Getting to the Cooper Associates County Ground:
As Taunton is a small town, we are asking all spectators to plan their journeys to and from the Cooper Associates County Ground carefully. Please see some useful information below to help with this. Alternatively, why not download and print our match day guides: Public Notice and Car Park Facilities Flyer.

By Foot…
Walking to and from the Cooper Associates County Ground will be the quickest and easiest option if you are local to Taunton. Road Closures are also in place to ensure your safety.

By Bicycle…
If you are cycling to the Cooper Associates County Ground, there will be two stations you can park your bicycles: St James Street Car Park (in the ground) and the Viridor Car Park.

By Car…
For those who will be driving to Taunton please be aware of the road closures which are listed below. Taunton is a small town and it is highly likely that there will be a reasonable level of traffic congestion on the day, particularly in the Town Centre.

Road Closures…
To ensure all spectators are able to enter and exit the ground safely a traffic and transport plan has been agreed with Somerset Highways which will see a small number of road closures. These closures will be implemented from 14:00 until approximately 21:30. The following roads will be affected:

  • St James Street from North Street to Priory Avenue

Please note the red road closures will be active from 14:30 through to 17:30. The yellow road closures will be from 19:30 through to 21:30 approx.

Park and Ride – RECOMMENDED…
To try and minimise congestion in the Town Centre, we are recommending our spectators to make use of the two Park and Ride facilities. At just £2.40, the buses will drop you in the Town Centre which is a short five minute walk from the Ground:

  • Taunton Gateway (East) – TA3 5LU
  • Taunton Silk Mills (West) – TA1 5AA

On completion of the match, the buses will collect from the Town Centre from 20:45, with a service every 10 minutes through until 21:45.

Car Parking…
There is no parking at the Ground. All normal car parks in the town will remain open, apart from the Coal Orchard Car Park which is closed from midnight on 23rd June.

Please note car parking will be limited due to the time our match is starting and residents finishing work. Please download this useful flyer which lists the various car parks and their postcodes.
