On one side of the ground is the impressive looking Frank Adams Stand, opened in 1996. This was named in memory of the man who originally donated to the club their previous ground at Loakes Park. It is a large two tiered stand, complete with a row of executive boxes and it dwarfs the rest of the stadium. The other three stands are smaller affairs but are at least all covered. Only the Greene King IPA Stand at the home end remains as terracing. Opposite is the Dreams Stand, housing away supporters, a medium sized single tiered stand, with windshields to either side. Along the other side of the ground is the Main Stand. This single tiered stand has a raised seating area, meaning that fans access it by climbing a small set of stairs in front of it. There is a large video screen situated in one corner of the stadium, between the Dreams and Main Stands.

Away fans are mostly located at one end of the ground in the Dreams Stand, where just over 2,000 supporters can be accommodated. For teams with a larger following then 350 seats are also made available in the Main Stand, increasing the total allocation to 2,350.

I personally had an enjoyable day at Wycombe. The club has a relaxed friendly feel about it. The ground is situated in a nice setting with a wooded hill over looking the ground (this normally has a small contingent of supporters watching the game for nothing) and with green fields surrounding the other sides. The standard football ground fayre of Cheeseburgers (£3), Hot Dogs (£3), Double Cheeseburgers (£4.50), Phat's Chicken Balti Pie (£3) and Pasties (Cheese or Cornish £3), Sausage Rolls (£2.70) and Chips (£2), are available from the refreshment kiosk.

David Abbott a visiting Northampton Town supporter informs me; 'I have to say what an excellent ground Adams Park is. Good signposting around the ground, good organisation, good atmosphere, excellent view from the away end and friendly fans. It was a very pleasant visit and if all grounds and supporters were as welcoming and well-behaved as Wycombe the game would be all the better for it'. 

Toby Hillier a visiting Brentford fan adds; 'The ground is absolutely splendid and set in wonderful surroundings. Although the atmosphere was pretty flat on my visit, the beating of a drum in the home end often rallied the home fans behind the team. The home fans are a friendly bunch and all of the staff that we encountered were also very friendly. You can park at the ground itself, however it is a nightmare trying to get out at the end of the game. It took us 50 minutes to do the 2 miles back to the motorway. My suggestion would be to park a mile or so away from the ground and walk. This should provide you with a quicker route away from the game'.

Mike Jordan a visiting Torquay United fan tells me; 'I found the home fans, stewards and staff of Wycombe to be friendly & welcoming towards away supporters. Also, for visitors interested in wildlife, at half time or during dull moments, look out for Red Kites drifting over the ground!'

At the stadium itself, there is the Scores Bar and Vere Suite which welcome away fans. There is no entry charge for supporters to enter. Martin Redfern a visiting Scunthorpe United informs me; 'We arrived early at the ground and were able to go into the Supporters Club located at the far end of the Main Stand. It was a spacious room with two bars and food. The atmosphere was extremely relaxed and friendly with both home and away fans'. Located just outside the away fans entrance is a heated marquee which is for visiting supporters only. Inside there is a bar selling alcoholic drinks, whilst nearby is a mobile catering unit which sells hot food, including pies.

As the ground is on the edge of an industrial estate, there aren't many other drinking establishments around. Neil Young informs me 'The nearest pub to Adams Park, is the Hourglass in Sands (about a 15 minute walk, from the end of the road up to the ground). Away fans are normally okay in small groups except for big games or local derbies'. James Goddard adds; 'The Hourglass is a great pub, where home and away fans mix with no problems. The landlady on our visit was on her own and couldn't do food but sent us to the chippie and let us eat them in her bar – even gave us forks; as she said, it kept us drinking ale in her pub!' 

Nigel Cockram a visiting Bristol Rovers fan adds; 'There is a great pub, (but only for the lads) called the White Horse, at 95 West Wycombe Road, which is the A40, about 1 & 1/2 miles from the ground. It opens at 12.00 on Saturdays, has one real ale, BUT has gorgeous strippers from 12.30. Entry is free, but each girl does a collection after each act. I thoroughly recommend this pub. Directions – if in a car, find the Hourglass pub, near the ground which is in Chapel Lane, follow Chapel Lane going away from the ground, until it's end, turn right into West Wycombe Road (A40), the White Horse is about 100 yards on the right hand side. If walking from the Station, you have to pass the White Horse on the way to the ground'.

Having had a plan to build new 15.000 capacity stadium, on the current Sports Centre site (next to Junction 4 of the M40), turned down by the local authorities. Then the Club are considering their next move.

The stadium is located on the outskirts of Wycombe on the Sands Industrial Estate. Leave the M40 at Junction 4 and take the A4010 towards Aylesbury. Turn left at the 4th roundabout into Lane End Road and then continue straight down this road. Cross another roundabout and into Hillbottom Road. The ground is down at the very bottom of this road. 

Car Parking

There is a fair sized car park located at the ground which costs £5 per car, or some of the industrial units provide match day parking (also at around £3). As there is only one road that leads from the stadium, I have heard that it can be a nightmare leaving the official car park at full time. I would recommend therefore, parking in one of the industrial units that line Hillbottom Road towards the ground. I did this and got away alright.

Adam Hodson a visiting Stockport Count fan advises; 'If travelling down the M40 from the North then an alternative route to Adams Park, is to first exit the M40 at Junction 5 and take the A40 towards Stokenchurch & West Wycombe. You will then reach a roundabout that has a Texaco garage on one side and you continue straight along the A40 towards High Wycombe. After around another mile turn right onto A4010 Signposted (M40) & Marlow (Adams Park is signposted from here). You will then reach two mini roundabouts that are situated quite close together. Continue straight on at the first roundabout, and at the second turn right onto Lane End Road towards the Sands Industrial Estate. At the next roundabout turn right into Hillbottom Road for the ground'. There is also the option of renting a private driveway near in the local area via YourParkingSpace.co.uk.

Wycombe Railway Station is situated around two and half miles away from the stadium and is really too far to walk. It is served by trains from London Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street. You can either take a Taxi (costs about £8) or get the football special bus that runs from the station to the ground on match days. The Football Special provided by Arriva departs the Railway Station for the stadium at 13:05 & 14:05 on Saturday matchdays and 17:50 & 18:50 for midweek games (cost £4 Adult Return, £2 Children). The bus returns 20 minutes after the final whistle. Micheal Gerloff a visiting Charlton Athletic fan informs me; 'The shuttle bus was very crowded after the game and it took over 40 minutes to get to the station. We had to run to the platform to make the 17:57 train back to London'. Also the station shuttle bus on the return leg doesn't accept single fare passengers, only those who travelled to the ground on the bus before the game and bought a return ticket are able to do so. Paul Willems a visiting Bristol City supporter adds; 'If you have got the energy, then a walk from the station to the ground along the West Wycombe road takes in several pubs and can make the three quarters of an hour or so walk seem a lot less! Those in the know will cut across a park just after the last pub on the West Wycombe Road and be there ten minutes sooner'.

Ian Newman a visiting Morecambe fan adds; 'I travelled by train and arrived just before 12 noon. The Football shuttle bus from the station doesn't start until later, so I took a ten minute walk to the town bus station and got the number 16 bus to the ground. From the bus station, you can also get the number 32 or 48 which drops you at the Hourglass pub.'

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Exeter City
    League One
    Saturday, March 20th 2010, 3pm
    Keiran Hutchins (Exeter City fan)

    1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

    I was looking forward to this game, as I didn’t make the game at Adams Park they season before, and had heard lots of good things about not only the ground, but the club in general.

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

    Journey was fine, followed the High Wycombe signs going along the M4, and then the Adams Park signs once in Wycombe itself. As for car parking, we managed to find a space in a road that was off the main road out of Wycombe. It was around a 10 minute walk to the ground.

    3. What you did before the game pub/chippy…. home fans friendly?

    I met up with some mates, and we managed to find a pub called “The Hour Glass” It was a good, old fashioned, proper pub, with very friendly bar staff. There were a few home fans in there, and they seemed friendly enough.

