Great experience, we parked at Claret Car Park on Edgar Mobbs Way, which was only a 5 min walk from the stadium. It cost £5. The stadium was lovely, all the staff were friendly. Food was very over priced, as it is in any stadium!!

Great ground, bit squished in but that seems to be quite common these days for English stadiums. Good view from anywhere and screens to replay action.

First time visiting Franklins Gardens - use the clubs carparks - £5 entry fee. Fills up quickly so get there no later than 90 mins before the game. Short 5-10 min work to the ground.

Fortunate to visit the home of The Saints rugby at Franklins Gardens for a guitar show. Possibly not what you would expect. I have visited the ground for rugby in the past, but yesterday I had no issue with the parking, which is not normally...More
