What's Kingfield Stadium Like?
The ground has an impressive and fairly modern looking single tiered stand situated at one end of the ground. This stand, the Leslie Gosden Stand, towers above the rest of the stadium. At the other end is a small covered terrace, called the Kingfield Road End, whilst on one side there is a small open terrace, called the Chris Lane Terrace. This terrace looks a little ugly as it has quite large warehouse type structures, sitting behind it, which comprise the David Lloyd gym and tennis club. On the other side are a couple of small strange looking, covered seated stands, I guess one of which at one time was the Main Stand, as this has the team dugouts located in front. There is a portion of terracing to one side of this and some portakbins offices at the other end. These stands seem quite old and unfortunately they look to have better days. However, one nice feature is the abundance of greenery, with lots of trees surrounding the stadium.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?

Certainly one of the better days out in the Conference, with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There is normally no segregation for away fans. However if segregation is in place then normally the whole of the Chris Lane (Tennis Club) Terrace and in some circumstances part of Bellway Homes Stand Stand are allocated to away fans. Catering includes Cheeseburgers (3.20), Burgers (3), Pasties (2.20), various Pies (2.20) and Chips (1).

Adam Beal a visiting AFC Wimbledon supporter adds; 'I found it difficult to find a parking space in the local streets, but did so eventually, may be an idea to consider public transport next time. The food in the Leslie Gosden Stand is run by a local fish and chip company and was of a really good quality and gave the stand a great smell. The Club Bar was hospitable if not overly lively, with some pleasant banter amongst supporters. Overall a very pleasant ground and an enjoyable night'. .

Where To Drink?
Tom McNamara informs me; 'There is the Cardinals Bar situated behind the Main Stand where away fans are normally welcome and there is usually a good and lively atmosphere there'. It also has a large screen television showing Sky Sports. However, away fans are only allowed in when there is non segregation of fans for the forthcoming match. Paul Hennessy adds; 'The nearest pub to the ground is the the Kingfield Arms. It is located about 300 meters from the ground down Kingfield Road towards Old Woking. The landlord is friendly and caters for Football fans. There are three television screens which show Sky Sports'.

Otherwise you can take the ten minute walk into Woking town centre, where there are an array of pubs to be found including a Wetherspoons outlet, called the Herbert George Wells on Chertsey Road, which is
listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Towards the town centre on the Guildford Road (A320) is the 'The Sovereigns' which is an Ember Inn.

How To Get There And Where To Park
The 'trick' to finding the ground is to follow signs around Woking for the nearby leisure/sports centre.

From The East:
Leave the M25 at Junction 10 and take the A3 towards Guildford. On approaching Guildford turn right onto the A320 towards Woking. On entering Woking turn right at the roundabout into Wych Hill Lane, towards Old Woking (A247). This road leads into the A247 Kingfield Road and the entrance to the ground is down on the right.

From The West:
Leave the M25 at Junction 11 and take the A317 and then the A320 towards Woking. Continue on the A320 through Woking town centre. After passing a hospital on your left you will come to a fork in the road, where you want to leave the A320 and branch left into Claremont Road towards Old Woking (A247). At the bottom of Claremont Road turn left onto the A247 Kingfield Road and the entrance to the ground is down on the right.


There is no parking available as such at the ground. Therefore, it is either street parking (if you arrive early enough there are spaces on Westfield Avenue) or at the Woking Leisure Centre which is opposite the entrance to the ground and is free to park in for up to 4 hours. Otherwise a 15 minute walk way from the ground (and well sign posted) around the town centre is the Heathside multi storey car park, which on Saturday's costs 4.40 for four hours (a walking route is signposted from the car park to the ground).

By Train
Woking train station is about a mile away from the ground and is around a 15-20 minute walk. The station is served by trains from London Waterloo.

Exit the station on the opposite side of the station to the town (Station Approach/Oriental Road side). Turn Right down Station Approach and at the bottom, turn left onto Claremont Road (the A320). At the end of Claremont Road turn left on Kingfield Road and the ground is over the road on your right.
