What's Adams Park Like?
On one side of the ground is the impressive looking Frank Adams Stand, opened in 1996. This was named in memory of the man who originally donated to the club their previous ground at Loakes Park. It is a large two tiered stand, complete with a row of executive boxes and it dwarfs the rest of the stadium. The other three stands are smaller affairs, but are at least all covered. Only the Greene King IPA Stand at the home end remains as terracing. Opposite is the Dreams Stand, housing away supporters, a medium sized single tiered stand, with windshields to either side. Along the other side of the ground is the Main Stand. This single tiered stand has a raised seating area, meaning that fans access it by climbing a small set of stairs in front of it. There is a large video screen situated in one corner of the stadium, between the Dreams and Main Stands.

Steve Brown adds; 'The local council have stipulated that the capacity of Adams Park cannot rise above 10,300 due to access issues for emergency vehicles.' The ground is currently shared with Wasps Rugby Club (takes you to the Wasps Rugby Club website).

Future Developments

Having had a plan to build new 15.000 capacity stadium, on the current Sports Centre site (next to Junction 4 of the M40), turned down by the local authorities. Then the Club are considering their next move.

What Is It Like For Away Supporters?
Away fans are mostly located at one end of the ground in the Dreams Stand, where just over 2,000 supporters can be accommodated. For teams with a larger following then 350 seats are also made available in the Main Stand, increasing the total allocation to 2,350.

I personally had an enjoyable day at Wycombe. The club has a relaxed friendly feel about it. The ground is situated in a nice setting with a wooded hill over looking the ground (this normally has a small contingent of supporters watching the game for nothing) and with green fields surrounding the other sides. The standard football ground fayre of burgers, pies, pasties and hot dogs are available from the refreshments area.

David Abbott a visiting Northampton Town supporter informs me; 'I have to say what an excellent ground Adams Park is. Good signposting around the ground, good organisation, good atmosphere, excellent view from the away end  and friendly fans. It was a very pleasant visit and if all grounds and supporters were as welcoming and well-behaved as Wycombe the game would be all the better for it'.

Toby Hillier a visiting Brentford fan adds; 'The ground is absolutely splendid and set in wonderful surroundings. Although the atmosphere was pretty flat on my visit, the beating of a drum in the home end often rallied the home fans behind the team. The home fans are a friendly bunch and all of the staff that we encountered were also very friendly. You can park at the ground itself, however it is a nightmare trying to get out at the end of the game. It took us 50 minutes to do the 2 miles back to the motorway. My suggestion would be to park a mile or so away from the ground and walk. This should provide you with a quicker route away from the game'.

Mike Jordan a visiting Torquay United fan tells me; '
I found the home fans, stewards and staff of Wycombe to be friendly & welcoming towards away supporters. Also, for visitors interested in wildlife, at half time or during dull moments, look out for Red Kites drifting over the ground!'

Where To Drink?
At the stadium itself there is the Scores Bar and Vere Suite which welcome away fans. There is no entry charge for supporters to enter. Martin Redfern a visiting Scunthorpe United informs me; 'We arrived early at the ground and were able to go into the Supporters Club located at the far end of the Main Stand. It was a spacious room with two bars and food. The atmosphere was extremely relaxed and friendly with both home and away fans'.

As the ground is on the edge of an industrial estate, there aren't many other drinking establishments around. Neil Young informs me 'The nearest pub to Adams Park, is the Hourglass in Sands (about a 15 minute walk, from the end of the road up to the ground). Away fans are normally okay in small groups except for big games or local derbies'. James Goddard adds; 'The Hourglass is a great pub, where home and away fans mix with no problems. The landlady on our visit was on her own and couldn't do food but sent us to the chippie and let us eat them in her bar - even gave us forks; as she said, it kept us drinking ale in her pub!'

Nigel Cockram a visiting Bristol Rovers fan adds; 'There is a great pub, (but only for the lads) called the White Horse, at 95 West Wycombe Road, which is the A40, about 1 & 1/2 miles from the ground. It opens at 12.00 on Saturdays, has one real ale, BUT has gorgeous strippers from 12.30. Entry is free, but each girl does a collection after each act. I thoroughly recommend this pub. Directions - if in a car, find the Hourglass pub, near the ground which is in Chapel Lane, follow Chapel Lane going away from the ground, until it's end, turn right into West Wycombe Road (A40), the White Horse is about 100 yards on the right hand side. If walking from the Station, you have to pass the White Horse on the way to the ground'.

How To Get There By Car & Where To Park

The stadium is located on the outskirts of Wycombe on the Sands Industrial Estate. Leave the M40 at Junction 4 and take the A4010 towards Aylesbury. Turn left at the 4th roundabout into Lane End Road and then continue straight down this road. Cross another roundabout and into Hillbottom Road. The ground is down at the very bottom of this road. On my last visit I noticed that there were a number of AA road signs labelled 'London Wasps' which were helpful in pointing the way to the ground. 

There is a fair sized car park located at the ground which costs 5 per car, or some of the industrial units provide match day parking (also at around 3). Interestingly the club offer free parking at the stadium, if your car has four occupants. As there is only one road that leads from the stadium, I have heard that it can be a nightmare leaving the official car park at full time. I would recommend therefore, parking in one of the industrial units that line Hillbottom Road towards the ground. I did this and got away alright.

Adam Hodson a visiting Stockport Count fan advises; 'If travelling down the M40 from the North then an alternative route to Adams Park, is to first exit the M40 at Junction 5 and take the A40 towards Stokenchurch & West Wycombe. You will then reach a roundabout that has a Texaco garage on one side and you continue straight along the A40 towards High Wycombe. After around another mile turn right onto A4010 Signposted (M40) & Marlow (Adams Park is signposted from here). You will then reach two mini roundabouts that are situated quite close together. Continue straight on at the first roundabout, and at the second turn right onto Lane End Road towards the Sands Industrial Estate. At the next roundabout turn right into Hillbottom Road for the ground'.

By Train
Wycombe Railway Station is situated around two and half miles away from the stadium and is really too far to walk. It is served by trains from London Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street. You can either take a Taxi (costs about 8) or get the football special bus that runs from the station to the ground on match days. The Football Special (No.32) departs the Railway Station for the stadium at 13.55 on Saturday matchdays and 18.40 for midweek games (cost 2.50 return). The bus returns 10 minutes after the final whistle. Micheal Gerloff a visiting Charlton Athletic fan informs me; 'The shuttle bus was very crowded after the game and it took over 40 minutes to get to the station. We had to run to the platform to make the 17:57 train back to London'.

Paul Willems a visiting Bristol City supporter adds; 'If you have got the energy, then a walk from the station to the ground along the West Wycombe road takes in several pubs and can make the three quarters of an hour or so walk seem a lot less! Those in the know will cut across a park just after the last pub on the West Wycombe Road and be there ten minutes sooner'.

Remember if travelling by train then you can save on the cost of fares by booking in advance. Visit the the trainline website to see how much you can normally save. Click on the trainline logo below:
