13 April 2019

The Bantams take on Bristol Rovers this afternoon - in Sky Bet League One - and we have put together a helpful Away Day Guide to help you enjoy all of today's action ahead of the 3.00pm contest.

The club moved to the stadium in 1996 and two years later bought the ground from the then owners Bristol Rugby Club.

GETTING THERE

By road...

The Memorial Stadium is located on Filton Avenue, just off the Gloucester Road (A38) and is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bristol.  Memorial Stadium is well sign posted with brown and white signs from the main motorway junctions on the M32 (from M4) and M5 (junction 18). 

By rail…

The nearest railway station is Filton Abbey Wood, which as Peter Moody informs me; 'is approximately 1.5 miles or 20-25 minutes walk away from the Memorial Stadium'. 

More likely though you will end up at Bristol Parkway which is about two miles away from the ground and is really too far to walk from, so you are probably best to jump in a taxi (cost about £10) or buses 73/73A/73B run from the railway station past the Memorial Stadium.

CAR PARKING

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.

ENTERTAINMENT & REFRESHMENTS

The pubs...

There is a bar behind the clubhouse terrace at the ground that allows in away supporters. 

Not far from the Memorial Stadium on Gloucester Road is the Wellington. This pub which is owned by Bath Ales, serves food too and normally has a mix of home and away fans on matchdays. 

The King Street Brew House is a city centre pub & microbrewery located on the cobbled street corner of King Street and Welsh Back waterside. It is handily placed if you are arriving at Bristol Temple Meads railway station or going into the city centre before or after the game. The bar has up to 18 different beers on tap, some of which are produced on site & serves food from lunch time until late. In addition, the pub is family friendly, shows Sky/BT sports & has lots of space inside and out.  

Inside the ground...

Refreshments are available inside the ground.
