Cambridge Travel Guide

Before you make the trip to Cambridge tomorrow, make sure you read our SLO Kristine Green’s useful travel guide…

What colour kit will the team be wearing?
We’re in pink kit for this fixture.

What’s the ticket information?
Away tickets are still available from the Abbey Stadium Ticket Office on Newmarket Road

How do I get to the ground?
The postcode for the ground is CB5 8LN.

If you’re travelling from the North, take the A14 from Huntingdon, then turn east along the A14 dual carriage way. From the South, take the M11 to Junction 14, then turn east along the A14 dual carriageway.

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.

What stand are we in?
We’re in the allocated all seater South Stand, behind one of the goals. This is a short walk through the common from Newmarket Road.

What time do turnstiles open?
Turnstiles will open at 1.30pm.

Where is the best place to park?
The Abbey Stadium does not have parking for fans so it’s either consider street parking (where restrictions allow) or the Newmarket Road Park and Ride. The return fare is £2.50 and drops you right outside the stadium. Fans are picked up from the layby on the opposite side of the road after the game.

You can opt to walk from the park and ride so that parking is free but this is a good 20 minutes away.

Is there any disabled parking?
If you require disabled parking please drop an email to

What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
Cambridge railway station is located in the city centre about a 25-30 minute walk away from the ground. Alternatively, taxis are available as well as the C3 bus, although with it being an evening game services will be between 10-30 minute intervals.

Recommended pubs for away fans?
There are plenty in the City Centre but that is some distance away. Nothing really around the stadium pub wise for away fans.

Food available in the area?
Newmarket Road has a host of chain restaurants such as McDonalds, Frankie and Bennies and Nando’s. There is a family fan zone outside the Club Shop which will be open but is weather dependant. This does not serve alcohol.

Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?
There are cashpoints at Tesco’s on Newmarket Road and the Spar shop on the junction of Newmarket Road and Barnwell Road.

What food and drink is available in the concourse at the stadium?
The Abbey Stadium serves a range of food and drink once inside including alcohol. The stadium is cashless so its card/contactless only.

Is a programme available?
Yes a printed programme will be available. This is a cash only purchase.

Is our drum allowed in the stadium? What is the process for supporters looking to bring flags into the stadium?
Due to the configuration of the South Stand flags can be hung over the front wall. Flags over 3m will need a fire safety certificate.

Drums require prior notice before the game by emailing
