Getting to Adams Park
Leave the M40 at Junction 4 and follow the signs towards Aylesbury on the A4010 (John Hall Way). Cross over three small roundabouts into New Road continuing down the hill to two mini roundabouts at the bottom. Turn sharp left at the first into Lane End Road and continue to the next mini roundabout at which turn right into Hillbottom Road. Adams Park is situated at the very end of the road.
There is a car park at the ground with a charge of £5 but leaving after the game can take a long time. Parking is also available at several of the units on the industrial estate. Otherwise there is street parking in the vicinity of the ground, but be warned traffic wardens patrol the area regularly.
Blue Badge holders should contact Wycombe ticket office [01494 441118] to see if any of the limited complimentary spaces are available to pre-book, otherwise a standard £5 charge applies.
Traffic is often heavy around Adams Park so you would be well advised to allow plenty of time to get there.
Trains run regularly from London Marylebone station to High Wycombe. The journey from Portsmouth to High Wycombe will take around three and a half hours. Allow plenty of time for your journey because on Saturday 4 th February, due to engineering works, there are rail replacement buses between Portsmouth stations and Havant.
High Wycombe station is approximately two and a half miles from the ground, so either grab a taxi, or Arriva operate a special football bus service from the station leaving at 13.05 and 14.05 via Eden Bus Station [13.15 and 14.15] and Handy Cross Park & Ride [13.25 and 14.25] arriving at Adams Park at 13.35 and 14.35. The return journey leaves Adams Park at 17.10.
Where to eat and drink
Because of its location there is a shortage of pubs near the ground but there is an away fans marquee at the ground which sells bottled and canned drinks, it closes at 14.30.
The White Horse pub, 95 High Wycombe Road (A40) HP11 2LR welcomes away fans, although not really a family pub.
The Hour Glass pub 144 Chapel Lane, High Wycombe, HP12 4BY is nearest to the ground, about half a mile away. It serves real ale, but can get very full and doesn’t always admit away fans.
The Half Moon, 103 Dashwood Avenue, HP12 3DZ is a comfortable, friendly pub that does a couple of real ales, serves food and has big screens showing sports. If you do drive to this pub it is best to park in Ogilvie Road from where it is just over a mile to walk to the ground.
