Grimsby Town FC - Blundell Park

Blundell Park Guide

Stadium Info

Blundell Park is the lowest football stadium in the United Kingdom, standing at only 2 feet above sea level. The ground is unfortunately very poor. The main stand barely stretches half the length of the field and when the wind whips in off the coast it removes any possibility of an atmosphere being created. There are a large number of supporting pillars throughout the stadium and one of the only safe places to guarantee a good view is in the lower tier of the Findus Stand.

Away Fans

Visiting supporters are situated in the Osmond stand behind one of the goals. There is space for up to 2,100 fans but a lot of seats are restricted view with the numerous amounts of supporting pillars. Facilities are ok and leg room is rather cosy. However, the atmosphere is generally very good.

Where To Drink

The Imperial Is the nearest pub to the ground but can be quite rowdy on match days and is best avoided by most visitors. It is though a huge pub and a real meeting point for Town fans. Further along Grimsby Road towards Cleethorpes is The Leaking Boot which has a history of being very welcoming to visiting supporters. Cleethorpes town centre and seafront has a number of varied pubs with The Nottingham and Willys probably the pick

There are a couple of chippies near the ground which are OK but if you feel you want the very best then you need to go a little further. Poplar Road Fisheries is on Grimsby Road at the bottom of Isaacs Hill and is a very good takeaway, as is Ernie Becketts in Cleethorpes market place.

Parking

Parking is freely available in the surrounding streets although it will get busier the closer to kick-off you arrive. If you drive along the A180 towards Cleethorpes, once you pass the stadium any of the roads and possible and fair game. The earlier you arrive, the better space you'll get.

The nearest / closest train station to Grimsby Town's Blundell Park Stadium is Cleethorpes, a twenty minute walk. You've got a choice of routes to the ground from here, either right out of the station, up the ramp, turn left until you come to a roundabout with an O'Neils pub on the Left and Bar Racuda on the right.

Here you bear right and stay on the road down Isaac's Hill (only just a hill!) until you come to another roundabout, at this point you go effectively straight on down Grimsby Road for about half a mile until you reach the ground on the R/Hand side.

    Travel: We came over with the ferry from Holland to watch Brittish football and stayed in Hull for the weekend(we also watched Hull City - Chelsea on sunday. A taxi dropped us of at Blundell Park.

    Refreshments: Before the football match we visited the local pub next to Blundell Park. Together with fans of The Mariners we had some pints.

    Impressions: Very romantic impressions. This is what we love about (non league) English football. An old ground with very friendly people. Me and my Dutch friends felt very welcome. After the match we were allowed to speak with the players of The Mariners on the pitch and made some nice pictures.

    Facilities: Because everything is so old fashioned at Blundell Park we were very impressed by the stadium facilities. Toilets were ok. We even got some drinks and food in the stadium.

    Exit: After a couple of drinks in the pub with our new friends from Grimsby we went back to Hull by taxi.

    Enjoy: Grimsby Town is definitely in our hearts. It was the first non league football match we ever watched. It felt like a first love. Great fans, friendly people all over the place and a beautiful old fashioned football ground.
