Travel & Parking

Travel & Parking

To ensure you have an enjoyable visit to Villa Park, we recommend you plan your journey.   

In order to do this, we have provided detailed information relating to public transport, use of roads around the stadium and parking. 

Getting to Villa Park by car

To find Villa Park as a reference point using your GPS our postcode is B6 6HE, which will assist in making sure you are in the correct part of Birmingham, but in general you will find Aston Villa as a Point of Interest (POI) in most GPS satellite navigation units. 

When parking at the stadium on a non-matchday, you should access Villa Park via the Witton Road entrance, and should therefore use B6 6QE as the postcode you input into your satellite navigation system. 

Important note for matchdays - do not use the stadium as your destination on GPS satellite navigation units, unless you have access to stadium car parks (permit only). 

You should plan your journey in advance according to which direction you are travelling from, and you should use the Matchday Transport Map to identify the official car park you intend to use. 

Use the postcode and address data of the car park (and not the stadium) in your GPS satellite navigation unit. 

Allow plenty of time to park and walk to the stadium - the earlier the better. 

The further away you park, the easier your journey home after the match will be.

On matchday, please use any official car park for motorbike parking. 

Charges may vary to car park charges. 

On non-matchdays, please use the stadium car parks.

Getting here by bicycle

These are available on matchday and non-matchday.

Travel Plan Objectives

Each year, Aston Villa creates a travel plan which is submitted to Birmingham City Council for approval. 

The travel plan, created by our Transport Committee, includes a number of targets we aim to meet as part of our objectives. 

Each year we conduct a travel survey (supporters and staff) so we can measure our success against these targets. 

Some of our key targets from our travel plan and measurements against these targets are as follows: 

  • Increase the number of supporters travelling to the stadium by sustainable transport to 40% by 2018. 
  • Reduce the number of people travelling alone by car to matches to 13.6% by 2018. 
  • Increase the number of combined walking and cycling journeys by 5%. 
Our next travel survey will take place in 2017 to measure our success in achieving these targets.
