What's it like? Away fans are tucked away in the North East corner, where there's a good view of the game. On the concourse, alcohol is available along with a wide selection of food.
Pubs and grub: 'The Brickmakers' (HU3 6JB) is opposite the stadium car park entrance. It has a big screen showing sports and a burger van outside. Nearby is 'The New Walton Club' (HU3 6JR) which costs £1 to get in. 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).
You can head for the nearby city centre, where there are plenty of pubs to be found. The 'Linnet & Lark' - now called 'The Bowery' (HU5 3QA) is a big pub with many TVs showing Sky & 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 - 'Pave Bar' (HU5 3QA) has a selection of beers from all around the world and good food. They do a 'match-day special' of pint, pie, peas and mash for £6. There's loads of parking in the streets off the avenue. Around a 15-minute walk up Walton Street is 'The Avenues' pub (HU5 3TS).
If walking to the stadium from the city centre, The Punch Hotel (HU1 3RA) is next to the Princes Quay shopping centre and is not far from the train station. 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).
Parking: The stadium has a huge car park (£5) for home and away fans. 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. The right hand exit is the quickest to leave by.
There's a Park & Ride signposted off the A63 (shared with home fans). Parking at The Hull Royal Infirmary (HU3 2JZ) is £5 for 4 hours and a 15-minute walk to the ground. The housing estate opposite the Infirmary has lots of free on-street parking space without parking restrictions.
Many areas near the stadium are residents only parking and you may be penalised with a ticket. Street parking is within a five-minute walk; pass the stadium on your left. Go over the flyover, and turn right at the now closed 'The Eagle' (HU3 2SE) then take the second right into Cholmley Street then fourth right into the Boulevard. Side streets off here have no parking restrictions. To get to the ground, walk to the top of the Boulevard and go up the pedestrian walkway to the stadium. To get home go the other way down the Boulevard, then left into Hessle Road, then the roundabout takes you onto the A63 (Clive Sullivan Way) and M62.
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 KC Stadium passing a chip shop. Cross Argyle Street and onto 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 7.44am, 7.58am, 8.28am, 8.53am, 9.28am and 9.55am for the six hour 15 minute journey. There are no trains back to Swansea after the game so a sleep-over is needed if you're taking this form of transport.
