It is a relatively easy walk of approximately 1.4 miles to the ground and will take in the region of 25-30 minutes.
On exiting the platform, cross the car park and turn right at the station road entrance onto Box Road. Walk along Box road until you reach the main road. Turn right and follow the footpath along the A4135 towards the village of Slimbridge, cross over the Rail bridge (beware no footpath over this bridge) and then cross the M5 Motorway bridge. Continue walking towards the Slimbridge roundabout until you reach Wisloe Road on your right, the ground is immediately in front of you.
