Notts County Travel Guide

Making the journey to Notts County this weekend? SLO Kristine Green has put together the following travel guide to help make your journey run as smooth as possible!

What colour kit will the team be wearing?

The boys are in Blue for this fixture. 

What’s the ticket information?

All available tickets for Town fans have been purchased. No additional tickets will be made available.

What stand are we in?

We are in the Jimmy Sirrel Stand, which is a large stand that runs the length of the pitch.

It is an all seater, allocated seat stand.

What time will turnstiles open?

Turnstiles open at 1.30pm 

How do I get to the ground?

Leave the M1 at junction 26, then onto the A610 towards Nottingham and then Melton Mowbray. Turn left before the river onto Meadow Lane.

Alternatively, it’s straight down the A46 and onto the A52 towards Nottingham.  As Radcliffe Road forks off to the left towards Trent Bridge Cricket ground, you need to bear right onto Lady Bay Bridge and follow the road over the river. At the next set of lights turn left onto Meadow Lane and the ground in on the right.

Where is the best place to park?

The Cattle Market Car Park (NG2 3BL) is the nearest car park to the ground but can be difficult to get out of after the game.

Alternatively, you have the Victoria Embankment Car Park (NG2 2EH) or Nottingham Train Station multi-story Car Park.  There are other pay and display Car Parks within the city centre too.

There is some street parking away from the ground but check signage before parking up. 

What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?

Nottingham Train Station is only a 10-minute walk away from the ground on the same side of the River Trent.

The 17:34 is a direct return, the 17:44 is not.

Recommended pubs for away fans?

Hooters on London Road is popular pre-match for fans but they seem to be running a booking only system with no availability on writing this.

The Boot Room on Pavillion Road (opposite side of the river to Meadow Lane) is welcoming Town fans and has a capacity of around 200.

Fellows Morton + Clayton on Canal Street (also a capacity of 200) are welcoming away fans too.

Should this be full, other pubs/bars canal side may welcome fans.

Is food available in the area?

Around the ground, there is plenty of local and national chain places to eat as it is so close to the City Centre.

Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?

There is a cash machine at the Jet petrol station but it does charge. Otherwise, there are plenty of them in the City Centre.

What food and drink is available at the stadium?

Inside the ground has a couple of catering outlets serving burgers, pies and vegetarian options. As well as sweets, crisps, hot and cold drinks as well as alcohol.

Cash and card are accepted.

Is a programme available?

Yes, a printed programme is available at a cost of £3.  It’s available around the ground and from the home Club Shop.

What’s the policy on flags?

Flags are permissible – stewards instructions on placement must be adhered to.
