Away Day Planner: November & December 2019

Dom Betts 10th November 2019

As we go into an international break, our very own Dom Betts is here to give you the lowdown on the best way to follow Fulham away for the rest of 2019.

Swansea

Trains

Adult – £87.00
Adult (With Railcard) – £57.40
Child – £43.50

There is a 3:59am train back if you fancy going back after a night out but twin rooms can be found in the city centre for around £50. I recommend the Dolphin SA1 for being closest to centre.

Where to Park

As expected, most of the parking around the stadium is for resident permit holders only. Away mini-buses and coaches can park behind the North Stand, where you will be sitting, in a fenced off area at a cost of £20 for a coach or £10 for a mini-bus.

It is advised against parking at the retail park nearby because you could end up with a ticket or be clamped, which could either dampen a great day or make a bad day worse.

There is a park and ride facility located at Felindre old steel works site. This appears on signs off Junction 46 shortly after leaving the M4. It costs £6 to park there per car and away supporters have dedicated buses to and from the stadium. Buses wait after the game to take you back to your car.

Where to Drink

  1. Due to being located close to a retail park, it is advised to drink in the city centre. The Bank Statement is the Wetherspoons, there’s a Walkabout, but if something a bit different tickles your fancy give the No Sign Bar a try.
  2. Just a few minutes walk away from the stadium on Llangyfeleach Road, is the Plough and Harrow, which admits visiting fans.
  3. Within ten minutes walk of the stadium is a newly opened microbrewery called Boss Brewing which serves great beers and burgers. You can also park there for free if available.

Preston

Fastest/Cheapest Trains

Adult – £77.00/£68.00
Adult (With Railcard) – £56.90/£44.90
Child – £43.00/£34.00

There isn’t a train back so you’d have to stay the night or book the club coach for the return leg. Twin rooms can be found for around £50

Where to Park

Parking for cars is available for £5 a car at Moorfields School. The car park is manned by volunteers from the school and all proceeds go into school funds. Just follow the directions above and at the last set of traffic lights continue straight on for about 200 yards, and you will see the school on the left near Moor Park

You can take your chances with on-street parking around the Blackpool Road area.

Where to Drink

  1. There is not a great deal in the way of pubs in close proximity to the ground. However there are a couple of nearby social clubs that welcome away fans. First there is St Gregory’s Catholic Club, which is around a five minute walk away on Blackpool Road. Secondly, there is the Moor Park Sports and Social Club, situated around ten minutes walk away from Deepdale, at the junction of Blackpool Road and Garstang Road across from Moor Park (PR1 6AD).
  2. If you arrive by train I would recommend the Vic and Station as it’s right by the train station once you come out 79 Fishergate, Preston PR1 2UH
  3. If Wetherspoons interests you, the Grey Friar 144 Friargate, Preston PR1 2EJ is your best bet

Brentford

Where to Park

There is no parking at the ground for supporters. Plus there is a residents only parking scheme in operation on roads near Griffin Park,

Some roads in the area (such as Somerset Road, which is off the A3002 Boston Manor Road) do also allow pay and display parking at a cost of £1 for 30 minutes, so you would be looking at a cost of £6 for three hours.

Where to Drink

  1. The New Inn is the favoured pub for away supporters out of the three by the ground
  2. Many people choose to drink in Putney then get the train across, to be nearest to the station you’re probably best drinking at the Fox & Hounds. 

Luton

Where to Park (SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS BOXING DAY)

Please note that there is a residents only parking scheme in operation near to the ground, so you will have to travel a little further away to find street parking. 

You can  park at Beech Hill Conservative Club (LU4 8HZ) at a cost of £5 (payable inside the Club, or you can by phone at a cost of £6). 

Otherwise, there is a large multi-storey car park at Luton Railway Station

Where to Drink

A good place to drink is the Beech Hill Conservative Club on Leagrave Road, which welcomes both home and away supporters. It has a large car park (which costs £4) and offers reasonably priced beer.18B Leagrave Rd, Luton LU4 8HZ.

The Bricklayers Arms is a proper old fashioned type pub. It is a friendly pub with a mixture of home and away fans. Two rooms, each with Sky Sports TV. 16-18 High Town Rd, Luton LU2 0DD

In the town centre there are a number of pubs including a Wetherspoons outlet on Bridge Street called the White House.

Hull

Trains

Adult – £37.50
Adult (With Railcard) – £24.75
Child – £18.75

Where to Park

The stadium has its own massive car park right next to the stadium, with access from Walton Street. It is floodlit, with a covered surface (that is, not a mud bath) and open to home and away supporters alike. If you get there early and want to go into the City centre, there is a park and ride bus to and from the car park. The cost of parking at the stadium is £5.

The most convenient car park in the city centre is the Pryme Street multi-storey car park, which is open to 7.30pm.

Where to Drink

  1. The Park View pub virtually opposite the stadium car park entrance allows in away fans. It has a good atmosphere and the Hull fans there were friendly. It also has a big screen showing Sky Sports and a burger van outside’57-65 Walton St, Hull HU3 6JB
  2. Bowery. It has lots of TVs showing Sky Sports, making it perfect to watch the early or late kick off games. It is a 15 minute walk away from the stadium, going across the pedestrian footbridge over the railway line. 30-32 Princes Ave, Hull HU5 3QA
  3. The Wetherspoons outlet in the town centre near the station is the Admiral of the Humber. 1 Anlaby Rd, Hull HU1 2NR
