CAR: Abbey Stadium is situated in Lady Lane, Blunsdon, just off the main A419 Swindon to Cirencester road. From the north, leave M5 at junction 11A and take A417 to Cirencester, then A419 to Swindon and M4. Go past signs for Cricklade then follow Stadium signs.
From south turn off M4 at junction 15 and follow A419 dual carriageway for approximately eight miles. From M1 take A43 to Oxford then the by-pass, A34 south Newbury and Swindon. Follow signs for A420 Swindon (approximately 30 miles). After Sainsbury’s roundabout at Stratton follow signs for A419 north, Blunsdon and Cirencester. After approximately four miles the Stadium is signposted.
There is car parking at the stadium but space is limited so an early arrival is recommended.
TRAIN: The nearest station is Swindon, which is on the mainline from London Paddington to Bristol, Newport and Cardiff. But trains from Gloucester and Cheltenham also stop at Swindon.
BUS: Services terminate just after 6pm so this is no longer a realistic option.
TAXI: From the town centre or rail station a single fare is likely to be £10-£12.
