By Car: (approx 81 miles from HW)
The recomended route to the ground is to leave the M1 at junction 15 (signposted Northampton A508). Follow signs for Northampton and after around 3 miles turn right onto the A45. Follow signs for Wellingborough until you reach junction with the A6. Turn right (s/p Kettering A6). Cross the bridge and then turn right at the next roundabout for the ground. There is parking close to the stadium.
Wellingborough is the nearest station but this around 5 miles away and the bus service to the ground is infrequent. A taxi to the ground is recommended if you arriving by train. To connect from the south travel from London St Pancras with the usual connections from High Wycombe via London Marylebone.
