Parking

Official car parking is available at the stadium at a cost of £5 per car but there are also a number of ‘unofficial’ car parks ranging between £2 and £5

The Gas Club has a small car park and has room for several coaches and charge £2 per car or £?? per coach. The Turnbridge WMC has a slightly larger car park which is free of charge but is a 10-15min away from the stadium.

The streets around the stadium are residential but are mostly unrestricted for on street parking other than the few streets closer to the stadium which are Permit Holder only. If you want to upset lots of local people who can't understand why you'd want to park outside their house or what on earth goes on on occasional Friday and Sunday afternoons across the river at the back of their garden then by all means use their street, otherwise don't.

Alternatively the Rock Cafe on Ramsden Street. Open from 11.30am, you can buy snacks and hot food during the day or enjoy the bar and entertainment in the evening.

The Chilli Lounge in John William Street was awarded "Best Restaurant 2010" by Huddersfield Taste Trail and offers traditional Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. It is open from 6pm. .

Fast food fans can enjoy the usual array of restaurants and takeaways, most of which are located in the southern area of the town near the shopping arcades. However Pizza Hut has recently opened at the ground and is situated next to the Odeon Cinema.

If you're planning to stay in Huddersfield for some time, the Odeon Cinema is behind the stadium in Bradley Mills Road.
