The Memorial Stadium

Away Fans' Guide | Bristol Rovers

Sync Argyle fixtures to your phone

Argyle make the relatively short trip to Bristol Rovers this weekend looking to extend a remarkable run of form which has sent them clear at the top of the Sky Bet League One table.

The Greens have won nine of their last 10 league fixtures, with only the final kick of the game against Portsmouth at Fratton Park denying Steven Schumacher's side 10 consecutive league victories.

In that time, Argyle have seen off both of their closest challengers at the top of the table - Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday.

It is little wonder, then, that tickets in the away end at Rovers were snapped up double-quick for what is traditionally a hotly-contested Westcountry clash.

The Gas themselves have shown an improvement in form lately, and they come into the fixture on the back of three consecutive league victories, including an impressive 4-1 away win at Cheltenham Town last time out.

Away fans' guide to the Memorial Stadium

Getting there


Address: Bristol Rovers Football Club, The Memorial Stadium, Filton Avenue, Bristol, BS7 0BF

The Memorial Stadium is located on Filton Avenue, just off the Gloucester Road (A38) and is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Bristol.

The Memorial Stadium is well sign posted with brown and white signs from the main motorway junctions on the M32 (from M4) and M5 (junction 18)

By car from the North, East and West

Whether you're coming from the East or the West, exit the M4 at junction 19 and join the M32. Travel along the M32 for 3.1 miles until you reach junction 2. Here, exit the motorway and take the third exit signposted Horfield and Southmead and follow the road through a division and a roundabout both of which have clear signs reading "The Memorial Stadium".

Once through this area you will join Muller Road and you should continue to drive along this road for 1.4 miles until you come to signal-controlled crossroads. Signposted right is Horfield Health Centre and Library. At this junction, turn left into Filton Avenue where the ground is located almost immediately on the left.

By car from the South

Exit the M5 at junction 16, which is signposted A38 Thornbury and Filton. At the roundabout follow the right turn signposted A38 Filton and join the A38. Travel along the A38 (Gloucester Road) for 4.3 miles as you enter the outer suburbs of Bristol. On your trip you'll pass Filton Airport on your right, the Royal Mail sorting office and the Royal George and Wellington pub. At a set of traffic lights take a non-signposted left turn into Filton Avenue to find the Memorial Stadium on your right.

Petrol Stations

There are many petrol stations along Gloucester Road, but if you’re looking for a stop right next to the ground there’s only really one - a garage that lies a few hundred yards down Gloucester Road. There are other ESSO, BP and TEXACO stations further down the road in either direction.

If you’re looking for a good value fill for a long journey home then you’re best bet is one of the major supermarkets. If you’re heading back down Muller Road, the Tesco store near the M32 junction offers petrol at a low price (24 hour) and for those heading back along Gloucester Road, the Walmart ASDA store in Patchway (24 hour) - clearly visible from the M5 - is probably the best value fuel stop you’ll find.


The closest bus stop to the Memorial Stadium is Filton Avenue. All local buses are now wheelchair accessible, and many have low floor access and all recognised assistance animals can travel for free. Detailed timetables and bus numbers can be found at the First Group website


Uber and Private Hire services operate in Bristol, and many are wheelchair accessible and can provide a suitable alternative to the bus or car. The recommended point of drop off is Filton Avenue as this is the only access point to the ground.


The nearest station is Filton Abbey Wood, approximately 1.5 miles from the ground. The most common local station is Bristol Parkway. The Memorial Stadium is in the north of Bristol at just over 2 miles from Bristol’s city centre and slightly further from Bristol Temple Meads, the main railway station.


The Memorial Stadium has limited parking. There may be street parking available in the roads close to the stadium, ensuring you adhere to local road signs. We would encourage all supporters travelling to the ground to use public transport wherever possible.

With very few exceptions, finding a space within a five to ten-minute walk is relatively easy - parking on Muller Road is a popular choice as is Gloucester Road although this is often more difficult.

If Muller Road and Gloucester Road are busy then there are many other roads across the other side of Gloucester Road - travel past the Wellington pub along Kellaway Avenue and you’ll find another area of roads often used for match day parking. Although there is plenty of on-street parking available, please be reminded that it is a predominately residential area so please ensure that private driveways are not obstructed

The Club provides a handful of parking spaces for our disabled visitors which can be booked via Clare McDonagh ( The available numbers vary between matches for both home and away fans depending on anticipated crowd sizes.