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

    When we first got to the ground, it looked nice enough, and certainly looked like a proper football league ground. The away end did live up to all expectations, and was indeed top notch. The view was quality, and could see over the hills ahead. It holds approximately 2,000 away fans. Opposite to the away end is a small terrace, which also holds around 2,000 fans. To the right of the away end is a small, all seated stand which, looked like it could hold around 1,000 fans. Finally, to the left of the away end, is a large, two tiered stand which really stands out compared to the rest of the ground, but not in a bad way.

    5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc.

    The game was a proper relegation “Six Pointer” as Wycombe were 2nd from bottom and Exeter were 4th from bottom, so a win for any team could prove crucial. The atmosphere coming from the away end was quality, especially as our manager had said before the game that he wanted the Exeter fans to try and make every away game like a home game. The Wycombe stewards were really good, and let us stand for the full 90 minutes, they even didn’t mind us bringing lots of red balloons! The food was good quality food, although a bit on the pricey side. I didn’t use the toilets, so cannot comment. 

    The 1st half was average, which led to a few moans from the home fans. The 2nd half turned out to be much better as this was when the game got interesting. Wycombe scored two goals in 6 minutes at the start of the 2nd half, which suddenly woke the home fans up, but was soon kept quiet again, after a wonder strike from 25 yards from our young centre midfielder, Liam Sercombe. In the last minute of normal time Richard Logan latched on to a through ball to slot the ball past the Wycombe keeper to send the travelling fans into raptures. Logan was even booked and then later on fined for his goal celebration.

    6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Getting away from the ground was easy enough, as the club let the pedestrians walk out before they open the official club car park.

    7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    Overall, it was a good away day, especially after our “late, late show.” Fully enjoyed the day as a whole, and will be looking to go again if Exeter ever get to go back.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v AFC Bournemouth
    League Two
    Saturday, November 19th 2011, 3pm
    Mark Newbury (AFC Bournemouth fan)

    1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground?

    I had never been to Adams Park before and seeing the reviews on this website it was all positive. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to see my team play there. I've heard great things about the club and wanted to check it out for myself.

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

    Me and my mate travelled up on the supporters coaches so it was very easy. Left Dean Court about midday (after a cracking fry up!) and watched the Norwich/Arsenal match on the way. Parked just outside the ground so didn't have any distance at all to walk.

    3. What you did before the game pub/chippy…. home fans friendly?

    Usual stuff really, grabbed a programme (special mention goes to the stewards and programme sellers, they were the friendliest I've ever come across at an away game), saw the cherries team coach arrive and then made our way into the ground.

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

    The ground is great, set on the edge on a small industrial estate but benefiting from rolling hills all around which gives a fantastic view (especially from the away end). The first thing you see is the top of the 2 tiered Frank Adams stand which is really impressive. Away fans are housed in the Dreams stand which offers fantastic views on the action with no supporting pillars. Decent leg room (especially as I'm over 6ft 2).

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

    Food and drinks inside the stadium were good, as well as the burger van outside!The game was a cracker. The atmosphere was superb from the away end. The official away attendance was about 900 but it seemed an awful lot more. The home terrace opposite had the drum going as well so it made for some decent noise. The game itself was very close. Bournemouth went ahead with a good finish from Marc Pugh. Luckily for us Wycombe missed a penalty in front of us to keep the game at 1-0. That's the way it finished thanks to some back to the wall defending. We held on to claim the 3 points.

    6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    As has been mentioned on here before, it does take a little bit of time to get away from the ground purely because there is just one road in and out of the area around the stadium. Wasn't an issue though, back on the coach and reading the programme.

    7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A fantastic club to visit, great staff, nice fans and a fantastic stadium. Next time we are in the same league, I'll be going back! Would recommend to all! …oh and the result was the icing on the cake!

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Carlisle United
    League One
    Friday, April 6th 2012, 3pm
    Craig Milne (Carlisle United fan)

    1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

    It's been a while since my last visit and this was going to be another important game in the run in to the end of the season.

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

    The drive was great no traffic problems and it was a Bank Holiday. Finding the ground was easy it's straight off the motorway and follow the brown signs. 10 mins from the motorway if your 2 hours before k.o. any later though and the traffic's terrible expect a long wait or use the park and ride provided. I parked in what they call the top car park and because we arrived before 1pm parking was free..brilliant. Otherwise the industrial estate charges for you to use their front or rear car parks. Around a fiver seemed the going rate.

    3. What you did before the game pub/chippy…. home fans friendly?

    Visited the Half Moon around about 15mins away but a bit of a mission as all the locals I asked had never heard of it. It used to be an old traditional pub, now it some sort of smart wine bar type thing. A decent pint though of Harveys Sussex ale and an outside terrace, punters were all friendly , staff not so much. Hot food was available.

    Then we walked back to the closer pub the Hourglass, much better, friendly staff, pool table, a good mix of home and away supporters. There's a decent bit of garden out the back for a sunny day. Again a nice pint, Brakspears this time.

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

    The ground is in an ideal position for me close to the motorway and tucked behind an industrial estate. The grounds certainly grown since my first visit. The away end is a good size and has enough snack bars and facilities. The stand helped to create a good atmosphere. .

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

    A great game where Carlisle had lots of chances. Carlisle went one nil up only for Wycombe to come back in the 91st minute.  Aarrgh! Stewards were good and quickly dealt with some fans who ran onto the pitch after the equaliser.

    6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Having parked in the top car park there was around a thirty minute wait before we could leave it. Thankfully Radio 5 live and some sandwiches left in the car passed the time. When leaving the ground we turned right at the first roundabout (we should have gone left for the M4) however we headed for west Wycombe and having spent 10 mins driving through single track country lanes we joined the motorway having hardly seen another car. From memory of my previous visit, getting to the M4 from the ground is a bumper to bumper ordeal, I would recommend the right turn.

    7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A great day out. A decent game of footy but not a great result. Our supporters buses left at six am allowing for traffic, but arrived at 11.30 am as the roads were so clear, they are something not to be relied on and it's a main route into London so be careful and allow extra time you can always visit the local hostelries if you are early.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v AFC Wimbledon
    League Two
    Saturday, September 22nd 2012, 3pm
    Declan Wyatt (AFC Wimbledon fan)

    After a long journey from Wallington, including a familiar car park scene on the M25, we arrived at Adams Park at about 1:30pm for Wycombe Wanderers vs AFC Wimbledon.

    Prior to this match we had lost manager Terry Brown after a poor run of results early in the season, this was (caretaker manager) Simon Basseys first game in charge.

    Getting to the ground was easy enough, a 10-15 minute drive from the M40 into the industrial estate on which Adams Park is located. The ground is located at the far end of the industrial estate. Though there is not adequate parking on the estate itself, the car park at the stadium is of a reasonable size. Some of the 200 or so cars were parked on a hillside beside the ground. I got a match programme (£3) and entered the ground.

    When inside the ground, I visited the toilets, which weren't that clean to be honest! Wycombe were celebrating their 125th anniversary, and had an array of old players and managers on the pitch prior to kick-off. The ground is a typical lower league ground. It is also used for rugby. There was a Grandstand to the left of the away end and a small stand to the right where the teams enter and where the dugouts are. Opposite the away end (which is all seated) is another home stand which is terraced.

    The first half was good for AFC Wimbledon, Sammy Moore scored just after 30 minutes to make it 1-0 at half time to the Dons. During the interval I went to the tea bar where they sold a range of hot food, sweets and drinks. There were no goals during the second half, and in my opinion, the away crowd were louder than the home support which was pretty poor. The game ended 1-0 with a vital three points going back to Surrey.

    Getting out of the ground was easy enough, with more than one route leading back to the M40. The stewards let the car park out first then all the cars on the hill…. It took us about 20 minutes to get out of the industrial estate, by 7pm we were back within the M25.

