Our Impressions of London Road Ground

The covered Norwich & Peterborough Stand runs along the southern side of the pitch with a row of executive boxes separating the two tiers. The covered Main Stand runs along the north side.

At each end of the pitch there are covered standing terraces - the London Road Terrace at the west end with the Moyes Terrace at the east end.

Away fans (up to 850) are located in block A of the seated Main Stand (near the Moyes Terrace end). Most fans have unimpeded views of the pitch. If a large number of Away fans are expected, the Moyes Terrace (capacity 3,475) is opened. It has a good atmosphere but views of the pitch are obscured by five supporting pillars and the gap at the back lets in cold winds.

Toilets are small, down narrow corridors but - unusually for most lower-league grounds - the sinks have hot water!

Disabled Facilities at London Road Ground

Disabled parking is located at the Moyes End car park, free to disabled match-day attendees. There is also free parking for blue badge holders in the City Council car park at the front of the stadium.

Away fans in wheelchairs are located at pitch level in front of the Moyes Terrace, near the Main Stand, with easy access up a small ramp. However there are no seats for carers and no toilets or catering facilities nearby. Being at the front of the Moyes Terrace means that when it rains from most directions, disabled wheelchair fans get wet.
