Brief Directions By Road
M1 onto the M62 westbound. Exit at junction 26 onto the M606 spur road signposted Bradford. The ground is well signposted from this point. Following the signs for Bradford Airport go under the tunnel and straight on at traffic lights. Turn left at next roundabout (Wakefield Way) passing over two roundabouts (signposted Shipley A6037). Airedale Road becomes Canal Road then turn left into Station Road (A6177) and left again into Queens Road. Through three sets of lights then turn left into Manningham Lane. The first left is Valley Parade.
Street parking is limited around the ground although the area has its fair share of private pay on exit type car parks which are probably your best bet. Remember Bradford City is numerically the best supported club in the league and gates up to 15,000 are not unusual. It will be busy in the immediate vicinity so get there early.
