The ground is about a 10 minute walk away from Derby railway station and is signposted. A new exit has been opened at the station which leads directly onto the retail park, as Dave Plunkett adds; ‘When you go up the stairs from the platform, turn right and walk to the end of the bridge. Go down the stairs, exit and turn right down Roundhouse Road. Bear left at the roundabout, go straight down Riverside Road or turn right go down Pride Parkway where there are couple of places to eat and drink). You will reach the ground in front of you’.
If you want the pubs by the station, then turn left at the top of the stairs from the platform and on exiting the station entrance turn right. Further down on the right just past the Brunswick cross over the road and then descend some steps use the underpass, and follow the fans. The stadium is a about a 20 minute walk in total from the station using this route.
From the M1, exit at Junction 25 and take the A52 towards Derby. The ground is signposted off the A52 after about seven miles. There are a couple of fair sized parks at the new Velodrome which is situated next to Pride Park and is convenient for the away supporters entrance, being at that end of the stadium. The cost of parking is £8 per car, or £6 if the car has four or more people in it.
Kenny Lyon suggests; ‘Perhaps a better place to park for all fans is the cattle market car park. This is a pay and display car park and costs £6. It is about a 15-20 minute walk from the ground and is just off the A52. To get there, go past the normal turning for the stadium and go up to the ‘pentagon roundabout;’ take the first turning off there and then take the next left – you then drive about 300 yards back on yourself, passing it on your left as you drive along the A52′.
Pete Stump adds; ‘Walking from the cattle market car park to the stadium, you will pass a KFC and a Burger King, where I noticed that matchday parking was available for £6’. Michael French a visiting Birmingham City fan informs me; ‘If you take the stadium exit off the A52, then immediately on your right is Wyvern fireplace wholesalers who offer matchday parking at £6. Its only a 5-10 minute walk away from the stadium and offers a fairly swift getaway after the game’. There is also parking available at the Derby Conference Centre on the A6 London Road, which costs £5. Whilst Steve Cocker informs me; ‘There is free street parking available on Downing Road on the West Meadow Industrial Estate (DE21 6HA), which is off the A52. It is then about a 10-15 minute walk to the stadium. Make sure though that you get there in plenty of time before the kick off, as the road fills up quickly.’ I have received reports of a number of cars being broken into on matchday around the stadium, so it may be wise to park at one of the official car parks, or at least somewhere that is offering secure parking.
Steve Hallam informs me; ‘A stretch of the A52 between Nottingham and Derby is named Brian Clough Way in honour of the great mans achievements with both Derby and Forest’.
