The ground from a distance looks quite picturesque sitting on the banks of the River Trent. Both ends have been re-developed during the 1990's, much improving the overall appearance. At one end, the Bridgford Stand houses away fans in the lower tier;it is odd because one third of this stand was built lower then the rest, due to a local Council planning requirement to allow sunlight through to the houses in nearby Colwick Road. Opposite, the Trent End, is the most recent addition to the ground. It is a large two tiered stand that looks quite smart. One unusual feature of the stand, is that running across the middle are a number of rows of seatingenclosed within a covered shaded glass area.

Opened in 1931, Donington Park is one of Britain's most popular racing circuits. It is the home of the British Motorcycle Grand Prix (MotoGP) and also plays host to rounds of the British Touring Car Championship, British Formula 3 Championship, British GT Championship, Le Mans Series, and British Superbike Championship. The circuit uses tracks and paths in the parkland at the front of Donington Hall. Initially, it was used only for motorcycle racing. It wasn't long, however, before Fred Craner, a local garage owner and secretary of the Derby and District Motor Club, had persuaded the Sheilds family, who owned Donington Hall, to also allow car racing. To make this possible, the circuit was resurfaced and extended by 1933.
