|What's The CNG Stadium Like?|
|A largely open ground which
is surrounded by a lot of greenery giving an overall
pleasant look. On one side is the newish looking
main stand. This covered seated stand comprises six
rows of seating and runs for around half the length
of the pitch. The view is good from this area as
there are no supporting pillars or floodlight pylons
to hinder your view. On one side of this stand is an
even smaller seated stand, which is used to house
Directors and Sponsors, whilst the other side has a
flat standing area. Opposite is a small covered
terrace that has a row of three floodlight pylons
situated in front of it. Both ends are unused as
such i.e. there is no terrace or seating, just small
tarmac areas for spectators to stand on by the
perimeter fence. One end has a small car park,
whilst at the other is situated the Club House Bar.
|Where To Drink?|
a Club House at the ground called ‘Nineteen
Nineteen Bar’ which allows in visiting fans.
Othwerwise the nearest pub is the Woodlands, which
is a short distance back down the A661 Wetherby
Road, heading away from town.
|How To Get There And Where To Park|
the A1(M) at Junction 47 and take the A59 towards
Knaresborough. Then take the A658 towards
Bradford/Harrogate. At the second roundabout turn
right onto the A661 towards Harrogate. You will pass a
Sainsburys and then after the lights with the
Woodlands pub on one corner, then the entrance to the
ground is a just a bit further down on the right.
There is small car park at the ground (cost £1), behind one end of the ground. This may seem a convenient spot to park your car, but then you just spend the match watching to see if you car gets hit by a wayward shot! Otherwise there is a pay and display car park at the adjacent hospital. Please be aware that there is a residents only parking scheme in operation on roads close to the ground.

Although there are two
local stations near to the ground; Hornbeam Park
Station (for Leeds) and Starbeck (for York) you are
more likely to end up at Harrogate station itself,
which is just over a mile away from the ground. It
is served by trains from Leeds and York.
Remember if travelling by train then you can normally save on the cost of fares by booking in advance. Visit the thetrainline website to see how much you can save.
