Matchday 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.

If you plan to drive directly to the stadium then we strongly advise that you:

– Look into opportunities for sharing your car journey with others going to the game to help us reduce the number of cars heading to the ground.

– 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.
