Cricket Parking at Martineau Gardens 2021 Cricket Parking 2021

With test Match Cricket (and more) happening on our doorstep at Edgbaston Stadium, cricket can fans 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. New for this year you can buy your cricket parking ticket on-line.  Find out more below.

We strongly advise non-cricket fans planning a visit to the Gardens on international match days to choose another day (since there will be no public parking on these days and for many of the fixtures, there  are road closures in place in Edgbaston) or consider using public transport (but in line with latest government Covid-19 travel advice ).

What you need to know:

You can park your car in the Martineau Gardens car park (on selected dates, subject to availability) for £20*, plus £2 booking fee, we have space for 20 cars max.

Your car is parked at your own risk. The gates will be locked or staffed, and staff will be on site throughout the match. If you wish to collect your car, before the end of the match, please phone 0121 440 7430 when you are outside the Gardens and we’ll unlock 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 £20 charge will be charged.

Covid-19 – Outdoor activity – rest assured, social distancing measures will meet government guidelines
