How to get to the city   

               

               

Rail:        The nearest train station is Newport Central, which is about a seven-minute walk  from the ground.

                As you come out of the main entrance to the station, turn left and, using the underpass, go under the Old Green Interchange, cross the Clarence Place bridge and take the first right after the bridge.

               

Road      From the West:

                Take Junction 26 off the M4

                Take 3rd exit off roundabout onto Malpas Road

                Take 2nd exit off roundabout

                At next roundabout take 1st exit across River Usk

                At traffic lights bear right onto Chepstow Road

                Take 1st right onto Cedar Road

                Take 1st right onto Corporation Road

                Take 1st left onto Grafton Road

                Rodney Parade is on your left hand side.

               

                From the East:

                Take Junction 25a from the M4

                Take 1st exit off roundabout onto Heidenheim Way

                Take 1st exit off flyover

                Take 2nd exit off roundabout

                At next roundabout take 1st exit across River Usk

                At traffic lights bear right onto Chepstow Road

                Take 1st right onto Cedar Road

                Take 1st right onto Corporation Road

                Take 1st left onto Grafton Road

                Rodney Parade is on your left hand side.

 

 

Parking: There is no parking available at the ground for supporters and there is a “residents only” parking scheme in operation around the stadium.

However, it is a bit of an odd scheme as most nearby roads seem to have parking restrictions on one side only. So it would appear street parking is possible...just pay attention to any parking restriction signs.

Alternatively, you can use one of the city centre car parks, such as Kingsway Shopping Centre, which cost £2 for five hours.

 

 

               

Bus         If you're travelling from the Bus Station then take any of the following services and get off at the bottom end of Chepstow Road (next to the traffic lights).Its then a two-minute walk to the ground via Corporation Road

                Services 8A and 8C

                Services 42, 43 and 44

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.

Rugby’s Blame Game (Thu, 12 Apr 2018)

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
