The Memorial Stadium is located on Filton Avenue, just off the Gloucester Road (A38) and is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bristol. Memorial Stadium is well sign posted with brown and white signs from the main motorway junctions on the M32 (from M4) and M5 (junction 18).
The postcode for the stadium is: BS7 0BF
From the city centre a number of buses run up Gloucester Road and along Filton Avenue directly past the Memorial Stadium. Detailed timetables and bus numbers can be found at the First Group website. Trains also run from the city's main station, Bristol Temple Meads, to Montpelier (less than two miles from the stadium) and to Bristol Parkway (a similar distance).
Timetables for trains can be found at the First Great Western website. A taxi to the Memorial Stadium from the city centre is likely to cost around £6, although with a standing charge of not much less than £3 wherever you cab from, it's likely to make little difference if you catch a taxi if this is your preferred method of transport.
The stadium car park is only accessible to permit holders, where attendants will direct car parking. Spaces are not available on a match-by-match basis.
With very few exceptions, finding a space within a five to ten-minute walk is relatively easy - parking on Muller Road is a popular choice as is Gloucester Road although this is often more difficult. If Muller Road and Gloucester Road are busy then there are many other roads across the other side of Gloucester Road - travel past the Wellington pub along Kellaway Avenue and you'll find another area of roads often used for match day parking.
Although there is plenty of on-street parking available, please be reminded that it is a predominately residential area so please ensure that private driveways are not obstructed.
