If driving to ground: Leave the M6 at Junction 15 and then go straight across the roundabout onto the A500 (Queensway) towards Stoke. Continue along the A500 following signs for the A50 towards Derby. At the top of the slip road at the Sideway roundabout take the second exit and and after a 100 yards then move into the second from left lane (signposted Britannia Stadium). You can see the stadium over on your right. Turn right at the top of the slip road and then right at the next roundabout for the stadium.
