Information about Parking in Hawthorns
The Hawthorns is the current home ground of West Bromwich Albion FC, who have played there since 1900, though it was renovated in 2008. It is the highest ground of all the Premier League and Football League clubs at an altitude of 168 meters. West Bromwich Albion, often nicknamed The Baggies, were one of the founding teas of the football league.
The ground does not have its own official car park, which means that street parking is the only other alternative. These can fill very quickly with in excess of 25,000 people expected at any match. Therefore, it is easier and often cheaper to book your parking space in advance to guarantee a space before arrival. The Hawthorns is served by its own train and metro station and can be reached from Birmingham New Street.
The Vine is the closest pub suitable for away fans. It also serves food and is roughly a 20 minute walk from The Hawthorns. The Park Hotel is also an alternative for away fans that similarly serves food and is family friends. There are also a number of interesting attractions like The Manor House Museum and Birmingham is a short journey away.

Safe parking very close to football stadium, can’t complainLiam
Great... had to use the front as couldn’t see the way to the back in the dark and with heavy traffic but this wasn’t a problem at all. Easy walk to the ground and easy drive out tooPaul
Arrived and was greeted by a friendly member of staff, was asked reg number and barrier lifted. There was a wait to get off, but it was match night at The Hawthorns and I knew before booking my space I would have a wait to get off. But I booked the space as its was so close to the football ground as I had my friend with me who is disabled and we were going to the match. Would not hesitate to book onto this car park again in the future.Rachel
I used this facility when attending football at West Brom. Easy to book, very secure, very helpful staff in the security lodge. Only downside was the time it took to leave and join the outside traffic. Had I have thought, I would have parked closer to the exit. I would use this facility again.Keith
