It’s not a short journey! Almost 250 miles to drive which will take something over 4 hours by road.
By Coach – as ever, this is likely to be the easiest and cheapest option. The date of the tie has now been confirmed as Sat 4th Nov. We’ll update this preview with travel information as we get it.
By Train – travel from Stroud involves 2 changes at Gloucester and York and will take between 6 and 7 hours (reduce the journey to less than 5 hours if you start at Gloucester rather than Stroud). Obviously, you can’t get back on the same day. Scarborough Station is about a mile from the ground.
By Road – The address is the Flamingo Land Stadium, Scarborough Sports Village, Ashburn Road, Scarborough, YO11 2JW. There are apparently over 200 free car parking spaces at the Sports Village (The Sports Village is signposted en route from all directions into the town – same postcode).
The Swimming Pool turnstiles are usually the ones that visiting supporters should make for. Turnstiles usually open at 1.45 pm.
The stadium capacity is 3,252 with 586 seats and it will almost certainly be a sell-out.
Food & Drink – Normally, The Clubhouse is accessible from 12.30pm should anyone wish to drink in the Victory Bar (open 12.30pm-6pm). If not, perhaps try some of the following pubs/restaurants –
Scholar’s Bar – Walking distance to the ground, real ales, live sports, drinks promotions
The Tow Bar– Great location on the outskirts of Scarborough, ample parking, child friendly, suitable for coaches, drinks promotions
Rack n Roll , Lord Nelson , The Foxhound Inn , The Cockpit (restaurant)
