What's The  Llanelian Road Football Ground Like?
The ground is situated a couple of miles out of Colwyn Bay. Set into a hill side it has a pleasant rural setting. On one side are two simple looking covered seated stands, that sit each side of the half way line. Only a few rows high they have a number of supporting pillars running across the front of them. Opposite is a new all seated stand which was built on a former open terrace in 2013. Although only five rows high, it is covered and is tidy looking, having glassed areas at the back for press etc.. It doesn't have any supporting pillars which is good, however there is the base of a floodlight pylon situated right in front of it, near the half way that could impeded your view. At the Club Bar End is a small flat open standing area, whilst opposite there is a small covered terrace. This terrace runs for around half the width of the pitch and sits directly behind the goal. It has a number of supporting pillars running across its front. The stadium is completed with a set of four modern floodlights.

Where To Drink?

There is the Club Lounge bar at the ground which welcomes away supporters. Otherwise half a mile away at the bottom of Llanelian Road (in the direction of the A55) is the Marine Hotel and pub. If you turn right at the Marine Hotel and go into Old Colwyn (along the Abergele Road) then after a quarter of a mile you will reach the Red Lion pub which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

If arriving by train or decide to go into Colwyn Bay before the game, there near to the railway station on Princes Drive is a Wetherspoons outlet called the Picture House, which is also featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

By Train

Colwyn Bay Railway Station is situated just under two miles away from the ground. It is served by trains from Manchester Piccadilly, Crewe and Birmingham New Street. Either grab a taxi or if you fancy walking (but please note that most of the route is uphill):

As you come out of the station entrance turn left and and end of the station buildings you should see a pedestrian pathway/cycleway go down to the left. Take this pathway down to the promenade which runs along the sea front. Turn right along the promenade and after about half a mile turn right (signposted Old Colwyn). Proceed under the A55 bridges and continue straight on up the hill. At the next roundabout that you reach take the second exit (by the Marine Hotel and pub) onto Llanelian Road in the direction of  Betws-yn-Rhos. The ground is half a mile further on uphill. located on the right hand side.
