History and description

Bedminster FC originally played at Ashton Gate Stadium before merging with Bristol City in 1900. The merged club moved to Bristol City's ground at St John's Lane, but in 1904 returned to Ashton Gate. The ground was gradually developed and in 1913 hosted an international between England and Wales. In 1935, Ashton Gate set its record attendance when 43,335 people attended an FA Cup tie versus Preston North End.

In 1958, a new main stand opened. Twelve years later, in 1970, a new Dolman Stand was built on the opposite side.

The ground remained largely unchanged until the 1990s when it underwent a conversion into an all-seater. At the same time, (in 1994), a new lower tier was built behind one of the goals. One year later, (1995), a new upper tier was added to the Dolman Stand.

In the 2000s, Bristol City started to explore the possibilities of building a new modern stadium. Plans were made for a 30,000-seater just south of Ashton Gate in the Ashton Vale area, dubbed Ashton Vale Stadium, but heavy resistance of local residents and environmental groups first delayed and ultimately cancelled the plans.

In late 2013, Bristol City proposed the redevelopment of Ashton Gate as a backup plan in case their plans to redevelop Ashton Vale were not successful. However, since April 2014 they have presented their principal plans for the redevelopment of Ashton Gate.

Over the course of two years, beginning in the summer of 2014, both the Williams and Wedlock stands were rebuilt, while the other two stands received refurbishment. The works were completed in 2016 and increased seating capacity from 21,000 to 27,000.

How to get to Ashton Gate

The Ashton Gate Stadium is located on the south-western edge of Bristol, about two miles from the city center and the main Temple Meads rail station. It is one of the largest football stadiums in England and it is also home to Bristol City F.C. The walk from Temple Meads station takes about forty minutes, though the Parson Street rail station is located closer to the stadium, a ten to fifteen-minute walk. Trains run once every hour from Temple Meads station for the five-minute journey.

On matchdays, a special shuttle bus service runs from Temple Gate near Temple Meads station to the stadium. The bus service runs one hour before kick-off and buses return after the match has finished.

You can catch the city bus from the centre or regional buses from Bristol Bus Station.

Address: Ashton Road, Bristol, BS3 2EJ
