Information about parking near Edgbaston
Edgbaston cricket ground is in Southwest Birmingham around a 10 minute drive from the city centre by following either the A38 or A441.
Parking near to Edgbaston cricket ground on event days can be somewhat challenging. On-street parking is largely reserved for resident permit holders and off-street car parks have very limited availability for a 25,000 capacity stadium. Travelling at least part of your journey on foot or by using public transport is recommended.
JustPark provides information on plenty of parking options near Edgbaston, many of which are reservable – including spaces on-street and off-street, from driveways to car parks.
The streets surrounding the cricket ground are largely permit restricted on major event days but parking restrictions can vary – International Test matches for example are a likely cause for more stringent policing. Generally, on event days, the majority of on-street parking for a sizeable area around the stadium is reserved solely for resident permit holders. Parking on non-event days is in turn, largely unrestricted.
