Our Impressions of Belle Vue
The stadium currently has a capacity of 10,000. The East stand (next to SolarBowl) has covered stand with seating which runs the length of the pitch, with terracing beneath. The North terrace is a large open terrace. The West side, is open terrace similar size to east side, with a few portacabins behind (old hospitality boxes ???). The south side, has been given over to three/four tiers of hospitality / executive boxes, which given that this is non-league, is not that expensive compared to premier league football, so if you fancy treating yourself or your partner then give it a try!

Local Area around Belle Vue
There is plenty of parking within the ground for normal league games, however for bigger games you will have to park on the streets. We parked outside SolarBowl (which is next to the ground), but if a big crowd is expected then you need to get there early to get a spot here. There are spaces in the Superbowl 2000 car park, but this gets full really early and they also get a bit miffed! Most of the side streets are restricted on match days. One popular spot is on Sugar Lane near to the cemetery but again fills quickly. Wakefield town centre is probably your best bet, but you face a 15 minute walk to the ground
(... or catch a bus... see 'directions')
