Directions
After initially joining the M606, head west on the M62 motorway. Stick on the M62 motorway until it turns into the M60. Leave the M62/M60 at junction 17. Follow the signs for A56 Bury for approximately four miles. As you pass the Swan & Cemetery pub and some playing fields on your left, the turning onto Gigg Lane will be on your right.
 
Parking
Please be aware if you choose to use on-street parking this Saturday, most roads around Gigg Lane are strictly resident permits only and wardens do usually patrol the area.
 
Rail
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 (Victoria or Piccadilly). 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. The Metrolink has a frequent service to both Manchester mainline stations but please double-check on Metrolink (0161) 205 2000, and Rail Enquiries on (0345) 484 950. Supporters can also visit the Metrolink (HERE) and National Rail Enquiries (HERE) websites.
 
Bus
Nos. 90, 92, 134, 135 and 137 run every ten minutes down Manchester Road past the end of Gigg Lane.
 
Food & Drink
There are a number of pubs on the main Manchester Road (A56), including the nearby Swan & Cemetery. The Bury FC Social Club is also normally open on a match-day, although non-members (such as away fans) are usually charged £1.00 entry. Woodfields Retail Park (BL9 5BY), Moorgate Retail Park (BL9 7AQ) and Mill Gate Shopping Centre (BL9 0QQ) are all roughly five minutes away via car and offer places to eat and drink. There is also an ASDA supermarket (BL9 0RN) a similar distance away from Gigg Lane. Bury town centre is around a 15-minute walk from the ground. 
 
Distance
Bury's Gigg Lane is just under 38 miles away from the Northern Commercials Stadium via car. This would mean approximately a one-hour travel time (traffic dependent). 
 
Cash Machines
The nearest cash machines by Gigg Lane are situated by the local Post Office and Co-operative, both on Parkhills Road (BL9 9AX). Cash points are also available at the Woodfields Retail Park and Mill Gate Shopping Centre.
