On Saturday 18 th March Pompey visit Stevenage FC’s Lamex Stadium, Broadhall Way, Stevenage, Herts, SG2 8RH. The Lamex holds 6,920 and Blues supporters will be in the covered South Stand behind one goal.
How to get to the Lamex Stadium
Leave the A1(M) at Junction 7 and take the A602 towards Stevenage.
Go straight across the first roundabout and as you approach the next roundabout you will see the floodlights of the ground over on your right. If you go straight across the roundabout you will see the entrance to a large car park on your left.
The car park is free, however it only has one entrance /exit so this can lead to a bit of a bottle neck after the game. There is an underpass under the main road to the ground. Alternately there is some street parking to be found in the local area and several pay and display car parks in the town centre. Please note that parking in the nearby Roaring Meg Retail Park is for a maximum of 90 minutes, staying longer could lead to an expensive day out by paying a large fine.
At the time of writing it is not known how engineering works will be affecting trains from Portsmouth to London Waterloo, information can be found on www.nationalrail.co.uk. Trains run regularly to Stevenage from London Kings Cross and the journey takes around half an hour. The station is about a mile from the ground. There is a shuttle bus service, starting about 1pm, which runs from Stop N at the station direct to the ground and costs £1 return. Turn left out of the ticket barriers towards the town, take the first stairs on the left before the bridge over the dual carriageway and Stop N is at the bottom on the right. The return service usually continues for about an hour after the game.
If you decide to walk, turn left out of the ticket barriers towards the town. Take the stairs on the right before the bridge over a dual carriageway and head along the A602, Lytton Way. At the roundabout which has a police station on the right, go through the underpass to take the second exit into Six Hills Way towards Asda. At the next roundabout take the third exit (south) continuing along the A602 Monkswood Way, passing Asda on your right. After about ¾ mile (McDonalds, Burger King etc will be on your right) you will arrive at a roundabout and see the Lamex Stadium opposite you on the other side of the A602.
