This is built into natural banking and is the most basic of the stands. The Fantastic Media North stand is the tallest stand with two tiers, 16 hospitality boxes and a viewing room for players’ guests. The lower tier consists of temporary seating that can be removed for events such as concerts.

    This ground is possibly one of the best in the lower leagues, easy to find, though parking can be a bit tricky as its on a retail park/cinema/restaurant site.
    If you stay over go for the Premier Inn on Brighouse road, great value hotel with good service and a great pub attached to it. Close to the motorway and only £7 in a cab to the ground.
    As for the ground it has all you would expect from a newer ground, food ok, prices ok and a bookies in the away end too.

    A great stadium that has played host to World Cup Rugby League, HTAFC to bryan adams elton john.
    Pubs suitable for away fans include head of steam and the greyhound in huddersfield centre for real ales.
    It is bets to avoid the market tavern and rickys on leeds road nearer the ground.
    Even as a home supporter I’d avoid these..

    good cheap parking can be had on St Andrews Road HD1 5RJ a council run non tarmac carpark, that is usually avaialble upto 30 mins before kick off, and it is free on a weeknight.

    The home section nearest the away end, always have a song to sing, and the action on the pitch so far this season has entertained

    Have to Agree with the Other supporters that have left comments..Easy enough to park on the FREE Carparking on St Andrews Road ( it was a night match and free after 6pm). only a 5 minute walk to the ground. The Pubs on the Leeds road didn’t seem to want business on the night, having to queue up for a drink with no one in the Pub(Yorkshire Rose take note). Once in the ground, Catering was spot on, if not a little expensive.. and then the seats though not used and view of the pitch was spot on. bit of friendly banter in the ground with the fans in the stand to the right of the Blades Fans.. Until that emptied near the end of the game, 1-0 to the red and white wizards…..wouldn’t look out of place in the Championship.. UTB…

    We visited Huddersfield and stopped over in the Travelodge (Booked a month ago £21per room) which has free car parking. Its right next to the Yorkshire Rose pub and there was a good mix of home and away fans in there. The pub serves a range of ales and has a good 2 for 1 menu which makes the prices reasonable. Ground is 5 mins walk from here.

    Whilst the Galpharm is a thoroughly pleasant ground, there are a few problems. I took the train, which I would highly recommend especially If you are coming from the south as the line from Sheffield to Huddersfield is an extremely pretty branch line after Barnsley with some excellent scenery. However upon arriving in Huddersfield, the problems manifested themselves pretty quickly. The police tried to shove all of the away fans into some horrible wetherspoons pub in the town centre, while generally making trouble by demanding to see match tickets, train tickets etc. I slipped away and headed to the ground, which I found without too much hassle. However, once you are through the turnstiles you may regret it. Other than in the stand itself, shelter is limited as it built into a natural slope, so the exits to the “concourse” are at the top and the concourse where the toilets, food kiosks etc. are located is completely open to the elements, so I got thoroughly soaked when queuing to use the loo at half time. I found the stewards quite obtrusive – constantly pestering people to sit down. The home fans were a bit of a disappointment to be quite honest – after only a few half-hearted songs they were drowned out by an extremely vocal sell-out away section, despite the dire 0-0 draw. After the game the fans could mingle with no trouble and the journey home was fine. Overall I would recommend the Galpharm, but I would certainly advise you to bring a waterproof coat if the weather is at all wet.
