|What's Adams Park Like?|
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
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).
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.

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?|
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'.

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
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'.

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'.