    To my knowledge there was no trouble at the game or outside and I think both sets of supporters conducted themselves well. All in all it was a great, cheap away day to watch the mighty Dons, and I look forward to visiting Adams Park again next year providing we don't get relegated!

    My Rating: 9.5/10

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Southend United
    League Two
    Saturday, February 23rd 2013, 3pm
    John Spooner (Southend United fan)

    1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground?

    It was my first visit to Adams Park. A visit to a new ground always makes it a bit more of interest.

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

    We travelled from North Wales via M6 M5 M42 and M40 using Satnav and the 180 mile journey was easy. We turned off at Junction 5 of M40 for the A40 as mentioned on this site by a Stockport fan and it was free of traffic jams and well sign posted. We arrived about 1 pm and parked in the top car park at the ground for free.

    3. What you did before the game pub/chippy…. home fans friendly?

    Home fans and stewards were particularly friendly. We sat in the car listening to commentary on Fulham v Stoke eating a pre packed lunch.

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

    The ground can be seen from the car park and the Main Stand is set in front of a wooded hillside.
    The away end is all seated with the home end being a standing area. The main stand to the left is large with a smaller side opposite. The pitch was good too, given that Wasps rugby club share the stadium.

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

    The game was a tense affair with Wycombe taking an early lead but Southend scored two goals in the second half to secure a valuable three points. The atmosphere was good with a drummer in the home end urging the home fans on. The large Southend following ensured a good atmosphere too.
    The refreshment bar was reasonably priced with a good selection hot food and drinks.

    6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    We were delayed about 15 minutes leaving the car park but stewards worked well to ensure easy exit for all. Finally I have to mention the friendliness of all the stewards and staff at Wycombe who all appear to love their work with warm smiles and cheerful greetings. A credit to the club!

    7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A great day out despite freezing cold weather and a long journey, all helped by the result and the genuine friendliness of staff at Wycombe. The best I have come across in many years of attending football league games.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Aston Villa
    Pre-Season Friendly
    Saturday, July 20th 2013, 3pm
    Jack Howley (Aston Villa fan)

    1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

    It was Villa's first English Pre-Season game of the season. Benteke had signed a new contract the day before so I knew that the atmosphere would be fantastic in the Villa end. Also I hadn't been to Adams Park before and was excited about visiting as it was Mike Bassett Football Manager.

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

    There was a mix up at Birmingham Moor Street Railway Station but was soon sorted. The journey to High Wycombe was around one and a half hours. There was supposed to be a bus taking us from the station to the ground but wasn't there when we got off the train so we walked it. The walk was about 40 minutes and i got my directions from my iPhone app.

    3. What you did before the game pub/chippy…. home fans friendly?

    We weren't hungry before the game so we got KFC in the town center on the way back but there was many places to choose from. The majority of people at the game were Villa fans. In fact, a Wycombe fan said that he had never felt like the away team at a home game before.

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

    From the outside the away stand didn't look too special, however they had opened their new club shop on the same day and it looked quite good. Once inside the ground looked very impressive for a League 2 ground and was made better by the fact that you could see the hills behind the stands.

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

    The Villa fans were in good voice all game. Around 10 minutes in, Marvin McCoy crossed the ball in and it went in, putting Wycombe ahead. 15 minutes later Matthew Lowton headed the ball in to equalize. About 5 minutes later, Wycombe went ahead again. In the second half, Ashley Westwood scored a free kick from just outside the penalty box and around 30 Villa fans invaded the pitch. The game finished 2-2. The second half was probably the most boring half of football i'd ever seen. I almost fell asleep whilst standing up.

    6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    It was pretty easy getting away from the ground as I was walking but I didn't notice much traffic on the roads. Trains going to Birmingham were every half hour so it was pretty easy getting a train home.

    7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    I'd say that Adams Park is one of my favorite lower league grounds. It was a great day out and very hot. Would have been made better if we had won or the second half was more exciting.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Mansfield Town
    League Two
    Saturday, August 17th 2013, 3pm
    Jeff Beastall (Mansfield Town fan)

    We went to Adams Park for our first visit since returning to the league with Mansfield Town. It’s been five long years in exile so I took the time out to check out the Football Ground Guide website to refresh myself on what to expect, having been a while since my last visit there.
     
    We arrived really early, just after 12.30pm in fact, and ventured our way to the club bars for a spot of food and the obligatory swift half, only to be told that away fans would have to use a marquee in the grounds. And what a soulless place it was. A long bar down one end and nothing else. No seating and no toilets. No big screens for the first Premiership games of the season, can’t remember who was playing. Cold and draughty. Someone had his old dad with him and wasn’t relishing the idea of him having nowhere to sit for two hours. I guess in the end they relented and let them into the club house. It’s not as if an 80 year old man was going to smash the place up was it?
     
    Following the advice in the Football Ground Guide, we made the 15 minute walk down to the Hourglass pub. We were made very welcome there, nice rolls on offer for a quid, the range of beers were adequate and a very friendly Staffordshire terrier in a Wycombe Wanderers shirt! Spent an hour in there. Bearing in mind a large sign at the Wycombe Wanderers marquee said last orders was 2.45, once we’d partook of the ambience, we headed back to the ground. By now it was raining and in the shelter of the virtually empty marquee, there was at most 10 people in and it looked like the small army of bar staff had been sent home.   
     
    Not the friendly welcome we’d expected; even the steward I spoke to agreed that the marquee idea hadn’t quite gone to plan. Perhaps on a day when local rivals are in town and it’s a really sunny day, then yes, the marquee would have been a better proposition. Total away attendance on the day was 250 or so and from that you can only guess how many, or mores to the point, how few actually used the facility.
     
    That said, the rest of the information was spot on and as for the match, we grabbed a late winner to take our first 3 pointer since our return to the league. Just hope that if the club want my money, they should rethink the tent idea through in time for next year!

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Fulham
    League Cup 1st Round
    Tuesday 11th August 2015, 7.45pm
    Fave Howells (Fulham fan)

    Why you were looking forward to going to Adams Park?

    Another stadium off the list, and a bonus to watch a lower-league team whilst also watching Fulham (lets hope that statement still holds true in a few years time!)

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

    Journey was a bit rushed due to it being an evening game. It basically took (admittedly stressful) 2 hours on various public transport from central London to sitting on the seat in the stadium, so manageable for an away game, but only just. Tube, train and bus were efficient. Club/Arriva do a matchday bus from Wycombe Railway Station, £3 for a return (adult) which is a good service, not going to get much better than that. Bus takes about half an hour to get from the station to Adams Park. Although the stadium is annoyingly a little way out of High Wycombe, can be no real complaints here.

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

    Unfortunately, not much time before the game to go to the pub. A shame, cause it did look nice around there and I had read some good reviews of local pubs.

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

    The away end seems to be one of the better stands in the stadium. Ground is set by a forested hill, which makes a nice backdrop. The visiting supporters stand faces west, so if its an evening game and the game is woeful, might be in luck for a cracking sunset…

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

    Game was pretty mediocre, one moment of actual skill settled it. Fulham ended up winning 1 – 0, but neither team will be remembering it for too long.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Bit of traffic as there isn't exactly a plethora of ways out. But as with attendance of 4,000 it does sort itself out pretty quick. The bus back was relatively empty, which is always a novelty.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    It's a nice enough stadium/place. If its a visit towards the 92, then I'd be tempted to go for a weekend match and actually enjoy the location as it is really pretty around there. For an evening game – unless you're local – it is pretty rushed and you don't get to see the best parts of doing it. Overall, I would go again, but next time on a Saturday.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Carlisle United
    Football League Two
    Saturday October 24th 2015, 3pm
    Dave Nicholson (Carlisle United)

    Why were you looking forward to visiting Adams Park?    

    Adams Park was to be a new ground to visit for me.

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

    straightforward as we were travelling on the supporters club coach, laid on by the Club.

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

    We were dropped off at the Hourglass pub which is the last one before you reach Adams Park. It was fairly quiet when we arrived before noon, but soon filled up nearer to kick-off. Nice little pub although a bit scruffy, The folk were friendly enough though.

