- Credit: PA
Norwich City travel to Nottinghamshire on Saturday to face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. Here is our guide for Canaries fans on travel, food and drink.
• By car
Norwich to Nottingham by car takes just under two and a half hours. As you arrive at the 'Saxondale Island' near Bingham follow the signposts to join the A52 towards Radcliffe-on-Trent and Nottingham. Follow the A52 through Radcliffe and continue until you reach the next roundabout then take the second exit onto the A6011. Continue along the A6011 following the road as it bends to the right and continue over Lady Bay Bridge and then follow local signs for matchday parking.
Parking at the ground is limited and priority is given to disabled supporters, coaches, players, match and club officials. There are a number of Nottingham Forest FC approved car parks near the ground including ones at Meadow Lane, Victoria Embankment and County Hall.

WHERE TO DRINK
Nearly all of the pubs near to the ground are for home fans only. The Meadow Club on Meadow Lane is the 'unofficial' pub for away supporters. It is next to Notts County FC and can be reached by walking along the A60 and over Trent Bridge.
There are also a number of pubs at the train station and at the Waterfront complex.
WHERE TO EAT
Near the City Ground there is a good selection of high-street brands such as McDonalds and Co-Op, as well as independent fast food outlets selling kebabs and chips. There is more choice in the city centre and by the train station.
