What's it like? Away fans are located in the north-east corner. The facilities available are good and there's a great view of the game, although you are set back from the pitch. On the concourse, alcohol is available as well as a really good selection of food.


Pubs and grub: Away fans have their own bar at the stadium, The Pitch Side, right by the away fans' entrance. Cold food and snacks are sold. Alcohol is served until 2.15pm. The Park View (HU3 6JB) is opposite the stadium car park. It allows away fans in and is quite friendly. It also has a big screen showing Sky Sports and has a burger van outside.
Nearby is The New Walton Club (HU3 6JR) which charges £1 to get in. It has good, cheap beer, is a decent size and does matchday food such as burgers and chips.
Turn right out of the main car park entrance and it's down the road on the left-hand side. Further down Walton Street, on the corner with Anlaby Road, is The Boot Room (HU3 6NS)
There are loads of other pubs within a few minutes' walk, but these are for home fans only. Most Hull fans still go to pubs around Boothferry Park. These should be avoided by Swans fans. The Silver Cod, a no-go pub for away fans, is now closed. You can head for the nearby city centre, where there are plenty of pubs to be found, such as the Linnet & Lark - now called 'The Bowery' (HU5 3QA). It's a big pub with many TVs showing Sky and BT Sports. It's a 15-minute walk from the stadium, going across the pedestrian footbridge over the railway line.
There are a number of other pubs along Princes Avenue. There is Pave Bar (HU5 3QA), which has a wide selection of beers from all around the world and decent food.
They often have jazz acts performing in the evenings. There is loads of parking in the streets off the avenue. Around a 15-minute walk up Walton Street, is The Avenues pub (HU5 3TS), a Sizzling pub.
If walking to the stadium from the city centre, The Punch Hotel (HU1 3RA) is next to the Princes Quay shopping centre, near the train station, and does great homemade food. Also The Admiral of the Humber (HU1 2NT) is a Wetherspoons pub on Anlaby Road and near Hull Paragon Railway Station. On the way to the stadium there are many pubs on Spring Bank, including The Editorial (HU3 1AB). Unfortunately The Tap and Spile (HU3 1LP) is currently closed but The Polar Bear (HU3 1LR) is back open again.



Parking: The stadium has a huge car park (£5). If you get there early and want to go into the city centre, there's a park and ride bus back and forth. It can take 30 minutes to get out if you park a long way from the exits. There are two exits from the car park onto Walton Street. You exit quickest from the right-hand exit.
There's a park and ride signposted off the A63 (shared with home fans). Parking at The Hull Royal Infirmary (HU3 2JZ) is £5 for four hours and a 15-minute walk to the ground. The housing estate opposite the Infirmary has lots of free on-street parking spaces without parking restrictions.
Many fans park in the town centre car parks and walk to the stadium. The Pryme Street multi-storey car park (HU2 8PH) is open until 7.30pm. There's also an NCP car park at the end of Pryme Street and council car parks off Freetown Way.

Train: By train, the stadium is a 20-minute walk from Hull Paragon station. Turn left at the end of the platform and then left into the bus station. Walk past Tesco on your right, cross over Park Street at the traffic lights, following blue pedestrian signs to KCOM Stadium passing a chip shop. Cross Argyle Street and on to a pedestrian walkway and bridges over railway lines to stadium. For the away end turn right at the bottom of steps.
Trains to Hull from Swansea leave at 6.29am, 6.47am and 7.29am for the six-and-a-half hour journey. The 5.55pm from Hull gets into Swansea at midnight.
