Swansea City face League Two side Barnet in their first pre-season friendly on Wednesday night. Here are some key details for Swans fans who are travelling to the game.
Barnet v Swansea City
Wednesday, July 12 (7.45pm)
Address: The Hive, Camrose Avenue, Edgware, HA8 6AG
Telephone: 0208 381 3800
What’s it like? Away fans will be housed in the North Stand at one end. Away fans have their own bar behind the stand while the food on offer includes cheeseburgers, burgers, hot dogs and baguettes but no pies.
Pubs and grub: The away fans bar behind the North Stand is spacious and has a large screen showing Sky Sports. The bar is open throughout the game and for a short time after the final whistle.
The Hive Bar at the stadium is for home fans only. The nearest pub is Moranos (HA8 6RW), which is a short walk from Canons Park Underground Station (come out of the station, turn right and it is in the row of shops further down on the right). This Irish-themed wine bar has a number of large screens showing sport. It‘s then a 10 minute walk to the away end, cutting through the playing fields.
Quite close to Kingsbury Tube Station is a Wetherspoons pub, JJ Moons (HA9 6AA). If travelling on the Jubilee Line from Central London, then Kingsbury is only two stops before Canons Park. Turn left out of the station and the pub is down on the left.
Parking: There is a car park accommodating 500 spaces at the stadium, costing £5.
There could be delays after the game as there’s just one exit. Street parking is around but none on Camrose Avenue.
There are 150 car parking spaces at Canons Park Tube Station and a 10 minute walk to the Hive.
By tube and train: The nearest tube station is Canons Park on the Jubilee Line. As you come out of the station turn left and cross the road. You’ll come to metal railings where there’s an entrance to playing fields to walk through to the ground. This brings you out at the North (away) End.
Trains leave Swansea at 11.55am, 12.29pm, 1.28pm and 2.28pm for the three-hour ride to Paddington. The only train back to Swansea from Paddington is the 10.45pm getting in at 2.40am – you will need to take the Jubilee and Bakerloo lines via the Tube to meet the train on time.
