Please note that some of these, for example the Baths Hall and the Plowright Theatre, are very unlikely to be open on a matchday morning but the guide is handy should you want to make more of your visit to Scunthorpe than just going to watch the football, perhaps by stretching it out over a weekend.

The town centre is just under 10 minutes further on from the stadium in the car, if you take the second exit at Berkeley Circle after passing the Sands Venue Stadium.

There is a Travelodge adjacent to the stadium but should you wish to stay overnight before the game, click here for a guide to local hotels and prices.

If you arrive early enough, and fancy a walk, it takes around 30 minutes to walk into the town centre, where there are numerous bars and eating establishments.

Our turnstiles open an hour and a half before kick-off, with the away bar also open from that period of time. 

The bar opens from 1.30pm on a Saturday and 6.15pm for an evening kick off. The bar serves both draught beer and lager (subject to safety advice), as well as serving a selection of snacks and hot food.

By car:
From all Routes, M180: The ground has got be one of the easiest to find in the Football League.

It is situated on the outskirts of Scunthorpe, very close to the motorway.

Leave the M180 at Junction 3 and take the M181 for Scunthorpe.

At the end of this motorway, you will see the ground on your right.

Turn right at the first roundabout onto the A18 and right again into the large car park at the ground.

For local travel and matchday news, tune into BBC Radio Humberside on 95.9FM, 1485AM, DAB Digital Radio and online via

By train: The station is over two miles away from the stadium. Therefore a taxi is probably the easiest way to get to the ground.

If you fancy a walk though, turn left out of the station and head towards the crossroads (facing a church) and turn right into Oswald Road, going past a set of traffic lights and the Honest Lawyer and Blue Bell pubs.

At the next traffic lights turn left into Doncaster Road (where there a number of fast food outlets).

Then just go straight down this road and you will eventually reach the Sands Venue Stadium on your left.

Otherwise as you pass the Blue Bell pub on your left, turn left onto Doncaster Road where you can catch Bus Number 909 (every 20 minutes to the hour, does not run on Sundays) down to the ground.
