Today's Away Ground Guide is The Rec, home of Bath Rugby.
The Recreation Ground
How To Get There
Bath can be easily accessed travelling down the M5 if you are travelling down by car. The only parking at the ground is a limited amount of disabled parking spaces; if this is needed then you will need to contact the club in advance. Alternatively, there are a few park and ride places around Bath City centre. The most convenient is just across the river.
If you choose to travel by train, then the Bath Spa Station is just a five-minute walk from the stadium.
What to do Before and After the Game
The Boater is the closest place to go to which many fans use as a meeting place and for a pre match pint. It also has a big outdoor area so it can cope with big crowds.
The Old Green Tree is located on Green Street, it is not the biggest place but it is very close to the ground
Also close to the ground is the Pig & Fiddle, which is aimed at Rugby fans as it is covered in Rugby memorabilia all over the walls, and it shows live sport and has a great outdoor area.
At The Ground
The Clubhouse bar at The Rec is open two hours prior to kick off, and continues serving after the match. There are also a few other bars and food vans dotted around the ground.
Why not make a weekend of it?
There are plenty of places to stay around Bath. With the ground so close to the City Centre, you can take your pick from a wide range of B&Bs and hotels. Due to the high volume of tourists, you may find some places insist on a two-night minimum on weekends. There are two Travelodge's in Bath, which might be slightly cheaper.
If you do decide to stay over, there are plenty of things to do in Bath. There are Bus Tours and guided walks and you can take a look around the Roman Baths and the Gothic Abbey. After you have finished, you can delve into the Bath Restaurants, Pubs and Bars.
