Parking

Like most grounds it depends how far you want to walk. If 3/4 mile is ok then you could try parking over the river Itchen in Bitterne (few shops and residential so some parking on side roads) to the East of the ground. You can then get away on the main road (A334) (watch the speed cameras) to junction 7 of the M27 and then away or if you come off the M3 onto the A33 it becomes a road called the Avenue (very tree lined). When it becomes a dual carriageway with a big central reservation, wait until you can go no further (or you'll be in the centre) and park over on the right down a side road (residential). That's not far from the old Dell. Again about a 3/4 mile walk to the ground from the north west side.

Thanks, going to park closer to ground and leave on 85 mins when the points are secured ;-)

By 3/4 mile, you mean three-quarters, not thee or four miles I take it (I hope!)?

Never been to Southampton before so haven't a clue. I've heard the docks are the place to park, and it's about a mile from the ground?!

Yes that's three quarters ! As the police say, if you go down to the Dock area (and in fact even Ocean Village I suppose) you may get caught up in the Boat show traffic. Basically St Mary's is bordered on the one side by a railway line and the river on the other (behind various marine works) so the area around the ground gets congested. If you're not in a rush it's no problem but, if you are, it's best to park away from the immediate area and improve your fitness with a pre and post-match brisk walk ! If I was going I would park up off The Avenue around the Archers Road area near where the old ground was. It's a mix of student flats and residential properties and quite safe with pleny of roads to park on and easy to get away. But that's just my view.

Try SO15 2JJ

Then if walking, the Avenue becomes Dorset St and then round to the left of Jury's Inn it becomes St Andrews Road and then if you head towards the Northam Road (A3024), as it crosses the railway line you will see St Mary's on your right (and probably wonder why they didn't build a station next to the ground !). I'm sure you will see others walking to the ground anyway
