How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
Its on the Magic Roundabout...also not signposted at all until you see it!

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
There is free street parking in Shrivenham Road right alongside the ground. Mega quick for getting out too.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I was in the Don Rogers Stand, best stand in the ground, so my view was flawless.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Id already ate, but wish I hadnt as they had my favourite pies!

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Really poor. And what little noise there was was of the cringey banterrific variety. "We are the Town End End, we'll sing when we want, you are the South Stand, you'll sing when you're told..." Head in hands...

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Burger King, a chippy and a couple of pubs all withint the immediate area of the ground.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Atmosphere was its big let down, because its otherwise a good little away day.
9/10

Being one of the few grounds left with old school free-standing floodlights, you can see the ground from the train as you pull into Swindon station from London. The ground is a pretty easy 10 minute walk.
If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
It looks like there is loads.
Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Both times I've been at this ground, I was in the away section in the Arkells stand. You can sit pretty high up and although the stand has a couple of pillars, you should be able to find a seat with an unobstructed view.
How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Didn't eat there.

It was quite loud the second time I went there and if you're situated in the Arkells Stand, I'd imagine that a sizable away following can make a lot of noise.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Plenty of options in between the station and the ground, although Swindon town centre is a bit of a brutalist concrete nightmare.
Overall Score Out of 10?
Good away day out 9/10
