By Car:
You need to exit the M53 at Junction 4 and then follow the B5151 from the roundabout on leaving the motorway. The ground is signposted. If you're early enough then there's plenty of parking at the ground itself - failing that there's street parking which might be a bit of a walk.

By Train:
Rock Ferry and Birkenhead Central Stations are the closest to the ground - but are both a 15 minute walk or so to the ground.

The Sportsmans Arms is recommended for away fans and is located right next to the ground on Prenton Road West.
