Getting to Kingsholm

As Kingsholm Stadium is situated in the middle of a residential area, we have an obligation to be good neighbours.

Please take a few minutes to read the information posted below to make your visit to Kingsholm as pleasant and easy as possible and to ensure that local residents are inconvenienced as little as possible on match days.

This travel page has been developed to ensure that all visitors can get to and from the stadium and the park and ride areas as quickly and easily as possible. For match days, the times have been based on a standard 3pm kick-off but please follow the links for further information to visit the stadium at other times.
