Directions:

By Car
From the North, follow the southbound M5 as far as junction 25, exiting onto the A358 towards Ilminster until joining the A303. Continue east along the A303 then take the A3088 into Yeovil. At the first roundabout, take the first exit at the Western Avenue roundabout into Lufton Way. The main entrance to the ground is on the right.

From the South, drivers are advised to follow the A37 into Yeovil, turning left onto the A30 (West Coker Road). At the next roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto the A3088 (Watercombe Lane) and follow it through one roundabout. At the next, take the 2nd exit onto Bunford Lane. Take the 1st exit at the next roundabout onto Lufton Way and the ground is on the left.
 

By Rail:
Yeovil has two railway stations, Yeovil Junction and Pen Mill Junction, on opposite sides of the town from the ground. Visitors advise that a taxi is the most convenient method of getting to the ground from both stations. A “Hopper” minibus service operates from Yeovil Junction to the town centre, where First Traveller service no. 1 leaves from a stop outside Lloyds TSB in the High Street and drops off near the stadium.

Taxis
There are several taxi companies in Yeovil that can take you to and from Huish Park. You can always prebook a private hire taxi, or hail a black cab on any highway.

 

The stadium is in the suburbs of Yeovil and was built as a replacement for the former non-league club’s previous ground, The Huish, in 1990. The ground has two seated stands (the Cowlin Stand and the Agusta Westland Community Stand) and two separate standing areas (the Blackthorn Stand and Copse Road Terrace, the latter being the away stand). The away end is uncovered, so be prepared to get very wet if it rains!

A Fans View:

Away fans are situated in the Copse Road open terrace at one end of the ground. This is uncovered, so hope for a dry day. Up to 1,500 supporters can be housed in this area. Additionally just under 600 seats are allocated to away fans in the Screwfix Community Stand, which is covered. However tickets are only made available in this area to families with young children, senior citizens and ambulant disabled. Normally a visit to Huish Park is enjoyable, and the atmosphere good. This is boosted by a very vocal crowd in the home terrace as well as the presence of a drummer and trumpeter in that end (on my last visit the trumpeter was even imitating an ambulance siren as the trainer ran on to treat an injured player!). If Yeovil score then 'Glad All Over' by the Dave Clark Five blasts out around the ground. Food on offer inside include Pasties (meat or vegetable £3.20), a range of pies; Chicken Curry, Chicken & Mushroom, Steak & Kidney (all £3.20), Hot Dogs (£3.20) and Sausage Rolls (£2.20).
On my last visit I was five minutes late getting to the game and had missed the kick off. Unbelievably the turnstiles had already closed at the away end. Myself and a number of other away fans had to run around the ground to try and find and someone who could get us in. We managed this, and I have to say that the stewards were particularly helpful and friendly. I found the large police presence in and around the ground perturbing. In my mind I was not at a high profile game, so I was somewhat surprised at the amount of local constabulary there.
