Your first one [^]

Second route I'd class as a tourist's route

Thanks

Just looking on the maps it seems like a massive detour, past Rochdale and up past Bury, but I guess the roads will be quicker, even if it's 30 miles longer.

Now I'm conflicted!

One vote for option 1 and one vote for option 2.

I'll leave asking for parking recommendations until later [:D]

Whenever I've gone, I've always gone A66, M6, M65 (though I live in Darlo) I hate the M62 with a passion, horrible road if anything goes wrong (as it frequently does) it quickly becomes a car park.

Done it quite a few times. Definitely option 2 for me. Park near Uncle Jacks PH (now closed) and itís a quick get away

If you're not worried about time, use the A59. If you actually want to get there and home, A66.

Second route.

Turn right just before the ground and park on one of the industrial sites on the left hand side for a quick getaway (for about £5). Left out of the car park takes you the back way back to the motorway without getting caught up in the traffic around the ground.

I do it once a fortnight with work. Either way is just as quick. Absolutely wouldn't go a66 whatsoever unless you live Darlington way though. M62 will be rammed Saturday though

2nd route, it may even be faster on the day, the M62 can be a nightmare.

Alternatively, get in a time machine and set it back to 1972. Horrible place.

To the North West I would always go A66, M6 too but again that's because I live Fairfield, Hartburn side of Stockton. If going from Boro it may not be worth it.

Since turning into a SMART motorway the M62 is a disaster. Always get stuck in an unnecessary traffic jam and the road works near Warrington are a nightmare.
