Parking

You should be aware that, on a matchday, parking at the ground is considerably limited and priority is given to disabled supporters, coaches, players, match and club officials.

It is advisable that you park in the approved Nottingham Forest FC Car Parks, which are located at:
Meadow Lane (Notts County Ground) - 3 per car.
Victoria Embankment - 4 per car and very limited availability
County Hall (Notts County Council) - 4 per car, 12 per minibus and 20 per coach.
Cattlemarket Pay & Display - 3 per car
Lady Bay Sports Ground (Notts Rugby Club) NG2 5AA - 5 per car.

Do not park on residential streets around West Bridgford, since Controlled Parking Zones and residents parking schemes are enforced on a matchday.


Train
Nottingham Railway station has regular rail services from London, Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Newark, Grantham, Worksop, Sheffield and Peterborough.

The station itself is roughly a 20 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride from The City Ground. Leaving the station on Queens Road turn right into London Road the ground will be on your left. 

Eating & Drinking

The City Ground is across the road from the historic Trent Bridge cricket ground and most local bars and shops offer a warm welcome to fans on a matchday.   

However it is worth noting the Larwood and Voce and the Trent Bridge Inn are not open to away supporters.   

The Meadow Club on Meadow Lane is the 'unofficial' pub for away supporters. It adjoins Notts County FC and can be reached by walking along the A60 (London Road) over Trent Bridge and past some flats on the right-hand side, then taking the first right onto Meadow Lane.
