Stadium:mk- Milton Keynes Dons FC Ground Guide

How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)

I went very early to meet up with family, but it seems that the easiest route to get there by the south is going on the M5, before going off it to join the M4, and driving on that (Londonbound, not towards Wales) until J15, then turn off, and take the A420, before joining these roads as you get to them (in order) A34, B4030, A4095 and the A421. Then go down V4 Watling Street, and you should be there. It is very well signposted. If you are from London, then go to the M1, go Northbound until J13, then follow A421 and Groveway to your desitination. Presumably it's well signposted from the motorway. Finally, if you are from the north, then go to the M6 and go . At the M6/M1 junction, join the M1, southbound. Leave at J14, take A509 and the A4146. Then take Groveway to your destination. Again, it is presuambly well sign-posted from the motorway.
If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
If you arrive early, you usually get a space. However, you have to be quick getting out, or otherwise you will be stuck in big traffic jams.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I got seats very low down, and the view was good. I think you should be able to view the pitch from most places.


How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
The noise was great from the away fans, but i didn't hear the home fans sing that much. Also, I was in the home end, with family from Milton Keynes.

Overall Score Out of 10?
I'd give it a 6, it was alright food and size, and a very modern ground. For me, it's a normal ground.

Lots of roundabouts...only ever drove so dont know about the train

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
There are a few industrial estates on Dawson Road on the other side of the dual carriageway from the ground. Loads of free parking here.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Sat in the away end twice in the lower tier, the views are very good all round, even if the lower isnt the steepest.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
Was in the away end both times and they were fine.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Expensive, but the pies are nice to be fair.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Better on my first visit, as the club had decided to close the corners, which forced all the home fans to sit closer together. With similar sized crowds at both games, the atmosphere was far better at the first just because they were dispersed everywhere the second time.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Poor. Retail park city as you would expect.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Its a poor away day, but the ground itself, I hate to say it, is excellent. A really well designed new build, really away fan friendly with a few good little features to make it something other than just another bowl.
8/10
