BY CAR: Leave the M6 at junction 10A, and follow the M54 for its entire length before continuing on the A5 round Shrewsbury and Oswestry until the other side of Chirk. Then when the A5 goes left at a roundabout towards Llangollen, carry straight on towards Wrexham on the A483. Leave the A483 at the junction with the A541, junction 5, signposted Mold, and follow the A451 towards Wrexham town centre. The ground is then a little way along on the left hand side. Paid parking(£3)is available next to the stadium in the Glyndwr University car park.
BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT. Wrexham General station is almost alongside the ground, and the cheapest route is from Marylebone at 8.07, 9.07 or 10.07 to Birmingham Moor Street, walking to New Street (about 10 minutes) and then catching the 10.25, 11.25 or 12.25 to arrive at Wrexham at 12.00, 13.00 or 14.01 – the first and third options require an additional change at Shrewsbury. Return at 17.50, changing at Wolverhampton and Banbury, or 18.46 with an additional change at Shrewsbury. Return fare on the day is £41.80 and total journey time about three and a half hours, which, with Euston station closed over Easter, is not a lot slower than using Virgin services which cost more than double the fare. They are starting from Harrow & Wealdstone, which is on the Bakerloo line. Trains leave at 09.18, 10.14 and 11.14, taking around three and a quarter hours, changing at Crewe and Chester. Return with the same changes at 18.01, 19.01 or 20.03. As well as Euston being closed, there is a reduced service from Sutton to Victoria, with trains travelling only via West Croydon and taking nearly an hour – other Southern services from Sutton are diverted to London Bridge. There is no District Line from Wimbledon over Easter and the closure also affects the Central London section of the line. The Northern, Victoria and Bakerloo lines are all operating a normal service.
