'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Away Days: Norwich



Disclaimer Time This Vital Leeds document is designed to get you to the ground with an hour to spare before kick off where possible (in this case by 1400). Please check before you depart that the game is definitely on! Vital Leeds/Vital Football hold no responsibility for any alterations or delays encountered along the way and all information is given as a suggestion.

About The Ground Carrow Road has been the home of Norwich City since 1935 and currently holds 24,300 seats. According to Wikipedia, there are plans to stick a hotel in one of the corners...snazzy!

The stadium is located very close to the main railway station and is easily accessible from the main roads around the city.

By Rail There are two choices here arriving with an hour gap of each other.

Leeds->Doncaster: Dep 0919 Arr 1006 (Northern) Doncaster->Peterborough: Dep 1029 Arr 1115 (GNER) Peterborough->Norwich: Dep 1138 Arr 1313 (Central)

Alternatively an hour later... Leeds->Grantham: Dep 1005 Arr 1112 (GNER) Grantham->Norwich: Dep 1206 Arr 1413 (Central)

From the railway station exit, cross the car park and turn left onto the main road (Koblenz Avenu), as you follow it round you should be able to spot Carrow Road eventually, various sources say around 10-15 minutes.

By Road The most horrific thing about this part of the world is that they haven`t discovered motorways (come on, even Scotland has them now!) This means you will have to put up with the joys of A-roads. From Leeds, take the A1, and then the A1(M) until just after 60 miles or so, then it`s the A17 forever (well, not forever but a long time.) At Kings Lynn take the A47, onto the A11. Entering Norwich, you need the A416, follow the ring road round until you come across the ground. If in any doubt, the railway station is a good place to aim for as the ground isn`t too far away at all. The AA say 3hours 45minutes.

By Jetpack Come on now be serious if you`ve got a jetpack you don`t need instructions, just fly in a straight line.
