What's The Park View Road Like?
On one side is a classic old looking seated Main Stand. This stand which was opened in 1950 (and extended later in the 1960's) is covered and runs for about 2/3rds of the length of the pitch. The angle of the stand is quite steep, meaning that fans are kept quite close to the playing action, however there are a row of supporting pillars running across the front of the stand which could impede your view. Opposite is the much newer East Stand which was opened in 2002. Also known as the Cricket Club side this stand is all covered and all seated. It has a capacity of 600. However it only runs half the length of the pitch (towards the Danson Park End) and has a pair of pillars on either side which also serve as floodlight pylons. One of these could impede your view of the playing action down at the High Street End. On the other side of te East Stand is an ugly looking building which houses a social club and adjacent to this is a flat standing area.

Both ends are open terraces. The larger of these is at the Danson Park End, which looks quite picturesque with a number of large trees behind it. Opposite is the smaller High Street End. This end is located very close to the main road and passengers on the upper deck of passing buses can see into the ground. There is some netting at the back of the terrace to help prevent balls being kicked over, but I am sure that every now and again a stray ball must make it over! The
ground is shared with Erith and Belvedere FC.

What Is It Like For Away Supporters?

When segregation is in force the away fans are allocated the whole of the East Stand and the Danson Park Terrace. The terrace is open to the elements so if the weather forecast is not good, then it may be an idea to seek out one of the seats in the East Stand, as they are under roof. There are 600 seats with around 400 standing places available. Normally a good and relaxed day out. The proximity of the High Street means that there are plenty of eating and drinking choices available.

Where To Drink?

As mentioned there is a Social Club at the ground that welcomes away fans. The entrance is located just outside the ground by the turnstiles. Otherwise almost next door to the stadium is a pub called the ‘Guy Earl of Warwick’. Further along the High Street there is the Nag's Head and a Wetherspoon pub called the New Cross Turnpike. If you take a left out of the ground onto the main road, then passing the Guy Earl Of Warwick pub on your left then you'll reach the Nag's Head over on the right and then the Wetherspoons is further down on the left.

How To Get There And Where To Park

Leave the M25 at Junction 2 and take the A2 towards Central London. Leave the A2 at the third exit (signposted A221 to Bexleyheath and Sidcup).  Take the A221 towards Bexleyheath and at the next roundabout turn right (3rd exit) continue towards Bexleyheath. You will go under a bridge that carries the A2. At the next roundabout take the second exit into Danson Road. Follow this road until your reach a T-junction. At these traffic lights turn left into Park View Road. The ground is down on the left. There is no car park at the ground as such, but there is plenty of street parking available.

By Train

Welling station is situated just under a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from London Victoria and London Charing Cross. As you come out of the station entrance turn right and at the bottom of this road turn left onto Central Avenue. This leads onto a T-Junction with Bellegrove Road (there is the Plough & Harrow pub in front of you which shows SKY Sports) at which you turn left. Continue straight along Bellegrove Road and this leads into the High Street. The ground is further down the High Street on your right.
