Sporting heaven at Ashton Gate Stadium

Home to Bristol City Football and Rugby Club, Ashton Gate is much more than just a stadium, with a major refurbishment meaning it is now a highly versatile events venue too. Close to central Bristol with great transport links, the 27,000 capacity stadium has conference facilities, the largest indoor pub screen in Europe, plus a cafe and pizzeria. You may be here for a match, a conference in the Lansdown Suite, or a meeting in the executive boxes with floor to ceiling views of the pitch, a wedding, or birthday - whatever the occasion, Ashton Gate will rise to it.
