Information about parking near Ashton Gate Stadium
Ashton Gate is a football stadium and the home of Bristol City football club. But it’s much more than that – Bristol’s Premier League rugby club (now rechristened the Bristol Bears) is there, the sometimes site of international football matches and pop concerts.

When it comes to on-street parking, the answer to questions about where to park around Ashton Gate? is: “Not here.” On-street parking near Ashton Gate is very limited indeed. Most roads in the Ashton Road Industrial Estate, which is accessed opposite the entrance to Ashton Gate on the other side of the flyover, have double yellow lines signifying “No parking at any time,” and the police find easy pickings here on match and events days from people who hope to get away with it.
Companies in Ashton Road Industrial Estate sell parking spaces in their own car parks on match and events days. There are a number of spaces to park on match days at nearby Bedminster Cricket Club – but get there early. Other off-street options include:
