I'm out. My car is well and truly wrecked. Won't survive a short trip to Nottingham, nevermind Norwich.

Setting off at 10:30 tommorro, will take at least 3 hours. No Motorways either. :o

No, we can't cope with motorways here in East Anglia. Waaayyy too tricky! :laugh:

Right... some ideas re parking. The car park away fans tend to be signed to is at County Hall, just off Europa Way. It's easy to find, just take the A146 junction off the A47 Southern bypass and follow the signs. Multimap link. Can't remember how much it is, but I don't think it's too bad. Disadvantage is that it's the 'wrong' side of the ground for the best pubs etc but if you don't mind a bit of a walk past the ground to 'em you're fine or if you're literally just going for the game.

Most convenient place closest to the ground is the Riverside Multi-storey (coming in from the same direction as above, go past the ground on your right and it's on the left before you get to the station - entrance is just past Big W and Morrisons). It's pricier and could well fill up quickly though, but it's best location-wise. Last time I parked in there... and, if you're lucky enough to bag a space and will be there for less than 3 hours, parking is free if your ticket is validated by the UCI cinema next door (if anyone else local knows otherwise, please chip in). Now obviously, we're all honest folks on here but the few times I've been to Carrow Road and parked here I've later popped into the cinema and talked nicely to the staff, explaining how I "forgot to get my ticket stamped before I went into the 'film' - could they help me at all?" - they've been very compliant and validated my ticket without question! ;):P

There's very little street parking. If you want to try to find it head out of the city on the Yarmouth Road (A1242) and try some of the side streets - beware though, those nearer the ground/station are residents only. Some businesses behind the station (Thorpe Road -see multimap link above) open up, but it's luck of the draw really.

A word of warning - the car parks in front of Morrisons, Big W etc (almost opposite the ground) have a 2 hour 'free parking' limit. This is enforced with number plate recognition technology and is strict in the extreme. If you push your luck by staying any longer (and that includes the time you queue to get out of 'em) although you won't know about it at the time you can expect to receive a hefty charge in the post. Don't say you weren't warned!!!! Worth trying them tho if you're there early and just need to park up for a short while to collect tickets.

If anyone wants more info, let me know on here or PM me. Happy to help if I can.

Doubt many people will want to risk getting there to find out they can't get tickets because they've sold out. Potter should be fine.

Yes?

I just didn't see the point of it, why mock the efforts? May not be great, but still.

I've had a good day today. We didn't lose, had a laugh on the journey, and backed the no-goalscorer. Can't really complain.
