Parking

The Memorial Stadium has limited parking. There may be street parking available in the roads close to the stadium, ensuring you adhere to local road signs.

We would encourage all supporters travelling to the ground to use public transport wherever possible.

The Club has 30 disabled bays which are currently fully booked by home season ticket holders. If you wish to be added to the waiting list please contact the Club. The Club provides a handful of parking spaces for our disabled visitors which can be booked via Clare McDonagh (ticketing@bristolrovers.co.uk)

The available numbers vary between matches for both home and away fans depending on anticipated crowd sizes.

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.

At the Stadium

Pubs for Away Fans

The following information is from the Football Ground Guide.

There is a bar behind the clubhouse terrace at the ground that allows in away supporters. Not far from the Memorial Stadium on Gloucester Road is the Wellington. This pub which is owned by Bath Ales, serves food too and normally has a mix of home and away fans on matchdays. Also on Gloucester Road is a recently opened micropub called the Drapers Arms. Rhys Gwynllyw a visiting Wrexham supporter recommends the Annexe Inn on Seymour Road. Located half mile away from the stadium, this pub along with the Drapers Arms are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. It is close to the County Cricket Ground, going further along the A38 towards Bristol. After passing an Indian Restaurant called Guru, turn left into Nevil Road and then right at the Sportsman Pub into Seymour Road. Other pubs near to the stadium such as the Queen Vic, the Anchor and the Royal Oak, are best avoided by visiting supporters. Please note that alcohol is not made available to away fans inside the stadium.

The Weather

At the time of writing it will be wet on Tuesday with the temerature around 13degrees at kick-off, it will be wet though, so take a coat!

Total Distance

The total distance from Exeter is 81.6 miles and will take around 1 hour and 30 minutes to get there depending on traffic.
