I've always parked in the Astra Seal car park opposite the Tavern but it gets on your nerves getting out of that place as you can queue for hours!

yeah i think villagaz parks there too callum ,,  ,  i have a theory , the closer you park to Villa Park , the longer it will take you to get home  , unless you leave before the end of  every match ,,,,,and some do

Freddy,

if you are going A45 route back, this is the best parking and easiest way out I have found.

Free parking on Chester street and walk in past Harley Davidson and manor tavern.

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/52.4967897,-1.8811/52.507247,-1.8815173/@52.5023402,-1.8839631,15.42z/data=!4m19!4m18!1m15!3m4!1m2!1d-1.8835166!2d52.4983861!3s0x4870bca0f59e22df:0x6954ab61254d7d06!3m4!1m2!1d-1.8792331!2d52.5007723!3s0x4870bb5f2c46e8d1:0x34c31a79ea56aed!3m4!1m2!1d-1.8799672!2d52.5021487!3s0x4870bb58c322db31:0xd9c06c33825c8060!1m0!3e2

 

on the way out drive to the top of Chester street past Campiniles hotel and a little slip road leads you onto the ring road, then on till you hit the A45.

done this route for last 6 years, best fro getting away quickly, just a little bit of walking.

Been in Coventry for the last 20 years. Up Wykin / Walsgrave area. 

15 mine late for kick off on Tuesday due to the bloody M6. Although it's my side of town, sometimes the A45 is easier.

From back end of nuneaton originally going towards Coleshill,  Ansley Arley and galley common when it was just a small village.
