Kingfield Stadium Like?
|What's Kingfield Stadium Like?|
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 (£2.50)
and Chips (£1).
|Where To Drink?|
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).

|Woking train station is about a mile away
from the ground and is around a 20 minute walk, it
is though well signposted. 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.
