If you are travelling by car the route is well signposted "Priestfield Stadium " in all directions. Once in the vicinity of the ground follow temporary match day parking signs to local car parks.

 

Please note the toll charges if your journey involves crossing the Dartford Bridge.

 

Coventry City supporters planning on watching the Sky Blues at Gillingham on September 24th are advised that you can no longer pay at the toll booths to use the Dartford Crossing.

To use the Dartford crossing, you need to pay in advance to a new payment scheme called Dart Charge.

You must pay for a crossing in advance or by midnight the day after crossing. You can do this using a pre-pay account, which saves you up to a third on every crossing, or by making a one-off payment.

You can make a one-off payment:

online at www.gov.uk/dart-charge

over the phone by calling: 0300 300 0120

via a payzone retail outlet

by post (in advance only): Dart Charge Customer Services PO Box 842 Leeds LS1 9QF

 

You can avoid the bridge/tunnel and the charges altogether, by taking the M1 to junction 6A and then taking the M11, onto the A406 S and then the A13 / Newham Way. After 3.5miles, take the sliproad left to A102 / Blackwall Tunnel Northern Approach towards Isle of Dogs / Canary Wharf / C London  and then on to the A2. At junction 1, take sliproad left to A289 towards Grain / Gillingham and follow to Gillingham.

-  from the South :
Exit the M2 at junction 4 onto the A278. Follow signs for Gillingham driving over two roundabouts before taking the first exit off the third roundabout onto the A2. Continue until you come to the next roundabout (Premier Inn to your left) and take the third exit onto the A289. At the first roundabout take the first exit onto Cornwallis Avenue. Continue along Cornwallis Avenue over the traffic lights before turning right into Toronto Road. Take the second left off Toronto into Redfern Avenue, where you will see the Priestfield Stadium on your left.
 
- from the North: 
Exit A2 at junction 1 (M2) onto the A289. Follow signs for Medway Tunnel. After about three miles take the second exit off the roundabout, again following signs towards Medway Tunnel. At the next roundabout take the first exit. At the next roundabout take the first exit into the Tunnel. On exit follow the A289 over two sets of traffic lights before coming to the Strand roundabout. Take the third exit onto Church Street. Drive up the hill and continue over the level crossing. Take the second left after the crossing and follow Linden Drive to the end. Turn right into Redfern Avenue, where you will see the Priestfield Stadium on your right.