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

    Its a good 15 min walk from the pub to the ground. But it is straightforward as there is only one road in, as it is in an industrial area with businesses located on either side of the approach road. The away end is a decent size but there is no bar and only one food outlet that I could see, There is a big stand to the left with a very small Main Stand opposite. The home end behind the other goal is small with terracing, Adams Park The ground is at the very end of a country estate as all you can see around it is trees.

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

    I had a flag to display and the young steward I asked first was a bit unsure with what to tell me,  He was looking frantically for a supervisor who then appeared – she was helpful and told me where I could hang the flag. Food was okay (Burger & chips), only one toilet block as I could see and there were long queues at half time. Although Carlisle were reduced to 10 men midway through the first half we battled well and took the lead early in the second. Wycombe battered us for the rest of the half which led to a 89th min equalizer. We probably would have took a point before the game anyway.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    One road in and one road out so even though the attendance was only around 3,500 the traffic after the game was rather busy. Once we made it onto the main road it was fine.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    The locals we met were friendly,  plus another new ground for me in a season of mostly southern based teams in League Two.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Bristol Rovers
    Football League Two
    Saturday 27th February 2016, 3pm
    Thomas Inglis (Neutral fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    This was English ground Number 63 for me.

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

    My journey starts by getting a Megabus from Dundee on the Friday night before the game to London, arriving Saturday morning 6.40am. I then got a train to Wycombe at 8.10am after a spot of breakfast. I got the general directions from this website site and had all day to get there, but still a bit of a hike, seems miles from the town centre.

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

    Getting to Wycombe at 9am allowed me a chance to have a look around the town, markets, shopping malls, church, interesting buildings that took my fancy. After all that culture, time for a pint. I headed along West Wycombe Road and came to the first pub the 'Bird in Hand' just in time for early West Ham game on TV. After first pint, 3 bus loads of Bristol fans came in. I had a chat with a few of them and they all seemed in a boisterous, confident mood. I was told there were strippers in the next door pub (the White Horse) but this was full of even more Bristol fans – gave it a miss. I still hadn't seen a Wycombe fan and this didn't change when I got to next pub 'The 'Hourglass' which had been given over solely to away fans.

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

    I eventually got to Adams Park, had a look in club shop then to the Club bar at the ground. I took the opportunity to stand at a game and joined the home fans on the terrace behind the goal. The away end behind the opposite goal was full of aforementioned hordes of Bristol fans. The Main Stand was to my right and looked an impressive structure. All in all a nice wee stadium in a quaint country setting.

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

    There was plenty singing from both sets of fans throughout the game. In my end though there were a couple of drummers that started off the majority of the Wycombe fans repertoire, and created a great atmosphere. The game itself had a few chances for both teams, but nothing really clear cut. As it wore on I was resigning myself to a nil – nil then Wycombe got a free kick in the 85th minute. The ball was swung into the box and O'Nien met it with a wonderful 10 yard header, cue great scenes of jubilation all around me. I was swept into the celebrations and for about 12 seconds I felt like a Wycombe fan (it's great being on the terraces!).

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    No problem getting away from ground apart from the actual distance to get back to town centre. I stopped into 'White Horse' to watch a bit of tea time game – West Brom 3 nil up.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A fine day out, another ground ticked off. Having been to every Scottish ground these trips give me something different to look forward to and sometimes it is actually cheaper to travel this distance than to go and watch my own team (Dundee United) away.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Stevenage
    Football League Two
    Saturday 12th March 2016, 3pm
    James Walker (Stevenage fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    Adams Park Entrance SignI was looking forward to this away day because of the fact of how relatively local it is for us. Plus Stevenage had never lost at Adams Park before, in our previous three visits. However our awful form (with only two away wins) as well as not scoring in any of our last three games before this one, made me a little concerned against a team who terrorised us in this same fixture just over a year ago.

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

    Me and my Father drove for this one and the journey was an easy trip around the M25 and M40 to Wycombe. The journey itself took about 1 hour 15 minutes due to a slight hold-up on the M25. We parked in the same place as last season which is a CEF car park for £5. There are a lot of small businesses on the road that lead up to the stadium and all of the car parks are open on matchdays for about £5 each. There is also one big car park at Adams Park itself but I'd imagine it would take a long time to get out afterwards.

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

    The first thing was to get a programme (£3.00) and a Wycombe badge (£1.50) from the club shop. Next to the club shop outside, is a badge seller called Terry (who also does badges at AFC Wimbledon home games). He offers a large collection of badges from all clubs in England as well as Wycombe Wanderers matchday badges, priced at £3 each. There also copies of 'Groundtastic' on sale for £5 from him as well. Wycombe Wanderers also have an 'Away Fans Village' just outside the club shop which includes a big bar marquee (similar to the one at Yeovil) selling a wide range of beers and soft drinks as well as a few tables. There is a mobile truck next to this selling a range of pies, burgers, hot dogs and other food.

    The Away End

    Away End

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

    Adams Park is a very nice tidy little stadium and I've always enjoyed my trips here. The away end is a good sized all seater stand that can generate a good noise and offers excellent views of the action. There is a big disabled section at the front of the stand to the left of the goal and offers for up to 8 wheelchairs and carers. Drums are allowed in to the away end. The stand behind the opposite goal is the only terrace, and is clearly the singing section as all of the home noise seemed to come from this stand. The stand to our left is a big double-tiered stand called the 'Frank Adams Stand' and the stand to our right is a small single-tiered all seater stand, and this stand is where the tunnel is.

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

    Corner Flag KioskThe game itself was poor from our point of view with Wycombe racking up an impressive but alarming 7 corners in the first 10 minutes. The rest of the first half carried on like this with Wycombe working Jamie Jones in our goal very well without scoring. The only goal game on 70 minutes when their pressure finally paid off to give Wycombe a deserved win. The food and drink at Adams Park is purchased the 'Corner Flag Kiosk' which is situated (as the name suggests) next to the corner flag and sells Chicken Balti/Steak & Ale/Chicken & Mushroom pies for £3 each, whilst chips cost £2.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Getting away was very easy, as all we had to do was cross the car park outside the away end and turn right, then walk down the hill to the car park that we parked in earlier. The local traffic was a little slow but still moving, and we were back on the M40 within about 35 minutes of the final whistle, getting home just after 6pm.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    Overall this wasn't the best away day, but I've certainly seen far worse on my travels this season. Thankfully this was only a narrow loss with a good atmosphere and a short drive home. I still enjoyed the day to a degree and have always enjoyed trips to Adams park. If we manage to beat the drop this season then this will certainly be a ground I'll go back to next season.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Colchester United
    Football League Two
    Saturday 27th August 2016, 3pm
    Piers Palmer (Colchester United fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    I was going to be moving to Australia in September so I wanted to go to as many games in as I could before I had to settle for Australian..soccer. Also Colchester and Wycombe have had an old, but slowly fading rivalry and since I hadn't been to Adams Park, I thought it'd be a good game and atmosphere.

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

    I followed the directions from the Football Ground Guide website. From Essex it was simply a case of going along the A12 then across the M25 and then onto the M40. Follow signs for the ground once you're off the slip road heading into town. Easy. Parking was fine, we just chose one of the many industrial estate car parks along the road leading to Adams Park.

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

    We tried to go into the big beer tent they had set up outside the ground just for away fans but they'd run out of food and stopped serving at 2.30pm which is just about when we turned up. So we decided to go to the burger van just outside the ground. Got a few side glances from the home fans (as it was a 'derby') but we felt comfortable enough.

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

    The Adams Park ground looked fine from the outside. The away stand is great. Good size, comfortable leg space and decent views. Personally, Wycombe has become one of my favourite lower league grounds. It's terrifically varied. The huge two tired stand completely contrasts the tiny Main Stand and the home end terrace behind the goal just caps the whole place off brilliantly.

