Getting to Hillsborough
Leave the M1 at Junction 36 and follow the A61 into Sheffield. Continue along the A61 for approximately eight miles. You will see Hillsborough Stadium on your right. This is not the shortest route to the ground, but this is definitely the easiest and avoids Sheffield City Centre. There is some street parking to be had if you arrive early, otherwise there are some unofficial car parks along the A61 that charge in the region of £4. Gary Rickett-Ambrose adds; 'There is a car park directly behind the Kop and the Wednesday Clubshop. It is called the Wednesdayite car park and is open to fans of both teams.
Wednesdayite car park is located rite behind the Kop. It is open to fans both home and visitor, but costs £5 for visiting fans. There is also good parking at the Meadowhall Railway Station. The station is near the famous shopping centre and boasts loads of open parking spaces.
