London Road Ground, London Road, Peterborough, PE2 8AL
BY ROAD (From the A47 West): Follow the signs to Peterborough on the A47. On the outskirts of the city you will see the Thomas Cook Headquarters on your right and it is here that you exit the A47 turning right onto the Nene Parkway. Take the second exit off The Nene Parkway onto Oundle Road turning left. Continue down Oundle Road, going straight over the Traffic Lights, carefully keeping your speed down to 30mph after the first bridge where there is a speed camera. On reaching near the end of Oundle Road you will see the London Road Ground in the distance to your right and a car park on your left just after Marshall's (Shell) garage, under the Railway bridge.
BY RAIL: Peterborough's train station is situated on the fringe of the city centre adjacent to the Queensgate Shopping Centre. On exiting the station on the approach road, you will see an underpass on your right, follow the signs to Bourges Boulevard. Eventually you will come to a normal sidewalk and continue walking down Bourges Boulevard toward the city centre, passing the Rivergate (ASDA) shopping centre on your right. In the city centre turn right at the traffic lights and continue down Bridge Street over the River Nene Bridge towards the London Road Ground which is located on your left over the bridge.
The Bridge, on London Road, is right near the ground and prides itself on being very away fans friendly. It's probably the best idea for a pre-match pint and also does food and is open from 11am until 3pm on match days. The Cherry Tree is the other side of the roundabout down Oundle Road and is a decent alternative. For non-pub food there's loads of take aways nearby.
There's parking at the ground, but unless you arrive early it'll be full.
The best bet is a large car park down Oundle Road, close to the ground.
