EBBSFLEET TRAVEL INFO: Coaches, Trains and Automobiles
Tomorrow the Crows visit Ebbsfleet United in the 3rd Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy. To help make your day as enjoyable as possible we’d like to make all fans aware of the following information.
TRAVELLING BY COACH
There are 4 coaches going from Royston to Ebbsfleet and PRE_BOOKING is essential.
The coaches will be leaving from the Town Hall Car Park, King James Way at 12 NOON – please do not be late! Return times will be advised but please bear in mind that tomorrows game will be played to a result. This means that there will NOT be a replay and the game could be settled by Extra Time and, if needed, penalties.
TRAVELLING BY TRAIN
For those travelling to Ebbsfleet by train, you will need to make your way to London (ideally either Kings Cross or St. Pancras) and then transfer to the high speed ‘Javelin’ train at St Pancras. The journey time from St. Pancras to Ebbsfleet International is just 17 minutes and there are around 4 trains an hour.
The Kuflink Stadium, Stonebridge Road, is approximately a 10 minute walk from Ebbsfleet International station.
Please note: There is a reduced Great Northern and Thameslink service from Royston to London tomorrow with just 2 trains per hour. Trains are expected to be busier than normal due to engineering diversions between Peterborough and Hitchin via Cambridge.
TRAVELLING BY CAR
For those driving to Ebbsfleet, directions are as follows:
From the motorway
Exit the M25 at Junction 2 and take the A2 signposted Canterbury. Leave the A2 at the Northfleet/Gravesend West junction. At roundabout, follow signs to Ebbsfleet International Station/A226 which will take you on to Thamesway and past Ebbsfleet International. The stadium is at the end of the road. For car parking see below or contact the club if you have specific parking needs (for example, disabled parking).
From Gravesend town centre
Follow the one-way system round to the railway station, turning right at the top of the road by the traffic lights. At the next junction, take left turn on to New Road/Overcliffe. Continue straight for about two miles to London Road, then The Hill, then Northfleet High Street and finally past The Hive down to Stonebridge Road. The ground is at the bottom of the hill by the roundabout.
We have been advised that there is very limited space down side streets. The Thamesway (between the station and the roundabout outside the stadium) is designated a ‘Clearway’ and any cars parked along there are liable to be ticketed. There is also very limited space available in surrounding residential streets.
Supporters are encouraged to use Ebbsfleet International Station which offers secure matchday parking in its Car Park C for £3. It is just over five minutes walk from the ground and is the best bet for a parking space in the area. The club strongly advises use of this car park to avoid problems of vandalism or cars being ticketed. Please aid the gate staff by having small change to hand.
AT THE GROUND
Tomorrow’s game is unsegregated, therefore away supporters can use the home turnstiles and make use of the club bar.
Adults (17-59) £17
Concessions (60+) £14
Students (with ID) £14
Juniors (12-16) £9
Kids (Under 11) £1
PLEASE NOTE – admission is by CASH ONLY. There are no facilities to pre-purchase tickets or pay by card at the gate. Some Main Stand seats may be reserved so please observe any reserved signage. Stewards reserve the right to perform bag searches.
Safe travels and COME ON YOU CROWS!
