Away Days: Leicester City-King Power Stadium
Author: ExWHUEmployee. Published: 15 April 2016 at 8:29pm
Right, it is time to move on from the heartbreak of Wednesday and finish the season in style. Next up is Leicester and we all know how tough it is going to be, but we also know that if they play like we know they can then 3 points is certainly possible.
Stadium: King Power Stadium
Address: Filbert Way, Leicester, LE2 7FL
Away fans are located in the corner of the North and East Stands of The King Power Stadium and can enter the stadium up to 90 minutes before kick-off. Fans are set a long way back from the pitch but the views are pretty good, as there are no restricted views. There is also plenty of leg-room and the seats are comfortable.
From Upton Park it takes roughly between 2 and 2hrs 30 minutes by car. Make sure you leave with plenty of time, as the traffic around the ground can become very congested.
Leave the M1 at Junction 21, take the M69/A5460 exit to Coventry/Leicester. At the roundabout, take he 3rd exit onto A5460. At the next roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Narborough Road. Turn right into Upperton Road and continue straight onto Raw Dykes Road. You will see the ground at the next right, Flibert Way.
It may be best to consider parking further away from the stadium if you want a quick exit. There is parking available at the Freemans Common Business Park which are run on a charitable basis with the £4.00 parking fee going to the Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre.
Further parking is available in the City Centre, signposted on the approach roads and also at a nearby NCP car park in Welford Road is about a twenty minute walk. Also read the Food/Drink section below, as there is another car parking option listed.

King Power Stadium is a five minute drive or twentyminute walk from Leicester Railway Station (London Road, Leicester, LE2 0QB).
A walking route is signposted, but you need to exit the station and cross the road. Turn left and follow Conduit Street round to the right, you will come to a left turn onto Waterloo Way. Keep the main road to your left and after half a mile you need to take a right onto Aylestone Walk. After 100 yards, take a left onto Aylestone Road and continue for approximately five minutes. Take the next right into Raw Dykes Road, you will reach the stadium and away supporters entrances in front of you.

Avoid Symphony Rooms and The F Bar, as these are home fans only.
The Counting House (Almond Road, LE2 7LH) – The nearest option, it is about a ten minute walk from The King Power Stadium.
The Huntsman (Narborough Road, LE3 0PE) – should take just over fifteen minutes to walk, but there is also a small carpark there which is reasonable in price.
The Last Platagenet (Granby Street, LE1 6FD) – If you are arriving by train then this is a good option. Turn right out of the station, cross the road and turn left into Granby Street.
Or finally, the City Centre will have lots of options for food and drink and will take just over twentyminutes to walk to the ground.
If you aren’t one of the 3200 fans making the trip to The King Power Stadium, make sure you keep an eye on @WestHamWaycouk on Twitter for live updates throughout the game. I’m hoping for a happier outcome on Sunday and wish all of those travelling a safe journey and a great day out. COYI!
