This is an old classic looking ground that just oozes character. On one side are two seated covered stands. The oldest of these is the Main Stand, that looks as of it has been there from almost when the ground opened in 1909, but probably dates later than that. It has a raised covered seating area, which means that spectators have to climb a small set of stairs to enter it. It has a steeply angled roof which points sharply downwards, with windshields to each side and a number of supporting pillars across the front. Below is a small uncovered terrace area, in front of which are the team dugouts. Beside the Main Stand is a smaller more modern structure, which is all seated, covered and has a couple of supporting pillars. This stand is known as the Family Stand and is now allocated to away fans.

On the other side off the ground, is a rather old but quaint looking covered terrace that runs the full length of the pitch. At one end is large steep open terrace that is known as the Bristol End, which is also given to away fans. There is a noticeable slope to the pitch that descends from this area down to the other end of the ground. This open end has a small shallow terrace that has nets behind in an attempt to stop balls being kicked out of the ground. The ground is completed by a set of four traditional floodlights in each corner of the stadium.

The Club have announced that they are exploring a part redevelopment of Twerton Park, which forms part of a wider generation of the High Street Area. Some of the proposed improvements include a new Grandstand, dressing rooms, social club and an artificial 3G pitch.

If segregation is in force, then the majority of away fans are housed in the Bristol End, which is an open terrace located at one end of the ground. The terrace is set back a bit from the pitch, with a tarmac walk way in-between it and the pitch. If the weather is not that great, then it may be a better idea if you can to go for one of the 230 seats given to away supporters in the  Family Stand, as at least this is covered, although there are a couple of supporting pillars to contend with that may impede your view, but at least you will be dry.

There is a social club at the ground which generally admits away fans, but may not do so for some of the higher profile games. Otherwise if you exit the Club car park and turn right along the parade of shops then you will reach the Old Crown pub. This small traditional pub, has a small beer garden, pool table and has real ale on offer from Moles Brewery. Handily located next to the pub is a fish & chip shop.

Jon Blain adds; 'About five minutes walk from Oldfield Station on Lower Bristol Road is the Royal Oak, which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Also on Lower Bristol Road, near to the retail park is the Golden Fleece'.

Although this may not be the most direct route it does have the advantage of avoiding Bath City Centre, which is normally heavily congested:

Leave the M4 at Junction 19 and go onto the M32. At the end of the M32 head towards Bath (A4). On nearing Bath take the A36 Lower Bristol Road. After one mile turn right under a Railway Bridge (signposted Bath City FC) and into Twerton High Street. Take the 2nd left for the ground entrance. There is a car park at the ground which holds 150 cars, otherwise street parking.

Oldfield Park Railway Station is the nearest station to Twerton Park, being located just under a mile away. It is served by trains from Bath Spa and Bristol Temple Meads. Bath Spa has a more regular service from London Paddington & Bristol Temple Meads and is located just under two miles away from the ground.

Brian Scott informs me; 'Bath Bus Station is located only a few hundred yards from the main Bath Railway station. Exit the station on the north side and turn left. Walk along Dorchester street and within a short while you will see a glass building in front of you. This is the bus waiting area. Bus number 5 runs through Twerton HIgh Street. You need to get off at the first or second stop in that street. The ground is only a short distance away and the floodlight pylons are clearly visible behind the houses as the ground is on a hillside. Buses run approximately four per hour throughout the day, but may be fewer for an evening match. Although it is not that far, due to traffic, the bus takes about 20 minutes'.

  • Bath City v Luton Town
    Tuesday, September 20th, 2010, 7.45pm
    Conference Premier League
    Paul Willott (Luton Town fan)

    I was looking forward to a Tuesday visit to Twerton Park as not only did it give me a chance to visit a ground with former league pedigree (having hosted Bristol Rovers for some years), but it gave me a golden chance to have a brief nosey round Bath itself, a city I had previously failed to visit.

    Journey was fairly easy, travelling by car from Kent, along the M4 and purposely using the A46 against advice to thereby gain a view of Bath itself.  As for the ground itself, I arrived well over two hours before kick off and secured a parking berth on the street almost right outside the ground which was quite handy.
    Given the rapidly deteriorating weather, my time before kick off was divided between an excellent chippy next to the ground, and the club's own sports bar which seemed very relaxed and friendly.
    The ground itself is fairly old fashioned which I like. It is complete with proper floodlight pylons which help you home in when first approaching, especially as I do not and cannot bother myself with satnav equipment.  It struck me as an almost three sided affair, as there didn't appear to be much of a terrace at all opposite the away end!  

    The more vibrant home fans use the covered terrace opposite the Main Stand, and for away fans there are 250 covered seats adjacent to the Main Stand which on the night of my visit were fully occupied due to the fairly torrential rain! For the rest of the 440+ travelling fans that night, it was a case of wrapping up and thanking 'lucky stars' for bringing a warm hat and scarf.
    The game itself was reasonably entertaining, although given both clubs recent form, it was clear that home fans were more pleased with the result than the visiting ones!   
    Having parked right outside the ground, it was a case of hop skip and a jump to get in car and aim for the M32 and home, although I suspect the exit roads could get very congested if crowds were any bigger than the 1,100+ present that night.
    I enjoyed my day, but would caution any-one planning their first visit to Twerton Park to ensure they have wet weather clothes to hand, and get there ridiculously early for ease of parking.

