Getting there
By Car: (approx 29 miles from HW)
M40 east to join M25 south. Join M4 at junction 15 and continue to junction 2. Continue on the A4 beneath the M4 until you reach the Chiswick roundabout. At the roundabout take the exit to return back up the A4. Stay on the A4, (signposted Staines), passing Griffin Park on your left. After 1.5 miles turn left at the traffic lights into Boston Manor Road (A3002). This is the recommended area for parking. See the map above for exact ground location. Check www.rac.co.uk for specific or more detailed directions.
Train: Nearest station Brentford (about 0.5 miles). Trains run from Waterloo. From High Wycombe go to Marylebone and take the Bakerloo line Southbound to Waterloo. Alternatively travel from Paddington mainline station to Ealing Broadway (about 2 miles from ground) and then walk south down the High Street (B455) towards Brentford or catch a No.65 bus that stops close to the ground.
The most convenient Underground Station travelling from Wycombe is to head for South Ealing on the Piccadilly Line, about a mile from the ground. Turn right out of the station and head down South Ealing Road. Griffin Park is about 400 yards on the right after you pass under the M4. This is also on the No.65 bus route. Check www.nationrail.co.uk for specific times and connections of trains.
