Travel information ahead of this weekend's trip to London


The Boleyn Ground is impressive with the main stand, opened in 2001, a large two tiered structure that the West Ham supporters say is the largest football stand in London.

The Hammers have also re-developed both stands behind the goals. Stoke supporters will be housed in the stand behind the goal known as the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand.

On your way to the stadium, if you get the chance, have a look at the statue outside the Boleyn Pub, which shows the England players Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters celebrating winning the World Cup in 1966.

It is a fine statue and is one that comes close to the wonderful statue of Sir Stanley Matthews that we are so proud to have here at the Britannia Stadium.


From the Britannia take the M6 Southbound (use M6 Toll if traffic heavy) to join the M1.

Continue Southbound to leave the M1 at Junction 6A to join M25 Eastbound (S/P Stansted Airport, Dartford).

Leave M25 at Junction 27 to join M11 (S/P London).

In 7 miles, branch left as Motorway merges onto A406 (S/P N Circular, A406 [ S ] , A12, A13). Do NOT follow signs for The City.

After 2 miles, branch left onto A124 (fourth exit at roundabout / S/P East Ham).

Continue on A124 towards Upton Park, Plaistow. Ground on your right at The Boleyn public house junction.

There is no official car park - mainly street parking off the Barking Road on your left once past East Ham Town Hall.

(Sat Nav: E13 9AZ)


189 miles, with an approximate journey time of around 3 hours 40 minutes.


We recommend getting the train from Stoke Station direct to London Euston, and from there getting on the underground (the District Line / Green coded) direct to Upton Park station. 

Travel time from the City centre is approximately 35 minutes.

*Check with National Rail Enquiries on 08457 48 49 50 for train information.
