TRAVELLING TO THE STADIUM
There are currently roadworks on the A338, which could potentially cause delays, especially if combined with an accident or breakdown. For updates please click HERE.
Free matchday parking is available at Harewood College, which is only a 10 minute walk across the park to Vitality Stadium – highlighted on the map to the right. This parking facility has the advantage of being away from the congestion around Kings Park, and will be manned by a steward until kick-off. If you do use Satellite Navigation System please refer Harewood College as Harewood Avenue. We respectfully ask that all visitors keep to the 10mph and then the 5mph speed limits on school property. Please note that the car park will be locked 45 minutes after the full-time whistle.
Parking is also available to the south of the ground for just £1. When driving to the ground, follow the brown road signs with a football logo to get to Vitality Stadium. Supporters wishing to park at the ground are advised to arrive early as the car park usually reaches capacity around 75 minutes before kick-off. Supporters are likely to experience delays in leaving the car park after the final whistle. Please be aware, there is a left turn at the exit of the car park, which will bring you out on to Gloucester Road in Boscombe.
