Getting there
By Car: (approx 165 miles from HW)
Join M1 by your preferred route and travel north until juntion 35A. (This is not the most direct route from the South but avoids the potential of getting stuck in city centre traffic). At motorway roundabout follow signs for Manchester A616 and then after about 1 mile at another roundabout take the 1st exit onto the A61 (signposted Sheffield North). Following the A61 will lead directly to Hillsborough (just over 5 miles). The Leppings Lane roundabout at the bottom of the hill is just north of the ground and there is street parking around this area.
Train: Sheffield station is 3 and a half miles from the ground. Connections from High Wycombe are via London Kings Cross/St Pancras. Check for specific times and connections. Buses and trams go towards Hillsborough from Sheffield stattion.
