Hoping to go, but need to drive from Salisbury, does anyone have any parking recommendations where I'm not going to be stuck for an hour to get back onto the M1?
Freeman's common road car park. Parked there last season, had no problems getting away and a short walk to the ground.

Loads of options on peoples driveways through Just Park or similar apps. Last season I parked about 25 minutes walk from the ground for about £4 and completely avoided all pre and post match traffic.

Same here.
Lovely walk to/from the ground along the river too.

Thanks, I use that app, whereabouts did you park as I don't know the area and can see there's a river one side of the ground. I promise I won't nick your place😁

Parked in the John Lewis multi storey. Plenty of space and very reasonable rates on a Sunday. About 15 minute walk to ground. Not sure how easy to get away from straight after game since went to a restaurant for dinner before leaving.

I parked on Kingsmead Road, quite a nice stroll in the sunshine through a small conservation area and up along Welford Road.

Whereabouts did you park, not knowing the area, but seeing the river on the map I know I could mess up badly😁. I don't actually mean your spot, but what area?

Parked in the road highlighted here for under £4:00 using Just Park.
But to be honest, in that estate you could probably park along the main road for free. Didn't look like any parking restrictions.

Is there bridge over the water there or do you have to walk up to the top of Watkin Road turn right and then down Raw Dykes road?

There's loads of free street parking in those roads off Western Road. You walk along a path upto Upperton Road, past the bizarre Statue of Liberty roundabout and then turn right. It's about 25 mins walk. One of the easier parking spots from last season and free!

No bridge straight over to the King Power from there.
But you can cut through, and there's a footpath along the river, up to the bridge at the top of that image, then you walk down Raw Dykes road.
