Travel Directions: By Road
Whether approaching Hamilton from North or South, leave the M74 at junction 5, normally signed for East Kilbride. This will take you onto the Raith Interchange. (If you're coming down from East Kilbride or using the Bellshill bypass to arrive from the East then you should also use the same roundabout).
From there, follow the signs for Hamilton, which should take you onto Bothwell Road, past the Cat and Dog Home and Racecourse on your left and the Fire Brigade HQ on your right. At the first set of traffic lights, turn right into Caird Street towards the Retail Park. The two large car parks on your left are the designated football parking, is also used for visiting supporters buses.
To get to the stadium, turn right into New Park St and then continue onto Auchinraith Avenue past Morrisons. if you turn left at the next mini roundabout, the short road leads you to the stadium car park, although spaces on match day are only available to club officials, guests and those displaying a current blue badge. There is parking at Morrison's (lower tier) for media, the elderly, and on a first come first served basis. This car park is adjacent to the away turnstiles.
The stadium is right beside Hamilton West station. There is a path connecting station platform to club car park. If travelling from Glasgow Central, take a train from the low level platform to "Motherwell, via Blantyre", or to "Larkhall". The trains normally leave at 8 and 38 minutes past the hour and the journey time is just under 25 minutes. There are also limited stop trains running to Larkhall from Glasgow Central leaving at 27 and 57 minutes past the hour. The journey time for these trains is around 22 minutes. Don't use Hamilton Central station as it's not near the stadium!
The match programme, priced £2.50, will be available for sale at the turnstiles. This will be available in alternative large print or e-mail format for disabled or visually impaired spectators. Please contact the club for details.
