Directions:

By Car

Leave the M5 at Junction 30 and follow signs for Exeter city centre along Sidmouth Road (A379) and then onto Rydon Lane (A3015). Take the Sidmouth Road turn off (B3183) towards the city centre. Keep going towards the town centre as the road becomes Heavitree Road. On nearing the city centre take the fourth exit at the large roundabout onto Western Way. At the next roundabout take the second exit onto Old Tiverton Road, then turn left into St James Road for the ground. There is street parking, but quite a way from the ground as there is a local residents scheme in operation.

By Train
The nearest railway station is St James Park, which is adjacent to the ground and only a short walk away, However this station is on a local line and most fans will arrive first into the mainline stations of Exeter St Davids or Exeter Central, from which you can then get a local train to St James Park.

Exeter Central is the closer of the two mainline stations is just under a mile away from the ground and should take around 20 minutes to walk. As you come out of the main station entrance, turn left and proceed along Queen Street. As the road bends around to the right, continue straight on along the pedestrianised area. At the end of this area (where it meets the High Street) turn left and then continue along Sidwell Street. After the roundabout turn left into St Jamesí Road for the ground.

General Information:

St James' Park stadium has a capacity of little over 9,000. The Flybe stand is all seated and is the newest of the four stands running alongside the pitch. The Grandstand is opposite and is a very strange build stretching only about half the length of the playing surface.

At either end are terraced stands with the Big Bank incorporating a big red and white heart into it's design and hosting home to the more vocal fans. Behind t
he opposite goal is the St James' Terrace and this is open to the elements.

 

Last Season: 10th, Football League Two
Average Attendance: 4,141

 

A Fans View:

Travel: The stupid SatNav got me lost which was irritating! Other than that, not a problem really once it sorted itself out! Very very few signposts though so would have been hard to find without the SatNav. Bit of a pain parking! Drove right past the ground and then got lost in little side streets trying to find my way back! Being so close to the city centre though, loads of city centre parking which although convenient, could be expensive.

Refreshments: Its about 5 minutes from the centre! I passed 4 pubs and countless chippies and shops just in the 5-10 minutes walk from where I parked the car so absolutely loads! They also had a couple of temporary outdoor bars and food outlets set up right outside the ground too.

Impressions: I was in the Big Bank Terrace, which despite being pretty basic, was impressive in itís size and atmosphere and acoustics. The away end looks even more basic! Just a couple of steps on a little uncovered terrace. Two seated stands on the sides, and its another decent little ground at that level, and had a good atmosphere.

Atmosphere: All the atmosphere in the ground seemed to come from the stand I was in. It was fairly constant as well, given the scoreline! It wasloud and supportive first half, and once QPR took control a bit, the Exeter fans seemed big enough to realise that the scoreline wasnít really a true reflection until the sending off, and kept the noise up until full time. QPR fans in comparison, I didnít expect to hear a lot from them, being at the other end and with their end being uncovered, but after they gave us a little chorus after the 2nd goal, it was clear they could make a noise if they triedÖthey just didnít!

Enjoy: One of the best locations of any grounds Ive been to, and seemed to be one of those grounds like Craven Cottage that just has the best brought out of it on a lovely summer evening. Worth the distance!
