Drivers arriving from all routes should exit the M4 at junction 33, taking the A4232 towards Penarth.Leave the A4232 at the 2nd exit after about 6 miles, signposted “Cardiff City Stadium.” At the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Leckwith Road and the ground is on the right.Over the next few minutes the noise levels grew and grew, far louder even than in the opening quarter when they had raced into a 13-0 lead, to a crescendo of urgency and exhortation. In the final minute, Parra kicked another penalty for a 22-16 victory. Visiting an opponent's stadium is not supposed to be the most pleasant experience out there, but there are a number of grounds which are a joy to visit, and simply fun to go to and see your team play.Ninian Park hosted its last competitive match at the end of April 2009.A new 30,000 capacity stadium was built opposite the ground, with a build cost of £38 million, offering the potential for expansion to a capacity of 60,000.The corners of the ground are open, apart from one corner where there is a large video screen.By Road: The New Den is located in Zampa Road, London SE16 3LN.

Three of the stands at the new ground are called the Grange End, Canton Stand and the Grandstand, replicating their equivalents at Ninian Park.

With a build cost of £16 million, it was the first new football stadium to be constructed for a professional team in London since 1937, and the first all-seater stadium to be completed after the Taylor Report on the Hillsborough disaster.

The new Den is made up of four, fair sized two tiered stands that are of the same height.

After about a mile take the first exit at the roundabout onto the A2.

From Elephant & Castle, take the A2 into Old Kent Road.
