GETTING TO MK DONS

7 April 2015

A guide for all supporters making the trip to stadiummk this Tuesday evening,

BY CAR...
Departing from Glanford Park, take the first exit at the roundabout by Tesco’s onto Doncaster Road, then continue to the next roundabout, taking the first exit again onto the M181, heading towards Humber Bridge/Doncaster/M180.

After two miles, keep right at the fork, following signs for Doncaster/M180 before merging onto the M180. Continue for just over 12 miles and take the exit onto the M18 towards the M1/Doncaster.

Continue for 20 miles and merge onto the M1. Continue ahead for 106 miles and exit the motorway at junction 14 and turn right at the roundabout at the top of the exit slip road towards Milton Keynes. Continue straight over the roundabout on Childs Way. At the Fox Milne roundabout turn left onto Tongwell Street. Continue straight over next roundabout continuing on Tongwell Street. At the next roundabout (Brinklow) turn right along the A421. Continue over a number of roundabouts, following signs for Buckingham, on reaching the Bleak Hall roundabout turn left onto Grafton Street and follow signs for the stadium.

BY TRAIN...
Arriving in Milton Keynes two hours before kick-off, depart from Scunthorpe Station at 14:08 on the service to Manchester Airport. Disembark the service after around one hour and 45 minutes, on arrival in Stockport. From platform two in Stockport, catch the 16:23 Virgin Trains service to London Euston, getting off around one hour and 23 minutes later at Milton Keynes Central Station. From here, you can take the 45-minute walk to the ground or catch the 18:13 service to Selhurst, getting off after four minutes upon arrival in Bletchley, which is closer to Stadium MK. From here, it is a 30-minute walk, signposted from the station.

PUBS AND GRUB...
There is a hotel installed in one side of the ground and their bar welcomes away fans in on matchdays, providing club colours are kept discrete. The closest pub ‘The Inn On The Lake’ no longer allows fans in on matchdays but the Enigma Tavern is well situated for fans arriving by train. Between Bletchley and the ground, on Saxon Street near Asda, it is a child-friendly public house that serves good food and drink with a nice beer garden available if it is a nice evening. The working mens’ club near the station is only open to fans on Saturday fixtures. Fenny Stratford is a nearby area around 20 minutes’ walk from the ground and it has a few establishments in a close vicinity, including the Swan Hotel, which also has a large car park. Food-wise, there should be a wide range of places to pick from, if you are in the Milton Keynes Central Station or the nearby shopping centre, as well as in and around the ground, such as KFC and McDonalds.

WHAT TO EXPECT...
This ground is next level when it comes to the stadiums in Sky Bet League One. Opened in 2007, it has recently added more seats to the upper tiers and it makes for a very aesthetically pleasing, modern stadium which can hold over 30,000 fans.

It has a built-in hotel if you plan to make a day or two of the midweek trip but the away end for fans is most welcoming. The facilities are excellent in the bowl-like stadium and up to 3,000 visiting fans can be accommodated in the North Stand if required. The seats are excellent and comfy with a superb view and plenty of legroom, while the food and concourses are good and it should be an enjoyable away day for the Iron’s travelling support.
