road, and you will see the ground on your left.

FROM M4: At junction 19, exit onto M32 towards Bristol. Continue on A4032. Turn left at A4044/Bond Street. Continue to follow A4044. At Temple Circus Gyratory, take the 2nd exit onto A4/Templegate. At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto A370/York Road. Continue to follow A370. Go through one roundabout. Slight left to merge onto Brunel Way. Take the next left at traffic lights for Ashton Gate.

 

Parking:

Parking at the ground is for permit holders only.

Parking around Ashton Gate has been severely restricted and  many streets have double yellow lines.

The Bedminster Cricket Club on Clanage Road (A369) could offer parking at around £5 a car. It’s then a 5-10 minute walk to the stadium.

Otherwise it’s a case of finding some street parking.

SAT NAV: BS3 2EJ

Avonline – Postcode: BS3 2AX

The car park is approximately 10 minute walk from the stadium. A minibus will be available to shuttle supporters from this car park to the stadium (priority will be given to the elderly and ambulant disability supporters) There is no cost for this service.

Parking bays are available on a seasonal basis or on a match by match basis. (Match by match should be booked in advance by calling Supporter Services)


By Shuttle Bus

Alongside the route from Horfield Common to Ashton Gate, a new South Bristol route has been introduced.

The service will run from Whitchurch to the stadium, stopping at Wharnecliffe Gardens, Fortfield Road, Whitchurch Lane, William Jessop Way, Bishport Avenue, Four Acres, Highridge Road, Church Road and Bishopsworth Road on the way to Ashton Gate.

Costs have been frozen at a £2 single fare and a £3 return fare.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both.

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
