Away days | Preston North End

29th January 2020

If you are heading to Lancashire to cheer on the Swans at Deepdale, here is a guide to help with your travel.

Preston North End v Swansea City

Date: Saturday, February 1 (3pm).

Address: Deepdale, Sir Tom Finney Way, Preston, PR1 6RU

Distance from Liberty Stadium: 236.7 miles


The Bill Shankly stand holds up to 3,000 fans behind the goal. The concourses have TVs. Cheeseburgers, hot dogs, pies and a pie and a pint deal are available.


Watch for speed cameras around the stadium. Moorfields School (PR1 6AA) has parking (£5); otherwise it’s a case of finding street parking.

After the game, it’s quicker to head down Deepdale Road instead of Blackpool Road. This brings you out five miles south on the motorways, avoiding the congestion on Blackpool Road.


Preston station is 1.5 miles from the ground, with some good pubs on the way (a taxi direct to the ground will cost around £5).

Trains leave Swansea at 6.49am, 7.47am and 8.54am for the five-hour journey. Trains back are at 5.17pm and 6:17pm, getting in at 10.05pm and 11.16 respectively.


Blackpool isn’t too far away, with the many attractions and nightlife, while Manchester and Liverpool, are also within easy reach.
