How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
Travelling by car would be a journey for most. Down the M4 and exit at j45 if you want the quickest route direct to the ground, it'll be well sign posted. If it was me I'd carry on the M4 and head for the city centre though. Park up and have a few before catching a taxi to the ground, £6 odd.

Going by train then you'd arrive at a pretty convenient location. Stepping out of the station you'll be on the High st, however, unless you're looking to purchase smack then I'd give the High St a swerve. Turn left and walk down the High St until you pass a castle ruin, from there on you'll be on Wind St which is essentially one road full of pubs/bars. There is a taxi rank at the top of the street, again taxi should only be £6 or so.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Not too sure if away fans can park up in the away enclosure. If not then it'll be a bit of a ball ache. There are plenty of spots that offer the standard £5-10 parking but it'll be snails pace after the game. Head for the city centre, park up in a pay & display and catch a taxi.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Wherever you are in the ground your view will be superb. The leg room is also tremendous, probably on a par with Wembley.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No experience of away stewards but the home ones have been known to be problematic.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Don't eat once inside but from memory it's pretty standard stuff. Hot dogs, burgers etc.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
As is traditional with Swansea our vocal support is a side stand. It borders with the away fans so the atmosphere is generally pretty decent. Obviously it's dependent on factors but we're up there with the best in the league.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Away fans who land at the ground tend to use the Harvester & Frankie & Bennies, that sounds a bit wank to me though. If you arrive at the ground early I'd head to the Coopers Arms as an away fan, ask a steward for directions (2 minute walk). Avoid The Railway, it's where I drink when going to a game. You wouldn't get hassle in there but the plod have told the landlord to refuse away fans. It's where the more 'hardcore' drink.

As said earlier on if I was an away fan then I'd head to the city centre and take in Wind St. If you like your beer Alty style then the No Sign Wine Bar is a good shout. There are loads of different establishments for a pint and you'll experience no hassle.

Overall Score Out of 10?
It's a bit grey inside the ground which lets it down aesthetically. Atmosphere is generally good and if you follow my advice and drink in town and catch a taxi you'll have a good day out. 8/10

Only ever drove there, and as Abertawe says, its a pretty routine drive, just a long one from up north

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Ive always parked at Landore Social Club, behind the park and ride next to the ground. Not brilliant for getting away after (but then it seems all routes around the ground are quite bad) but right near the ground, and they welcome away fans and put food on as well.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Views are flawless all around.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
Always been fine.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
As above, pretty standard stuff. If you want generic but edible, stick to the retail park near the ground.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Usually one of the better in the Prem these days.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Immediately near the ground, not a whole lot bar the retail park. But as above, you can try the city centre, of the social club is decent.

Overall Score Out of 10?
No complaints at all really, good atmosphere, good away day.
8/10
