Theres free street parking on the other side of the dual carriageway, with a fast out onto the A500. Just dont try crossing the dual carriageway on foot.

Going to try something different on Saturday, I hear the Screwfix warehouse car park is not bad for exit.
That's where I have parked for my last two trips to Stoke. Can be a bit busy on the road from the A34 on the way to Screwfix. Good for getting away after the game.

Worst ground in the PL for parking and getting away. I parked at the very end of Gordon Banks Way, and like last time, the opening away game of about 4 years ago (lost 1-2), I sat motionless for about 45/50 minutes after getting back to my car. All for the princely sum of £6.
Shocking, and whoever is responsible for traffic management at Stoke City FC should be sacked. As I was only like 1/4 mile from the main A road away from the ground. The stewards at the roundabout when I got there seemed clueless on how to get the traffic moving.

It is bad. We went to the rugby club and it was a decent place for a pre-match beer. Easy to get served, cheap and plenty of places to sit down. Getting away afterwards wasn't great, but not helped by loads of their fans leaving when we took the lead and by us hanging around at the end rather than making a quick getaway. I would go there again as it's better than other places I've tried. Might be a while of course!

If I have to go there again I'd investigate trying somewhere on the other side of that main A road.

Another thing, the PA at the ground, how loud? Annoying, head ache inducing?
Everything about the experience apart from the 90 minutes was painful.

Having traveled by train and supped a few in the Terrace in Stoke, I would suggest parking near that bar and getting the shuttle bus to and from the ground for £4. Police escort back to the station!

Mind you, it could be a while before that option is necessary again.

Oddly enough when they scored the Stoke fans chanting seemed very sharp sounding (and I'm high pitch deaf). I thought at the time they either have ten thousand 8 year old girls singing or they replay the home crowd through the tannoy?

Spot on re parking,makes me laugh how Selhurst gets a lot of criticism about difficult it is to park and get away after but grounds like Stoke,Middlesboro are terrible

Screwfix was fine for me - slow to the main road, but to be expected. Was back in West Yorkshire by 5, having made a couple of stops on the way.

Noted. How long a walk is Screwfix, I'm happy to walk up to 30 minutes as long as I can get moving in my car when I get there!

Under 20 minutes - how quick obviously depends on what pace you walk at. Being 6ft 6, I tend to walk quicker than most people

Won't have to worry about parking there for next season though unless we get them in a cup match.

I think scoring late and a lot of their fans leaving early, with us hanging around, may have helped, as the car park was rather empty when we got back - the year before we got stuck in a bit of a queue to even get to the road.
