ENTERTAINMENT AND REFRESHMENTS

GETTING THERE

By car:

Leave the M5 at junction 10 and take the A4019 towards Cheltenham.

Keep straight on through the traffic lights until you come to large roundabout (there is a McDonalds on the left), at which you turn left.

Continue up this road going over a double mini-roundabout. Keep going for around 300 yards and then turn right onto Swindon Lane.

Go over the level crossing and straight over the next roundabout (signposted Prestbury), passing the racecourse on your left.

Turn right onto Albert Road (signposted Gloucestershire University) and, at the bottom at the roundabout, turn left onto Prestbury Road (the ground is signposted from here).

Further down Prestbury Road, turn right onto Whaddon Road. The Jonny-Rocks Stadium is further down, on the left.
