There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the town centre and visiting fans may find that getting to the ground in this way is an enjoyable one.

If parking in a town centre car park, visiting fans can buy a ticket for the number 65 bus on Head Street to the train station (a five to ten minute journey), where they can then link up with the shuttle bus service, which is a £2.50 return to the stadium.

There are numerous town centre car parks, whilst there is also an extensive pay car park at Colchester Train Station.

Fans coming by car are able to park in town centre car parks, paying the required fee, before joining up with the Matchday Travel Service.
Parking in Colchester

Covering both existing Clearways and also nearby residential areas, these roads will be marshalled by Colchester United and Essex Police to prevent parking on roads not permitted under the Stadium Travel Plan.

Both Colchester United and visiting supporters should be aware that the immediate area around the Weston Homes Community Stadium is subject to a Parking Exclusion Zone on matchdays.

Please note that there is only limited car parking at the stadium itself, with just under 700 spaces in the main stadium car park. Stadium Parking costs £6.00 and can be booked directly at www.colutickets.com subject to availability. We recommend that fans purchase parking well in advance of the game.
