The County Ground 





The County Ground is a traditional-looking stadium, that has an interesting mix of stands.

The main stand is a two-tiered structure, while the Arkells Stand opposite is a single-tiered stand which houses the away supporters.

The Don Rogers Stand, which has a cantilevered roof, admits supporters to an clear view of the play.


Swindon Town suggest parking in the St Joseph’s School on matchday, which is a short, five-minute walk from the ground, and charges £5 to park.

Alternatively, there is parking available at the cricket club on County Road, which also costs £5.

The Merlin Pub on Drove Road costs £2, but is a fair walk from the ground.


To drink: 

Alcohol is available within the ground for away supporters in the Arkells Stand.

Away fans will be welcomed to their own bar, Bar 71, which is located by the away turnstiles.

It is relatively small and tends to fill up quickly, so the Cricket Club is the next closest option. 

The Merlin pub is highly recommended amongst away fans, and is only 10 minutes away from the ground. 

Swindon town centre is a 15-minute walk away where there are plenty of pubs to be found.

To eat:

The Jewel In The Crown is highly-rated and serves Indian and Asian delicacies - only 0.6 miles from the ground.

The aforementioned Merlin Pub also serves food, as well as Bandido Burritos. The Mexican fast-food restaurant is much-loved in Swindon and is less than a mile from the ground.

Quicker and easier options such as Burger King and local fish and chip shops can be found close to the ground.


By car:

Leave the M4 at Junction 15, and take the Commonhead Roundabout.

Take left onto the A4259 Marlborough Road, and take the second exit at the roundabout onto Queens Drive.

At the next set of roundabouts, take the third exit onto County Road, and after taking the first right, you will see Swindon’s stadium.

By train:

From the front of the station, turn left onto Station Road.

Head right onto Corporation Street and at the traffic lights turn left onto Manchester Road.

After walking to the end of the road, turn right onto County Road, and the ground is on the second left.


The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited.

Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time. Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

The club outlined its stance on pyrotechnics following an incident during this season's trip to Mansfield Town, in a statement. This can be read HERE

Supporters are also reminded to remain courteous when inside the stadium, with regards to foul and abusive language. If you do hear anything offensive while inside the stadium, please report it to your nearest steward.


The sun should still be out in Swindon as kick-off looms, so City fans should expect a sunny evening and moderate breeze in Wiltshire.
