Alternatively, Southport Station offers a longer twenty-minute walk or a bus option, with the number 44 departing from Eastbank Street, costing £2.30 for a ten-minute ride to Haig Avenue. Train travelers from the south might prefer routing through Liverpool for potentially quicker and cheaper travel.

For those driving, different routes cater to various starting points. From the north, the M6 to Junction 28 through the A59 / A565 leads to the ground. Southern travelers can take the M6 to Junction 26, then follow the M58 and A570 directly to the venue. An alternative southern route avoiding Ormskirk involves the M62 to the M57 and the A5758, passing notable landmarks and offering clear signage towards the ground. Parking is restricted to the streets surrounding the venue, as the club’s own lot is reserved for players and officials.
