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.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open
