What's it like? Swans fans will sit in the side of the main stand along the pitch. There is a range of food available while alcohol is not sold to away fans.
Pubs and grub - The Cherry Tree on Oundle Road (PE2 9PB) is popular with away fans. It's small but a friendly pub and serves food on matchdays. It costs £2.50 to use the car park. The Palmerston Arms (PE2 9PA) is an away-fan friendly pub and has around 10 real ales on offer, but they don't sell regular lagers etc. This pub is about 100 yards further along Oundle Road on the opposite side. The pub also doesn't serve food, but doesn't object to customers bringing in their own. Between the Cherry Tree and Palmerston Arms is the Harbour City fish and chip shop. The Peacock (PE2 8AR) is over the River Nene, down London Road past the ground on the left and the pub is on the right at the traffic lights next to a KFC drive-through.
Near to the ground is Charters (PE1 1FP) - a former Dutch barge moored on the River Nene. It's a few minutes' walk from London Road on the left-hand side of the bridge going towards the town centre. Upstairs is an Asian restaurant, and downstairs there's a bar. The ground is a 10-minute walk from the town centre where there are plenty of pubs to be found.
If coming by train, the Brewery Tap is near to the station on Westgate. The home of Oakham Ales, this big bar serves beer, Thai food and you can see into the brewery itself.
Parking - There's a council pay & display car park just off London Road (on your left as you pass the ground going towards the town centre). Street parking are on side streets up Oundle Road, going away from London Road. Check for any parking restriction signs on lamp posts, as the streets nearest the ground are residents-only parking.
By train - The station is a mile from the ground and a 20-minute walk. Turn right out of station and follow the main road, passing Asda on the right. At the traffic lights, turn right, go over the bridge and you can see the floodlights of London Road, over on your left.
Please note, Swans fans can pay admission at the gate at Peterborough.
