The Champion Hill ground is largely open and has mostly flat standing areas on three sides, with just a small portion (a few steps high) of terracing towards the rear. Both the East and West ends are uncovered, as well as most of the Southside, although this does have a small portion of cover and terrace located at its centre. However, the Tommy Jover Main Stand on the other side is quite a posh looking affair, even though it has been built onto the front of an office building. This all seated stand is elevated, meaning that you have to climb a small set of stairs to enter it. Once there you are rewarded with excellent views of the pitch as there are no supporting pillars to contend with. There is a glassed area visible to the back of this covered stand that contains the Social Club. The area is covered and the roof has a gable on top which includes a clock. DHFC is proudly emblazoned below it. There is a large ugly radio mast that overlooks the ground from the South West corner. The East End of the ground is also known as the Car Wash End.

Dulwich Hamlet are a well-supported club, which can make for a good atmosphere. Normally visiting fans are made welcome and a sign of this is that fans are very rarely segregated at the ground.

There is a club house at the ground which welcomes away fans. Otherwise, if you turn right out of East Dulwich station, then there is the Cherry Tree pub down on the left. 

Leave the M25 at Junction 7 and take the M23 towards London. At the end of the M23 take the A23 towards Croydon. Continue along the A23 towards Central London through Croydon and then Streatham. On reaching the junction with the South Circular A205 turn right towards Dulwich. After passing Dulwick Park on your left, turn left onto Lordship Lane (A2216) towards East Dulwich. Go through East Dulwich and go straight on when you come to a roundabout. You will pass East Dulwich station on your left. And then just past the small park on your left turn left into Sainsbury's. The ground is located to the left of the store. There is a small car park at the ground, otherwise street parking.

East Dulwich Railway Station is around 200 yards from the ground and is only around a 5-10 minute walk away. It is served by trains from London Bridge. As you leave the station turn left along the main road and just before the East Dulwich Fish and Chip Shop, turn left into St Francis Road. At the end of this road proceed along the short pathway in front and then turn right into Abbotswood Road. The club entrance is along this road on the left next to the Sainsbury's Supermarket.
