How do I get to the ground?
Postcode is DY10 1NB.
Leave the M5 at junction 3, taking the A456 towards Kidderminster. As you reach Kidderminster, turn left at the traffic lights at the junction with the A449. Turn right at the next set of lights and head towards the town centre, you’ll pass the Severn Valley Railway on the left. Turn left onto Hoo Road, just before the roundabout and the ground is on this road on the left.
Where is the best place to park?
Parking at the ground is extremely limited.
You can park at the Severn Valley Railway (10-minute walk) for £4 – there are no events scheduled so parking should be ok for most.
There are also 220+ parking spaces at Kidderminster Train Station for £3.
Street parking is limited around the ground – watch out for restrictions.
What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
Kidderminster train station is only half a mile/10-minute walk away from the stadium.
Recommended pubs for away fans?
Town fans do not have access to the Harriers Arms at the ground.
Kidderminster Harriers have set up a mobile bar outside in the South Stand car park that will open from 1pm.
There is a small social club on Hoo Road, that may let a small number of away fans in, there is a minimal charge to enter for non-members.
The King & Castle is adjacent to Kidderminster train station so about a 10-minute walk away from the ground.
Weavers Real Ale House, on Comberton Hill (10-minute walk) is only a small pub and doesn’t serve lager.
In the town centre, you have Pennies, who also do food. The town centre is a good 15-20 minute walk away and uphill when you head to the ground.
Is food available in the area?
There isn’t a lot around the area of the ground itself. There are lots of chains and local places in the town centre.
Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?
There is a cash machine on Hoo Road but it charges for withdrawals.
Otherwise, the nearest free one is at Morrisons supermarket, a 12-minute walk away or there are plenty in the town centre.
What food and drink is available at the stadium?
The catering options are different since we last visited due to a change in suppliers.
Food is now burgers and hot dogs etc, with hot and cold drinks also available.
Those with allocated seating will have access to a bar area – open when the turnstiles do until KO and then at half time.
Those in the South Stand will have access to the mobile bar in the car park. This will close at KO and reopen at halftime.
Inside the ground is CASH ONLY.
Is a programme available?
Programmes are £3 and are on sale throughout the ground.
What is the flag/drum policy?
Flags are allowed – please follow stewards instructions where necessary.
A Drum is also no problem – again please work with stewards on arrival.
