Arriving On Foot OR BY BIKE

One way or another we all finish the journey to The Rec on foot. The stadium is set on the banks of The River Avon, which runs through the heart of the city.

It's an easy stroll from numerous city car parks, Park & Ride drop-off points, the train station and the town centre.

Alternatively, why not cycle down to the Rec? Free, secure parking spaces for bikes are offered just next to William Street Gate.
