Most drivers will approach Nottingham from the M1 – supporters can leave at a variety of junctions to reach the stadium.

The furthest north is junction 26 and involves taking the A610 and following signs for football traffic. At the junction of the A610 and the A6514 turn right to join the Ring Road South. Follow the ring road for 10 miles before turning left onto the Radcliffe Road and the ground will be on your left after around 1.5 miles.

From the South leave at Junction 24 and take the A453. When you meet the Nottingham Ring Road you can either go straight over and follow the Wilford Road B679 for two miles before turning onto the A60. Follow the A60 past Trent Bridge and the ground will be on your left. Alternatively, you can follow the Ring Road South before turning left onto the Radcliffe Road and the ground will be on your left after 1.5 miles.