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

    The stewards were very friendly. They were very happy to make jokes and have a laugh with fans. Made pat downs and bag searches on entry (probably due to it being a 'derby') a much nicer experience. The ground was strangely empty considering it's posted as one of the biggest games on the Wycombe calendar. The home end terrace tried drumming up some atmosphere but they were generally very quiet and flat. Having said that the Colchester fans were so loud I barely heard the Chairboys fans. We really made some noise!

    The first half was really just a game of head tennis with few chances. Colchester road their luck a bit defensively and let Wycombe have a few more openings than they deserved. But generally the U's dominated. We didn't tipple in the half time delights Wycombe offered but it seemed adequate. There is a food and drink outlet to the right hand side of the stadium. The toilets are near there too. They're adequate and in good condition. Second half saw Col U absolutely dominate. Two goals (Porter 63mins and Szmodics 82mins) were well deserved. The second one was a screamer. Some fans 'over-celebrated' and spilled onto the pitch but the stewards merely pushed them back. They weren't forceful or ejected anyone. They also didn't moan at fans for standing compared to many other grounds stewards that seem to. Colchester fans dominated in the stands as much as Col U did on the pitch. It was great to make a real noise!

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Getting out of the ground takes a bit of patience. It's only one road out and everyone is heading in the same direction. However, one of the industrial roads has a shortcut to the M40 which they signposted and it cut a lot of our time getting out of the ground. Very helpful!

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A fantastic day out. It's definitely one of my favourite away days (not just because of the result!). Wycombe is definitely one I'd come back to if not because of the ground but because of all the red kite birds floating around the town and stadium. (I must admit I watched the sky a bit too much rather than the match..). Great location, easy to get to, a ground with lots of character, friendly stewards, terrific result and a chance to do a bit of bird watching. What more could you want! One to remember while I'm supporting the U's from the other side of the world.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Morecambe
    Football League Two
    Saturday 12th November 2016, 3pm
    Ian Bell (Neutral fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    Living in and working near Reading and as my team Birmingham City were not playing during the international break and with the girlfriend out with her mates, I thought me and my mates could go and watch some football and Wycombe wasn't a bad shout.

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

    Well we started of in Reading town centre a good breakfast as do and took the bus from Reading to Wycombe took about 40 minutes. Once in the town centre found a Wetherspoons outlet near by the shopping centre and Sainsburys, from there found Yates which was showing the football and later other sports so had a drink and something to eat there. We then got a bus from the main bus station which took us to the Hourglass pub. From there its about 15 minute walking time to Adams Park.

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

    There was a bar called Scores at the ground so we popped in there not busy but able to get a drink, one home fan said Wycombe fans go into their Vere Suite a larger bar but i think this home fans only, but he did mention depending on the away team they have large tent for away fans to get a beer and something to eat. Wycombe fans were friendly.

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

    Adams Park is a fantastic ground for League Two football, comprising three sides of seating and one end terrace. We decided to sit in the upper tier of the Woodlands Stand, where we enjoyed a fantastic view of the pitch. Food was alright burgers, hot dogs, chips.

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

    Wycombe just outplayed Morecambe and deserved to win 2-0 despite it being 0-0 at half time. Generally a good game.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    We got the bus back to the town centre, which took around 20 minutes. We then went to the White Horse Pub also went to The Bird in Hand. Before the bus back to Reading which we got back around 8.30pm.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    Me and four lads whom love football, just went to a nearby game for a few beers and a good day out. Wycombe didn't disappoint!

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Portsmouth
    Football League Two
    Saturday 4th February 2017, 3pm
    Dan Frostick (Portsmouth fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    Wycombe is a local ground for any Pompey fan as it's only 90 minutes away. Plus I wanted to go and see the local area as my Grandad who would have been 100 this year grew up in Wycombe.

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

    I took the A3, M25 & M40 route to Adams Park and found the ground to be very well signposted. I parked on the nearby industrial estate costing £4 and arrived around 11:30am.

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

    My dad, my friend Aaron and myself walked up to Adams Park to have a preview of the ground in the home section. The home supporters are extremely friendly walking around the ground and more than happy to recommend any where to drink, so we headed to the Hourglass which is a well priced pub that also does hot food.

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

    Adams Park is very tidy and cut into the Buckinghamshire forest, which is quite picturesque. The stewards were very friendly and were happy to direct you towards your seat. I was expecting there to be more Wycombe fans as both sides were in the top seven in the league. Knowing the large numbers of Portsmouth fans who travel to away games, maybe could have given some more tickets to Pompey supporters for the small side stand.

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

    I had a pie inside the ground which cost £3 which I thought was reasonable. The atmosphere was very good both sets of supporters getting behind their side. Wycombe ended up winning 1-0 the goal took a defection off Matt Clark, despite Pompey having the better of the second half couldn't find a way past the Wycombe defence.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    As there is only one way out we crawled back into the M40 & hit the motorway around 6pm. Traffic was then fairly quiet getting back and I  was home just after 8pm.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A very good afternoon at Adams Park and I would highly recommend anyone to visiting Wycombe for a very friendly family atmosphere.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Cambridge United
    Football League 2
    Saturday 6th May 2017, 5.30pm
    Trevor Applegate (Cambridge United fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    As it was the last game of the season me and the boys always travel to where ever it was, today was Wycombe's turn. We have been to Adams Park before and enjoyed it so looked forward to the return journey! The other plus side was both teams needed to win to get into the play-offs so was going to be an interesting atmosphere.

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

    Getting there was easy as it was a late kick, meaning the roads were easy going and we were in no rush to get there. We wanted to eat a meal before getting to the ground so decided to stop at a pub called " The Squirrel Pub" great food!! Then drove the remainder of the journey to Adams Park. Paid £5 for parking just before the ground.

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

    Well after stopping off for food and getting to the ground, there was a great smelling BBQ and beer tent going on with carnival music outside, with all the fans mingling together. Even the stewards were friendly and having a laugh.

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

    Adams Park is a good modern day stadium. As I've been here before for me it looked smaller than the last time.. but this time we sold out the away section!  A nice large away stand and a humongous Main Stand. I wouldn't say no to that back at Cambridge.

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

    From a Cambridge look on the match… The fans, Beach balls and the Barbeque all turned up.. even the stewards! But alas not the players. But it was the last game of the season and all the Cambridge supporters weren't going to be put off just because we lost, we sung. we bounced; "It will be next season, is our season!."

