Exeter City will be looking to do the league double over Grimsby Town when they face the Mariners at Blundell Park on Saturday.

If you are going to the game here is our guide to visiting Grimsby Town FC.

Alternatively, drop into Reception at St James Park to book


Use the M5 and then take M42, M1 and M180 to A180 in North Lincolnshire. Then follow A180 to Imperial Ave in Cleethorpes where you will find the ground on your left.


The journey from Exeter St David’s to Cleethorpes Railway Station takes six and a half an hour and would require at least one change, normally at Sheffield. When you arrive in Cleethorpes, walk left along the seafront until you see the ground and then cross the bridge. After crossing the bridge, turn right and proceed down the road, this will lead you to the away entrance. This walk should take 15 to 20 minutes and has chip shops and pubs on the way. The 7.23am train on Saturday, February 24, changing at Sheffield, will get you into Cleethorpes at 1.49pm.


There is no car park at the ground, meaning you will have to rely on street parking. Harrington Street, which runs between the stadium and the Humber estuary, is a good place to start.
