Travel advice from Football Supporters' Federation - www.fsf.org.uk.

By Train

There are direct half hourly services between Norwich and London Liverpool Street most days, hourly on Sundays. The journey takes between just under two hours and about two and a half hours depending on day and time. You can also travel from Kings Cross but you have to change trains.

There is a direct service which also links Norwich to Cambridge and central trains offer connecting services from the Midlands, North of England and Scotland via Peterborough. The ground is approximately a five minute walk from the station but you can't really miss it as the train pulls in. If you were asleep at the time, just turn left and follow the dual carriageway past the car parks and supermarket.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Car

From London and the south

Travel to the east side of Norwich, the exit the A47 at the A1042, Norwich North/East Exit.

Following the signs for Norwich, go straight over the next two roundabouts, past the Griffin public house. At the next roundabout, take the first exit into 'Yarmouth Road', past Thorpe Fish & Chip shop, and through two sets of traffic lights. At this point you will be travelling alongside the River Wensum, and past most of the pubs in the pub guide! so take your pick! Once you get to the Harvey Lane traffic lights, we recommend that you start to look for a car park in any of the back streets (at this point most of them are not permit holders only). From here, the ground is about 15/20 walk. Again keep going straight into the city and you will pass The Mustard Pot. Keep going straight over the railway bridge, and you will able to see the ground. The away fans are located in the first corner of the ground that you come to.

Eating & Drinking advice from Football Supporters' Federation - www.fsf.org.uk

The main away fans pub is the Compleat Angler, directly opposite the station.

If you have travelled by train and fancy a bite to eat there's a KFC nearby. On exiting the station, go straight over the traffic lights, (over the bridge) into Prince of Wales Road. The Kentucky is about 150 yards down on the right. You know what you are going to get in KFC!

Once you are in the ground, the facilities available to the away fans are limited with only snacks (pies, pasties, etc) being served in the away end. Unusually for a football ground, these snacks are really good. Of course it must be the influence of Delia Smith!
