Johnny Moore and Pam Wilkins bring Blues fans the key information for Pompey’s visit to Home Park.

Stadium: Home Park

Opened: 1893

Capacity: 17,995

Record attendance: 43,596

Home Park is based in the Milehouse area of the city, next to Central Park (Plymouth, PL2 3DQ).

Pompey fans will be behind one goal in the covered Barn Park End.

If you are making the trip by road, travel via Dorchester, Bridport and Honiton on the M27, A31, A35, A30 joining the M5 at Exeter then continuing on to the A38 Devon Expressway into Plymouth.

Take the turning for the A386, signposted Home Park, City Centre, Ferry Port and Tavistock.

At the roundabout as you come off the A38, take the second exit A386 – signposted Plymouth Argyle Home Park, Ferry Port.

Stay on this road for approximately a mile and the stadium is on your left.

There is quite a large car park at the ground, which is free. However, spaces in the car park are operated on a first in before the game, first out after the game basis.

If you are last in, then on average it takes around half an hour to clear.

The car park will probably be full an hour or so before kick-off.

There is some street parking on the side roads on your right as you drive down Outland Road.

Alternatively, there is an 8.31am train from Fratton, which will get you to Plymouth at 1.13pm – with changes at Salisbury and Exeter St David’s.

Plymouth Station is about a mile from Home Park, so either grab a taxi or take a 20-minute walk.

As you come out of the station, turn right and down the hill under the railway bridge.

Keep walking straight along this road (A386) and you will eventually reach the ground on your right.

Alternatively, at the roundabout just downhill from the station, turn right into Central Park Avenue and then take the second left into Holdsworth Street.

This will lead you up a steep hill into Central Park, where you will see the ground as soon as you reach the top of the hill.

As you would expect for a naval port, there are plenty of pubs in town.

Nearer the stadium however, the Britannia, pictured below, Wolseley Road, PL2 3AA, a sizeable Wetherspoons, is your best bet and only a 10-minute walk away.

From the Home Park car park, turn left and the pub is down the road on the right.

It serves the usual food and beers and nearby there is usually a van selling pasties.

The Fanzone marquee at the ground has very limited space and away fans haven’t been admitted on past visits.
