GETTING THERE

By Car…

From the East: take the A38 to Plymouth and exit at Manadon roundabout, signposted “Plymouth Argyle and Ferry Port” and A386. Take the second exit at the roundabout, following the direction of the flyover, to the left. Travel a mile on this road, and Home Park will appear on your left.

From the West: head towards Plymouth on the A38, and take the junction indicated above, but take the fifth exit, to the right.

By Train…

You have a 15-20 minute picturesque (though uphill) walk through the back of Central Park to reach the ground. Alternatively, you could get a taxi to the ground which will take about five minutes.

PARKING

Home Park has a very large – and free – car park just outside the ground. It is council-run, and is typically a park-and-ride car park into the city. It is free to use on match-days, but will begin to fill up before fixtures.

Be careful parking on streets in the nearby area. Some require parking permits, some do not. Be extra aware of parking restrictions in the Life Centre next to the ground, as there are frequently enforcement officers on hand to clamp down on illegal parking there. 

ENTERTAINMENT & REFRESHMENTS

The Pubs…

Just a ten-minute walk away from the ground is a sizeable wetherspoons, the Britannia. From car park outside the ground, all you have to do is turn left and the pub is down the road on the right hand corner.

A similar distance away (but going in the opposite direction across the Park) is the Hyde Park Social Club which welcomes visiting supporters. The club has a range of draught beer, cider and lager on sale such as Carling, Worthington, Thatchers, Guinness, Wolfrock, Carling Dark Fruits Cider and Offshore Pilsner. In addition, a range of hot food is available too. Limited free parking is available at the Club itself, or alternatively, there is on-street parking in the local area. The Club charges £2 for a weekend pass to enter, including on matchdays (kids accompanied by an adult are admitted free). 

The Food…

Hyde Park Social Club offers a range of hot food for visiting supporters.

PROGRAMME

Copies of Plymouth's official matchday magazine can be purchased around the ground - for £3.
