Going to Peterborough ?

Peterborough United

Directions – PE2 8AL
The ground is located on the outskirts of the city centre, on the A15 London Road. The ground is fairly well signposted around the town centre.

Distance approx 41 miles 1 hour

From the North/West:
Drive into the town centre if you follow signs for Whittlesey (A605) this will lead you to the London Road. The new stand is quite visible from some distance away, so keep a lookout.

From the South:
Leave the A1 at the junction with the A15. Take the A15 towards Peterborough, you will eventually come to the ground on your right.

There is parking for cars in the Pleasure Fair Meadow council and Railworld car parks opposite the stadium (adjacent to the Town bridge on Oundle Road).

Pubs

The Cherry Tree pub on Oundle Rd is quite popular with away fans as is the Palmerston Arms which is situated around 100 yards further along Oundle Road on the opposite side.

Near to the ground is Charters, which is certainly worth a visit. This former Dutch barge, is moored on the River Nene, just a few minutes walk away from London Road, on the left hand side of the bridge, going towards the town centre. Upstairs is a Chinese restaurant, but downstairs there is a bar, which had on my last visit 12 real ales on tap.

Alternatively, the ground is in walking distance (10 minutes) of the town centre (which is very pleasant and complete with a cathedral) where there are plenty of good pubs to be found. If you are arriving by train then the Brewery Tap near to the station on Westgate, is worth a visit. The home of Oakham Ales, this spacious bar serves good beer, Thai food and allows you views into the brewery itself.

By Train

Peterborough station is around a mile away from the ground. Turn right out of station and follow the main road, passing an Asda store on your right. At the traffic lights near to the Rivergate Shopping Centre, turn right. Go over the bridge and you can see the floodlights of London Road, over on your left. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from the station to the ground

Trains take approx 1 hour, off peak return £22.80 but singles may be cheaper
