|What's The Hive Stadium Like?|
|After spending 106 years
at their Underhill ground and being unable to
renew its lease, the Club have now moved to a new
purpose stadium at the Hive Complex. The complex
which is also home to the Club's training facility
in Camrose Avenue,
Edgware, which is just under six
miles away from Underhill.
The stadium itself is a fairly simple affair. On one side is the West Stand which is the largest at the ground. It is a covered, all seated single tiered stand, that is free from supporting pillars. It houses just under 2,700 fans. Both ends are small identical terraces, which are only a few rows high and are roofed. On the remaining side is the East Stand. This is currently an ugly affair, as essentially it is an office building that has had its roof extended outwards towards the pitch, and then had four concrete rows of seats installed in front of it, leaving a large back wall exposed of the office building. The Club do have plans to clad the back wall with club colours and hopefully this will help improve its look. This area has 750 seats, some of which (in the wing area) are not under cover. Oddly the television gantry has not been installed on this side, looking out onto the far more attractive West Stand, but instead has been placed at the rear of the West Stand. The stadium is completed with a set of odd looking floodlights.

|Away fans are mostly housed in the North Terrace at one end of the ground and has a capacity of 871. The roof of this terrace doesn't quite cover all of the front part, so bear this in mind if the weather forecast is not great. It may be a better idea to go for one of the 350 seats that are made available to visiting supporters in the West Stand.|

|There is the Hive Bar at
the stadium but this is for home fans only.
However alcohol is made available to away
supporters inside the stadium, in both the seating
and terraced areas. The nearest pub is Moranos on
Station Road, only a short walk from Canons Park
Underground Station. However although it does show
Sky Sports it is quite a small bar and may be not
suitable for large groups of fans.
Quite close to Kingsbury Tube Station there is a Wetherpoons pub called JJ Moons (which will be familiar to many who have travelled to Wembley Stadium which is not far away). If travelling on the Jubilee Line from Central London, then Kingsbury is only two stops before Canons Park. The address of the pub is 553 Kingsbury Road. Simply turn left out of the station and the pub is down on the left.
An alternative may be to park at Stanmore, where there are more pubs to be found including a Wetherspoons outlet called 'The Man in the Moon' on Buckingham Parade. You can then get the tube from Stanmore to go one stop to Canons Park. You can also park at the tube station at a cost £1.50 all day on a Saturday.
|Leave the M1 at Junction 4 and take the A41
towards Edgware. At the first roundabout take the
3rd exit onto the A410 towards Harrow and Stanmore.
At the next small roundabout turn left at the Esso
Garage/McDonalds towards Edgware. After passing
through a set of traffic lights with the Masons Arms
on one corner and then a Peugeot Garage on the left
then at the next set of traffic lights turn right
into Camrose Avenue. The entrance to the stadium is
down this road on the right.
There is a large car park at the stadium, with 350 spaces, costing £5 per car. However with only one exit available then expect some delays after the game on leaving the car park. Otherwise street parking. although no parking is available on Camrose Avenue itself.

|The nearest London Underground station is Canons Park which is on the Jubilee Line. It is around a ten minute walk away from the stadium. As you come out of the station turn left and at a convenient point crossover to the other side of the road. You will come to some metal railings where there is an entrance to some playing fields which you can walk through to the ground. This also brings you out at the North Terrace End of the stadium which is reserved for away fans.|
