Away fans are placed in the open Grosvenor Road Terrace, where just over 2,000 fans can be accommodated. A further 300 seats are made available to away supporters in the Popular Stand, which unlike the open terrace is at least covered. 


By car: Take the A64 to Scarborough and York. When you near York, join the A1237 Ring Road and continue on it until you reach the junction with the A19. Turn right at the junction and take the A19 towards York City Centre and keep going until you get to a pub on your left called the Burton Stone Inn, at which point you turn left into Burton Stone Lane. Then take the first right into Grosvenor Road for the ground.

By train: York mainline railway station is a good 20 minute walk away from the ground. People intent on using a taxi should be aware that Saturday traffic in York is best avoided. From the car park attached to the station take the new pedestrian footpath that emerges close to the Post Office building. Turn left, turn left again when you reach the river and cross the Ouse on the footbridge alongside the York-Scarborough railway line. Once over the bridge, turn left at the Abbey Guest House into Marygate car park and follow the footpath, the railway is to your left. At the far end of the car park, the footpath goes under the railway, turn right into Bootham Terrace and walk up the rise to the main road. Turn left, cross the road and Bootham Crescent is the first turning on the right. There is a newsagent's shop on this corner.


If you arrive early enough then there is street parking to be found in a number of side roads off Burton Stone Lane. Otherwise you may have to travel a further distance away from the ground as there are a number of residents only parking schemes in operation in the general area, or you could seek out a pay and display car park in the city centre and walk back out to the ground.

Thanks to for the details.
