By Train

Depart from Kings Cross with at least one change. Allow at least three hours to get there. After late afternoon & evening kick-offs there's only one train back to London, not leaving till after 10 pm - and the journey takes all night!

The KC Stadium is 15 minutes walk from Hull Paragon station. Visiting fans should leave the station on the South side and turn right onto Anlaby Road. The stadium is about 15 minutes walk along Anlaby Road.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 

By Car

The stadium is fairly close to the old Boothferry Park ground, but slightly nearer to the town centre, which is three-quarters of a mile away. Pass the old ground on your right, go under the railway bridge, and at the second set of traffic lights, turn left into Walton Street and you're there.

From The West:
Leave the M62 at Junction 38 and join the A63, towards Hull. The stadium is clearly signposted as you approach Hull. About one mile from the centre of Hull leave the A63 (also signposted for the Hull Royal Infirmary) and take the 2nd exit at the roundabout. Turn left at the lights and then over the flyover, right at the next lights and the ground is on the right.

Parking

The stadium has its own massive car park right next to the stadium, with access from Walton Street. It is floodlit, with a covered surface. If you arrive early and want to go into the city centre, there is a park and ride bus to and from the car park. It's easier to park at Hull than most other grounds but there is one drawback, namely, getting away again at the end of the game, which can take up to half an hour. Also be aware that there are two exits onto Walton Street after a game, the one to the right as you face Walton Street allows right turns only, and the one to the left allows left turns only. Visitors will want the left one to get straight back onto Anlaby Road.

Alternatively there is a Park & Ride facility signposted off the A63 (also shared with home supporters). Many fans opt to park in one of the many town centre car parks and then walk to the stadium. It is perhaps easiest is to park at the Infirmary (clearly signposted from the A63). It's a 10-15 minute walk to the ground from there.

The most convenient car park in the city centre is the Pryme Street multi-storey car park, which is open to 7.30pm. Leave the A63 at the Myton Street exit and head North towards the city centre. You will pass Paragon station on your left. At the next traffic lights turn right into Spencer Street and then immediately left into Prospect Street and follow road round to the right into Pryme Street. Car park entrance is on right. There is also an NCP car park at the end of Pryme Street and Council surface car parks off Freetown Way. To walk to Stadium cross over Ferensway and walk along Spring Bank. Turn left onto Derringham Street by Polar Bear pub and then right onto walkway to the stadium.

Please note that some residential areas near to the stadium are residents-only parking zones, so don't park there as you may well end up with a parking fine. There is some street parking less than five minutes walk away. Leave the A63 at the Humber Bridge Roundabout and take the first exit into Boothferry Road. Pass Boothferry Park and forward onto Anlaby Road towards the Hull Royal Infirmary, You will pass the KC stadium on your left. Go over the flyover, and turn right at "The Eagle" pub into Coltman Street, then take the 2nd right into Cholmley Street, then 4th right into the Boulevard. There are many side streets without parking restrictions. To get to the ground simply walk to the top of the Boulevard and go up the pedestrian walkway to the stadium. To get home simply go the other way down the Boulevard, then left into Hessle Road, after 1/4 mile you'll come to a roundabout which takes you onto the A63 (Clive Sullivan Way) and M62.

Eating & Drinking

There are a number of pubs within a few minutes walk of the stadium, but these are all designated as being for home supporters only. Most Hull fans still seem to be heading for pubs situated around Boothferry Park. These are best avoided by away fans particularly the Silver Cod and Admiral of the Humber. In the nearby City Centre, where there are plenty of pubs to be found. The Sandringham pub, near to Hull main station, in the City Centre is reported to be both friendly and welcoming.

If you are walking to the stadium from the City Centre there are several pubs on Spring Bank, including the Editorial and the Tap and Spile. Also recommended is The Punch Hotel pub. It is situated in the town centre next to the Princes Quay shopping centre, so not far from the train station and provides excellent homemade food.

Carling & Tetleys are usually served within the stadium. However for some high profile matches, the club do not provide alcohol to away supporters.
