Bit extra info for those travelling on saturday. I always park in Morrisons just before you reach the ground. If you do not fancy that there is more free parking at the maritime experiance opposite where asda etc. are. you cannot miss the tall sailing ship unless your name is speedie. go up middleton rd from there and you,ll see the ground on your left. For food and drink the town itself aint that great but anyone with time the area called The Headland has a top notch chippy called Verrills and a cafe on northgate called the headland cafe. for curry lovers its recommended being cooked by the thai lass called yum. breakfasts good also. its just over a mile from the ground and there is traditional boozers there as well. a little further away in the opposite direction is seaton carew. only use the almighty cod or youngs there. give the other place a swerve. a couple of traditional boozers and arcades including one with a bowling alley. will be open after the game. at the ground itself there is the centenary bar under the main stand plus the supporters run corner flag at the away end. both accept away fans. food inside the ground is the usual stuff but the portions are good. the away end known as the rink end by everyone but the sponsors holds over 900. even 50 can make a hell of a noise but the view can be poor. anyone going with really young kids might be better going in the family stand. see the ticket office pre game or ring em up. anyone who wants more info PM me as i,m sure i can help.
