By car:
From North and West: follow the A14 towards Cambridge, Newmarket and Felixstowe. After the A14 and M11 divides, stay on the A14 to the third exit (s/p Cambridge B1047). Turn right at the T-Junction at the end of the traffic lights (s/p Fen Ditton, Cambridge Airport). Follow this road through the village of Fen Ditton to the next T-Junction at a set of traffic lights. Turn right here (s/p Cambridge). Straight on at the roundabout after 100 yards (s/p ring road) into Newmarket Road. The ground is on the left after approximately ½ mile.
From South: leave the M11 at junction 11 (s/p Cambridge A1309, Harston A10). Turn right at the roundabout (s/p Cambridge A1309). Straight on, at three sets of traffic lights, for 1.5 miles then right at the next set of lights (s/p ring road) into Long Road. Straight on at the next lights (s/p ring road) into Queen Edith’s Way. Follow ‘ring road’ signs at the next five roundabouts into Newmarket Road. The ground is on the left after approximately ½ mile.
From East: leave A14 at A1303 (s/p Cambridge A1303, Burwell B1102). Turn left at the roundabout (s/p Cambridge A1303). Continue straight on for 2.4 miles, over a roundabout, two sets of traffic lights then another roundabout. The ground is on the left after approximately ½ mile.

By rail:
The train station is only within walking distance for the most dedicated hiker as it’s a taxi ride or two busses from the ground.

By bus:
A number 3 bus stops within a few yards of the ground and runs from the town centre every ten minutes during the day.

Trouble Factor:
An intimidating atmosphere, but trouble is very rare unless you follow Peterborough.

Car Parking:
There is a small car park next to the ground, some parking, mainly for away fans, on Coldhams Common (weather permitting) or limited street parking close to the ground. It is suggested for Saturday games supporters use the park and ride facilities in Newmarket Road. To get there from the North and West, turn left instead of right at the final set of light. From the South, turn right instead of left at the final roundabout. You will pass the park and ride site if following the route from the East.

The supporters Club bar, behind the Newmarket Road terrace, welcomes (for a small entrance fee) away supporters and serves good, cheap beer and food. It does get full so you might prefer The Wrestlers on the opposite side of Newmarket Road.
