Exeter City travel to Cambridge United on Saturday looking to build on a recent good run of form that has seen them win three out of their last four matches.
Are you travelling or thinking of travelling to the match on Saturday? If so here is our guide to visiting the Cambs Glass Stadium.
CAMBS GLASS STADIUM (CB5 8LN)
The Cambs Glass Stadium has a capacity of 8,127 which includes 4,376 seats. Visiting supporters are allocated tickets in the South Stand or South Habbin Stand.

Take the M5, M42 and M6 to get onto the A14. Then exit the A14 onto the B1407. Follow that road past Cambridge Cemetery before turning right onto the A1303, and return westwards towards Cambridge. Go straight over the first roundabout, passing Marshall Airport to the left. Go straight over two sets of traffic lights to a roundabout. The ground's floodlights can be seen from here and McDonald's is on the right. Turn left onto the ring road. Turn right at the first roundabout (a large Sainsbury's is on the left here), and go along Coldham's Lane. After half a mile, immediately after the traffic lights turn right into Coldham's Road before the railway bridge.
There are two railway stations in Cambridge, the main Cambridge Railway Station is around two miles from the ground and the new Cambridge North Railway station is just less than two miles from the ground. To get to Cambridge Railway Station from Exeter St David’s it would take between four and four and half hours with two changes, at London Paddington and London Kings Cross. The journey to Cambridge North would be similar. A taxi can be taken to the ground from the station for around £9. To walk to the ground from the station should take around 30 minutes at a good pace. When you leave the station, take the first right hand turn into Tenison Avenue. After the traffic lights, turn right into St Barnabas Road and follow this road over the traffic lights into Gywdir Road. Go through the traffic barrier and take the first left into Norfolk Street. Then, take the first right turn beyond the newsagents into St Matthews Street, pass the church and take the 4th right into New Street. Follow until you reach Coldhams Lane. Go left here and take the first right onto Newmarket Road where you will find the stadium.
There is parking on the streets surrounding the stadium and off road car parking behind the stadium. To find this, go past the ground entrance for 400 yards and turn left at the traffic lights into Coldhams Lane. Continue for about 300 yards, crossing a small roundabout and over a railway bridge. The car park is on the left about 50 yards after the bridge. Please note that there can be traffic after the game has finished, therefore parking further away from the ground may make your exit easier.

There are tea bars located at the rear of both the South Stand and South Habbin Stand serving a mix of hot food including hot dogs, beef and chicken burgers, chips and pies, with hot and cold drinks, chocolate bars and bags of crisps also available. Meanwhile, there is also an additional catering unit to the left of the South Stand which away supporters will find immediately to their right once entering the turnstiles.
Food and drink is reasonably priced with Cambridge United advising away supporters that roughly £5 to £6 would cover the cost of an item of hot food and a drink.
There is a supporter’s club at the ground that normally allows entrance to away fans however it can get busy on match days and sometimes has to turn away fans because it is full. Along Newmarket Road going towards the city centre is the Wrestlers Pub, which also serves Thai food. A number of pubs in the area have recently closed down, meaning there isn’t much choice without travelling into the city centre.
The total distance between St James Park and the Cambs Glass Stadium is 258 miles which would take around four hours and 20 minutes
