Bournemouth - Saturday 18th October

Route to Bournemouth
With thanks to the Jon Ladd book "Guide To Football Grounds"

By Car
(from North)
M1 to M25. M25 to Junc 12 then onto M3, M3 to M27, and then A31. From the A31 join the A338 to Bournemouth. Turn left off the A338 at the Kings Park exit - signposted "Football Traffic". Take the first left off the mini roundabout into Littledown Ave (do not take the exit signposted Kings Park and Parking), then turn immediately right into Thistlebarrow Road. The ground entrance is at the bend of the road.

There is street parking around the area, and several large car parks round the ground, try and avoid the South Stand Car Park, it makes Sixfields seem quick!

By Train

Bournemouth Station is the nearest, but its quite a hike to the ground which is situated in Boscombe

Away Enclosure
Beach End Terrace. Open ended terrace which holds approx 2600. There are about 150 seats available for away supporters in Block A. If I remember correctly the fence has been taken down.


If you can blag your way into the Social Club, then go for it. It is a regular in the Good Beer Guide. There are other pubs in the vicinity and they seem to be OK towards away fans.
