Aston Villa Match Day Secure Site Parking

King Edwards VI Aston School is situated just a short walk across Aston Park from the Aston Villa Football Club ground, Trinity Road. We have strong ties with the club and for each home game we open the School playgrounds for ‘Match Day Parking’.We are one of the most secure car-parking sites for the football ground, with the grounds locked and patrolled during the match. We have nearly one hundred parking permit holders who pay per season to park with us. We then supplement this with up to 100 additional “pay and park” cars for home and visiting supporters.

How to find us

Follow our KEVI Aston Parents’ Association sign from the traffic lights on Victoria Rd/Upper Sutton St, turn right into Albert St, past school and left into Upper Thomas St to the school’s main gate.

Post Code: B6 6DJ.

Match Day Parking Costs 

We charge £6 per car and £10 per van or minibus on the gate.  Parking for other events such as Music Concerts at the Villa is provided too but will be charged at a higher rate.

Opening Times

We open the main gate on Upper Thomas St approximately three hours before kick off.  We are very close to Villa Park,  it is just a short 10 minute walk down to ground.

We do not pre-book one off parking spaces and we have experienced some very busy matches recently so please be parked at least an hour before the kick off to be confident of a space.

We do operate an prepaid, season, parking permit scheme, so later on there may appear to be lots of spaces left but they are pretty much all pre paid permit spaces.

Home and Away Fans are both welcome and we enjoy a family atmosphere on site whatever the weather!

Closing Times

Gate Close One Hour after Final Whistle.  Please be back to collect your car within one hour of the final whistle so our parent volunteer stewards can lock up and go home.

Car are directed off site via the main gate and via the bottom gate on Frederick Rd at the end of the match.


There are no public toilet facilities or refreshments provided on site.

Winter Weather Warnings

If a match goes ahead when it snows we endeavour to have the car park clear for parking.  Follow advice on the main Aston Villa website.
