Where to Eat & Drink

The Bury FC Social Club will be open for home and away supporters. Two fully stocked bars are available with the usual bar snacks available. There is no charge to gain admission to the Social Club.

A burger van is also available in the car park on matchdays offering hot food and drinks. Catering is also available from all four stands during the game offering the usual matchday fayre.

There are a few pubs around the ground and along Manchester Road in particular.

The Swan & Cemetery, around a ten minute walk from the ground, has previously been popular with Town fans. This Thwaites pub, is quite comfortable, serves good hand pulled beer and has a separate restaurant area. Nearer to the ground is the Staff Of Life pub, which is a basic pub serving hand pulled Lee's.

How to get there and car parking.

Leave the M66 at Junction 3. Take the left hand exit at the junction and follow this road until you come to the junction with the A56 Manchester Road. At this T-junction which has traffic lights, turn right towards Bury. You will pass the Swan & Cemetery pub on your left and then some playing fields. At the end of the playing fields just before the traffic lights and a couple of pubs, turn right into Gigg Lane for the ground. However please note that Gigg Lane is normally closed on match days and the ground itself is not easily seen from the A56.

By Train

There is no railway station in Bury itself, so most fans travelling by train are likely to end up at one of the Manchester stations. Bury Metrolink is served by trams from Manchester Victoria & Piccadilly railway stations. Bury Metrolink Station is about a 10-15 minute walk from the ground.

Car Parking

There is no parking available at the ground itself for visiting fans. Nearby at Phoenix House on Brierley Street (BL9 9HN) there is parking at a cost of £5. Otherwise, street parking, although beware of a residents only parking scheme in operation in the nearby streets, which operates on both matchdays end evenings, with wardens patrolling the area.

Please note Phoenix House car park closes 1 hour following the final whistle.
