GETTING TO THE KCOM STADIUM
Take the M1 to Junction 21A. Leave via the A46 exit to Braunstone Frith/ Kirby Muxloe/ B5380. Head right at the fork in the road following signs for the A46 Newark. Then merge onto the A46, and continuing past Lincoln. At the next roundabout, take the first exit for Humber Bridge and then at the third roundabout after 21 miles on the A15 take the third exit for the M180/Humber Bridge. Continue along the M180 to Junction 5, where you should exit and follow the signs for Hull/Hull Airport. At the roundabout. choose the second exit onto the A15 and cross the Humber Bridge (bear in mind there is a £2.50 toll charge) take the third exit, denoted by the signs as ‘City Centre’. Turn left at the traffic lights, go over the flyover, turn right at the next set of traffic lights and the ground will be on your right.
There plenty of spaces to park your car at the KCOM Stadium car park (priced at £5), but you should be aware that there can be delays of around half an hour getting away after the final whistle. There is also a park and ride service – which is clearly signposted off the A63, and a large number of city centre car parks, like the ones on Pryme Street and Freetown Way available, as well as the free parking near opposite the Hull Royal Infirmary.
The KCOM Stadium is approximately twenty minutes walk away from Hull Paragon Railway Station. Turn left at the end of the platform and then left into the bus station, walking through to the exit at the far end. Head past Tesco on your right, cross over Park Street at the traffic lights. Follow the blue signs to KC Stadium go along Londisborough Street, cross Argyle Street and head onto the pedestrian walkway and take bridges over railway lines to the ground.
The club coaches will leave Craven Cottage and West Barnes Lane, opposite Motspur Park train station, at 9am.
The Park View (57 Walton Street, Hull, HU3 6JB) almost directly opposite the stadium car park entrance has always welcomed visiting supporters in the past. This family run pub serves a wide array of beers and has big screens to show live sport as well as housing a burger van outside on matchdays.
The Walton Street Social Club (243 Walton Street, Hull HU3 6JR) welcomes away fans as well but you will be charged a £1 entry fee. The club serves very good cheap beer in a friendly atmosphere with a separate area serving food and other refreshments.
The Boot Room (354-356 Anlaby Road, Hull, HU3 6NS) is located further down Walton Street on the corner of the junction with Anlaby Road. Although this is where a large number of Hull fans congregate before the games, they have welcomed away fans previously and have a number of big screens showing live sport.
The other pubs in the vicinity of the KCOM Stadium or the old Boothferry Park are all designated either officially or unofficially as being for home fans only. There are a number of alternative venues in the city centre, including the local Wetherspoon’s The Admiral of the Humber (1 Anlaby Road, Hull HU1 2NT), The New King Edward Bar (which is right next door to the Admiral of the Humber and located upstairs, 1 Anlaby Road, Hull HU1 2NR), The Punch Hotel (Queen Victoria Square, Hull HU1 3RA) and The Hop & Vine (24 Albion Street, Hull HU1 3TH).
