Parking around the ground is fairly limited, so here is a guide as to where to park and areas to avoidwhen you visit the Victoria Ground. Please read under each heading very carefully.
Front Car Park
For match officials, visiting directors and VIPs only. We also keep a couple of spaces free for people with disabilities.
Rear Car Park
This car park is primarily for ground staff, home directors, home and visiting players and coaching staff. Please avoid blocking anybody in and follow the directions of our car park steward.
Council Car Park – entrance from Stourbridge Road (B61 8DA)
This is a pay and display car park charging 80p per hour. Although it is not displayed, you can pay for parts of an hour. So for £2-00 you would get 2½ hours. CCTV is an advantage of parking here but beware of the Council’s strict enforcement as well as regular checks if you want to avoid a fine.
Parking is free after 7:00 p.m. This is where we would encourage visiting fans to park.
Further in town there are additional Council car parks on Parkside (other side of the traffic lights), Market Street (Asda – pay on foot), School Drive and Recreation Road all of which are within easy walking distance.
Rear of Mint Lounge
This is private land and no responsibility of Bromsgrove Sporting and we would ask visitors not to park here.
Spaces are sometimes available on Birmingham Road but avoid parking on yellow lines as civil enforcement has recently been stepped up.
Also please do not park in front of the houses on the service road off the roadway entrance at the Rear Car Park.
Blackmore Lane is access only for residents and visitors to properties.
Victoria Road should be avoided but if you do park there please do not double-park or block drive entrances.
Parkside Medical Practice
The car park is available to members of the public on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and costs just £1 all day. Entrance is on the Stourbridge Road left just past Parkside Hall.
Bromsgrove Retail Park (Lidl, Pure Gym) and Aldi site
Opposite and next to the Victoria Ground. This is private land and both sites have time limits after which they will impose fines. We do not recommend parking here.
Shenstone Close (B60 1PG)
If you turn on to Burcot Lane at The Crabmill then immediately right down Shenstone Close, there are a number of spaces at the rear of All Saints Church Hall. Walk down Shenstone Close then right at Blackmore Lane brings you out at the Hop Pole. A bit further to walk but convenient for a quick getaway up the Birmingham Road.
The Artrix/HoW College Car Park (B60 1GN)
It you are heading up or down the A38 then this car park is quite convenient. Access is by the Premier Inn/Brewers Fayre Guild restaurant on Slideslow Drive. Park near the Artrix, walk down the pathway at the end of School Drive and you come out at the Hop Pole. About 10 minutes from the ground.
However charges of 80p per hour from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day have now been introduced and you have to pay by phone.
