Getting to the City Ground

By car: From the south, leave the M1 at junction 24 and follow the signs to join the A453 towards Nottingham and after passing through Clifton, continue on the A453 following signs for football and cricket traffic. Join the A52 eastbound towards Grantham and carry straight on at the Nottingham Knight Island and the Wheatcroft Island until you reach the Gamston Island. Take the first exit onto the A6011 (‘Radcliffe Road’) and continue along it, following the road as it bends to the right and continue over Lady Bay Bridge.

Please note: There are limited car parking spaces available at the City Ground, charged at £10 on a first-come, first-served basis. Nearby, limited parking spaces are otherwise available at Meadow Lane (Notts County FC), Cattlemarket Pay & Display, Lady Bay Sports Ground (NG2 5AA), and County Hall (Notts County County Building).

By 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 from the City Ground, so the chances are you might be able to leave your car at home more easily than you think.