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Coming out of the ground we decided to go back to the pub we had lunch at to wait out the traffic and reflected on the match. There we meet two Wycombe fans doing the same thing. We had a chin wag and headed home.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    Was a great day out at Adams Park and I would do it again.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Lincoln City
    Football League Two
    Saturday 5th August 2017, 3pm
    Matthew McCaughan (Lincoln City fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    It was the opening match of the season and Lincoln City's first on returning to the Football League. Plus with three months without football over the summer, I was really excited to be going to this one.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    We came on the supporters bus, which arrived at Adams Park at 1.30pm, so had no trouble getting to the ground at that time. I noticed that Adams Park is well sign posted around the area.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    There was a large beer tent and a barbeque outside the ground , which helped make it a good atmosphere. We had no problems with the Wycombe fans.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    Adams Park is located on an industrial estate out of town. From the outside, it looks a lot bigger than it actually is.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    The match ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw. The atmosphere wasn't the greatest, not helped by the majority of the Wycombe fans being in the opposite end of the ground. Clean toilets, and decent food and beer.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    Being at the end of an industrial estate, there is only one way in and out. We got moving at about 5.30pm. So it is probably worth parking a 10/15 minute walk away to get away quicker.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
    It was an enjoyable day out at Adams Park, I would definitely return there.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Preston North End
    FA Cup Third Round
    Saturday 6th January 2018, 3pm
    Martin Atherton (Preston North End fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    I haven’t been to Adams Park for a few years and never for an FA Cup match. Tickets were cheap as well, so a group of us travelled down together.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    Remarkably smooth. Four motorways each way on a 400-mile round trip and not one holdup was like stepping back 40 years. Having been before, I knew about the parking issue so we left the car about half a mile away and walked up to Adams Park. We also went through West Wycombe simply because it is a more scenic route.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    We went into one of the lounges in the outside of the Main Stand and mixed with the locals. It was a pleasure to be treated civilly by fans and stewards alike and to have a pleasant chat about the Chairboys with our hosts.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    The ground has changed little since my last visit, the main one being the away End is now seated. Good view of the pitch and it was a pleasant change to look outside the ground and see nothing but trees and fields. The kite circling the ground throughout the game (bird rather than on a string!) was a novel sight as well.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    A potentially tricky cup tie was made less tense by Josh Harrop’s sublime free kick less than 90 seconds in. A thoroughly professional performance from North End and Wanderers at least had a brief glimmer of hope when they equalised just before half time. A convincing 5-1 win though.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    We hung around for a while outside the ground talking to friends then walked ten minutes back to the car and home just after 9.00 pm after an equally stress free journey.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    One of the most enjoyable away games I have been to in years in terms of the whole experience, not just the result. A good day out at a very welcoming club. A special mention also for the reception given for ex-Preston player Gareth Ainsworth received from the North End fans and which he reciprocated. We brought him up well.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Blackpool
    League One
    Saturday 4th August 2018, 3pm
    Mark Steele (Neutral)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    It had been two or three years since my last visit. Adams Park is a great venue for watching football and the fans are always friendly. Adams Park is a good ground to bring friends or family to with no concerns over safety.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    Really easy. I ignored my Sat Nav trying to send me some utterly stupid route and followed the signs after exiting the M40 down Lane End Road. Parking at Adams Park used to be okay but last time I went they had started this ridiculous policy of stopping the cars out of the pay-on-the-day car park at the top of the slope every time a car wanted to leave the lower car park where they have presumably paid more. This can easily add an hour to your departure time from the stadium. As a result, I and a number of other people parked on the industrial estate on the way to the Stadium. This costs the same or less as parking at the stadium and you get out quicker after the game because the cars coming out of Adams Park have to get past you. It’s a shame Wycombe cannot sort their parking out as they are losing money with the current arrangements from people staying away from their car park.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    Being a little later than I had planned, we went straight through the turnstiles into the concourse behind the Frank Adams Stand. Everyone at the ground was very friendly and happy to chat.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    All of the stands at Adams Park look very comfortable and seem to offer a good view. I have been in all of them at some time or other and have never had any problems.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    The game was not a great one. Defences were better than attacks on the day and no-one ever looked likely to score. 0-0 was fair. The pies at the stadium were nice although very hot. Definitely get a fork if you have one. The cheeseburgers were stone cold even before the game – they weren’t good last time I went either but even worse this time around. Avoid the burgers!
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    If you want to escape Adams Park quickly you need to park in the industrial estate on the right-hand side (on your way in) so that you can turn left to exit afterwards. Otherwise, your choices are leaving a few minutes early or stay at the ground for a drink or an hour after the game. Do none of these things and you'll just be sat in queuing traffic for an hour.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    A very enjoyable day out. Adams Park is well worth a visit.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Norwich City
    League Cup 3rd Round
    Tuesday 25th September 2018, 7.45pm
    Tim Scales (Norwich City)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    I had never been to Adams Park before and was hoping I would see Norwich City progress to the fourth round of the EFL Cup. We were on a good run of form coming into the game and our Manager Daniel Farke takes Cup games seriously (which is very refreshing), so I was fairly confident of a Norwich win.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    At the second attempt (after we had got to Thetford and my mate had realised that he'd forgotten his ticket), it was a relatively stress-free 2 and a half hour drive down from Wymondham (10 miles south of Norwich) down the A11, then the A505, westbound on the M25 and then down the M40 for about 15 miles. We parked in the Eden Shopping Centre in the town centre, which cost £4 (although this would cost more for a Saturday 3pm kick-off). It was a bit of a walk to Adams Park (especially after a bit of a detour) but it was nonetheless easy to find.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    We visited several pubs before (and after) the game, most notably The Phoenix which is about two minutes' walk from where we parked, which has a good range of beers, a pool table and a decent-sized beer garden. The barman there directed us to The Squirrel pub as a place to drink before the game which was not as near to the ground as he had indicated although a nice place to have a beer and again it had a good selection on offer. There was a decent choice of chain restaurants in the town centre – we chose Pizza Express. The home fans were very friendly both before and after the game and were more than willing to have a chat. We had no problem in getting into any pub that we visited, either.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    The away end itself is decent-sized with a good view of the action. As for the rest of the ground, Adams Park is a typical League One stadium but it has a fair amount of character, especially with the tiny Main Stand to the right of the away end. The two-tiered stand to the left of the away end is genuinely impressive, while the terrace behind the goal opposite houses the loudest section of Wycombe's support.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    The game was a real ding-dong affair with Norwich playing some very good football at times and were 2-0 up inside 15 minutes thanks to two Jordan Rhodes strikes: the first bundled home from two yards; the second a sumptuous right-footed finish into the top corner. To their credit, Wycombe never lied down and Paris Cowan-Hall pulled one back for the hosts with a scrappy finish from a corner. Tom Trybull re-established City's two goal lead from a corner of their own and Jordan Rhodes appeared to have completed his hat-trick before half time but the referee ruled it out for reasons unknown to man nor beast! 
     
    Rhodes did get his hat-trick after the restart, turning home Emi Buendia's cross but Norwich then hit the self-destruct button, giving away a soft penalty to give Wycombe a glimmer of hope. Sam Saunders converted from the spot and an untidy finish after a bit of penalty area pinball led to a very nervy final 15 minutes for Norwich. We luckily held out despite the hosts throwing everything they had and Adebayo Akinfenwa at us, but Wycombe deserved a lot of praise for the way they stuck at it and never let the scoreline faze them. 
     
