Visiting the Ground - Travel

Stadium Map

In the heart of Chester, this lovely ground sits on the cusp of the River Wear.


Use DH3 3QR for the satnav. Normally there is limited parking at the ground but during matchdays, the club provides more temporary parking spaces. These are announced on the team’s websites 2 or 3 weeks before a game. The club advises against parking in residential areas but there are normally always a few spaces if you are careful where you park.

Train - Public Transport

The closest train station is Chester-le-Street which is just 22 minutes walk from the Ground. There are three companies operating services from the station, meaning you have good connections to the rest of the country.

Airports and Flying

The nearest airport is Newcastle International which is just a 30-minute drive from the stadium. If you want to take public transport from there then it could take 1 hour 30 minutes.
