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

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

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
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

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

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. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
