|Gloucester Rugby Club operates one secure car parking facility at a nearby school.|
Kings School is between the rugby club and the City Centre. Turn right at the Tewkesbury Road Roundabout (see map above) and proceed straight over the next roundabout, past Tesco's and under the footbridge. Take the next turning left, passed the VW garage and take the second turning right (signposted), immediately after the public crossing into King's School.
Also, opposite Kingsholm Primary School (which is directly opposite the main club car park and is accessed by taking the turning off Kingsholm Road next to the Post Office) is the YMCA car park which is also available to supporters on match days and is only a five minute walk from the ground.
All official facilities are manned during match hours and cost only £3. Cars are left at owners own risk
Gloucester RFC Park and Ride
ThePark and Ride facility runs every 20 minutes for two hours before and after each home Premiership fixture. Supporter's vehicles can be securely parked at the British Energy overspill car park at Barnwood which is signposted around the city with yellow AA road signs. Swanbrook Bus Company provide the shuttle service at £1 for adults and .50p for all concessions. More than 600 cars can use this facility into Kingsholm and it is easy for all supporters with excellent access from junction 11A of M5.
|The official club website has the latest image of the stand and also a link to a seating plan in the East Stand.|
The only change to the plan is that row B is now a complete row of seats, and row A is reserved entirely for wheelchairs and supporters with disabilities that require front row access.
The disabled toilet behind the Grandstand has recently had a RADAR lock put on it. This is a special lock that is now present in most public places nationwide and has a standard key to match that is available to all wheelchair users. There is always a spare key kept with the nearest steward at the ground for those who are without one.
