Alternatively, the Sovereign Centre on Christchurch Road, which is approximately a 10 minutes walk from the ground, is available for matchday parking. Fees are £2 or £2.50, depending on the duration of your stay. 

Getting there by train

The nearest train station to the stadium is Pokesdown, which is roughly a mile away.
