Where to drink.

We strongly recommend The Railway Vue on Station Road, Impington. The pub is around 4 miles from the Abbey stadium. The postcode is:  CB24 9NP. 

With a number of pubs in the local area having closed down, there is little choice for away fans in the way of a pre-match pint. Along Newmarket Road going to towards the city centre is the Wrestlers pub, which also offers Thai food.

Celebrity Watch

Comedian Rory McGrath hails from these there parts and can often be spotted cycling round town, Lord Jeffrey Archer, Terry Waite, Sid ‘Ricky’ Butcher Owen, Original 1960’s Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett, Ian ’Don’t tell him Pike’ Lavender and Professor Stephen Hawking. John Halsey the drummer from the Beatles TV spoof tribute band.

How to get there:

From the North:

Take the A1 and A14 to Cambridge, heading towards Newmarket. Turn off onto the B1047 sign posted for Cambridge Airport. At the top of the slip road turn right towards Fen Ditton. Go through Fen Ditton until you reach a T Junction, where at the traffic lights you turn right into Newmarket Road. Go straight across the roundabout (there is a McDonalds on one corner) and you will come to Abbey Stadium on your left hand side.

From the South:

Take the M11 to Junction 14 and then join the A14 towards Newmarket. Turn off onto the B1047 sign posted for Cambridge Airport. Then as North.

From the West:

Take the A428 to Cambridge, then join the A14, heading towards Newmarket. Turn off onto the B1047 sign posted for Cambridge Airport. Then as North.

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 Train.

Cambridge railway station is over two miles away from the stadium.

Park & Ride

The service will allow fans to park their vehicles at Newmarket Road Park and Ride for just £1 and use the bus service, with a return fare priced at £2.50. The service stop is at the match-day-only stop located outside the Abbey stadium.

Meanwhile, the return journey will collect passengers from the layby on the opposite side of the road. A bus will be waiting to board supporters at the final whistle, and will time its arrival in line with the end of the match.
