entranceYork Croquet Club lawns are on Scarcroft Green, Scarcroft Road, York, facing Scarcroft Hill, on land managed by the Scarcroft Green Association. We have sole use of three full-size croquet lawns, two small practice lawns and a Clubhouse. The Club is accessed via the gate in the railings on Scarcroft Road. For satnav, use postcode YO24 1DD. See map below.

On foot: The Club entrance on Scarcroft Road is about 200 yards east from the junction with The Mount and 500 yards west from Bishopthorpe Road.

By car: Please note that there is a very limited amount of parking near the Club. There is a small area of unrestricted parking outside the ground on Scarcroft Road, and another small area also on Scarcroft Road parallel to the Wheatlands Lodge Hotel. The rest of Scarcroft Road offers parking of two hours or less. At weekends there is unrestricted parking on Scarcroft Hill (YO24 1DE) opposite the grounds, and on Wentworth Road – off Scarcroft Hill (YO24 1DG). Albemarle Road (YO23 1EN) offers some unrestricted parking about five minutes’ walk from the ground. There are car parks on Nunnery Lane (YO23 1AA) and at weekends, less expensively at All Saints School (YO23 1AD): look for the gap in the brick wall. Scarcroft Lane provides a direct walking route to the Club grounds from both the Nunnery Lane and the All Saints car parks.

Park and Ride: York’s Park and Ride services stop five minutes’ walk from the ground. From the south, west and north, use Askham Bar (A64)  Park and Ride, and alight at the Blossom Street stop. Cross the road at the Everyman Odeon Cinema and turn right to walk out of town, past the KFC restaurant. Go straight over the junction with Holgate Road/East Mount Road. At the next set of lights, turn left down Scarcroft Road. Internet search “York park and ride” for timetable and maps.
