Car Parking:
Not easy. It's nearly all street-parking, and a residents' parking schemes operate in roads near the ground. Try Prenton Road East and the streets round Mount Road. There is also parking by Birkenhead Technical College on Borough Road.

The Mersey Clipper, behind the main stand on Prenton Road West is the best option, it's big, welcoming and friendly. It also serves good pub grub, but gets very busy and the kitchen stops taking orders long before kick-off, get there early if you want to eat.

See pubs.
