Parking Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Best place to park in and around Hillsborough tomorrow?, normally get the train however driving down instead. Should be at Hillsborough for 10.30am/11.00am so just wondering best place to park for reasonable price and fairly easy to get away from. Thanks

Training ground car park will be your best bet mate, be loads of space especially at that time.

Herries Road / Wordsworth Avenue areas have seen car's being broken into and wing mirrors broken off and nicked recently so avoid like the plague

 

Also be wary of traffic wardens tomorrow

Just park on road up towards Wadsley Bridge Club its free and if heading towards Bradford straight away in that direction with a little thought parking at Hillsborough isn't an issue even for the biggest games unless medically you cant walk any reasonable distance.

I always park on Halifax road - 10 minute walk to the ground but gets me clear away heading back to J36 of M1 northbound.

Cheers for the advice, will avoid Herries Road / Wordsworth Avenue, being from Bradford and tight free parking is always a bonus.

If you're coming from North then as mentioned, Halifax Road (cars were vandalised on the road off Railway Pub so best parking further up e.g. residential roads). Or any of the  streets near the training ground (you can then leave north towards Stocksbridge Bypass/M1)

I park on the very bottom end of Herries road and have had none of those problems

.........and if you choose to park on a side street, be aware of the Clearway signs / Clearway ends signs.

Some people think they've been lucky and found a place near the main road junction, but they are still in the Clearway.no-stopping-clearway.png.1097366590f6fab24402bd97626c718e.png

Just bear in mind the councils parking jobsworths will be out in force trying to fleece unsuspecting motorists
