Gloucestershire Cricket is one of the 18 first class County Cricket Clubs in the UK. We were established in 1870, with WG Grace a founding member, one of the most famous and influential cricketers in history.
The Club is based in the heart of Bristol, in the Bishopston area, just off the Gloucester Road at our home ground, The Brightside Ground, Bristol. The Bristol Pavilion offers state of the art media and hospitality facilities and enjoys superb views of the ground from behind the bowlers arm.

This also means that you are free to wander around the ground and are not restricted to certain areas or stands. Seating is based on a first come, first served basis, so arrive early if you like to watch the match from a certain place.
Unless you have already purchased a 2016 parking permit, match day parking at The Brightside Ground, Bristol, will not be available. Parking for permit holders will be available on a first come, first served basis and cannot be guaranteed.
In addition, we have a limited number of disabled car parking spaces available.
