Getting There

By car:
Take the M1 and leave the motorway at Junction 21, before taking the A5460 towards Leicester city centre. Continue on this road, until you go under a railway bridge. Carry on for another 200 yards and turn right at the traffic lights into Upperton Road (sign posted Royal Infirmary) and then right again into Filbert Street for the stadium.

There is an official car park on Flibert Street, but you have to pre-book it with Leicester and it’s £15 per car. Alternatively you can park at Leicester Rugby Club (£3) which is a 10-minute walk away from the stadium. Recently a number of 'Residents Only' parking schemes have been implemented on streets off the A5460 Narborough Road and Upperton Road, near to the ground, which means that street parking now has to be found further away from the stadium. You can park on side streets off Narborough Road, but it means anything up to a 20-minute walk to the stadium.

By train:
Leicester train station is in the city centre approximately 1.5 miles from the stadium.

Did you know…
The stadium was officially opened by former Leicester City striker, Gary Lineker, on 23rd July 2002. He used a giant pair of scissors to cut a ribbon on the pitch after arriving at the stadium in a lorry adorning the logo of Walkers - the stadium's first sponsor.
