The car parking at the ground is usually restricted to officials and corporate hospitality however there is plenty of unrestricted parking in the surrounding streets. A very safe place to park is in the Lyme Green Retail Park, which is only about 300 yards South of the ground down the London Road or on the London Road itself.
The Station is a good 30-minute walk (mile and a half) from the ground. Turn left out of the station into Sunderland Street until the major crossroads at the War Memorial. Turn left into Mill Lane (A523 towards Leek) and follow the road for about a mile where it becomes Cross Street then London Road and you will find the ground on your right.
The number 9 bus from Macclesfield Bus Station will take you to the Moss Rose and runs every 20 minutes.

The ground is located on the outskirts of Macclesfield and therefore there is not a tremendous choice of pubs or even a handy chippy. Adam Hodson a visiting Stockport County fan informs me; 'At the stadium itself, there is the Keith Alexander Bar which admits both home and away supporters. It is located in the Henshaw's Stand next door to the Sammy Macllroy suite Apart from alcoholic drinks, hot food is on offer too'. Jonathan Woodard a visiting Brentford fan adds; 'The bar is free to get in and prices are reasonable and perhaps best of all you get a great view of the pitch so you can watch the teams warming up an hour before the game!'
The closest pub is the Golden Lion, which is
just under a ten minute walk from the away turnstiles. I found the pub warm and friendly and I my last visit there was a 50-50 mix of home and away supporters. It serves real ale and on
matchdays they offer Pie & Chips, plus a pint for £5, which can't be bad! The pub also offers free parking for coaches and mini buses if arranged in advance (Tel: 01625 423763). To find the
Golden Lion, simply head down Moss Lane, which goes behind the away terrace, and then turn left at the corner of the ground and walk down behind the new stand. Keep straight on this road and you will
come to the pub on the left.
If you are into your real ale then I would suggest taking the 10 minute walk to The Railway View pub on Byrons Lane. This smallish pub has around six ales on offer including a number of guest beers. They also sell homemade pies and if the weather is good then there is a small beer garden. To find this excellent pub follow the A523 from the ground towards Macclesfield town centre. You will pass a pub 'The Albion' and then at the next set of traffic lights turn right into Byrons Lane. Just go over the railway bridge and the pub is on the right. Paul Petty a visiting Colchester United fan adds; 'I went to the Railway on Byrons Lane before (and after) the game. I am not sure if it is a annual event but I was lucky enough to hit their mini-spring beer festival. I would highly recommend the pub for both the quality of the beer and the friendliness of both the landlord and clientele. My only regret was that I didn't book a later train back to London!'
