The club’s small car park is for players and officials only. Therefore, supporters have to park in the surrounding streets. There are usually many spaces under a couple of minutes walk but watch out for parking restrictions around the streets.
Trains run directly from Liverpool Lime Street to Southport station, with journeys typically lasting 50 minutes. Southport station is located a mile-and-a-half away from the ground and it costs around £4 in a taxi to the stadium.
To walk you are best coming out of the main station entrance, turning left into the pedestrian area, walking up to Eastbank Street, turn left (you will see KFC in front of you) and then keep walking straight for about 1 ½ miles down Eastbank Street, onto Scarisbrick New Road and then Haig Avenue is on the left. There are a few pubs along Eastbank Street if you fancy a drink but once at the top of Eastbank Street the next pubs are past the ground, The Richmond on Scarisbrick New Road and The Thatch & Thistle on Norwood Road opposite Haig Avenue. Both do reasonably priced meals and snacks.
