Arriving at bet365 Stadium from City Centre

The easiest method of accessing the bet365 Stadium from Stoke town centre is on foot. You can use the footpaths along the bridge over the A500, which leads to the incinerator access road.

That links up with the footway/cycle way (and the bridge over the canal and railway line) to the stadium. Pedestrians can also join the footway from the towpath, which runs along the Trent and Mersey canal. Another route is to walk or cycle from Heron Cross (Grove Road) and Hollybush (Highfield Drive) to the stadium.
