Accrington By Road/Parking

Leave the M6 at Junction 29 and take the M65 towards Blackburn. Continue past Blackburn towards Accrington and leave the M65 at Junction 7. Then take the left hand exit at the roundabout onto the A6185 towards Clitheroe (this is in the opposite direction to Accrington). At the first set of traffic lights turn right onto the A678, towards Padiham, and then at the next traffic lights, turn right onto the A680 towards Accrington. After about half a mile along the A680 you will pass the Crown pub on your left. Take the next left into Livingstone Road and then an immediate left for the Club car park. The car park is on the small size and costs £5 and as you would expect it fills up pretty quickly. Otherwise street parking.

Accrington Where to Drink

Behind the Main Stand is the Club Sports Bar, called Redz which allows in visiting fans and enjoys views across the stadium. The nearest pub is the Crown, which is just behind the ground on the main Whalley Road and welcomes all supporters. For certain bigger games then a fan zone is put together outside the ground. It features a heated marquee, live music and has bar facilities. Away fans are welcome to use the fan zone and the beer is very reasonably priced at £2 a pint, before 2pm.

If you arrive early and have a bit of time on your hands then you may consider visiting the 'Peel Park Hotel' in Turkey Street. This pub serves food and is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. It also overlooks Peel Park, the site of Accrington Stanley's old ground. Go along Whalley Road (A680) towards the town centre. Before reaching the town centre turn left onto the B6237 Queens Road (if you miss this turning proceed into the town centre and turn left onto the A679 Burnley Road). Continue along Queens Road into Penny House Lane. At the end of this road, you will reach a T-junction with the A679 Burnley Road. Turn left onto the Burnley Road and then go almost immediately right into Alice Street. Then after passing Peel Park School turn left into Turkey Street. The Peel Park pub is up on the right. The red brick wall opposite the Peel Park pub is the only structure that remains from the Peel Park ground.

Robert Bury informs me; 'For those fans who like a good ale, then Grants Bar in Accrington has its own brewery on site serving its own Big Clock Brewery selection of ales as well as other guest and well-known beers. It is a brisk 20 minute walk (or slow 25 min) to the ground but is well worth a stop if you have the time.' The pub also has a Pizzeria too. See the Grants Bar Website for more details

Accrington by Train


Accrington Railway Station is about a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from Manchester Victoria and Leeds. Leave the station and travel down the slope (signposted M65 Blackburn) towards the large viaduct roundabout in the centre of town. Take the Milnshaw Lane exit at the opposite side of the roundabout alongside the Perry's Peugeot dealership. After approximately 100 metres this road then joins Whalley Road. Bear left up the hill and follow Whalley Road for about a mile, passing the hospital, a set of traffic lights and then a mini roundabout. Take the next right after the mini roundabout junction into Livingstone Road. The football club is approximately 100 metres on the left on Livingstone Road. Thanks to Rob Heys for providing the directions.

WHAT’S IT LIKE FOR AWAY FANS

Away fans are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground, where up to 1,800 fans can be accommodated. In addition around 500 fans can be accommodated in the new Eric Whalley Stand on one side of the pitch.

The Coppice Terrace is of a reasonable height and is located quite close to the playing action, so it allows fans to get a good view of the game. However, the terrace is uncovered so it can be quite hard to really generate some noise from this area. The facilities located behind the stand are adequate.

Although having only around six rows of seats, the Eric Whalley Stand does have a roof and is free of any supporting pillars. The Club currently don’t charge fans any extra to sit in this seated stand, which also has better facilities than the Coppice Terrace.
Food on offer inside the ground includes; a range of Pukka Pies; All Steak, Chicken Balti, Meat & Potato and Cheese & Onion (all £2.80), Sausage Rolls (£2), Cheeseburgers (£3), Burgers (£2.60), Hot Dogs (£2) and Pot Noodles (£1.80).
