The Stadium has spaces for around 1600 cars at each game. Parking is free of charge and on a 'first come first served' basis and for big games the main car park does get full before kick off although there is generally still space in the overflow parking at the back of the Vue Cinema.

There are specific marked spaces for disabled supporters near to each stand.

Call 0208 939 2300 for full details on disabled tickets.

There is some road parking near the ground, with spaces often to be found between the stadium and the Watlington Road roundabout. All supporters attending games are asked to respect the Residents Only schemes that operate in the nearby streets and not to park on the double yellow lines on approach roads. The lines do include the grass verges along the edge of the road as well and the club will not accept responsibility for any parking tickets issued to motorists who park there.
