Hungerford initially played at Hungerford Marsh, before moving to Bulpit Lane after the First World War. The ground has seen some improvements recently with the installation of a covered seated stand at the North end, behind the goal. This was acquired from Newbury FC and contains 210 seats in seven rows. It runs for around a third of the length of the pitch and there are slightly raised steps on either side.

There are also several small stands and a number of uncovered standing areas completing the rest of the ground, which is quite small and situated next to the town’s cricket pitch. Hungerford’s record attendance of 1,363 came v Leamington in the Southern Premier League Play Off Final, on 2nd May 2016.

It is served by trains from London Paddington, which operates an hourly service on Saturday afternoons. On leaving the train station walk up to the Railway Tavern pub. Turn left at the pub and at the top of the hill turn right then first left into Fairview Road.

Ground Facilities & Away Pubs

There is a clubhouse inside the ground which welcomes visiting supporters.

The nearest pub to the ground is the Borough Arms on the High Street, which is about a ten minute walk away. More or less opposite is a handy fish and chip shop. There are plenty of other pubs and eating establishments dotted further along the High Street. If arriving by train then just outside the station is a Fullers pub called the Railway Tavern. If you have time, then at the end of the High Street over the river bridge and up on the right is the John O’Gaunt pub, which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
