Getting there
By Car: (approx 40 miles from HW)
A few routes to choose from but
for those opting for the motorway go via the M40 east, M25 north to join the M1 northbound. Proceed on M1 until junction 10 and follow the A1081 signposted Luton (S). After mile turn left at junction 10A and into London Road. After another mile turn left at roundabout onto flyover. Just before the next roundabout, turn left into Dallow Road and then look for a left turn into Clifton Road. Ground is just over the bridge.
Parking is street parking but it may be better to park nearer the town to reduce the risk of car crime. Check for specific or more detailed directions.
Train: Nearest station Luton. Trains run from London Kings Cross Thameslink. Kenilworth Road is around a 15 minute walk from the Station. Turn right out of station and follow road towards Sainsburys. Turn left near the dual carriageway and onto pathway. Follow pathway until the roundabout complex at Dunstable Road. Turn right and then down onto the road. Take the first left for the ground. Check for specific times and connections of trains.
The first League meeting between the two sides in September 1996 marked the official opening of the Woodlands Stand at Adams Park.

The two sides did meet once before - a friendly in November 1971 arranged as part of the deal that took Viv Busby to Kenilworth Road the previous year. The game ended 1-1 before a gate of 1,499 at Loakes Park. Vic Halom scored for the Hatters with John Delaney equalising for Wycombe.

The meeting between the two sides on 24th March 2015 was Wanderers' 1000th Football League game.
