Away days: Norwich City

7th March 2019

If you are heading to Carrow Road for Friday night's Championship clash between the Swans and Norwich City (7.45pm), we have put together a handy travel guide to help improve your experience.

Norwich City v Swansea City

Date: Friday, March 8

Address: Carrow Road, Norwich, NR1 1JE

Distance from the Liberty: 313.4 miles


Away fans are housed on one side of the South Stand, where the normal allocation is around 2,500. You can enjoy some fine views of the city if you are right at the very back, including that of Norwich Cathedral.

Food available includes a range of pies, sausage rolls and hot dogs.


Holding around 2,000 vehicles and costing £8, Norfolk County Hall is one the best car parks for away fans. However, it is advised that you arrive early or it could mean a lengthy wait after the game.


From Swansea, the journey to Norwich takes around six hours on average and includes at least two changes. Thereon, it will take you about 10 minutes to walk to Carrow Road.

Trains leave at 9.55am, 10.29am, 11.29am, 11.55am and 12.29pm but there are no return journeys, so an overnight stay will be required.
