How to get there by car

There are several alternatives here, depending on which junction of M6 you are exiting from.

Travelling North on M6 junction 10A - M54 junction 2

Take the A449 Stafford Road to Wolverhampton. As you approach the Town Centre, you will come to an island (Halfords on your left), take the 3rd exit (not the town centre exit) into Waterloo Road. Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club is approximately half a mile along on the left signposted 'Molineux Centre'.

From the North and East
Exit M6 at junction 12 and keep following signs to Wolverhampton A449. Straight on under M54. Straight on for nearly 3 miles over 3 roundabouts, following signs to Molineux Centre, 4th roundabout at British Gas Works, straight on, under 2 railway bridges, to 5th roundabout (Five Ways). Take 3rd exit (Molineux Centre, University North) into Waterloo Road. Ground is about half a mile away on left.
(for car park take 2nd exit at Five Ways Roundabout onto Lower Stafford Street, and turn left onto Ring Road.)


From South East

Take M25 to the junction with the M1 and then proceed following signs M1/The North. At junction 19 join the M6 following the signs The North West. Exit M6 at junction 10a. follow signs to Wolverhampton A454, Dudley, onto A454 dual carriageway. (watch out for speed cameras) After 1.3 miles, exit at the Keyway junction. At next 2 roundabouts follow signs for Wolverhampton A454 onto the Willenhall Road A454. After just over 2 miles follow road round to left, onto Middle Cross, to roundabout. 4th exit onto ring road, ground is about half a mile on right.

Alternatively you can take the M40 up to the M6 junction.

Parking
Multi-storey car parks are available in the town centre (10 minutes walk). Long stay car parks are signposted orange.

Police advise is to leave cars in Faulkland Street car park (140 spaces 1.70 all day) They advise against parking in the car park behind the Wanderer pub by the ground, as many vehicles have been vandalised.

Street parking only, around the ground.


Trains / Buses/ Taxis

From Station (about 1/2 a mile) straight out of main entrance, over bridge. Keep left and under covered walkway into Lichfield Street, pass Grand Theatre on left, at lights turn right towards Prince’s Square continue between Varsity pub and Midland & General. Straight on, to Ring road. Cross at lights and turn left towards ground.

Take care upon leaving the ground for possible “unfriendly Wolves fans” on the ramp over the tunnel. There is a way of avoiding both the tunnel & the ramp by it. When you come out of the away end instead of turning right/straight on for the obvious route out (via the tunnel/town centre), turn to the left. Walk the length of the John Ireland stand (the one running the length of the pitch). At the end of the stand turn right & there is a small hill that runs up towards the main road. Walk to the top of this then cross straight over. This will bring you onto what looks like a scrap of wasteland, but it's actually the away coach car park (so often policed). Walk through this aiming North East to your original point of entry & within a minute you'll end up on the ring road. Rather than crossing the ring road, keep on the left hand side of it & skirt around the town centre. After 5-10 mins of "heads down" walking, you'll come to the station. Not guaranteed but safer than the normal route.

Taxi from station costs around 2.00

Buses run from stand R of bus station (near railway station). catch no 503, 504 or 506 which pass the ground.

If using buses in the area it is wise to have the correct money before boarding. The driver doesn't handle the money, it is dropped into a funnel-like machine!?!?!



Disabled facilities
Disabled allocation: 15 spaces for disabled fans, in Jack Harris Stand free entry for disabled, 8.00 for helpers
Facilities for the blind: Headphones available
Tickets available from Crystal Palace box office
There are some disabled parking bays at Molineux, which may be used if available, if not, fans can be dropped off outside the stand.

Pubs

There are a number of pubs dotted around the ground, but they tend to be 'members only' for home fans. There isn't a technically 'safe' pub to drink at in or around Wolves city centre which is only a 5 minute walk from the ground. Even when walking around the town in colours you can find yourself the subject of plenty of verbal abuse.

However one or two of the pubs can be ok – you just have to take your chance on the day.

Best to go incognito and perfect that brummie drawl for moments of
crisis! The following pubs have doormen and none will allow away colours - although some people were able to get into them last year: The Royal London, The Varsity & Hogshead


The Great Western, behind Wolverhampton train station has been recommended – and several of us went there last year before the game. It serves excellent local beer and food. If Wolverhampton station had two exits, the pub would be directly outside the back exit. Unfortunately, you have to go all round the station to get to it. Come out of the only exit, but do not keep ahead past the taxis etc. Instead turn right, then right again down a tunnel going back under the station. Turn right at the exit of the tunnel, and keep along by the tracks to the pub.
However, remember that Wolverhampton is still stuck in the 70's, and it is not safe to show away colours anywhere. While the pub's clientele are fairly normal people, the route to and from it lends itself to ambush. Be very careful!


The Moreton Arms - Stafford Road
Full menu served 12-2 & 6-8.30. Open all day from 12. Outdoor children’s play area

The Black Horse - Thomson Avenue
Huge pub, all meals cost 2.99, served 12-2.30 & 6-8pm. Open all day from 12. Disabled facilities.

The Spread Eagle - Birmingham New Road
Family-orientated pub. Home-cooked food served 12-2.30 & 5.30-9.30pm. Open all day.

The North Wolverhampton Working Men’s Club - Oxley Road
Welcomes football fans & families for small fee (about 20p). Food available. Open all day from 12

The Staffordshire Knot - Birmingham New Road
Large pub and restaurant.

The Moon Under Water on Lichfield Street, a Wetherspoons house has
improved enourmously

Pubs off the black country route are recommended


For a superb Black Country pint - strictly speaking Wolverhampton is not
in the Black Country) and pub fans are recommended the Vine in Brierly Hill,
the home of Bathams Beers. Pork Scratchings and pork pies are highly
recommended.

There is also a move afoot to go to Birmingham pre-match to The Slurping Toad – it’s in Hurst Street and does good food- it’s not far from New Street Station

The good news is, Wolves do, eventually, now sell alcohol inside the ground.

Food
Burger vans around the ground. The main shopping area has others to choose from, e.g. Pizza Hut, KFC. Also right next to the ground is an Asda, which also has it’s own small ‘cafe’.

In the Town centre there are shops that sell Roast sandwiches. Pork,
Turkey, & beef with the choice of stuffing and gravy. They are cheap and
worth every penny on a winters day.

The catering facilities within the ground are pretty good, serving such wonders as the infamous 'Balti Chicken Pie' and even slices of Pizza, plus Cornish Pasties, pies, hotdogs & burgers.

I've posted this elsewhere, but realise it might be helpful in this thread as well. I received the following e-mail from West Midlands Police today.

"Iain

Following the disorder at last season's match the game was reclassified at the start of the season and it is a "Policed Match".

There will be a visible police presence inside and outside the stadium. This will ensure that there is no recurrence of the disgraceful behaviour by so-called football fans, and that the majority of the supporters can enjoy the game.
