The overall look of the ground has greatly improved with the re-development of both ends of the ground. The Norrie McCathie and East Stands at each end of the ground, are very similar in design and were opened in 1998. Both are covered single tiered stands, that are quite steep in appearance. On one side of the ground is the two tiered South (Main) Stand, which is a classic looking football stand built in the early 1960’s and is of a good size. On the other side is the smaller North Stand, which is single tiered and covered.
Away fans are normally housed in the East Stand at one end of the ground, where just over 3,000 fans can be accommodated. The facilities in this stand are good and the view of the playing action excellent. If demand requires it, then parts of the North & South (Main) Stand can also be allocated for a total of 6,783, which is the allocation for Old Firm games. Other visitors get a maximum of 4,400 seats. There is normally a good atmosphere generated within the ground.
One point of interest is that the winner of the half time lottery is presented with the relevant amount of cash on the pitch. Lets just hope that they don’t get mugged on the way home!
Jim Francis recommends the Elizabethan, near to the ground on Halbeath Road, for away supporters to drink in. Otherwise the ground is around 10-15 minutes walk away from the town centre where there are plenty of pubs to be found. Of note is a Wetherspoons outlet on the High Street, called the Guildhall and Linen Exchange, plus ‘The Commercial’ located just off the High Street on Commercial Street. Both these town centre pubs are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
From North and South
Leave the M90 at Junction 3. Take the A907 towards Dunfermline. Just keep going straight on this road and you will eventually come to the ground on your right.
From the West
From the A985 take the A994 towards Dunfermline. Keep straight on this road into Dunfermline and you will come to the ground on your left.
There is an official car park at the ground (£1) behind the East Stand. Otherwise street parking.
There are two Railway Stations that are each about a 15 minute walk away from East End Park, or about £5 in a taxi. These are Dunfermline Queen Margaret and Dunfermline Town. Both are served by trains from Edinburgh and the latter as the name suggests is closer to the town centre.
