How to get there
The ground is located in the town of Burslem, one of the six towns comprising Stoke On Trent.
Leave the M6 at junction 15 or 16 and take the A500 towards 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 cross roads and then take the first road on the left which takes you down to the ground.
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 Vale Park and then take a taxi up to the ground.
There’s a countless number of celebrities who hail from these parts.
These four were born and bred a corner kick from Vale Park. Ian Kilmister, better known as Motorhead front man ‘Lemmy’, Robbie Williams, who is said to be a huge Vale fan, ex National Lottery and Blue Peter presenter Anthea Turner and Word Darts Champion Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor.
