Nottingham Forest Ground Information
Away Fans’ Stand
Facilities for Disabled Fans
The City Ground has evolved into a modern venue for watching football, which means that the facilities for fans with disabilities are relatively well catered for – though parking on matchdays is limited.
In terms of facilities, Nottingham Forest can offer 10 mobile receivers that provide audio description commentary and wheelchair spaces in the Bridgford Stand.
For more details on the club’s disabled supporters policy, take a trip to the Nottingham Forest official website.
With central Nottingham and Trent Bridge cricket ground not too far away from the City Ground, there are no shortage of places to grab a pre-match pint or three – but it seems that’s only if you’re a home fan.
For away fans, suggestions include the Stratford Haven just off Bridgford Road to the south east of the cricket ground. Or, if you’re really not that fussy, there’s Hooters on London Road on the other side of the river.
Nottingham Forest Travel Information – Distance: 102 miles
It shouldn’t take too much time to get up to Nottingham on a good day, with the trip barely passing the 100-mile mark; taking two hours to complete. If you’re travelling to Nottingham by car, you’ll be heading north on the A1(M) to begin with and it will be this stretch that accounts for most of your travelling distance; 81 miles to be exact.
Travel north up the A1 until you reach the exit for the A52 at Grantham, turning left at the end of the slip road for Nottingham. And you will need to stay on the A52 until you come to Gamston on the edge of the city. At the roundabout, take the second exit and join the A6011 for the city centre. Turn left after 0.3 miles onto Radcliffe Road, with Trent Bridge cricket ground shortly appearing on the left and the City Ground on the right up Pavilion Road.
Car parking at the City Ground isn’t exactly freely available, with priority given to disabled fans, coaches and players etc. There are a number of “approved” car parks, however.
Meadow Lane, the home of Notts County, is one of those car parks at a cost of £3 per vehicle, while Victoria Embankment is £4 to park and is not too far from the ground either.
Street parking is a risk, however, due to the local parking regulations in force in the area.
Services to: GRANTHAM (for STEVENAGE)
You can probably walk from Nottingham’s railway station to the City Ground in around 20 minutes, with a distance of one mile separating the two. Exit south from the station on Carrington Street and continue onto Arkwright Street, before turning left after 0.2 miles onto Meadows Way.
Meadows Way will bend around to the right and, shortly after, you’ll be turning left onto Kirkwhite Walk and right shortly after onto London Road. Continue down towards the river, crossing the bridge and turning left for the stadium.
