Getting there and Parking
The closest international airport is Liverpool John Lennon airport, alternatively Manchester airport has more connections. Wigan's central railway stations (Wigan North Western & Wallgate stations) are a good 20 minute walk from the ground.
There is limited parking for disabled supporters and parking must be booked in advance. Existing permit holders gain priority. A small number of spaces are available to visiting supporters.
