Address: Carlisle United FC,
Directions: Leave the motorway at Junction 43 and take the first exit off the roundabout. The blue roof of the Pioneer Stand can be seen on the right hand side, almost as soon as you leave the roundabout. Keep going straight ahead along Warwick Road (A69). After passing through the third set of traffic lights the club shop (Blues Store) and Hughie McIlmoyle statue marks the main entrance to the ground.
Main Car Park (home and away supporters) - From the M6 turn right at the 3rd set of traffic lights and drive through the gates and behind the Pioneer Foods Stand to enter the car park. Supporters travelling from the West can enter the car park from St Aidan’s Road via Victoria Place. Due to the location of our car park, we advise fans to check the availability of car parking facilities when the weather is bad. Cars are charged £3 to use the car park. Please note – cars will only be allowed to exit the car park after the game once all supporters have cleared the area and any away coaches have left the stadium.
Brunton Park is 1.2 miles from Carlisle Railway Station. Head out of the train station, cross the road, and locate Nando's Restaurant on the crescent shaped road adjacent to the first set of traffic lights. Walk straight down Warwick Road for about 1 mile and you will reach Brunton Park on the left hand side. A taxi rank is located just outside the Railway Station.
Take the number 76 bus from the city centre. Alight at the Lakeland Gate Inn. Head back a short distance from the direction you travelled on the bus and Brunton Park is on your right hand side.
In the away concourse, situated in the Pioneer Stand, they have a bar serving hot food and drinks with cold beverages available to visiting supporters until 15 minutes into the second half of the game.
They also have a local food stand on the West side of the stadium.
