By Car

From North & South (from the M1/M69): The M1 and M69 interchange at Junction 21 (M1), where you should exit and follow the signs for the City Centre via the A5460.

After 3 miles turn right onto Upperton Road. Go over the bridge and take the first right down Western Boulevard. The stadium will be on your right-hand side. There is often a lot of traffic approaching the ground so allow extra time travelling.

Parking
Best to use the Leicester Rugby Club car park or park a bit further out in the Upperton Road area or streets off the A5460.

Where to Eat?

There's a fish and chip shop opposite the bus stop in Aylesone Road/Walnut Street and another in Walnut Street. The food should be of decent standard inside the stadium.

Where to Drink?

The town centre is only a 15min walk away where there are plenty of pubs. The Spread Eagle in Charles Street, near the station, is a traditional pub and is the pool pub of Leicester.

The Donkey pub on Welford Road is normally OK for away fans but The Counting House on Freemens Common Road is not recommended. The Leicester Gateway on Gateway Street and The Old Bowling Green in Oxford Street a large 350 year old building making it the oldest one in Leicester. If coming by train, check out the The Hind across the road.

What's their ground like?

The Walkers Stadium was built for 35m and opened in August 2002. The stadium is single-tiered with blue seating and has all four corners filled in. One side has a row of executive boxes.

Palace fans will be housed in the north east corner with an allocation of just over 3,000. There is a little distance from the pitch but the view is still very good. Facilities inside are, as to be expected good, selling bottled beer and bitter and there are TV screens showing the action.

What do they sing?

Leicester! Leicester!; Always S**t On The Red Side Of The Trent; Leicestershire La La La

Songs to sing back

Leicester are going nowhere!

Who do they hate?

Derby, Nottingham Forest, Coventry
