GETTING THERE

By road...

Leave the M40 at junction 4 and follow the signs to Aylesbury on the A4010 (John Hall Way). Cross over three small roundabouts into New Road continuing down the hill to two mini roundabouts at the bottom. Turn sharp left at the first into Lane End Road and continue to the next mini roundabout at which turn right into Hillbottom Road. Adams Park is situated at the very end of the road. 

By train...

High Wycombe is served by the Chiltern Railways line, connecting Birmingham to London Marylebone. The station is approximately 2.5 miles from the stadium, and you can either take the bus (see below) or travel via taxi. 

By bus...

You can travel to the game by bus thanks to the Arriva service, but please always check the website for updates via the Big Match Preview ahead of the game.

Arriva operate a matchday service at a standard fare of £3 single or £4 return, irrespective of where passengers join or leave the service. Children aged 12 and under are charged half price (£1.50 single or £2 return). 

PARKING
There is no parking for the general public in the lower tier - spaces in the upper tier are £5 per car. There is also a car park behind Origin Global (on the left before the Adams Park gates), priced at £5 a car, the proceeds of which are split between the club and the Rennie Grove charity. 

Spaces for pass holders in the club car park are guaranteed up until 2pm, after which time the lower tier becomes closed to vehicles due to high pedestrian traffic. Please note that the capacity of the upper car park may be reduced in adverse weather conditions. 

Blue badge holders are required to pre-book one of 15 complimentary parking spaces via the ticket office; otherwise the standard £5 charge applies. 

Street parking is also available in the vicinity of the ground, however, supporters are warned that traffic wardens patrol the area regularly. 

ENTERTAINMENT & REFRESHMENTS

The Pubs...

Away fans are welcome to make use of the Printkick Fan Zone, just inside the gate, and close to the entrance to the away stand (Lords Builders Merchants Stand). Here, there's hot food, a bar, music, and often entertainment for all the family from club sponsors or the Sports & Education Trust.

Generally when the away support is likely to exceed 1,000 supporters, the Fan Zone is made available exclusively to away fans, but when the figure is lower, it is a mixed area for fans of both clubs to mingle.

Elsewhere, the Caledonian Suite is an indoor lounge, though the Club ask for no away colours to be displayed.

Inside the ground...

Inside the stadium, each stand is serviced by a kiosk serving hot and cold food and drink, including burgers, hot dogs, pies and chips, plus tea, coffee and fizzy drinks, chocolate and sweets.

PYROTECHNICS
Wycombe Wanderers would like to remind fans of its zero-tolerance policy in relation to the use of pyrotechnics inside the stadium on matchdays. 

Any supporter found to be carrying or letting off a pyrotechnic inside Adams Park will receive an immediate long-term ban from the stadium. This applies to flares, smoke bombs and fireworks. 

The club will also offer its full cooperation and support to opposition clubs and the local police when dealing with such offences at away matches.

This policy is in line with guidelines issued by FIFA, UEFA, the FA and EFL which also state that details of anyone committing such an offence will be forwarded to the police and could lead to criminal proceedings. 

MATCHDAY PROGRAMME
The matchday programme ‘Parklife’ is on sale - priced at £3.50 - from a number of outlets around the ground.
