Parking is a pain near most football grounds these days, but a little local knowledge can go a long way. If you are looking for free parking near to the football ground of Aston Villa:
This page tells you exactly where to leave your car for free if going to a game at Villa Park if coming to your first home game or are an away fan;
- Church Road – Sat Nav : B6 5UP
Church Road can get busy close to kick off. Arrive with a bit of time to secure free street parking. There is the option to pay £3-5 to park on the smaller industrial units here also.
You can also park on the grass verges here as nobody appears to get ticketed.
The free spaces here sit on a one way road providing access back on to the duel carriageway leading to the motorway / city centre after the game.
Walk time to the Villa ground: 10 minutes.
2. Cheston Road – Sat Nav : B7 5EH
Cheston Road is free, has plenty of spaces and has good access to get away after the game. You can pay to park in any number of industrial units along the road (£5) , or opt to save your cash by parking on this long road for nothing.
The best spots are at the Aston Manor Brewery end of the road. At the end of the game, make sure you exit from the opposite end of the brewary (turn if necessary) to avoid joining traffic coming from the direction of Villa Park. At the end of the road turn right and follow the signpost at the island.
Walk time to the ground: 15 minutes.
