Wimbledon By Road/Parking


From Outside London
Leave the M25 at Junction 10 and take the A3 towards London. Follow the A3 for around 11 miles and at the exit for New Malden/Worcester Park, turn off and take the left turn into Malden Road (A2043) towards Kingston. Follow this to the next roundabout. Take the left filter lane and the first exit into Kingston Road (A2043 still) and Kingsmeadow Stadium is one mile on the left (not far past the Homebase Design Centre that you will pass on your right).

From Central London
Take the A3 out of London, exiting at New Malden/Worcester Park. Cross over the A3, and take the Malden Road (A2043) towards Kingston. Follow this to the next roundabout. Take the first exit into Kingston Road (A2043 still) and Kingsmeadow is one mile on the left.

There are 350 car parking spaces at the ground which are free. However, as you would expect it fills up pretty quickly. For Saturday games, to be in with a chance of securing a space you need to arrive before 1.30 pm at the latest. Otherwise street parking. There is also the option of renting a private driveway in the local area via: YourParkingSpace.co.uk

Wimbledon Where to Drink

There are two large bars located inside the main Paul Strank Stand. Away supporters are generally welcome to frequent the bars, however for the bigger games, and/or when it is all ticket, the bars are reserved for home fans only. On my visit, I felt that the inside of the bar that I frequented, was a bit dim and drab looking, but with a real ale on offer from a local brewery and a barbecue selling burgers and hot dogs outside, its plus points outweighed the negative ones!

Terry Morton a visiting Bristol Rovers fan informs me; 'I found a small pub called the Bricklayers Arms on Hawks Road, which is around a ten minute walk away from the stadium. They had real ale and showed televised football. There was a nice of mix of home and away fans present on my visit.' To find this pub, then with the entrance to the Kingsmeadow Stadium behind you, turn left along Kingston Road which becomes Cambridge Road. Where the road forks, bear left (signposted Surbiton) into Hawks Road and the pub is down on the right.

Otherwise, there is not much near to the ground, with a number of pubs closing in recent years. You could drink in Kingston or New Malden town centres and then get a bus to the ground (or a long walk!). The 131 bus passes the ground and goes through both town centres. If in Kingston, catch a bus heading to Tooting Broadway; if in New Malden, catch a bus heading to Kingston. On New Malden High Street there is a Wetherspoons outlet called the Watchman. See the London Bus Routes website for timetable details.

If you have a bit of time on your hands, like real ale, or perhaps travelling in via Kingston Railway Station. Then on Willoughby Road is the Willoughby Arms which normally has seven real ales on tap

Wimbledon by Train

The nearest railway station to the ground is Norbiton, which is about a 15 minute walk away. The station is served by trains from London Waterloo via Clapham Junction and Wimbledon.

Leave the station via the back exit (Westbound platform), and take the first left onto Norbiton Avenue. At the end of the avenue, turn right Gloucester Road, and at the end of Gloucester Road turn left into Cambridge Road. The main entrance to Kingsmeadow is 400 yards down on the right, with the away entrance a little further on past this on the right-hand side and is well sign posted. Thanks to John Woodruff for providing the directions.

Dave Nathan adds; 'New Malden station is also in walking distance of the ground. This may be a preferred route for away fans as there are better pubs in New Malden namely Bar Malden and the Glasshouse both outside New Malden station and The Fountain at the Fountain Roundabout. Come out of New Malden station and follow the High Street to the left, and proceed up to the Fountain Roundabout. At the roundabout turn right into Kingston Road towards Kingston (or jump on a 131 bus) and the ground is a good mile on the left after passing under the railway bridge and Homebase on your right. This will take about 25 minutes to walk'.

TRAINS

FROM LONDON

From Waterloo regular trains take about 25 minutes to Norbiton.

Cost from London £12.00 return, cheaper with railcards or oyster card or
For four travelling together £31.60 (£7.90 each)

Cost from Southend £18.50 cheaper with railcards or
For four travelling together £48.80 (£12.20 each)

If you are travelling from Southend it is worth giving consideration to the coach services mentioned elsewhere which will be easier,

As always all information is given in good faith, but please check out carefully for yourself before booking

WHAT’S IT LIKE FOR AWAY FANS

Away fans are mostly housed on one side of the RyGas Stand at one side of the pitch. This small shallow terrace is partly covered to the rear and can accommodate up to 725 visiting fans. It is shared with home supporters. Away fans are located towards the John Green Stand side of the terrace and are adequately separated from the home fans. There is also a small flat standing area beside the stand which also leads to the refreshment area and toilets. In addition, approximately 94 seats are made available in the John Green Stand, which is a relatively new covered stand. Turnstiles open 90 minutes before kick off.

Please note that the away terrace and seating areas are not accessible by going through the main entrance to the stadium car park. Away fans should instead continue going a short way along Kingston Road (keeping the main entrance on the right) and take the next right at the railings in-between the terraced houses (opposite King Henry's Road) to go down to the away supporters turnstiles. Outside the stadium near the main entrance is a handy chip shop whilst a bit further along is the amusingly named 'Fat Boys Cafe'. I also noticed outside the Main Stand a vendor displaying and selling the largest array of different football badges, that I think I have ever seen!

Food on offer inside the ground includes; a range of Pies; All Steak, Chicken Balti, Meat & Potato and Cheese & Onion (all £3.50), Cheeseburgers (£4.50), Burgers (£4), Gourmet Hot Dogs (£5) and Chips (£2.50).
