General Info about the London Road Stadium
The Norwich and Peterborough stand runs for the length of the pitch and can house around 5,000 fans on match day. Opposite this stand you will find the old main stand which unfortunately does have pillars and may restrict your view if your seats are here.
The Norwich & Peterborough South Stand was opened in 1996 and replaced an old terraced part of the stadium. The two-tiered stand is covered and as is the way with all newer stands, it is an all seater.
Furthermore, there is a row of executive boxes running across its middle to the clubs directors and owners. On the other side you will find the Main Stand, it is a much older stand, as it first opened in 1957.
Like the before mentioned stand, it is also two-tiered, it also covers the stand and is all seated so spectators do not get wet during matches. Meanwhile, the other stand is called the London Road Terrace. This covered terrace has a bright white roof and is a vintage looking old stand, with the rood added in the 1950’s. As expected because of its age, there are pillars running across it so your view may be impaired.
The Motorpoint Stand is a new single tier all seated stand which was opened in November 2014, it has a maximum capacity of 2,500. This newly developed stand replaced a stand that looked identical to the London Road End.
You will find the away fans in the Main Stand, here there is a maximum capacity of 1,800 travelling fans. There is a great view from the seats but some away fans have shown their frustrations of the quality of facilities. If you are towards the back row, you will most likely be sitting on a wooden chair and don’t expect to be comfy with limited leg room for all seats.
How To Get To The London Road Stadium

However, if driving is the way you plan to attend, there is parking places opposite the stadium. There is also further spaces on streets, but be aware you will have to get there early to get a good spot.
