PARKING

Matchday parking is available inside the Archway entrance on a first-come, first-served basis.

NB. We recommend that disabled spectators requiring a parking space should contact Callum Terry (admin@stourbridgefc.com) 24 hours in advance, particularly if you are not expecting to arrive until shortly before kick-off, to ensure that a space is kept free.

Parking is also available on streets around the ground, including Mill Race Lane (evenings) and Old Wharf Road either side of High Street, between the ground and the Ring Road. The nearest "Pay & Display" Car Park is on Birmingham Road, just off the Ring Road, approximately 5-10 minutes' walk from the ground.

We would respectfully remind spectators to show consideration for our neighbours when parking, and in particular please do not park in Westland Gardens, The Holloway or Stamford St, near to the ground, out of consideration to our neighbours.
