How To Find Us
Trent Bridge Cricket Ground is situated in West Bridgford, in very close proximity to both Nottingham Forest and Notts County Football Clubs. Our postcode is NG2 6AG.
As you approach, you can’t miss the circular floodlights.
We are a couple of miles from Nottingham City Centre, a mile or so from the train station, and our city is blessed with one of the best public transport networks in the UK.
We have gates through which to enter the ground situated on Bridgford Road, Radcliffe Road, Hound Road and Fox Road. You are welcome to enter via any of these gates, regardless of where you are sitting.
For your convenience, you can view a map that shows approaches to the ground here.
Travelling by Car
The Club's official car parking on Bridge Field is sold out. There are, however, a number of well-located, secure car parks around the city centre - as well as paid car parking on Victoria Embankment.
Anyone travelling by car from outside the city can take advantage of NET’s seven free park & ride facilities located around Nottingham. The most convenient tram park & ride site for the A453 can be found at Clifton South (17-minute tram travel time).
As an added incentive to take the tram, NET will be running its £2 return event ticket offer (see travelling by tram, below).

Travelling By Tram
The Queens Walk and Meadows Embankment tram stops are located around a 20-minute walk from the ground, with the route from the Meadows Embankment stop proceeding along a pleasant stretch of the River Trent. Alternatively, a stop at Nottingham Train Station can be found just a 20-minute walk away. To help plan your journey, visit www.thetram.net
NET will be running its £2 return event ticket offer for all match ticket holders and Members.
To take advantage of the deal, you need to select the Event Ticket option from the ticket vending machine before boarding the tram, and make sure you have your match ticket to hand for inspection.

The service, running in partnership with Skills Coaches and Nottingham Express Transit (NET), will depart from the bus stop on Arkwright Street, which is just a short walk from Nottingham Train Station’s main or Queens Road exits/entrances.
Buses will then drop off near The Embankment Trent Bridge, which is just a few minutes’ stroll over the bridge to our ground.
The shuttle bus will start to run from 11am, with buses every ten minutes until the start of the match at 1pm.
The return service will resume from the Trent Bridge Embankment bus stop from 8.45pm, continuing to run for an hour after play. Please note that timings of the return service are subject to change if the match finishes early.
