Stevenage: Directions, Beer & Food

Recommended Posts

NOTE: This information may be out-of-date in an ever-changing world.

Stevenage F.C., The Lamex Stadium, Broadhall Way, Stevenage, Herts, SG2 8RH.


Away fans are located at one end of the ground in the all-seated Buildbase South Stand, where up to 1,400 supporters can be housed, with unobstructed view of the pitch. As you would expect from a relatively new stand, the facilities and views of the playing action are good. The low roof also allows for a good atmosphere to be generated.


The atmosphere is also aided by a drummer on the home East Terrace, who keeps the Stevenage fans going throughout most of the game. The club has a reputation of being very friendly and relaxed, with passionate non-threatening fans.


Disabled Facilities:


Parking for up to 12 cars in front of the Main Stand but contact the Club for availability and booking - Tel: 01438 223223. The area around the stadium is generally level with ramped access to the wheelchair area at the rear of the North Terrace.


For wheelchair users there are 12 allocated covered spaces at the rear of the North Terrace normally split 50/50 with the visiting club. Disabled Wheelchair supporters are advised to purchase their tickets in advance to avoid the disappointment of not being able to gain access on the day. For further details contact call 0871 8551696.


There are 4 adapted toilets at locations around the stadium. The refreshment areas are not dedicated but steward assistance is

available if required.


How to get there:


By Car:

Leave the A1 (M) at Junction 7 and take the A602 towards Stevenage. Go straight across the first roundabout and as you approach the next roundabout you can see the stadium floodlights on the right.

Car Parking:

There is a large car park opposite the Stadium, which is reported to be free.

NOTE: The car park has only one entrance/exit, so this can lead to a bottleneck after the game has finished.


By Rail:

The Lamex Stadium is approximately one mile from Stevenage station and take the footbridge into the town centre past the Gordon Craig Theatre. On foot leave the station booking hall and turn left towards the town. Take the stairs on the right before the bridge over the dual carriage way and head along the A602, Lytton Way. At the roundabout which has the police station on the right, take the second exit into Six Hills Way. At the next roundabout take the third exit (south) continuing along the A602, Monkswood Way, passing a large Asda store on your right. After about 3/4 mile (McDonald’s, Burger King, etc will be on your right) you will arrive at a roundabout and the stadium will be opposite you on the other side of the A602.


By Bus:

You can also get the Arriva No.5 bus for the 10 minute journey to the stadium, from Stop E at the nearby bus station. As the stadium is not easily spotted in the distance, ask the driver to drop you off on Monkswood Way, opposite the entrance to the retail park.


By Taxi:

There is also a taxi rank at the Station.


Where to drink:

Away fans are admitted into the spacious Social Club behind the South Stand. There is a large TV screen showing any early kick-off game.


Across the roundabout from the stadium there is a Retail Park, with a Harvester outlet called the Roaring Meg, the bar of which welcomes away fans.


Otherwise there is not much in the way of pubs near to the stadium. If you like real ale then it is worth taking the 15 minute walk to the Our Mutual Friend pub in Broadwater Crescent SG2 8EH. It is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and offers seven beers on hand pump, plus real cider/perry and pub grub. Map


If you have time on your hands, then you can take the 15-20 minute walk into the town centre, where there are plenty of pubs to be found including a Wetherspoon outlet called the Standard Bearer, which is located near to the Bus Station.


Where to eat:

The Social Club behind the South Stand serves hot and cold food.


Inside the stadium a small hut serves the usual range of food, plus chips and various French sticks and baps, including bacon and egg, but it’s all quite pricey e.g. burger £3, cheeseburgers, pies and pasties £3.50.


Across the roundabout from the stadium there is a Retail Park that has various eating outlets such as Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, Burger King and the Roaring Meg Harvester outlet.

For the impressive fans that make the trip, please use your PlayerShare WebShop when booking rail travel or accommodation. Then a commission on the back of your booking goes to PlayerShare.


Suggested site for rail travel is this link to First TransPennine Express. Nothing to do with the WebShop, but rail travellers can get a free Bite Card that gets 20% off the various concessions at mainlinee stations. Handy for a coffee, burger or a beer (at some)!


If you're staying over somewhere then this link to Hotels.com pays 8% back for us to fund a new player with.


You can use both the links above for any purchase. It doesn't have to be football related.

I know I posted this link elsewhere but belt & braces warning about possible traffic problems




Thanks for that Pete.


With Junction 7 of the A1(M) closed, it will be necessary to leave the A1(M) at Junction 8. This map should help - the car park opposite the stadium is just off the roundabout where Fairlands Valley Park is shown.
