If its 4000, that must be close to what Posh themselves would bring... no? Whats an average Posh home support.

Be great....., Town away support outnumbering the home support. I'm sure if the results are favourable, that'll happen throughout the season....., places like Rochdale.

Pleasure Fair Meadow Council PE2 8AT £4 0.5km Away fans are advised to park at this council owned car park which is secure and is just a 5-10 minute walk from the stadium.

Hope to get parked on the Fair Meadow car park as according to google maps it is only a 4 minute walk to the ground.
Should just be able to manage that. :wink:

From maps off my phone but most can normally walk a bit quicker than what’s suggested

Depends how able bodied you are. No spring chicken but get around quicker than some. Never been to a game at Peterborough, do they still feature at London Road. City itself if worth a visit i.e. Nene Valley railway, Cathedral and lots of park and recreation area from recollection of past visit.

25 minutes or one mile whatever doesn't seem too much to handle. I think the idea of a bit of exercise or effort puts the fear of God into some people, not suggesting those with an excessive penchant for burgers and candy bars, more so lazy fucks who won't the entertain the idea of simple walking to meet their needs (or dive into the nearest cab operator to save a few meters)

For me, it’s not the 25minutes, or the mile....., it’s the listening to the 10 “managers” I’d be walking with. Much prefer some general chit-chat with a cabbie.

Taken from the football ground guide;

Close to the ground is an unusual drinking outlet called Charters. This former Dutch barge is moored on the River Nene, just a few minutes walk away from London Road. Upstairs is a Chinese restaurant, but downstairs there is a bar, which had on my last visit 12 real ales on tap. It was friendly enough and fans were able to take their drinks out onto the river bank, which makes it quite pleasant when the weather is good.

Alun Thomas a visiting Wrexham supporter adds; 'We enjoyed the Palmerston Arms on Oundle Reload. It is away fan friendly and has around 10 real ales on offer. It is around a 15 minute walk away from London Road'. This pub is owned by Batemans Brewery and serves a number of their own ales, as well as additional guest ales. It is a strange pub, in so much that apart from one real ale on handpump, the rest of the ales are dispensed straight from the barrels in the cellar, which can be viewed through a glass window behind the bar. Please note that the pub doesn't stock the likes of Guinness, Carling etc... The pub also doesn't serve food, but doesn't object to customers bringing in their own. A few doors away is the Yard of Ale pub, which also serves real ale and has the benefit of showing Sky Sports. Handily located near to these pubs which you pass on the way to the ground is the Woodston fish and chip shop. Both Charters, the Palmerston Arms and the Yard of Ale, are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

Whilst Gordon Pearson recommends the Peacock, which can be found 'as you come over the River Nene, proceed down London Road past the ground on the left and the pub is situated on the right at the traffic lights next to a KFC drive through'. Further on from the Peacock, turning right onto Park Street is the Coalheavers Arms, which has a selection of ales and ciders, a sizeable beer garden and is family friendly. It normally has a good mix of home and away supporters on matchdays. You can also street park in this area.

Alternatively, the ground is within walking distance (10 minutes) of the city centre (which is very pleasant and complete with a cathedral) where there are plenty of good pubs to be found. Most have doormen present on matchdays, but seem happy enough to admit away fans. If you are arriving by train then the Brewery Tap near to the station on Westgate, is worth a visit. The home of Oakham Ales, this spacious bar serves good beer, Thai food and allows you a view into the brewery itself. Pete Cluderay informs me; 'I discovered an excellent pub just up the road from the Brewery Tap called the Wortley Almshouses which is housed within quite an old building. It serves reasonably priced beers by Sam Smiths as well as food.'

Richard Feek tells me; 'Pubs wise there are a couple of notable additions that have recently opened in the City Centre, The Bumble Inn which a small micro pub located on Westgate (opposite the Wortley Almshouse) although on the small side it was very welcoming and serves a range of Real Ales, Ciders and continental lagers. The Stoneworks is a recently opened Craft Beer bar which has opened on Church Street in the City Centre, this is a fair sized open plan bar serving a good quality selection of craft beers, ciders and spirits, something slightly different to the usual City Centre pubs. The Drapers Arms on Cowgate is a two-minute walk from the Station and is a large welcoming Wetherspoons pub. And finally the Solstice is hidden away behind the City Market on Northminster Road, this a large modern yet traditional bar showing sports on various screens, it also has a large outdoor and partly covered seating area outside with Plasma screens. Food is served as is Real Ale and the usual selection of drinks. Attached to the Solstice is Harrys Tea Room for those who would prefer a more relaxed non-alcoholic pre-match drink or two'.

Please note that alcohol is not made available to away supporters inside the stadium.
