GETTING THERE

By Road…

The Pirelli Stadium is located just off the A38. Exit the A38 at Clay Mills and follow Derby Road until you reach the second island. Take a right turn at the island and then right again into the car park.

By Train…

Burton Railway Station is situated half a mile West of the Town Centre, past the Breweries on Station Street, on Borough Road. The station is a 30-minute walk to the Pirelli Stadium.

PARKING

Car parking is available at the Pirelli Stadium for just £5 per vehicle on a first-come first-served basis. Supporters can also park in the Pirelli Factory car park, just off Derby Road priced at £3 per vehicle with all proceeds going to charity (weekend parking only).

ENTERTAINMENT & REFRESHMENTS

The Pubs…

The nearest pub is probably the 'The Beech Inn' which is around a ten minute walk, up the A5121 Derby Road (going in the opposite direction to Burton town centre) on the left. You can also park your car there at a cost of £5.

Further on past the Beech pub on the same side of the road is a McDonalds outlet.

Otherwise, there is the Great Northern pub, which serves Burton Bridge Beers, along with a guest ale. This pub is located on Wetmore Road, which leads off the roundabout near to the stadium entrance, go up and over the railway bridge and the pub is on the left.

If you particularly like your real ale then just under a half a mile away from the stadium is the Burton Town Brewery. Situated in a small industrial unit in Falcon Close (off Hawkins Lane, which itself also runs off the main roundabout by the ground), it opens its doors before matches and has available real and craft ales, lagers, cider and wine. 

Inside the ground…

There are bar and refreshment facilities within the away stand but these will close 30 minutes before kick-off for maximum capacity games.

They offer a range of pies, burgers, hot dogs and confectionery and both alcoholic and soft drinks which can be purchased for consumption in this area.
