Match day parking


Residents within Controlled Parking Zones F, J, K*, L, M/N, S and T have the benefit of additional enforcement during Watford FC's first team matches at Vicarage Road Stadium.

In addition to the usual restrictions which apply between 8:00am and 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday, on match days parking restrictions will apply:

  • up to 10:00pm for weekday evening matches
  • between 1:00pm and 6:30pm for Sunday matches
  • between 8:00am to 6:30pm on Bank Holiday matches  


Only holders of valid permits or vouchers will be allowed to park in the permit bays within the match day parking zones.

Parking across driveways, which are within permit bays, is not permitted unless it is your own driveway and you are displaying a valid permit or voucher.

Yellow lines

Single yellow lines are also active during the operational hours of the zone, including match days, which means that they cannot be parked on.

Shared use bays suspension

The shared use bays in front of Vicarage Road Stadium will be suspended from four hours before the start of any matches that are subject to match day enforcement.

*Residents living in Zone K are advised to seek alternative parking within their zone.
