AWAY DAYS: Aston Villa travel information

23rd October

Aston Villa v Swansea City

Saturday, October 24 (3pm kick-off)

Address: Villa Park, Trinity Road, Birmingham B6 6HE

Telephone: 0121 327 2299           


What's it like? Over 2,200 away fans will be seated in both tiers of the Doug Ellis Stand at Villa Park, which is situated on the side of the pitch.

There's a varied choice of food on sale while TVs on the concourse show past encounters between the two sides.

The trip to Villa is the second-closest away game for the Swans in the Premier League. Close rivals West Brom are a slightly shorter journey for Garry Monk's side.

Pubs and grub: There are a number of pubs around Villa Park but most of which are for members only.

'The Witton Arms' (B6 6SN) charges £3 for entry, with half of the pub specifically for away fans (with a separate entrance). The Witton Arms is approximately a two-minute walk from the away entrance on Witton Island.

Meanwhile, the 'Yew Tree' pub (B6 7AS) is roughly a 15-minute walk from the ground and costs £1 to enter.

The 'Ruskin Hall Social Club'(B6 5HP) - a ten-minute walk from Villa Park -  costs £1 to enter while a burger van and BBQ in the car park is present in the car park.

Parking: Parking around the ground is mostly street parking, but please do be wary of residents-only parking around the Witton roundabout area.

By train: Aston or Witton Stations are approximately a 15-minute trip from Birmingham New Street.

Witton is nearer the away end - just a five-minute walk away, while Aston Station is a ten-minute walk from the ground. On match days, extra trains are put on to supply the demand.

Trains leave Swansea at 07.28am, 07.58am, 08.28am, 09.28am and 10.28am for the three-hour and 40-minute journey to Witton. Coming back to Swansea, the 5.17pm, 6.17pm and 6.47pm take three hours and 33 minutes.
