With the Hundred Series, Test Match Cricket and Commonwealth Games Cricket happening on our doorstep at Edgbaston Stadium, cricket fans can pay a fee to park their car at Martineau Gardens on selected dates. Each cricket season we usually run a ‘cricket car park’, as a fundraising activity for the Gardens. Find out more below.
Tickets are only available on the day, first come, first served (we are unable to reserve in advance)

What you need to know:
£15 per car, cash or card – on the day – sorry, but strictly no advance reservations possible – on selected dates – announced above
We have space for 20 cars max. Unless otherwise marked, the cricket carpark will open 1.5 hours before the published match start time.
Your car is parked at your own risk. The gates will be closed (but not locked), and staff will be on site throughout the match. If you wish to collect your car early (ie, before the end of the match, and out of our opening hours) please phone 0121 440 7430 when you are outside the Gardens and we will open the gates.
At the end of play, the gates will be open for half an hour. Our staff will need to go home, so if you arrive later than this, you risk your car being locked in until 9.30am on the following morning, or an additional £15 charge will be charged.
Areas of Edgbaston are likely to have road restrictions in place.
(The Commonwealth Games end 8 August – get all the information you need to ‘get set’ including road closures, parking restrictions and travel advice here: Birmingham2022.com/getset )
