Directions:

From the South - M11 to Junction 14, then turn east along the A14 dual carriageway:

From the North - A14 from Huntingdon, then turn east along the A14 dual carriage way:

Then exit the A14 at the fourth junction (situated east of Cambridge), up the slip road to the roundabout (signposted Stow-Cum-Quy). Turn right onto the A1303, and return westwards towards Cambridge. Go straight over the first roundabout, passing Marshall Airport to the left. Go straight over two sets of traffic lights to a roundabout. The Ground's floodlights can be seen from here and McDonald's is on the right.

Turn left onto the ring road. Turn right at the first roundabout (a large Sainsbury's is on the left here), and go along Coldham's Lane. After half a mile, immediately after the traffic lights turn right into Coldham's Road before the railway bridge.

Parking:

There is no on-site car parking available at the Abbey Stadium, however there is side-street parking available around the ground.

The following streets all have free parking available and are within walking distance of the Abbey Stadium:

Ditton WalkColdham's LaneWhitehall Road

The Club would advise supporters to arrive early, as the later you try and park the further you will have to walk to the ground.

If you require disabled parking please call the Club on 01223 566 500.

Train:

Cambridge Station

Cambridge Rail station is located in the city centre and is a 25-30 minute walk from the ground. To get to the ground walk away from the station along Station Road and take the first right, (Tenison Road). Take the first right again, (Devonshire Road), follow this round to the left, up to the next junction. Turn right - again - onto Mill Road. Walk over the railway bridge, then take the third left, (Sedgewick Street). Follow this road, pass a set of traffic calming barriers, and shops (at this point you are in Cromwell Road) to a T-junction, (Coldham's Lane). Ahead of you should be a large field (Coldham's Common). Go into this field and follow a path under the railway bridge to the away turnstiles.

There are regular services to and from Cambridge Railway Station, where taxis are available or the Citibus C3 service runs from the station every ten minutes during the day and at longer intervals in the evenings.

Cambridge North

There is also now a new station in the city, Cambridge North, nearby in Chesterton. Not every train stops there however and it is approximately a 30 minute walk to the ground.

Coming out of Cambridge North Station, turn to the left and walk through the Bike Parking area and onto the Cycle/Footpath running parallel with the train tracks. This leads to a Cul-de-Sac called Moss Bank. On exiting Moss Bank, turn right on Fen Road. Continue straight on Fen Road (and later Water Street) for about 1/2 a mile until you reach the Green Dragon Pub. At the pub, cross the river using the footbridge and then cross over Stourbridge Common to join Oyster Row and Garlic Row. At the end of Garlic Row you will join Newmarket Road - turn left, cross over the railway lines and you will see the stadium on your right.

Public transport:

A Citibus C3 bus stops within a few yards of the ground (Ditton Walk stop) on Newmarket road and runs from the Railway Station and through the city centre every ten minutes during the day, and at longer intervals in the evenings. Check the Stagecoach website for more details and a Citi 3 timetable.

Facilities:

There are Tea Bars located at the rear of both the South Stand and South Habbin Stand serving a mix of hot food, hot and cold drinks and snacks.

Meanwhile, there is also an additional catering unit to the left of the South Stand which away supporters will find immediately to their right once entering the turnstiles.

Food and drink is reasonably priced with Cambridge United advising away supporters that roughly £5 to £6 would cover the cost of an item of hot food and a drink.
