Getting There

By car: 
On the A102 take the Blackwall Tunnel and A13 to Canning Town, then follow signs East Ham A124 in 1.7 miles turn left into Green Street.

On Saturday matchdays, parking is very restricted with little or no off-road parking. The best areas to look for spaces are roads left off Barking Road, once you are past the lights at East Ham Town Hall. You can park at Newham General Hospital, where there is a pay and display car park and is about a 15 minute stroll away from the ground.

By train:
Use the District Line tube to Upton Park (closest but packed after the match). Alternatively use East Ham or Plaistow (a further walk but quieter). 

Did You Know...
In August 1944, a V-1 flying bomb landed on the south-west corner of the pitch, forcing the club to play its games away from home while repairs were undertaken.
