Getting there

By Car:
The ground is situated on the A202, near the junction with the A3 and A24, just south of Vauxhall Bridge and 10 minues from Victoria and Waterloo.
No match day car parking is available at or in the vicinity of the ground and we advise all customers to use public transport. We only offer parking to Blue Badge holders, which is situated off site on Major Match Days. However, this is very limited and is distributed on a first come first served basis.

By Train:
Take South West Trains to Vauxhall station which is a ten minute walk from the ground. The station is well served by trains throughout Surrey and Hampshire as well as from the Greater London area.
