Directions & Parking
For a street map of the area & the ground [url=http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=624045&y=307875&z=0&sv=NR1+1JE&st=2&pc=NR1+1JE&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf]CLICK HERE


By Road
The ground is well signposted from the A11 and A47.  From the southern bypass (A47) take the A146 into the city. At the traffic lights turn right and follow the outer ring road: Left at the roundabout. Right at the next lights.  Follow the inner ring road round to the right, over the river and the ground is on your right. If in doubt follow signs for the the railway station until you get to the river (where the rail station is off to the left and ground on your right).

David Clarke informs me that 'The best car park for away fans is Norfolk County Hall, which is well sign posted on the left of the A146, as you follow signs towards the ground from the Southern Bypass. It is currently 3 and can hold about 2000 cars, and does usually fill up by 2pm for games where the away team bring loads of fans'. Martyn Swan adds; 'It's advisable to get to the car park before 1pm if you want a decent spot, otherwise you may get stuck in spaces at the back, and it can then take ages at the end of the game to exit'.

By Rail
The ground is walkable from Norwich train station. It should take you around 5-10mins to walk to the ground. From the station turn left and head for the Morrisons supermarket and you should see the ground behind that.

Away Fans
Away fans are housed on one side of the new South Stand, on one side of the ground. As you would expect from a new stand the facilities and view of the playing action are good. The normal allocation in this area is 2,500 fans although this can be increased further for cup games. If you are located at the very back of this stand then you can enjoy some fine views across the city, including Norwich Cathedral. The Club I found to be particularly friendly and relaxed. I certainly would rate it as one of the better away days, even though it seems an eternity to get there. As Delia Smith is on the board of Norwich City, the food available within the ground has been spruced up a fair bit and is very good. The Club even bake their own pies which not only include the usual array such as steak & kidney, chicken & mushroom, but also a number of 'matchday specials' (which change from game to game) such as beef in red wine gravy & cheese, mushroom and garlic. Please note that smoking is not allowed in the seated areas of the South Stand.

Pub Guide and extras
The number of good pubs situated in-between the train station and the ground are plentiful and friendly. The traditional haunt of away fans for many years was the Clarence Harbour, but this is now making way for a housing development. Most fans now seem to be heading instead for the 'Compleat Angler', which is by the river opposite the railway station (around 5-10 minutes walk from the ground)'. This pub seems to have now taken over the mantle of the 'away fans pub'.

Rob Emery informs me; 'Not far away from the ground and towards the City Centre a new leisure complex called the Riverside has opened. This has a number of drinking and eating establishments, including a Wetherspoons Lloyds No.1 outlet. Whilst Nicholas Mead suggests; 'the Coach and Horses on Thorpe Road brews its own beer and is around a 10 minute walk away from the ground'.

No away colours in the Riverside development bars (I.e. Lloyds etc) on match days from experience a few years ago

True although what was formally Lloyds is all that really remains of bars there. More restaurants now. Complete Angler is definatly the away fans pub and is on the door step of station and ground.

If you want a taste of the atmosphere when walking to the ground from the station I wouldnt turn left, but go straight and through the Riverside complex as this is the way most fans tend to walk to the ground - and where you would find most burger / programme vendors should that tickle your fancy.

Im living here now so am happy to field any questions when nearer the game.

And of course will be trying to blag tickets in the exchange :D

The wether spoons on the riverside complex was decent last year for Pre match singsong, so heading there for cheap grub and beer! Also the pub over the bridge too, but can't remember what it's called

Sounds like Compleat Angler it is then. Will it be open early, seeing as it's a 12:45 KO?

Complete Angler is not a home pub, it is still definitely an away fans only. I've just rung and spoke to them.

The lady said they will be opening early but she wasn't sure of the time as her manager wasn't there. Said from previous experience, its been either 10am or 11am.

I parked on a random road in Trowse for free, 20 minute walk was sound, and was straight off onto the A47 within 5 mins.

Swerved the County Hall as apparently it takes forever to get out of.
