Away Day Guide – Brentford
Fulham have sold their total allocation of tickets for the local derby and there will no tickets available on the day for Fulham fans.
GETTING TO THE GTECH COMMUNITY STADIUM
Fulham fans planning to drive can book the limited spaces in Brentford’s official Chiswick Park car park via their official website.
There are eight train and underground stations close to the GTech Community Stadium and Brentford encourage supporters to utilise the public transport links rather than driving. The nearest station Kew Bridge – which Fulham fans should note isn’t step-free – receives trains from Waterloo every 15 minutes. Brentford station, the nearest step-free option, is around 20 minutes walk from the stadium whilst Chiswick station is a little further away.
Gunnersbury station offers both District Line and London Overground connectivity but Fulham fans should be aware that it will not open until an hour after the final whistle and even then queues are likely as access to the small platforms will be restricted on safety grounds. Supporters could also use the nearby Kew Gardens (District Line and London Overground), Chiswick Park (District Line), South Acton (London Overground), Acton Town (District and Piccadilly Lines) and South Ealing (Piccadilly Line) stations before completing their journey by utilising local bus services.
The 237, 267, 65, H91 and the 391 bus routes serve the GTech stadium directly, although supporters are urged to check the availability of these services before commencing their journey by using the TFL website or the TFL Go app.
The designated away pub is The Gunnersbury on the Chiswick High Road (590 Chiswick High Road, Chiswick, W4 5RP), where Fulham fans are assured of a warm welcome from landlord Scott. It serves a wide selection of ales, beers and wines as well as having an extensive food menu and live sport on television screens. The pub, which is family and dog family, can get quite busy on matchdays so supporters seeking a table are advised to book in advance on firstname.lastname@example.org
Other away-fan friendly venues include The Pilot (56 Wellesley Road, Chiswick, W4 4BZ) – also near to Gunnersbury station – and The Cricketers (79 Kew Green, Richmond, TW9 3AH), The Greyhound (82 Kew Green, Richmond, TW9 3AP), The Coach and Horses (8 Kew Green, Richmond, TW9 3BH) and The Botanist (3-5 Kew Green, Richmond, TW9 3AA), which are closer to Kew Green.
