TRAVEL

By Car

Exit the M2 at junction 4 onto the A278. Follow signs for Gillingham driving over two roundabouts before taking the first exit off the third roundabout onto the A2. Continue until you come to the next roundabout (Premier Inn to your left) and take the third exit onto the A289. At the first roundabout take the first exit onto Cornwallis Avenue. Continue along Cornwallis Avenue over the traffic lights before turning right into Toronto Road. Take the second left off Toronto into Redfern Avenue, where you will see the Priestfield Stadium on your left.

By Train

The fastest way for many visiting supporters travelling to the MEMS Priestfield Stadium will be on Southeastern’s High Speed service from St Pancras. The service, which will typically stop at Stratford International, Ebbsfleet International, takes around 40 minutes. However, because it is Southeastern’s flagship service, tickets cost more than those to Gillingham from other London termini.

When a full service is running, four trains per hour depart from London Victoria, two of which will typically take 50 minutes, the other around 70.

On leaving Gillingham station turn left on to Balmoral Road. Walk for about five minutes down Balmoral Road until you come to the end. Straight opposite Balmoral Road you will see Priestfield Road. The away turnstiles are located at the top of Priestfield Road. The walk from the station should take no longer than 10 minutes.

 

PARKING

This is restricted to roads surrounding the Stadium but visiting supporters should note that the following roads are restricted to permit holders only. A list of roads to avoid are as follows: Balmoral Road, Windsor Road, Ferndale Road, Linden Avenue, Priestfield Road, Gordon Road, Livingstone Road, Coulman Street, Beaconsfield Avenue, Harold Avenue, School Lane, Toronto Road, Redfern Avenue and parts of Sunnymead Avenue.

Traffic Wardens often undertake patrols on matchdays so it is strongly recommended you choose alternative parking areas. Suggested alternative include: eastern end of Sunnymead Avenue, Chicago Avenue, Canadian Avenue, Valley Road, Sturdee Avenue, Woodlands Road, Carlton Avenue, Alexandra Avenue, Larkfield Avenue, Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.

Woodlands Primary School has offered the use of its car parks for supporters’ use. Its 100-plus spaces will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at £3 each from 1.30pm.

 

COACH INFORMATION

All coaches should set down supporters at the Croneens Yard car park which is situated in Railway Street. It is a five-minute walk from here back along Gillingham Road to the away supporters entrance at the Priestfield Road Turnstile.