  • Bath City vs Wealdstone National League South Play-off Eliminator Wednesday 1st May 2019, 7.45pm Joe White (Neutral)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Twerton Park?
    I've been meaning to revisit Twerton Park over the last couple of seasons. I'm a Bristol City fan living in Bristol and since the redevelopment of Ashton gate I have missed the feel and atmosphere of a traditional ground. I've been to Twerton Park once, many years ago, when Bristol city played them in a pre-season friendly.
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
    I drove from Bristol. Arriving close to the ground around 18:15. I parked on the road close to The Full Moon pub, two minutes walk from the ground. I was expecting to find it difficult to park being a big game but there were loads of available places. It helps with the ground being quite far out from the centre of Bath.
    Full Moon Pub & Twerton Park Floodlight
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
    I met an old mate who is a Swansea fan at the Full Moon. It is a decent traditional pub which was fairly busy with fans of both teams inside, but with no hint of tension or trouble. Reasonably priced too for Bath at £2.90 for a pint of Ale.
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Twerton Park?
    Approaching from the High Street you see the large floodlights and then entering the car park are two stands and a large clubhouse/bar that we didn't go inside. We went in early, paying £13 at the turnstiles and we walked along the terrace in front of the Grandstand and stood next to the segregation. The away end to our right was comprised of a seated covered stand on the corner and quite a large open terrace behind the goal. The terrace is separated in two, with the away fans being the same side as the Grandstand and the other part being left empty. The ground has a great traditional feel.
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
    I felt Bath were the better team in the first half despite going 1 nil down quite early on. The Wealdstone keeper made some great saves. The Wealdstone fans were very vocal and had travelled in decent numbers, I guess there were around 300-400? The vocal home fans were opposite me in the covered terrace that runs the width of the pitch. It was familiar to hear Wurzel chants and ones included "City", I could have been at a Bristol City game. 
    Away Fans On The Right In The Open Terrace
    In the second half, the vocal home fans moved themselves and their flags to the opposite end, towards where their team were attacking. We switched stands and joined them in the corner. Wealdstone came out by far the better team in the second half and seemed stronger, quicker and went two nil up. With Bath still not offering much they got their striker sent off with about 20 mins to go for a dangerous sliding tackle on the keeper who got stretchered off. With Bath losing 2-0, down to ten men and being the inferior team I considering driving home. 
    But I stayed and saw Bath pull a goal back with a shot outside the box that took a wild looping deflection over the back-pedalling, substitute keeper. After this with 15 mins or so to go, it was all Bath and they could have easily pulled level. Leaving themselves open, Wealdstone attacked scored a third sparking wild celebrations in the away end with some fans running on the pitch to celebrate. Very impressed with the away fans, loud throughout and clearly very passionate about their team. And yes, I did pick out the Wealdstone Raider.
    Looking Over At The Grandstand
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
    No traffic at all from where I was parked just two minutes from the ground.
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
    A really good game to watch and I was impressed by the standard on display. It was a passionate crowd from both sides which is remarkable for 6/7 tier football. This country has to be unique in that respect. I will definitely be returning.
  • Game Attended

    Bath City v BillericayTown


    National League South



    Kick Off Time


    Team Supported


    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the ground itself?

    Like so many, I have been deprived of my regular fix these last 18 months, so the prospect of at last watching a meaningful game of football was too hard to resist. I wanted to ease myself gently back into the groove by attending at a level where there would be no hassle. National League South is ideal and although I had visited Twerton long ago it was still on the list for an NLS game.

    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

    Because of engineering work in the Bristol area my train terminated at Bath. Onward connections to Oldfield Park being of limited value it was more practical to walk and a pleasant off road route taking in part of the Avon cycleway was negotiated.

    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

    As it happens I had bags of time before the game so it was spent profitably to ascend Twerton Hill where there is an O.S trig pillar (another of my quirky pastimes. Here I consumed my packed lunch with glorious views overlooking Bath. I dropped down the hill to the ground in about 30 minutes. I took up position behind the goal Bath were attacking, changing ends at half time of course. As the clock ticked down towards the start of a new season a stirring rendition of 'Nessum Dorma' was performed by local opera singer Anthony Flaum. Very emotional I have to say.

    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the stadium?

    Twerton Park was much as I remembered it and a glorious view of it can be had from Innox Park to the south. It really is a proper football ground in every sense with sturdy if well-worn stands. There are no airs and graces here. All is as it should be.

    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

    Largely dominated by Bath who put together some fast incisive football. It took 43 minutes to break the deadlock with a cracker from Mo Touray. From just inside the penalty area he let loose a left foot rocket into the top corner. Cooke scored the second on 72 minutes with an assured (if deflected) shot on the turn then all was wrapped up 2 minutes into added time with Fletcher gathering a loose ball and firing it low into the far corner. Billericay I am afraid looked somewhat below par.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game

    Using part road and part riverside the return walk to Bath Spa station took 43 minutes.I was able therefore to make the 17.43 to Reading which suited me admirably.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out

    The attendance of 1,180 was the highest opening day figure for a BCFC game since 1972. Hardly surprising really. Just what was required to re-connect with the game that we have all been so desperately missing. Turnstiles, cash entry, terraces, crash barriers and properly appointed tea hut. Everything was so near-normal that it was difficult to comprehend what people have been through. Let us not forget that. I shall continue my tour of the grounds at this level to maintain the positivity.
