From all main roads around Oxford: Follow the brown football signs towards the Kassam Football Stadium.
From the M4:
Leave the M4 at Junction 13 and join the northbound carriageway of the A34. Follow the A34 towards Oxford. Exit A34 onto A4142 and follow the brown football signs towards the Kassam Football Stadium.
From the M40 - Northbound
Leave the M40 at Junction 7. At the end of the slip road, turn left onto the A329 signposted Little Milton and Stadhampton and you will see signs for the B480. Continue forward on the B480 (through Stadhampton and Chiselhampton) for approx 8 miles until you reach a main roundabout. Take the first exit signposted Reading & the Bowlplex and the Kassam Stadium is approx 1 mile on the right hand side.
From the M40 – Southbound
Leave the M40 at junction 8a. Follow A40 to the first roundabout (McDonalds Family Restaurant is on left hand side). Take first exit towards Cowley and Newbury A34 and follow the brown football signs which will take you to the stadium.
There are 1,600 car parking spaces at the stadium itself, which are free. However, the car parks tend to fill up fast, so try and arrive early if you can (at least 75 minutes before kick off). An additional 400 car parking spaces are now available at the Ozone cinema and bowling alley complex adjacent to the stadium, which are also free to use. John Attwood a visiting Gillingham supporter adds; 'when arriving at the stadium, ignore the first stadium car park entrance that you come to and go up to the second entrance as the first will have you parking at the "open" end. There is a roundabout by the second entrance, which will take you back to the first entrance if the other half is full. I was also heavily delayed in trying to leave the car park after the game as there was only two exits available'. If you do end up arriving late at the stadium and find that the stadium car parks are full, then don't get tempted to park on a grass verge as you may well end up with a parking ticket for your trouble.
Oxford railway station is over four miles from the ground and it is really not advisable to try to walk it.
You can get the Oxford Bus Company Service, Number 5, from Oxford Railway Station (use bus stop R2) via the city centre to Knights Road in Blackbird Leys, which is a short walk away from the ground. On Saturday afternoons the bus runs every five minutes and on midweek evenings every 8-10 minutes. Journey time to the stadium is around 30 minutes. For more information visit the Oxford Bus Company website.
Alternatively a taxi will cost you in the region of £20, from the station to the stadium.
