It’s a long way to go, so if you haven’t got a ticket…. don’t do it, they won’t be on sale on the day. For those that are going nd have a ticket, here is a bit of info from a Bristol Fan

Bristol City fan here


Coming by road.

Do NOT USE M4/M32 route and don’t try to negotiate the roads and streets of Bristol
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 midday please don’t block drive ways or park on corners.
If you are coming by train there is a local train service to PARSON STREET from Bristol Temple Meads
at 12:09

it takes you two thirds of the way to the ground and walk the rest of the way
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 look at the John Atyeo statue

Please make sure you get your train ticket showing PARSON STREET if travelling by train
We are trying to promote PARSON STREET for football fans till Ashton gate halt comes on line.
Make sure the taxi driver drops you in the Ashton Road end as it a very long walk round from the other end

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.
Buy your match day programme before you enter the away end.

Pubs: best ones are along the Cumberland Roads area, I suggest you park your car and then walk to the ground.
Please circulate to any other football forums and footy fan you may deem fit
If you need any further info, don’t be afraid to ask
If your eyesight is bad sit on the left hand side as you look at the pitch, as the game is shown live
while the match is being played.
All goals and highlights are normally shown except for any controversial incidents.
