The South Stand is next to the old away terrace and can be reached by using the same route
Access to the away terrace is gained from the main car park; however there is no parking allocated for away fans in the car park.
For those fans travelling by rail, the nearest railway station is several miles from the stadium.

PARKING – MATCHDAY:
The stadium car park is only accessible to permit holders, where attendants will direct car parking. Spaces are not available on a match-by-match basis.
With very few exceptions, finding a space within a five to ten-minute walk is relatively easy - parking on Muller Road is a popular choice as is Gloucester Road although this is often more difficult.
If Muller Road and Gloucester Road are busy then there are many other roads across the other side of Gloucester Road - travel past the Wellington pub along Kellaway Avenue and you'll find another area of roads often used for match day parking.
Although there is plenty of on-street parking available, please be reminded that it is a predominately residential area so please ensure that private driveways are not obstructed.
A vehicle tow-away scheme is in operation, it is in the interests of away supporters to adhere to the parking regulations in the area.
