Visiting the Kuflink Stadium

STADIUM ADDRESS

The Kuflink Stadium,
Stonebridge Road, Northfleet, Kent DA11 9GN

DIRECTIONS

ARRIVING BY ROAD
i. 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).

ii. 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.

ARRIVING BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The nearest stations are Northfleet (take Gravesend service from Charing Cross, Waterloo East and London Bridge) and Ebbsfleet International. From Northfleet, go (more or less) straight ahead until you reach the main road. Turn left, walk to the bottom of the hill and the ground is on your right.

The high-speed rail service from London St Pancras to Ebbsfleet International (15-18 minutes journey time) will also take you to within walking distance of the ground. Proceed through Car Park C and out on to the roundabout where you will see the stadium in front of you.

If you are staying in Gravesend, you can get a bus to the ground from Gravesend station. Come out of the station on the Town side and turn right. There are bus stops just by the station – the 480/490 service will drop you outside the ground. Alternatively take the FASTRACK “B” Service, which also serves Ebbsfleet International.

CAR PARKING

There is limited space down side streets and 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 limited space available in surrounding residential streets.

We would encourage all spectators 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. High-value notes cannot be changed on the premises.

We have bike racks inside the stadium for those of you wishing to lock up bicycles.

AWAY FANS

Where matches are unsegregated, away supporters can use the home turnstiles and make use of the club bar. If games are segregated, away fans must use the turnstiles at the Swanscombe End of the ground. These can be found by going past the home turnstiles and carrying on about 150 yards to the red gate on your right. Turn into the car park and the away turnstiles are straight ahead.

The following items must not be brought to the Kuflink Stadium: weapons, narcotics, fireworks/flares and smoke bombs are all banned. Stewards reserve the right to perform bag searches for security reasons.