    In terms of atmosphere, Wycombe's home fans were decent and were well behind their team all the way through the ninety minutes although it's always a shame when the most vocal home fans are miles away from the away support. It was slightly disappointing that there were only 2500 Wycombe fans at the game but Norwich at home is possibly the worst draw they could have asked for from their perspective. I did not buy anything in the ground but my mates tried to buy a pint at half time only to find out that they were not serving alcohol inside the away end – whether this is the case for every game, I am not sure.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    With only one exit to the away end, it did take a little while for Norwich's 1500-strong following to leave Adams Park after the final whistle. Having parked in the town centre, which is about a half-hour walk away from the ground itself, getting out of Wycombe proved no problem with virtually no traffic on the road. After a couple of pints (of Pepsi for me) after the game, we hit the road and had a smooth journey home.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    This was a very enjoyable day and it's always good to see a highly entertaining game of football at a nice ground, even if it was a bit nail-biting at the end. A good day out at a very welcoming town and at £10 a ticket, the game was very reasonably priced.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Barnsley
    League 1
    Saturday 8th December 2018, 3pm
    David Crossfield (Barnsley)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    It was my first ever visit to Wycombe. I am trying to visit a few new grounds every season.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    I travelled by train to Kings Cross and then by tube to Marylebone to get the train to High Wycombe. I got the Football Special bus from the station which dropped me outside the ground. After the game the bus parked a good five minutes walk away on the main road. The traffic back into High Wycombe was heavy, but I arrived back at the railway station at 5.30 pm, in good time for the next train back to London Marylebone.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    I had a big breakfast before catching the train so I didn't eat before or at the match. I went into the Bootleggers pub just outside High Wycombe station. Ten real ales on tap and a decent place. Just a couple of home fans at the bar. I then had a walk to the Mad Squirrel pub on Church Street. It was fairly quiet and I wasn't keen on their own beers.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    Adams Park is a nice tidy ground in a wooded valley at the end of an industrial area. The view for away fans behind the goal is good.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    The stewards were really chatty. The atmosphere on the away end was pretty subdued after the initial chanting. Barnsley played poorly and created little despite 59% possession. Once Wycombe scored in the 59th minute it was game over. They defended well and stopped Barnsley playing. The home support was noisy, supported by drums.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    No problem. A walk back to the main road to catch the supporters bus.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    Apart from the result, it was a good day out.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Coventry City
    League One
    Tuesday 1st January 2019, 3pm
    Lee Bradbury (Coventry City)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    On the back of two consecutive home wins in the Christmas week, the chance to see us do the double over the Chairboys in their own backyard was too tantalising to pass up, and would help see in the new year!
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    Heading south through/from Coventry on the A46 before joining the M40 for the rest of the journey; everything went really well. The added benefit of it being the New Year bank holiday probably helped keep traffic low. Finding Adams Park was very easy once you get onto the right roads, and is signposted reasonably well. Parking is available throughout the industrial estate and the road leading up to the ground, however, we decided to try our luck inside the gate. Due to a lack of pre-booked parking, we had to pay £5 to park but were situated on a hill immediately adjacent to the ground, meaning no walking was involved.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    The few home fans we spoke to seemed friendly enough; some even offering to help escort my wheelchair-bound Dad through the car park. There was a small area next to the ground/car park entrance, fenced off for fans of both teams to mingle, with a tent offering food and drink. As the weather was dry and mild there was a nice relaxed atmosphere around the ground, as fans mixed and chatted.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    Adams Park itself is set in quite idyllic surroundings for the most part. Surrounded by woodland and a large rolling hillside, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that you just drove through an (albeit small) industrial estate to arrive here. Adams Park sees away fans situated in their own stand, behind the goal. Incidentally, this is the second-largest stand in the ground. The stand itself is fairly decent for a ground of it's size and offers good views. Opposite is a much smaller, terraced stand, and to the right of the away end is the main stand. The other side sees Adams Park's largest and most impressive stand. A two-tiered affair, this stand also sandwiches in a row of corporate boxes. With no capacity in any of the ground's corner areas, it offers up the feel of a classic small English football ground, albeit one that is somewhat well looked-after.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    After a slow start, the Sky Blues started to find their feet and eventually were awarded a penalty, which Conor Chaplin dutifully converted. We controlled the rest of the game, and grabbed a second, through Jonson Clarke-Harris' first touch after coming on from the bench. A comfortable 2-0 away win for Coventry City. While our away support was in typically fine vocal fettle, it's disappointing that the same can't be said of our hosts. Perhaps underwhelmed by the lack of vibrant attacking play from the home side, Wycombe's supporters were for the most part silent, allowing our lot to continually tease them on that fact (from about 20 minutes in, we followed up the majority of our chants with a large shushing noise, so as to not disturb our fellow library attendees). A pre-game cheeseburger from the small yet efficient food and drink stall went down quite well and was a fair price by football ground standards. Special mention must go to all of the car park attendants and stewards, who made both myself and especially my Dad feel very much welcome at the ground. As we sat in the disabled section, it was nice to have the stewards offer my Dad, and other disabled visitors, as much of their services as they could provide – even going as far to offer blankets out as the temperature dropped in the second half should we have needed them, and to ask if we wanted anything from the food stand!
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    We had been advised by several of the ground staff that getting away from the ground involves the non-driving fans being allowed exit from the ground first before any vehicles can be allowed out, thus causing a large queue. As we had the game sewn up nicely, and we saw a good seven minutes of stoppage time go up on the fourth official's board, we decided, begrudgingly, to make our way out early. This made things a lot easier. The car park attendants did their best to offer their assistance in loading my Dad's wheelchair into the car, and we just managed to pull off as the final whistle blew. Despite a few others leaving early, we managed to get away with ease, and we soon cruised back to Coventry.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    A pleasant, easygoing experience, topped off with a solid win for the Sky Blues! Wonderful stewarding saw rave reviews from the old man on the drive home and gave me peace of mind throughout our visit. All in all, an enjoyable away day supporting the not-always-enjoyable Sky Blues
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Doncaster Rovers
    League 1
    Saturday 12th January 2019, 3pm
    Paul Shillito (Doncaster Rovers)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    As a Doncaster Rovers fan I am working my way through the 92 league grounds and am currently two thirds in (with Donny playing so might have to wait a while for some!) I was visiting alone and looking forward to an activity to take my mind off a busy first full week back at work after Christmas. Doncaster had been in very good form, beating Rochdale 5-0 at home on New Years Day and Preston North End in the FA Cup so I was looking forward to a good and quality game of football.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    I live in the Midlands currently so an easy two hour drive M42/M40 and then to the ground. Adams Park is well signposted once you are off the motorway. There were industrial units that offered parking near the ground for £4/£5. I normally try and find a side street for free but didn't know the area well enough to do this on this occasion.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    I found the nearest geocache (another hobby of mine) which took in good views of the ground. Being in the Chilterns and at the end of a dead end of an industrial estate with raised hillsides on three sides out of four, you do feel like you are in the middle of nowhere rather than 30-40 odd miles from the middle of London which is nice! I also had a (very nice and fresh tasting) pint of Theakstons in the club bar. The home fans came across as 'well behaved.' and I had no issues with them.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    The ground is an impressive stadium well sited in the valley of several hillsides. The stands do vary in height considerably. The away end was bigger than I was expecting (as was the stadium.) It was nice to see terracing at one end. However, the gap between away and home end fans is larger than average which I feel discourages some of the 'chant banter' of a game. The floodlighting looked barely adequate and I feel needs improvement.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    The first half was slightly flat. Doncaster turned on the style and quality to lead 2-0 in the second half and the already buoyant atmosphere of the away end went up a level. As is often the way, we did far more chanting than the home fans, however, they certainly found their voice when they staged an unbelievable comeback to win 3-2 from 0-2. Needless to say, the atmosphere changed from ecstatic and almost mocking Wycombe (which I didn't join in with as I feel that is unfair) to disbelief and a bit of silliness from a few of our younger fans at the end.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    Far worse than average to be honest, one road out and a 20 minute wait for pedestrians to clear before you could even move! Yellow signs also directed me the long way eight miles or so of country roads) back to the motorway before disappearing at crucial points in villages leading me to rely on my iPhone for directions.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    Despite the result and one of the most drawn out getting away after experiences of my football supporting life the stadium and game was fantastic escapism and I have ticked another of the 92 off!
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Bradford City
    League One
    Saturday 2nd February 2019, 3pm
    David Keegan (Bradford City)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    My first ever visit to Adams Park making ground number 80 of the current 92 I’ve been too.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    After breakfast in the Toby carvery in Bradford, it was an uneventful three-hour drive to Wycombe. Arrived at 12.20 at the Hour Glass pub and parked in the pub car park.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    Stayed in the Hour Glass pub. It was a nice friendly place and watched most of the Tottenham v Newcastle game in there on tv, before taking the 20 minutes walk to the ground. It had two cask ales on including Doombar (which I dislike) and the another which I can't remember the name of, but it was a decent pint.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    Adams Park is a tidy ground, with a good view from the away end. Not a bad ground for a fairly modern one, unlike some soulless new grounds that all look the same.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    A poor game, which had 0-0 written all over it. I hardly heard the Wycombe fans all game, it was like a library at times. The stewards were very friendly so no problems there. I bought a chicken balti pie that was overcooked as the pastry had gone hard. Obliviously it had been in the oven far too long.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    I left the car in the pub car park after reading comments on here about the club car parking and glad we did. Left the pub car park at 5.15pm and then plain sailing back home for 8pm.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    A decent day out and another ground ticked off the list. I enjoyed watching Norwich City tear Leeds apart in the late televised kick off on my iPad on the way home.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Portsmouth
    League 1
    Saturday 6th April 2019, 3pm
    Michael G (Portsmouth)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    I was looking forward to visiting Adams Park as I've not been there before.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    The journey was very easy from Portsmouth by car. Paid parking facilities around the ground are available but we opted to park a couple of miles away and walk to the ground.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    Before the game we were going to find a pub and have a few pints, however, there is literally nothing around the ground, no pubs or food places! So we walked to the ground and had a few drinks in the away marquee which was a complete dive and was almost falling down. It also only served single bottled lager or pints of bitter! Strange. The home fans seemed friendly enough although didn't really interact as there was a big police presence.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    I didn't have high hopes for the stadium on the walk up to the ground as you walk down a long industrial estate road which was that pleasant. Actually seeing the ground from the outside it looks small and run down.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    The stewards at Adams Park were laid back with no issues from them. The facilities at Adams park are limited for away fans and the toilets are poor and need to be sorted out. The atmosphere itself was very decent from the Portsmouth faithful as we sold our allocation (like always) and the opposite stand which houses the Wycombe fans generated a fair bit of noise.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    Getting out of the ground is like pulling teeth! It is not very well managed and takes forever.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    Not a ground I will be rushing back to. Mind you coming away with three points is never a bad feeling as we won 3-2.
  • Wycombe Wanderers v Charlton Athletic
    League One
    Tuesday 9th April 2019, 7.45pm
    James Butler (Charlton Athletic)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?

