    Park and Ride plus Cardiff with a 6 year old


    0 Not allowed!
    Am going to the game on Saturday and was thinking of using Park and Ride.
    I've read Mill road is popular and you need to be there 1.5 hours before the game
    to get parking.
    If I use Brighton Racecourse and arrive around 2pm is that too late?

    Also I am taking my 6 year old son.Am a little wary of Cardiff fans
    because of him as I've been told the're a nasty bunch.
    Will they be mixed in with brighton fans on the trains as I might go
    from Worthing by train and will they be using Park and Ride?

    Thanks

      Yes the trains will be mixed but Cardiff have done a lot to stop antisocial behaviour at their matches, that's why were playing them on a Saturday for the first time in years.

      To be fair I don't know how it is now, but we stopped using the racecourse P&R early last season as it wasn't great. Usually got there around 2pm and quite often only just made our seats before k.o.
      Be dangerous. It's careful out there

      Cardiff's Soul Crew are a nasty bunch but they wont pick on a six year old. Blokes in their 20s and 30s though...

      Thanks.

      Regards Park and Ride,when I went to the Blackburn game a few weeks back by train I noticed there
      were parking places at Hove station.I'm tempted to park there then get the train to Falmer however
      I'm a little wary I might get there and all places are gone.Anyone else park there?

      They are a nasty bunch and since we played them at The Goldstone in 97 I've little time for them, however I've got no issues at all with taking my six year old to this or indeed any match home or away

      Would advise getting to Racecourse by 1.45 at the latest otherwise it will take ages for the bus to get you to the ground. Coming back less of a problem

      hello maldini. cardiff fan here m8 who lives in portslade, am also taking my 5 year old saturday to the game,we will be in the away end obviously, and his mother in the north stand. there will be no more problems taking your lad to this game than any other game of football. we have made massive strides over recent years to move on from the mayhem that sometimes happened at our games. have a great day with your lad and good luck for the rest of the season

      I am staying in Worthing this weekend and trying to figure out the best way to get to the game. Is it on the free bus x700 or get the train to Brighton and out. Any help appreciated. Ta.

      Obviously it's quicker by train, and ideal if you fancy spending a bit of time in Brighton pre match. Personally I'd take the train, have a spot of lunch in Brighton then get the train just after 2pm to Falmer.
