🚙 Travel Guide: Morecambe (Saturday, August 24)

Travel information for the trip to Morecambe

21 August 2019

Exeter City make their fourth and final away trip in August as they take on Morecambe at the Globe Arena.

City’s last trip to the Globe Arena saw them take away a 2-0 win on the road with goals from Pierce Sweeney and Jayden Stockley.

GLOBE ARENA (LA4 4TB)

The Globe Arena was opened in 2010 after Morecambe had spent 89 years at Christie Park.

Away fans are mostly accommodated in the Bay Radio terrace which houses up to 1,400 fans. A total of 300 seats are also made available in the Peter McGuigan stand which is shared with the home fans.

GRECIAN TRAVEL

Grecian Travel will depart Unit 1 Nightclub at 6:30am for a fare of £40.

Other pick-up points include: Honiton Road Park & Ride (By Miller and Carter Steakhouse), Cullompton Services (Junction 28), Tiverton (Junction 27), Taunton (Junction 25), any other pick-ups en-route by prior arrangement.

BY ROAD

Follow the M5 and M6 to A683 in Lancashire. Exit the M6 at junction 34 and follow the signs for Morecambe. After around five miles you will reach a crossroads (with a McDonalds over on the right) where you turn right onto the Morecambe Road.

You will then reach a roundabout, (where there is a Toby Carvery) where you take the first exit into Westgate Road (signposted West Promenade, Sandylands). Continue along this road for about one mile and you will reach the stadium on your right.

BY RAIL

You are able to take the train up to Morecambe on the day of the game. You can take the 7:24am service from Exeter St. David’s up to Birmingham New Street before changing to take the 10:15am train up to Lancaster. From Lancaster you then need to take the 12:14 train to Morecambe which takes around 10 minutes. It is then a 1.2 mile walk from the station to the Globe Arena. Coming back it is difficult to return on the same day because the last train from Morecambe to get you back to Exeter on the same day leaves at 17:04, which will of course leave very little time to catch after the full-time whistle.

BY AIR

You can fly from Exeter to Manchester with City's main club sponsors Flybe and then get the train to Morecambe. Click here for more details.
