Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield, S6 1SW.

Hillsborough remains an impressive ground although it's getting on a bit nowdays. Reading fans will be located in the Upper tier of the West Stand which is obviously all seated and fully covered. Recommended drinking includes the Wadsley Jack pub which is on Rural Lane - a ten minute walk uphill from the away end of Hillsborough. Just past this pub is the Rose and Crown which is supposed to be away-fan friendly.

By car, get on the M1 and exit at Junction 36. From the motorway junction follow the A61 into Sheffield. The ground is signed posted with plenty of car parks charging anything from two pounds upwards. Alternative parking is in the shopping centres - the ground is easy to reach by tram.
By train
- the station is two miles away. You could walk if you're feeling energetic - alternatively catch a tram, bus or taxi to the ground.
