Please buy your tickets in advance,
Good idea to buy your tickets for the trip to Bristol while your at Home to Bolton on Saturday
there has been no pay on the day for AWAY FANS this season,can't see this being changed
Coming by road.
Do NOT USE M4/M32 route and don't try to negotiate the roads and streets of Bristol
YOU WILL GET LOST
If you are coming by road use M4/M5 southbound to junction 18(Avonmouth) then follow signs A4 Bristol airport
It looks the long way round but its quicker.
Parking is normally in the streets around the area as long as you are there by 1pm please don't block drive ways or park on corners.
Traffic wardens do book any cars that are parked incorrectly
If you are coming by train there is a local train service to PARSON STREET from Bristol Temple Meads
at 12:25 13:25 13:56 and 14:25
Good train times as most trains from the North (or from the London direction) arrive at quarter to the hour or quarter past the hour
it takes you two thirds of the way to the ground and walk the rest of the way return by train to Bristol T.M. is at 17:37pm.
You will pass Sainsburys on the left with restaurant,Robins pub again on your left hand side
When you approach the ground I suggest you walk past wickes using the pavement
as the concourse area behind the big new stand gets very congested with bodies.
Unless you want to listen/year the band playing live music
Please make sure you get your train ticket showing PARSON STREET
We are trying to promote PARSON STREET for football fans till Ashton gate halt comes on line.
Split train tickets are available to Bristol from the London area and also group save is available for trains from the london area
BUT,group save is NOT availables on crosscountry trains
If there are at least three of you get a taxi to the ground
Make sure the taxi driver drops you in the Ashton Road end as it a very long walk round from the other end
or use the brown buses from the bottom of the incline of the station.
Which depart approximate 13:55pm with returns just after the match finishes
On your return to London or the North the trains leave Bristol Temple Meads at 17:30pm and I think you will struggle to get back to Bristol Temple meads for 17:30pm
Casualty and Holby City were filmed in the City don't ask me about either of the programmes cos I think their both rubbish
The young ones was also filmed in the BS7 area of the City(actually its Bishopston)
Finally the block of flats on the left behind the dolman stand side as you are in the away end is "the" block of flats in "fools and horses"
Bring your camera and turn up early if you want to take any photo's
Pubs possibly best one are in the cumberland road basin area novia scotia pump house and the cottage.
Leave your car there if you can and walk to the ground
Buy your match day programme before you enter the away end.
BBC Radio station is radio Bristol which has frequencies and 94:9 and DAB (and 95:5 up till 3pm),
and the match commentary will be on BBC radio Bristol DAB.
I see the allocation is 2,641and in previous seasons the Derby following is as follows
If you need any further help/advice just ask.
