Away days | Bristol City

18th September 2019

If you are heading to Ashton Gate to cheer on Swansea City, here is a handy travel guide to make your journey that much easier.

Bristol City v Swansea City

Date: Saturday, September 21 (3pm)

Address: Ashton Gate, Ashton Road, Bristol, BS3 2EJ

Distance from the Liberty: 81.7 miles


Some 2,300 Swans fans will be housed at one end of the ground, behind the goals. The first kiosk inside the turnstiles gets really busy.

Go up the stairs and through the double doors, there are more outlets for pies and pasties along with Fosters, Butcombe bitter, Guinness and Thatchers.


Supporters are advised that parking at the ground is for permit holders only. Hardly any street parking is available nearby.


The nearest station is Parson Street, 1.2 miles from Ashton Gate. From two hours before kick-off, trains are every 30 minutes from Bristol Temple Meads; it’s a four-minute journey to Parson Street.

Bristol Temple Meads station is 2.5 miles away from the stadium; a taxi is about £8.

A bus service (£2 return) runs from near Temple Meads to Ashton Gate. It leaves one hour before kick-off and buses return after the final whistle.

Pick up is across the main road at the bottom of the station approach road outside the exit to Temple Meads, and returns from Winterstoke Road (the road running past the ground with KFC/Wickes along it). Please note, there are only three buses and they fill up quickly.

Services for the two-hour train journey to Parson Street leave Swansea at 09:29am, 10:29am, 11:29am and 12:00pm. Coming back, trains leave at 5:37pm, 6:36pm, 7:35pm and 9:16pm, getting in at 7:43pm, 8:42pm, 9:43pm and 00:03am respectively.
