Where to Eat & Drink.
There is a Club Bar at the ground, however this is for home fans only. The nearest pub is the Crown, which is just behind the ground on the main Whalley Road and welcomes all supporters. A little further down Whalley Road (five minutes walk in the direction of the motorway), is the Greyhound pub.
Food is served within the ground for visiting. The usual burgers and pies are always available.
How to get there.
Leave the M6 at Junction 29 and take the M65 towards Blackburn. Continue past Blackburn towards Accrington and leave the M65 at Junction 7. Then take the left hand exit at the roundabout onto the A6185 towards Clitheroe (this is in the opposite direction to Accrington).
At the first set of traffic lights turn right onto the A678, towards Padiham, and then at the next traffic lights, turn right onto the A680 towards Accrington. After about half a mile along the A680 you will pass the Crown pub on your left.
Take the next left into Livingstone Road and then an immediate left for the club car park. The car park is on the small size and costs £5 and as you would expect it fills up pretty quickly. Otherwise street parking.

Accrington Railway Station is about a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from Manchester Victoria and Leeds.
Monkees singer and original Day Dream Believer Davy Jones hailed from these parts - well his aunties do anyway. The lead vocalist with rock legends Yes, Jon Anderson and The 4 Pennies (who had a number one smash with ‘Juliet’ in 1964) come from the town.
Worthless Fact: The lead singer of the 4 Pennies, Lionel Morton became a presenter on Play School. Accrington’s famous sons and daughters also include “look what you could have won” - Jim Bowen, Cricketer David Lloyd (an avid fan) and numerous world renowned actors from Coronation Street and Emmerdale (Farm).
