Blundell Park (capacity 9,052)
Grimsby Town have played at Blundell Park since 1898, and at just 2 feet above sea level, it is the lowest football stadium in the UK. The club have recently announced plans to relocate to a new stadium at Peaks Parkway.
The stadium was made all-seater in 1995, which drastically reduced the capacity. The Youngs Stand is the tallest of the four stands, and is two tiered. However, it doesn’t run the full length of the pitch so looks quite unique. The Main Stand is opposite, and the central section of this stand actually dates back to 1901, and is one of the oldest stands in the football league.
Away fans visiting Blundell Park are located in one section of the Osmond Stand, with a typical allocation of around 600. This can be increased to over 2,000 if the whole stand is allocated for bigger away followings.
There is no parking available at the stadium itself, so street parking is the only option.

When you leave the station, head down to the sea front and turn left, and you can walk all the way up until you can see the stadium on your left hand side. Before the stadium, you’ll see a footbridge over the railway that you’ll have to cross, and then turn right. You’ll then see the away entrance on your left hand side through some houses.
