There is no car parking at the ground, and surrounding streets have parking restrictions which we are advised will be closely monitored by wardens. Blue badge holders can park on Trafalgar Road where there are single yellow lines, but they must observe any other restrictions in place. The wardens will, however, enforce the restriction for none badge holders and on all areas which are governed by double yellows (2hrs restriction for blue badges) and where coned.
Parking is available on Birkdale Common, which is adjacent to Royal Birkdale Golf Club on Waterloo Road, approx 400 metres from the ground. SatNav users should use the postcode PR8 2NB.
