GETTING TO CHARLTON ATHLETIC

4 November 2016

The Iron make the trip to take on Charlton Athletic in the Emirates FA Cup first round on Saturday. Here’s our guide to the Valley.

The Valley…
When the North Stand opened in 2002, it significantly transformed the whole look of the stadium. Having originally been a single tiered separate stand, it is now two tiered and at the same time completely encloses the North East and North West corners. In total the Valley houses 27,111 supporters, in a stadium which is all seated.

Getting there…
After merging onto the M1, you’ll need to use the three left lanes at junction 6A to take the M25 exit to M11. Then keep right at the fork and merge onto M25, before using the two left lanes at junction 27 to merge onto M11. At junction 4, use any lane to take the A406 (S) exit to A12/A13/N Circular, ahead of merging onto N Circular Road. Use the left two lanes to take the A12 slip road to Central London and, then at the roundabout, take the fifth exit onto Eastern Avenue. Keep right to continue on Blackwall Tunnel, and then take the exit towards A206, before using the left lane to keep right at the fork and continue on Horn Ln. Turn left onto Woolwich Rd and, at the roundabout, take the fourth exit and stay on Woolwich Rd. There’s then two successive left turns onto Charlton Church Ln and Floyd Rd respectively, ahead of two right turns at Ransom Rd and then a final one where the ground will be on he left.

Away fans…
Away fans are housed in the Jimmy Seed Stand, a stand which is raised slightly above pitch level, making for a good view for travelling spectators. Up to 3,000 supporters can be accommodated in the stand, and there are refreshment areas on either side of the stand, with these being located by the entrance turnstiles and also on the opposing side of the south stand.

Parking…
Parking at the ground is for permit holders only. There is street parking, but due to a local residents parking scheme, not in close vicinity to the ground or Charlton railway station. However as you come off the A2 onto the A206, there is some street parking to be had on your right, in a couple of streets, before you reach the Rose of Denmark pub. There is some street parking to be had around the industrial estates in the area, in Westmoor Street, Eastmoor Street, Warspite Road and Ruston Road.

By train...
