Away Day Guide: North Ferriby United

  • Men's

As part of our ‘Away Day Guide’ feature for the official website Bromley supporter Will Bains provides us with a fans insight for our trip to North Ferriby United this coming Saturday, 29th October.

It’s a new ground for us this week as we travel to newly promoted North Ferriby United.

Pub options in North Ferriby itself are very limited since it is a small place, although the Duke of Cumberland pub looks like it will do the job perfectly well. However, while on the north bank of the Humber, it would be rude not to take in a trip to Hull as it gears up to be UK City of Culture 2017.

There are plenty of drinking establishments in the city for before or after the game. The Minerva is an iconic dockside pub with an array of rooms that offer excellent views across the marina (and it apparently has the “smallest pub room in the country”). Ye Olde White Harte is another option, and is similarly a pub steeped in history, laying claim to be the location of the start of the English Civil War.

The Humber Bridge is probably worth a drive across for anyone going by car. Sadly the ferry from one side of the Humber to the other no longer seems to exist, so the only way to cross the estuary will be by the bridge. However, it is also open to cyclists and pedestrians if you have an irresistible urge to cross what was once the longest single span suspension bridge in the world (it’s now the eight longest according to Wikipedia).

Admission Prices:

  • Adults: £15
  • Concessions: £8
  • Under 16s: £4

Address: Grange Lane, Church Road, North Ferriby, HU14 3AB

Directions:

By train: Hull Trains run direct services between King’s Cross and Doncaster, Selby, Brough and Hull. To travel to Ferriby station itself will require a change of train at one of these stations. The ground is a short walk from Ferriby station: exit from the Platform 1 side and take the first right onto New Walk. Follow the road to the end and turn right onto Church Road. After a short distance, the entrance to the ground will be on the left.

By car: The most straightforward route is to travel up the A1/A1(M) to junction 35, then the M18, M62 then A63 towards Hull. After Brough, there will be an exit signposted for North Ferriby. Take this, follow the signs into town then after the Duke of Cumberland pub, turn right into Church Road. The ground is on the left a little further along this road.

Alternatively, to travel via the Humber Bridge, leave the A1 at Newark and take the A46 towards Lincoln, where signs will appear for the Humber Bridge (A15). Aside from a short section on the M180, the A15 will take you straight across the bridge. Once on the north side, take the first exit at the roundabout then head straight over at the next roundabout, following signs for Leeds. Before reaching the A63, take the turning on the left signposted North Ferriby and follow the road to the outskirts of the town. At this point, take the left into Church Road and the ground will be further along on the left.
