Cricket Parking at Martineau Gardens Cricket Car Park 2022

With Test Match Cricket, Commonwealth Games Cricket (and more) 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)

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. 

What you need to know:

£25 per car, cash or card – on the day – sorry, but strictly no advance reservations possible.

You can park your car in the Martineau Gardens car park (on selected dates, subject to availability) for £25* , 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 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 £25 charge will be charged.

Areas of Edgbaston are likely to have road restrictions in place.

Get Set for the Games 28 July – 8 Aug – with the Birmingham Commonwealth Games fast approaching, it’s going to be a busy and exciting summer around Edgbaston and beyond.
