To get to Stevenage from Exeter take the M5 north all the way up to the M4 East where you need to travel towards London. You then need to join the M25 clockwise and follow the motorway for a period of time before taking the exit for the A405. Continue along this road before you come to a roundabout and take the third exit for the A414. Follow this road for a while before you meet the A1 which you need to follow before leaving for a main roundabout and the A602 which will take you to the stadium. Free match day parking for 500 cars is available to fans at Fairlands Valley car park to the north of the ground. This is signposted from junction seven of the A1(M). Please then use the signposted underpass to cross the A602 to the stadium, rather than crossing the dual carriageway by foot.

The 09.55 service gets you to Stevenage for 13.27 but once you’ve arrived at London Paddington you need to take the underground to King’s Cross station to complete the journey.

According to footballgroundguide.com, There is a large club house bar at the ground, behind the south stand, which is popular with both home and away fans alike. Otherwise, there is not much in the way of pubs near to the ground. Still, if you like your real ale then it is worth taking the 15-minute walk to the 'Our Mutual Friend' pub in Broadwater Crescent. This pub, which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide offers seven beers on hand pump, plus real cider.
