By car, from all directions:
Exit M6 at Junction 6 and take the A38(M) (Aston Expressway). Leave at 2nd exit then take first exit at roundabout along Dartmouth Middleway. After 1 miles turn left into St. Andrew's Street.

From Railway Station (Birmingham New Street):
By Taxi - expensive!

By Bus (see below).

By Foot - a fair walk, see map.

By Bus:
Bus Nos: 15, 17, 57, 58, 60, 96 and 97 run from the city centre (from New Street, High Street or Carr Lane) to St Andrews. NB. getting back by bus after the game can be a problem as the buses get caught up in the traffic. Though a long walk it may actually be quicker to walk back to the station after the game.

Trouble Factor:
Can be high (see fans comments below) for certain games, and you should always be on your guard and avoid displaying colours on the way to the ground.

Fans comments: Rob Raynham: "Sizeable bonehead element with organised trouble after the game last time we were there. Several dozens waiting behind the old Railway End for us to emerge - back to the early 70's! 15 - 20 minute walk from New Street station, 10 minutes from Digbeth Bus Stn. Very good real ale pub (the Anchor?) right behind Bus Station on Bradford Road. 'Blues' pub but friendly! Don't bother with pubs anywhere near the ground. Not particularly safe for away fans, DON'T wear colours IMHO "

Car Parking:
Dodgy to say the least. Early arrivers can try on street parking round the ground - don't display anything in the car that shows your aliegance to another club though. We recommend you search out a pay car park.

Pubs:
Pubs around the ground are a definite no-no for visiting fans. Stop before you get to the ground is our recommendation.

Food:
In the ground the food was dreadful - to say the least. Good bars and restaurants can be found in and around the City Centre and Birmingham has a justified reputation for some excellent Curry houses - seek them out.
