From City Centre

The city centre is located roughly two miles west of the stadium. The A3024 and St. Andrews Road runs from the centre of the town, around the northern side of the stadium and onto Britannia Road.

Stadium Area

The stadium is approached from Britannia Road and Belvidere Road from the north, Marine Parade from the south, and St Andrews road from the west. The River Itchen lines the eastern side of the stadium; meaning access from the east requires crossing the A3205 Itchen Bridge and heading north back towards the stadium.

Parking

There are parking restrictions on a matchday, so using all local City Council Car Parks is recommended.

Fans have recommended the Marina Area, which costs £5 and is only a 10 minute walk to the stadium.

Southampton moved to St Mary's in 2001 after 103 years at the Dell.

The move was in keeping with the club’s tradition as Southampton were originally founded by members of the St Mary's Church Young Men’s association.

St Mary’s is located right by the city’s well-known seaport for luxury cruises.
