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.

Latest Hawthorns parking reviews
great parking place for footballJ
Space was easy to access and is approx 15 mins from stadium. The owner of the property had marked the space with a sign so we could see where to park and he came outside to say hello when we parked up. He offered directions to the hawthorns and wished us well for the game. After the game you are away from all the major traffic too which is a huge plus.Dan
Easy to find, and if you have to navigate going to WBA by car, would recommend this spaceDavid
Easy to find and had a sign on the window advising where to park. The lady came out to say hello as well. It’s only 10-15 minute walk to the stadium with directions consisting of walking up a long road then turning left. The main road outside the stadium is horrendous and I saw lots of ‘park here’ signs. Trust me, you’ll be there for a week after the match if you choose them. But this spot is away from the main road and allows for an easy exit and routes to central Birmingham, which leads to the motorways. I found barely any traffic when I left so just avoid driving past the stadium and you’ll be fine. Definitely use this spot if you’re catching a WBA match.Sam
Ideal location to park if visiting the Albion and easy to find, you don't have to sit in long queues to get out of the surrounding roads nearer the stadium.Jack
