Car Parking

Supporters are strongly advised to use public transport or utilise car sharing and give themselves plenty of time for travel. Supporters are requested to respect the surrounding areas and show consideration to neighbouring residents. The local police teams may ticket cars that are illegally or inconsiderately parked. Durham Road and Wood Vue tend to be very congested on match days so we recommend away supporters use the main Car Parks in the town centre, which is a short walk from the ground. Parking is free. Don’t however use the Iceland / Home Bargains car park as you are liable to get a fine or clamped after a couple of hours. All spectators are advised to arrive at least half an hour before kick off to avoid potential congestion at the turnstiles in Wood Vue & Tees Crescent which will be open from 1:30pm for both sets of supporters.
