Directions:

By Car
The ground is easy to find. Leave the M6 at junction 43 and take the A69 towards Carlisle. After a mile the ground is on your right (look out for the statue of a footballer on the corner). The club car park (cost £2.50) can be found by taking the first right immediately after Brunton Park into Victoria Place and then turn first right onto St Aidans Road. Otherwise street parking.

By Train
James Prentice informs me; 'Brunton Park is situated about a mile from Carlisle Citadel station, but is relatively easy to get to. Upon exiting the station's main entrance, walk the short distance around the Crescent until reaching Warwick Road. You will be able to see the old Main Stand and the strangely-shaped roofs of the Warwick Road end after walking for about twenty minutes. There are directions to the away supporters' turnstiles above the Carlisle United club shop'.

General Information:

Brunton Park has a capacity of just under 17,000, with a mixture of terracing and seating. The Warwick Road End, at the South end of the ground, is the most distinctive “stand.” Although currently called the “Unison Stand” due to a sponsorship deal, it is still passionately known as “The Warwick” to most Carlisle fans. It is terraced and houses the most vocal supporters.

The “Cumberland Building Society Stand,” at the East side is a single-tiered, covered all-seater stand. Though constructed several years ago, its interior was never completed, with spaces remaining at the top for executive boxes. The stand runs some 20 yards past the goal line at the North end as plans were originally to move the pitch northwards to allow for a new stand at the South end.

The West side is an old, partly-covered Main Stand, which has seating at the back and a terraced paddock to the front. The central part of this stand was built in 1954 and the wings added later. The Petterill End is a small open terrace on the North side of the ground.

A Fans View:

The facilities and the view of the playing area from the away section of the East Stand are generally reported as very good.

However, if only part of the Cumberland Building Society Stand is allocated to away fans, they are only separated from the home supporters by fabric spread across several rows of seats. While several fans thought this helped to produce a lively atmosphere, many found it intimidating. Visiting fans report being unimpressed by the Petterill End terrace which is open to the elements.
