    Starting to do some research into how to get to Soton next Sat (as cant
    get back to Cheltenham by train thanks to Sky changing the
    times). Was thinking about using their Away Park and Ride scheme
    again but a little dismayed to see on the saints official website it
    only starts 2 hours before the game- was hoping to meet up with the
    lads from Wolvo in the centre for a few beers. Anybody got any
    suggestions for parking nearer the centre/ground.

    Use the direction on there, you can put in your postcode and it will give you directions from your drive to where-ever in southampton you want to go.

    Thanks Bilbrook, I do use Multimap for directions to games but really
    after the best place to park (as all the road parking round Soton's
    ground is residents only and the town centre parks are probably going
    to be full on a Sat afternoon).

    Went to Uni there, and there are loads of pay and display's around.


    Its a problem parking in the streets, as its permit holder parking, unless your prepared to walk for 30mins.

    Currently staying at my parents house in dorset for the weekend and travelling to the game by train on my own.


    Wouldn't mind some information about how easy it easy to get the free bus from the station to the ground (and back again), and where people are intending to go for a drink. Wouldn't mind meeting up with a few that are going for a few cheeky pre match drinks.


    I'll get a round , honest!! [​IMG]).

    It's easily walkable from the centre/train station to the ground -10-15 mins.

    Wolfan, Tks for the link- lost that bookmark in the closed season-
    confirmed my fears re Park&Ride. May look into Woolston or take the
    gamble that City Centre wont be grid locked for getting out after 7pm
    (and can get a space in 1st place).

    Its a good site that, well worth reading before an away trip. From what
    I remember of Southampton a few years ago, theres a huge shopping
    centre, with a massive car park (cant remember what its called, but its
    near the docks), it'll probably cost a bit mind.



    This
    is the Southampton bus website, so perhaps that might show a good place
    to park and get a bus in.

    oohbully last time we went down we parked on some industrial estate near the waters edge about a 10 minute walk from the ground. Loads of home fans seemed to park here and we stumbled across it by accident. Pretty easy to get away too which is always a bonus.

    Not according to the official website, but if they have and you need
    one I've got one (not one out of the four people I asked could go, but
    by then I'd bought 2 tix anyway incase they did sell out! [​IMG])
