The Abbey Stadium

Sync Argyle fixtures to your phone

Argyle head to Abbey Stadium in Cambridge looking to return to winning ways at the top of Sky Bet League One.

On Friday night, Port Vale ended Steven Schumacher's side's 15-game unbeaten run in the league, but neither Ipswich Town or Sheffield Wednesday could secure the wins to leapfrog the Greens at the top of the tree.

Despite the combination of cost of travel, Christmas fast approaching, and disrupted public transport services, another huge travelling contingent is expected in Cambridgeshire. Thank you for your support.

Cambridge Station

Cambridge rail station is located in the city centre and is a 25-30 minute walk from the ground. To get to the ground walk away from the station along Station Road and take the first right (Tenison Road). Take the first right again (Devonshire Road), follow this round to the left, up to the next junction. Turn right - again - onto Mill Road. Walk over the railway bridge, then take the third left, (Sedgewick Street). Follow this road, pass a set of traffic calming barriers, and shops (at this point you are in Cromwell Road) to a T-junction, (Coldham's Lane). Ahead of you should be a large field (Coldham's Common). Go into this field and follow a path under the railway bridge to the away turnstiles.

There are regular services to and from Cambridge Railway Station, where taxis are available or the Citibus C3 service runs from the station every ten minutes during the day and at longer intervals in the evenings.

Cambridge North
There is now a new station in the city, Cambridge North, nearby in Chesterton. Not every train stops there however and it is approximately a 15-20 minute walk to the ground.

Coming out of Cambridge North Station, turn to the left and walk through the Bike Parking area and onto the Cycle/Footpath running parallel with the train tracks. This leads to a Cul-de-Sac called Moss Bank. On exiting Moss Bank, turn right on Fen Road. Continue straight on Fen Road (and later Water Street) for about 1/2 a mile until you reach the Green Dragon Pub. At the pub, cross the river using the footbridge and then cross over Stourbridge Common to join Oyster Row and Garlic Row. At the end of Garlic Row you will join Newmarket Road - turn left, cross over the railway lines and you will see the stadium on your right.   


A Citibus C3 bus stops within a few yards of the ground (Ditton Walk stop) on Newmarket Road and runs from the railway station and through the city centre every ten minutes during the day, and at longer intervals in the evenings. Check the Stagecoach website for more details and a Citi 3 timetable.

There is no on-site car parking available at the Abbey Stadium and street parking around the stadium is restricted. It is therefore recommended Argyle supporters use the match day park and ride service instead.   

This is situated near the airport to the east of the city (CB5 8AA) and is a 10-to-15-minute walk to the ground along Newmarket Road.

Parking is free at the Park & Ride for supporters who are walking to the ground, and the cost of using the bus service is £2.50 for a return ticket.   

If travelling via the Park & Ride bus service, the ticket is valid for one passenger only. However, if travelling with children, the normal £3 Park & Ride ticket is also available to purchase, allowing children under the age of 16 to travel free with one fee-paying adult.

Ahead of the 3pm kick-off, football fans can catch any of the regular Park & Ride buses heading into the city centre, which will all be stopping at the ground. On the return leg, there will be a dedicated bus waiting in the layby outside the stadium at 4.45pm, to take fans back to the Park & Ride once the game is over.
