Vale Park has a capacity of 18,947, all of which is seated. The away fans are housed in the Hamil Road stand which has room for 4,500. The view and facilities, located on the concourse behind the stand, are good.

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 along the route have to be arranged prior to travel.   

For more information or to book please contact Chris Woolcott on 01392 250250 or John Bishop on 07904036334 or by email at: john.bishop760@btinternet.com (after 6pm).

Alternatively, drop into reception at St James Park to book. 

BY ROAD

Use the M5 and follow the M5 and M6. At junction 15, of the M6, take the exit to Stoke on Trent. Follow A500 until the A527 Tunstall/Burslem exit, where you take the A527 towards Tunstall/Burslem.

At the next island just past the Price Kensington factory turn right for Burslem town centre. Continue on this road up the hill, crossing another island and into Burslem town centre. Continue straight on over the traffic lights at the crossroads and then take the first road on the left which takes you down to the ground.

BY RAIL

Longport Railway Station is the closest to the Vale Park ground, but is a good 30-minute walk away and is not well served by trains, unlike Stoke On Trent station which is. Therefore most fans end up at Stoke On Trent railway station, which is over four miles away from the stadium and then take a taxi up to the ground (around £8).

On return, there is no train that will get you back that evening after the game, so an overnight stay would be advised.

PUBS/FOOD

According to footballgroundguide.com, near the away turnstiles is a club bar called the Vale Social. Away fans are admitted but this is at a cost of £2 per person, with under-18s and over-60s going free. Most pubs in the town are for home fans only, including the closest pub to the ground The Vine, but the Bull’s Head welcomes away fans.
