There is one bus that stops at the bottom of the road, the number 58 that travels between Bootle New Strand and Marian Square. Bus stops at Aintree Racecourse or Aintree Station are around a five minute walk to the ground.

Parking Facilities: The ground has a good number of parking spaces available inside the gates. However, the club would like to advise that these spaces do get taken very quickly on a match day and would like to remind anyone travelling via car to arrive at the ground in plenty of time to kick off. If parking on the industrial estate, please be considerate and do not block entrances.

Ground Facilities: The club currently has both a café and bar. The café is located next to the turnstiles as you first come in. The café sells a variety of different hot food items such as burgers, hot dogs, and chips as well as tea, coffee, and Bovril.
As well as an onsite café, the club also has a fully licensed bar serving a variety of alcoholic and non- alcoholic beverages. The stairway leading to the clubhouse is clearly visible from inside the ground.
But for those coming for the first time should take a left when entering through the turnstiles.
In addition, the TDP Solicitors Stadium also has over 100 covered seats which are located behind the far end of the goal. Finally, the club also has a 7-a- side and 5-a- side pitches, both, providing there are prior bookings, are open on matchdays for those of the younger generation to have a kick about on.
