Going by car?

Leave the M40 at Junction 10 and take the A43 until the road meets the M1 at Northampton services. Continue on the M1 until Junction 32 and then join the M18. Leave the M18 at Junction 2 and then join the A1 which turns into the A1(M). Leave the A1(M) at Junction 44 and then merge onto the A64. Follow signs for the A1237, (York (North), Harrogate, Thirsk) and then take the second exit onto the A1237. Keep following the A1237 for approximately five miles until you reach a roundabout with signs for the A19 (York Clifton). Drive approximately two miles and Bootham Crescent is on your left.

If you arrive early enough then there is street parking in a number of side roads off Burton Stone Lane. Otherwise you may have to travel a further distance away from the ground as there are a number of residents only parking schemes in operation in the general area, or you could seek out a pay and display car park in the city centre and walk back out to the ground.

Going by train?

The nearest station is York mainline railway station, which is a 20-minute walk away from  the ground.

High Wycombe dep. 08:50 09:37
York arr. 12:33 12:48

York dep.17:55  18:34

From the car park attached to the station (there is no need to go through main station exit), take the new pedestrian footpath that emerges close to the Post Office building. Turn left and then left again when you reach the river and cross the Ouse on the footbridge alongside the York-Scarborough railway line. Once over the bridge, turn left at the Abbey Guest House into Marygate car park and follow the footpath, the railway is to your left. At the far end of the car park, the footpath goes under the railway, turn right into Bootham Terrace and walk up the rise to the main road. Turn left, cross the road and Bootham Crescent is the first turning on the right. There is a newsagent's shop on this corner. This journey is not recommended for wheelchair users as there are steps at both ends of the Ouse bridge. 

Around the ground: 

There is a supporters' club on the corner of the ground that overlooks the away end and they allow away fans in. The nearest pub is the Burton Stone Inn which you should see on the A19 as you near the ground. Going back down the A19 (away from the city centre) on the left there is another pub called the Old Grey Mare. If you have a bit of time on your hands and you like real ale then it may be advisable to embark on a 15-minute stroll up the A19 and into York city centre. If at the top of the A19 you proceed through the old Bootham Bar (Gate) into the old town you will quickly reach the Three Legged Mare on your right. Although a small modern bar it has a great range of real ales on offer, plus a selection of continental bottled beers. Alternatively before you get to Bootham Bar/Gate turn left on to Gillygate, where there is Wackers fish and chip restaurant, which has won a number of awards.
