Our Impressions of Deepdale

Directions to Deepdale

By Road

Exit the M6 at Junction 31 and take the first exit (Blackpool A59) at the roundabout. At the mini roundabout after about a mile next to the Hesketh Arms pub take the second exit onto Blackpool Road (Ring Road, Blackpool A583). By now you may be able to spot the floodlights, so just head towards them, but for the short-sighted and those dependent on step by step directions, carry straight on for 1.2 miles and filter left before the traffic lights into Sir Tom Finney Way (formally Deepdale Road).

By Rail

You can either walk the mile and a half to Deepdale, or take the easy option and get a taxi. To walk it, exit the station and turn right towards the Fishergate Centre and main shopping area. Walk down Fishergate, which eventually becomes Church Street somewhere near where the main shops finish and the clubs start after three quarters of a mile. You will see the Parish Church on your right hand side. When you reach the junction with the A6 cross over and the prison will be on your right and the County Arms pub on your left. Turn left so that the pub is now on your right, and then walk down Deepdale Road / Sir Tom Finney Way towards the ground which is three quarters of a mile away.

Local Area around Deepdale

Car Parking


Numerous car-parks around Deepdale but the main car-park behind the Sir Tom Finney Stand is for permit holders only, and the car park behind the Bill Shankley Stand is for season ticket holders.
The best places to try are Moor Park High School, Moor Park Car Park, Hollins Road or Deepdale County Primary School, all within 5 mins of the stadium.
The club are trying to discourage the amount of supporters parking their cars on the streets surrounding the ground to please the residents, but you can usually find some on street parking if you arrive early enough. Make sure you don't park on any of the roads immediately next to the ground however as these are closed for emergency access, and if you do your car will be towed away!

Disabled Facilities at Deepdale

For Preston North End supporters there are a small amount of spaces available on a raised platform in the Sir Tom Finney Stand, which is served by a lift. There is also just under 50 spaces at the front of the stand. The Bill Shankley Kop also has a number of spaces available at the front of the stand. This section is currently for home supporters, but will be transferred to be used by away fans upon completion of the Alan Kelly Town End.

While away supporters are housed in the Pavillion Stand meanwhile, a few spaces are made available at pitchside. Pitchside tickets for disabled fans shouldn't be hard to get hold of for most matches, but it is best to check on availability and prices by phoning the ticket office in advance.