    We were on a great run losing only once in 2019 and conceding only 8 goals in that time with none in the last three matches. A new ground with a bit of extra banter as one of my work colleges is a season ticket holder at Wycombe.

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

    I left work in south east London at 4.30 and arrived at Adams Park 1 hour and 45 minutes later. The M25 was behaving well for once. I followed the Adams Park brown football signs once off the M40. Adams Park is at the end of a dead end. This road is a long drag of industrial units most of whom offer parking at £5. However, after the game, you may well be blocked in so not good if you are planning a fast getaway. The closer to the ground that you park along this road the longer it will take to get away after. The Club car park although well appointed, is clearly the worst option if you want a quick get way, if time is no issue then it's a good choice.

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

    We walked up to the ground in the pleasant early evening spring sunshine. Outside the ground there is an excellent beer tent and BBQ arrangement which creates a very friendly atmosphere with both sets of fans mixing well. Easily the friendliest atmosphere I have ever encountered at football almost akin to a Rugby atmosphere.

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

    I loved the ground. It really nestles in a valley surrounded on three sides by basically countryside. Yes, the ground is small, but more than big enough for Wycombe's historical needs. Even if they did do a Bournemouth and get up to the Premier League a similar sized ground works for them, so why not for Wycombe. The away end is basic, but of reasonable size, with fairly basic facilities. The Frank Adams Stand to the left is a great looking stand. The other two sides whilst small, and in the case of the home end terracing, they seem to afford a good view. A great external view of the ground can be had from the very top of the car park.

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

    The game itself was not the best. Wycombe were in a bit of bother dropping fast toward the relegation zone, we were pushing for the play offs, automatic not quite out of the question. A pretty even and a dull first half was just shaded by Charlton due to a goal from skipper Jason Pearce. The highlight of the half for me were the two buzzards circling above the ground. 

    In the second half, Wycombe gave it a real go, whilst we defended well we had Phillips, in goal, and the post to thank on two or three occasions. The stewards were great and friendly. The facilities very basic, but adequate. The Charlton fans kept up a pretty good atmosphere throughout, the home fans did their bit, especially in the second half. Yes, it was not a classic, but it was a good hard game of football.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    We celebrated for quite a while after the final whistle and did not get back to the car for ten minutes. We were blocked in and it took a while to get off the parking lot. Despite all that, we joined the M40 heading south by 10pm and I was home in North Kent by 11.40.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A win is a win so from that perspective a great evening out. That aside it was an enjoyable visit to Adams Park and one I would love to go on a Saturday. This is a family day out and would be a great venue to take the kids if you are planning their all-important first away day.

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Reading
    League Cup 1st Round
    Tuesday 13th August 2019, 7.45pm
    Alex Champion (Reading)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    Wycombe are a local club who I’ve never seen Reading play before in a competitive game until now. It was the first time we had played Wycombe in a competitive game since 2002.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    The train journey for me was pretty straight forward going via London Marleybone to get to High Wycombe. The only problem was the bus didn’t arrive at 6:50 like it said on this website (Ed – This has been checked again and that is the scheduled time according to the Wycombe Wanderers website). So I had to get a taxi to the stadium.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    I got into High Wycombe early and went to the Falcon pub (Wetherspoons) before making my way to the game.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    The ground looked okay from the outside. Inside the standing away end looked good from where I was sitting in the Main Stand. The view of the pitch is good and the countryside scenery around the stadium looked nice when you are in the stand.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    Reading dominated the first half and should have been at least 3-0 up at half time but we didn’t take our chances and it was 0-0 at half time. In the second half, Wycombe looked better and took the lead but we quickly levelled the game to 1-1. The game finished 1-1 and went to penalties which we won 4-2 on. The Wycombe fans didn’t really create much of an atmosphere throughout the game and our fans out sang them throughout. I didn't get any food at half time but I got a cider which took a long time to get as the stewards were pouring them from the bottles into the cups just outside the stadium and I waited over 20 minutes to get one despite leaving to get a drink 5 minutes before the first half ended.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    We decided to walk from the stadium back to the train station which took about 35-40 minutes.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    It was good. Its an away day I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It’s not the best away day I’ve done before but not the worst either.

    Peter Williams (MK Dons)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting Adams Park?
     
    Even though it is a "local" derby this would be the first time I had visited Wycombe.
     
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
     
    I travelled on the official coach and therefore no problems on the journey.
     
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
     
    Wycombe had a Fan Zone at the ground which was very popular with the Dons fans and a small number of home fans. I enjoyed a great pint of bitter for £4 but my friends had to suffer drinking small bottles of lager and cider for the same price.
     
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of Adams Park?
     
    Surrounded by views of the countryside the ground is one of the best in this League. The away end has good legroom and the acoustics are excellent. Opposite the dugouts there is a large 2 tiered stand which looks most impressive. The other 2 sides are quite small and I suspect quite old as well.
     
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
     
    Great atmosphere no doubt due to our large away following. Started off with a penalty to Wycombe which was awarded I think due to the wonderful dive which Tom Daley would have been proud of. We then scored before conceding again shortly afterwards. In injury time we were then given a penalty which from a distance looked dodgy. Not a problem as we missed it. We started the second half brilliantly and were again given a penalty that looked soft. This time we scored. For the next 15 minutes we dominated and should have scored again. However, the last 15 minutes belonged to Wycombe and they scored the winning goal from the player who got us promoted in the last game of the season last year. I didn't have anything to eat but the cup of tea was good.
     
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
     
    Previous reviews have mentioned the delay in getting away after the game which I can fully understand. Our coach had a Police escort using the other side of the road so had no problems.
     
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
     
    Despite the result, I did enjoy the game and I certainly will attend the ground again in the future.

    I was looking forward to this game because it was another ground to tick off the list and another awayday.

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

    I got on the supporters club coach at 8 am and arrived at a local pub near the ground about 1 pm.

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

    I went to the pub for a bit then walked to the ground where Wycombe had put together a fan park which looked impressive. The home fans I did encounter we’re welcoming and friendly. Going around the ground seeing loads of families going to watch Wycombe shows that Wycombe are a nice family club.

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

    Wycombe's ground is situated by a range of hills which is a good view to see from the away end. The away end was okay but the facilities could have some improvement. It has one big two-tiered stand, a small seated side stand opposite the big stand and a small terrace for the home fans behind the goal.

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

    Most of the first half was quite even. Both teams had their chances but Wycombe took their chances from a corner just before half time. Tranmere started the second half well and managed to equalise 10 minutes into the second half which was our first goal in 6 league games. However, Wycombe managed to go back ahead from the man himself Akinfenwa. Finally, in stoppage time Wycombe were awarded a penalty which they slotted away to make it 3-1. A load of fans including me didn’t stay for the full time whistle.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    I got back on the supporters club coach which arrived back at Prenton Park around 10 pm.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    The day out to Adams Park wasn’t bad with seeing a new ground and the awayday in general but the result ruined the day. If we stay up I’ll be back there next season.
