Guests with Reduced Mobility

Matchday Parking

There are 22 disabled parking spaces for home fans which are sold on a seasonal basis. Due to this, unfortunately there are no disabled parking spaces available on a match to match basis. However, drop off points are available throughout the car park.

We have four Blue Badge disabled spaces available for away fans, located close to the Harold Lilleker & Sons (North) Stand. More spaces can be accommodated in the away coach parking area. These are based on a first come, first served basis, with a charge of £7 made payable on the day at reception. Please ring the club to make this arrangement.
