Wanderers travel to Burton Albion on Tuesday night and wwfc.com are here to bring you all the info for your trip.
The Pirelli Stadium,
Burton Upon Trent,
Recommended road directions
Take the M40 (signed Birmingham, Oxford). Branch left at junction 3A and join the M42 (signed The North and M6). Leave the M42 at Junction 11 and at the roundabout take the second exit on to the A444 (signed Burton). Continue into Burton. Go past the ‘Black Horse’ and ‘Copper Hearth’ pubs, straight across the mini-roundabout, and you come to a roundabout with St Peters Bridge in front of you.
Turn right into Stapenhill Road (A444) and then left at the traffic lights onto the Trent Bridge. Take the right hand lane and go straight on at both sets of lights into Horninglow Street. Go straight on at the next lights, then turn right underneath the Brewery fly-over, into Hawkins Lane. Continue through the industrial estate and go over the railway bridge. Go straight across the roundabout into Princess Way and the ground entrance is 300 yards on your right.
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 3.30pm. Travel prices are £19 for adults, £18 for students/seniors, and £17 for children. Places cost £3 extra for non-members. If you wish to book by phone (01296 429307) or by email (email@example.com). OWWSA will try and accommodate everyone who books this way, until the coach is full.
Travelling by rail?
Burton is served by trains from London St Pancras International. On most services you change at Derby. The station is around a mile and a half from the ground. The Trent Barton V1 and V2 bus service runs every half an hour from outside the railway station to the Pirelli Stadium. Note however that the last London bound train departs Burton at 9.40pm, so if you are planning to use the train you will need to return on Wednesday.
Facilities for away fans
Away fans are predominantly housed in the Coors East Stand Terrace at one end of the ground. In addition 400 seats are also made available to visiting supporters in the Main Stand. As you would expect from a modern stadium, the view of the playing action (there are no supporting pillars) and facilities are good. There is a large car park at the ground (charge made). Alternative car parking is available at the Ryknild Trading Estate, by the roundabout leading to Princess Way. Otherwise there is street parking.
Around the stadium
Probably the nearest hostelry is the “Great Northern”. This serves Burton Bridge Beers. The location is Wetmore Road, which leads off the roundabout near to the stadium entrance - go up and over the railway bridge and the pub is on the left.
There is also the 'The Beech Inn' which is around a 10-minute walk, up the A5121 Derby Road (going in the opposite direction to Burton town centre) on the left. Further on past this pub on the same side of the road is a McDonalds.
