    Default local info for trip to Bristol City

    From a Bristol City follower,hope as many of you can make the journey on saturday 23rd November

    Firstly THERE WILL NO PAY ON THE DAY and this will NOT be changed

    Coming by road.

    Do NOT USE M4/M32 route and don't try to negotiate the roads and streets of Bristol
    YOU WILL GET LOST
    If you are coming by road use M4/M5 southbound to junction 18(Avonmouth) then follow signs A4 Bristol airport
    It looks the long way round but its quicker.
    Parking is normally in the streets around the area as long as you are there by 1pm please don't block drive ways or park on corners.
    If you are coming by train there is a local train service to PARSON STREET from Bristol Temple Meads


    Good train times as most trains from the North as well as the London direction arrive at quarter past the hour and quarter to the hour
    it takes you two thirds of the way to the ground and walk the rest of the way
    You will pass Sainsburys on the left with restaurant,Robins pub again on your left hand side
    When you approach the ground I suggest you walk past wickes using the pavement
    as the concourse area behind the big new stand gets very congested with bodies
    Any less you want to look at the John Atyeo statue

    Please make sure you get your train ticket showing PARSON STREET
    We are trying to promote PARSON STREET for football fans till Ashton gate halt comes on line.
    Split train tickets are available to Bristol(parson street)

    If there are at least three of you arriving by train get a taxi
    Make sure the taxi driver drops you in the Ashton Road end as it a very long walk round from the other end


    Casualty and Holby City were filmed in the City don't ask me about either of the programmes cos I think their both rubbish
    The young ones was also filmed in the BS7 area of the City(actually its Bishopston)
    Finally the block of flats on the left behind the dolman stand side as you are in the away end is "the" block of flats in "fools and horses"
    Bring your camera and turn up early if you want to take any photo's
    Pubs possibly best one are in the cumberland road basin area novia scotia pump house and the cottage.
    Buy your match day programme before you enter the away end.

    Pubs: best ones are along the Cumberland Roads area,suggest park your car and then walk to the ground.
    Please circulate to any other football forums and footy fans you may deem fit

    Radio commentary should be on BBC radio Bristol on DAB

    We now have two big screens at the Gate,
    so if you have bad eyesight sit on the far left hand side as you look at the pitch.
    The match is shown while the game is in play and some replays but no controversial incidents.

    If you need any further info,don't be afraid to ask.
