Sunderland train station, in the city centre is a 15-minute walk from the ground. On exiting the station, turn left into High Street West and left again into Fawcett Street. Cross the bridge and turn left into Millennium Way. The away turnstiles are straight ahead. The “Stadium of Light” and “St. Peters” Metro stations both serve the stadium. Away supporters should alight at St. Peters, nearer the away end. Please note that numerous fans have been caught out by the fact that after the match, only Northbound (towards Newcastle) trains can be caught at the Stadium of Light station, while St. Peters only operates Southbound (towards Sunderland centre).
The stadium is easily accessible from both the A19 and A1 via Wessington Way (A1231).
PARKING WARNING: Parking at the stadium is limited and parking passes are sold out. On matchdays, stadium car parks are closed from five minutes before full time until 30 minutes after the final whistle. Police and local authority parking restrictions, including permit schemes, are in place on more than 60 streets surrounding the stadium and are heavily enforced.
Bus numbers 2, 3, 4, 12, 13, 15 and 16 all stop nearby. The city’s main bus station, Park Lane Interchange, is within walking distance of the stadium.
