Getting there by car:

Join the Sheffield Parkway from Derek Dooley Way. Take the A57 ramp to Worksop/Mosboro'. Continue onto A57. Take the A1 to The SOUTH. Continue on A1(M) following signs for London. At junction 15, take the B1043 exit to Sawtry. Join the A14 ramp to Huntingdon/Cambridge. Take the A14 exit toward Cambridge/A1307/A10/Ely/Felixstowe/Harwich/Newmarket.

Car parking:

There is no parking available for away fans at the ground. There is some parking to be had on the streets surrounding the stadium.

By rail:

There are regular trains running from Sheffield Railway station to Cambridge railway station. All require at least one to two changes. The Abbey Stadium is over two miles away from Cambridge railway station, so supporters can get a taxi (about £9) or walk which should only take 30 minutes at a good pace.


Next to the Stadium is the Supporters Club bar which is usually open to both sets of fans, however it's advised to check the official site before turning up. The only pub close to the ground is The Wrestelers Pub on Newmarket Road. There are a number of watering holes in the town centre.
