Car Parking:
Street parking is scarce, and often cars are allowed to park on one side of the road only. Try West Street, Compton Lane or the roads off Cross Street.
The school on Cross Street (opposite the visitors' turnstiles) has space for 400 cars, there is a charge.
Large car park at the town hall. This is a pay and display car park during the day, but free at night.
Town centre car parks. Try the one in the large roundabout at the end of Saltergate

There are several pubs along Saltergate and all tend to welcome visiting fans.

There's the KFC on the corner of Foljambe Street and Chatsworth Road and several chip shops on Chatsworth Road.
