Travel advice: Villa away

Manchester United has received the following communication from Aston Villa Football Club:

We recommend fans travelling by car from the North leave the M6 at junction 7 and follow the signs for Birmingham A34. Having passed Alexandra Stadium on the left, all vehicles should stay in the nearside lane.

Leave the main carriageway just prior to the flyover at Perry Barr Greyhound Stadium (do not go over the flyover). The road splits in to four lanes as you approach the traffic lights. Stay in the left-hand lane and you will see signs for matchday parking priced at £4. 

Villa Park is a 10 to 15-minute walk from the car park and using these car parks will ensure you access the motorway quickly after the match.

If you exit at junction 6 you will encounter traffic difficulties, as there are a number of road closures and traffic works both before and after the match that will add unnecessary time to your journey. You can avoid this congestion by using junction 7.

Any disabled supporters should contact Aston Villa's disabled liaison officer on 0121 327 2299 ext 344 for information on disabled parking.
