Official Palace Travel.....

Coaches:

Coach is 16.00 for gold season ticket holders and 18.00 for season

By Car:

From M1 - exit M1 junction 33 (signposted Sheffield (Centre),
Rotherham A630). At roundabout follow signs to 'Sheffield Centre
A630' onto the A630 dual carriageway. At Victoria Quays Roundabout
after 5.3 miles follow signs for 'City Centre A61'. At Park Square
Roundabout after 0.2 miles take 3rd exit (Ring Road, Chesterfield
A61) into Sheaf Street. Pass Railway Station on the left on to
Sheaf Square roundabout. Take 1st exit (Ring Road, Chesterfield
A61, Bramall Lane), turn right at next lights (Ring Road, Bakewell
A621) into Shoreham Street. Straight ahead at first set of lights
(Ring Road, Bramall Lane) and straight on at next. Ground is on
right hand side after 0.1 miles.

Or leave M1 at junction 34 and go towards Sheffield City Centre. At
the inner ring road follow signs for A621 Baslow. Ground is of a
mile away.

From Chesterfield (A61) - at first roundabout on edge of Sheffield
go straight on (signposted Sheffield A61, Lowedges) at Meadowhead
roundabout go straight on (City centre A61). Carry on A61 for 3
miles - down a long hill, past Bridge Inn on RHS and over river
bridge. At lights bear right into Queen's Road. Turn left just
after Earl of Arundel and Surrey pub (City Centre A621, Barnsley
A61). Take left fork where road divides - this is Bramall Lane.

Parking:

Parking is not easy around the ground as it is a built up area, but
you should be able to park in a street within at least 10 minutes
walk.

Directions from Railway Station:

To go straight to the ground turn left out of station - right fork
after 100 yards & keep going.

To get to Sheffield city centre, come out of the main station exit
and turn right, cross at the pedestrian crossing (towards the big
Sheffield Hallam University student's union with the sign 'Welcome
to Sheffield'). Turn right to get to the main bus station- 5 mins
walk (if you want to go straight to the ground), or left to get to
the city centre. Follow the path round and take the next pedestrian
crossing towards 'The Howard' pub (Mansfield). This is a big black
and white building. To get to the city centre from here, go up the
hill (steep narrow road) with the university on your right, and
another pub on your left. Keep walking up the steep hill until you
get to the main road (with the Novotel hotel opposite). Cross this
road by walking to your right until you get to the pedestrian
crossing (by the space age looking university library -'The Adsetts
Centre'). Cross the road, and turn right- ( or left to get to
another great pub normally full of fans- 'the Yorkshire Grey')-
until you get to the Crucible (perhaps the most famous sight in
Sheffield and mecca for snooker fans).You can perhaps get a drink
in the Crucible bar (where you can drink Stones- the local
Sheffield brew).

To carry on into the centre, turn left at the Crucible and walk
across
the pedestrianised square and head up the alley with the big church
on
your right. This takes you into the heart of the city

The ground is about a 15-25 minute walk from the station, or there
are taxis, or buses from the bus station (directions above) buses
13, 15, 15, 18, 252 & 253 run from Arundel Gate (opposite Crucible
theatre) no 39 runs from the bus station. There are always plenty
of black cabs at the station, which would cost just over 3. The
walk into town above takes only about 10-15 mins, but it does
involve a very steep hill... Those with restricted access, may wish
to consider a bus or the supertram which is at the back of the
station (platform 8 I believe). You pay on the tram, and the stop I
would recommend for the city centre is 'Castle Square'. However, no
trams go to directly to Bramall Lane the nearest stop is Granville
Road, about 3 minutes walk from Bramall Lane

Recommended Pubs:

Unfortunately, not many of the good Sheffield pubs are near the
station or United's ground

The Red Lion, 109 Charles Street (0114 272 4997) between Arundel
Gate and Arundel Street -10 minutes walk from the ground (between
the station & the ground) The pub is a decent football friendly pub
serving real ale plus food at lunchtime. Kids are welcome so long
as they go in the conservatory.

The Howard Pub (Mansfield) 37 Howard Street - In terms of pubs,
most away supporters use the Howard which is opposite the station.
The bitters are Mansfield and Mansfield Smooth (nice) or Riding
bitter. The Howard serves decent food, and there is a pool table
and various games machines. Breakfast served from 10am. Lunches 11-
4. Disabled facilities Open all day for midweek games

The Globe is further up the same hill and is usually full of Palace
fans when we've been there before. They do a great cheap range of
burgers/dinners in there.

The other alternative is to head into town(5 minute walk from the
station), where there are plenty of pubs to cater for all tastes.

Rutland Arms, 86 Brown Street (0114 272 9003) - this pub is also
between the station and the football ground and serves a good range
of real ales. It also has an award-winning garden, apparently.

The Golden Lion (69 Alderson Road) - small fan friendly pub about
50 yards from the away entrance - lets in away fans! Sandwiches
served. TV. Families welcome. Open 11.30-3.30 & from 5.30 for
midweek games

The Royal Hotel, Abbeydale Road - Enormous pub, good matchday
atmosphere. Bar snacks served 12-2.30 and on a Saturday after match
till 8pm. Also a restaurant with meals from around 3 quid. Pool
table, snooker, big screen TV, familes welcome. Open all day.

Champs (315-319 Ecclesall Road (about 3/4 mile from Bramall Lane)
Meals & snacks available all day from 12. Families
welcome/children's menu. 49 TV's Open all day from 11.30.

There is another pub - the Penny Black - you walk out of the
station - turn right - through the bus station - out the other end
and the pub is across the road - usually a few Palace fans at
previous games in Sheffield etc.

There is either the city centre (Weatherspoons, RSVP, All Bar 1),
West Street or Division Street. To get to west street, get on a
blue tram at the station, pay 1 for a all day ticket, and then
continue to the West Street Stop. There are loads of pubs here, the
Varsity, Walkabout Inn, Hallamshire Hotel, Rat and Parrott are all
recommended. Division Street runs parrell to West Street, and has
some more 'upmarket' bars. to return to Brammell Lane, simply get
onto a blue tram, and get off at 'Granville Road/ Sheffield College
(next stop from station)'.

Food:

A hot roast pork sandwich with crackling and apple sauce can be
bought from Cooplands bakers (a true Sheffield delight). There are
about 2 or 3 branches in the city centre. There are also a
selection of the usual restaurants in the city centre (a
Macdonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut).

There is also a mobile burger van outside the John Street Stand.

London Road has lots of takeaways, although best not to wear
colours.
