London Road, currently known as the Weston Homes Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is a multi-purpose stadium in Peterborough, England. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Peterborough United.
The stadium holds 15,314 and was built in 1913, though the present ground bears no resemblance to the original following several periods of redevelopment.
London Road is a traditional 'old' football ground. It has terracing at one end behind the goal and a new all seated stand at the other. Running the length of the pitch is the Norwich and Peterborough stand. This can hold approximately 5,000 fans and is an impressive sight from inside the ground. Opposite this is the old main stand which does have a couple of supporting pillars obstructing your view of the action.
There are four, individual stands at London Road. The BGL Family Stand features two tiers that are separated by a row of executive boxes and, as the name suggests, is where families are encouraged to sit. The Main North Stand is a two-tiered section of the ground that is also the largest. Again, the tiers are separated by a row of executive boxes. The London Road Terrace is a non-seated section of the ground that welcomes some of Peterborough’s most vocal supporters. The Motorpoint Stand is the newest section of the stadium and opened in 2014.
Visiting supporters are situated at one end of the Main Stand where just over 1,800 fans can be accommodated. Facilities within this stand aren't great but the view is ok. If you are seated towards the back of the stand you'll probably be sat on the wooden seats. Leg room is relatively tight so be aware when visiting.
The Cherry Tree on Oundle Road accepts home and away supporters. As an added advantage it's possible to park your car there for a small fee. The Peacock also welcomes away fans and has a wide selection of hot and cold drinks and food on offer. The pub can be found just past London road by the KFC restaurant.
There is a burger bar just outside the ground, a KFC opposite the ground and various food outlets along London Road to make sure you won’t go hungry.
Due to the ground redevelopment, there is no public car parking at the stadium. However, there is parking for cars in the Pleasure Fair Meadow council and Railworld car parks opposite the stadium (adjacent to the Town bridge on Oundle Road). Street parking is available but you'll need to arrive very early to guarantee a good spot.
