Away days: Derby County

29th November 2018

As the Swans get set to face Derby County on Saturday, we bring you a fan's guide to Pride Park to improve your matchday experience.

Derby County v Swans

Saturday, December 1 (3pm)

Address: Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8XL



Around 5,000 travelling supporters are located in one corner of the stadium – between the East and South Stands – where you can enjoy excellent facilities and views of the action. Food on offer at Pride Park includes a selection of pies, pasties, burgers and hot dogs.


Situated next to Pride Park are a couple of fair-sized car parks at the new Velodrome, where you can leave your vehicle for between £6 and £8.

Meanwhile, there is a designated away fans’ car park located at the Derby Conference Centre on the A6 London Road, which costs £5 per car – the same price for which you can leave your vehicle in the Meadows Industrial Estate on Chequers Road of the A52.

Staying on the A52, just off the roundabout going towards Pride Park, you can park at KFC or Burger King for £6. There is also free street parking available on Downing Road on the West Meadow Industrial Estate, which is about a 15-minute walk from the stadium.


From Swansea, the journey to Derby Railway Station takes just over four hours on average. You can walk to Pride Park from there within around 10 minutes.

Trains leave Swansea at 7.29am, 8.29am and 9.33am. The return journeys depart at 5.37pm, 6.37pm and 7.39pm, arriving at 9.43pm, 10.44pm and 12.03am respectively.
