By car from the M25:
The easiest way to get to The Valley by car is to use the A2, accessed from junction two of the M25 (those heading south via the M1, A1 or M11 should head clockwise on the M25, signposted 'Dartford Crossing').
Heading into London along the A2, the dual carriageway becomes the A102M - the approach road to the Blackwall Tunnel. Leave at the junction after the A2 exit and take the right-hand exit at the roundabout - the A206 Woolwich Road.
After the major set of traffic lights at Anchor and Hope Lane and Charlton Church Lane, travel around second roundabout and take the last exit to drive back on yourself. Then take the first left into Charlton Lane. Cross the railway line and continue up the road, then right into Harvey Gardens. The stadium is on the left.
Access to Floyd Road and Harvey Gardens is restricted on matchdays.
Via the South Circular
Follow the A205 South Circular Road to Woolwich and turn left into the Woolwich Road at the roundabout for the free ferry. You should then turn left into Charlton Lane and proceed as described above.
From central London
From north of The Thames, take the A102 through the Blackwall Tunnel. Come off at the second junction and take the first exit at the roundabout. Go along the A206 Woolwich Road as above.
Train and Tube services
Southeastern runs train services to the railway station at Charlton, from central London in the west and north Kent to the east. The station is a short walk from the ground.

Parking at the ground

In many roads around The Valley there are restrictions in force.
Yellow lines apply at weekends, as well as weekdays, and most parking bays are free - except around the railway station. The use of some of the bays, however, is suspended on matchdays.
Restrictions are vigorously enforced, and local retail car parks operate a clamping policy.
The club recommends using public transport whenever practical.
