Very limited at the stadium but plenty of parking is available at the various DIY stores and Tesco on Newmarket Road.
The nearest pub to the ground is The Wrestlers. It’s very friendly but sometimes becomes home fans only before some games. Normally has a fantastic real ale selection and does excellent Thai food. The supporters club at the ground is normally members only pre match although if you can talk your way in it is tardis like in its size and very comfortable. The Green Dragon about a 15 minute walk away (cross Stourbridge Common and over the river via the footbridge) is normally a good bet for traditional pub food. For those coming by train the walking route above will take you through a rabbit warren of streets in the Romsey area of town. This is littered with some lovely real ale boozers which are worth a look. In particular The Salisbury Arms on Tennison Road, The Devonshire Arms on Devonshire Road, The Kingston Arms on Kingston Road and The Cambridge Blue on Gwydir Street.
The Fort St George on midsummer Common claims to be the oldest pub in town. Those who want something very English may want to take afternoon tea at The Orchard tea rooms just south of town in Granchester. The Bacon Rolls served at the Abbey have for years been praised by all and sundry.
Supporters Club (which is run separately from the Football Club) is open to visiting fans and serves hot and cold food and reasonably priced drinks. Entry on the door £1.00.
If the weather is good then who can resist taking a punt out on the river? Pick them up either from Magdeline Bridge (pronounce it as Maudeline and you might pass for a local) or The Mill Pond. The folks selling punt hire or punt tours will haggle, don’t accept the first price you are offered! Be aware, steering is a lot easier than it looks, building any speed up is a lot harder......
Many of the colleges in the town centre are open to the public and well worth looking round, in particular St John’s, Trinity and the world famous Kings. Less well known but equally beautiful are Queens and Claire. Some of them charge to get in. I am awarding this game a 10/10 OSF as my Auntie Judy and Uncle Malcolm Potts live in the nearby village of Cherry Hinton – that is possibly where I will be staying overnight (although I haven't been invited yet) with breakfast thrown in!
My thanks go to Graham Steed, or “Edd” as he is known, for his significant contribution to this guide. It's the easiest one I have ever done!
