Wycombe Away information for fans
Although Fulham haven’t met Wycombe in a competitive game for a rather long period we have visited Adams Park in an enjoyable pre-season friendly a few seasons ago. The ground itself is a throwback to a different era of football and makes for a welcome change from the reproduced new grounds which feature so heavily in the Championship. The away end is all seated and holds 2000.
Getting to the ground – Train
Direct trains from London to Wycombe operate out of London Marylebone and take about half an hour. As mentioned the ground is situated a fair way from the ground (over two miles) so if you’re coming straight from work be advised that you will need a bit of extra time to get there. Taxis can be found at the station and cost about £8 or alternatively a shuttle bus can be taken for £2.50 from the station to the ground which departs the station at 18:40 for midweek games. After the game I have been informed it can be a bit of a nightmare getting back to the station, the shuttle bus leaves 10 minutes after the final whistle and can be very busy so allow yourself a bit of time if you’re aiming for a specific train.
If you are in Wycombe early enough the walk is about 45 minutes along West Wycombe road and is well signposted, there are many pubs to make pit stops in along the way if you want to break the journey up slightly. I have been advised by previous travellers that you can cut across a park after the last pub and shave 10 minutes off the journey time.
Getting to the ground – Car
Again, having never been to Wycombe by car I can only go on what others have advised. Wycombe as a club offer free match day parking to cars with over 4 occupants however road access to the ground can be a nightmare so it has been said that you’re better off parking in one of the industrial units on Hillbottom Road which cost between £3 and £5 and walking. If looking for the ground it has in the past been signposted by signs for London Wasps.
Where to drink
As mentioned above, there are plenty of drinking options along West Wycombe Road if coming by train all of which are supposedly away friendly. If you’re looking for something closer to the ground then it should be noted that away fans are welcome in the Supporters Club Bar at the far end of the main stand which does a selection of beers and ales as well as food. The nearest pub to the ground is a fair way away as the ground is generally surrounded by industrial estates but the Hourglass in Sands is a 15 minute walk away and comes highly recommended.
