Travel advice for Maidstone game

It has been brought to our attention that there are no trains calling at Maidstone East on 4th January, the day we travel to Maidstone United, due to engineering works.

There is an alternative which avoids rail replacement buses, which is to travel to Maidstone Barracks which is on the Medway Valley line. Our best advice with the engineering works is to travel from London Bridge to Tonbridge, and then change onto the Medway Valley line to Maidstone Barracks.

The journey from London Bridge takes just over an hour and ten minutes, and the last train that will get you to the game in time leaves London Bridge at 13:23, then getting the 14:04 from Tonbridge, arriving at Maidstone Barracks at 14:35. Trains only run hourly between Tonbridge and Maidstone Barracks.

Return journeys depart at 25 minutes past the hour.

To get from the station to the ground, come out of the station, cross the road and turn right. Follow the alleyway next to the other railway line. You can then either walk all the way into town past Naidstone East, turn left at the end and follow the road along to the roundabout from where the ground is visible, or immediately after crossing the river, go down the steps and along the riverbank away from town then go up the steps next to the boat club next to the ground. The second is a shorter route but doesn't pass any pubs.

If you are driving to the game, please be advised that parking at the stadium is reserved for pass holders only. Pay and display car parks are located at Invicta House, Maidstone East Station and Fremlin Walk, all a short walk from the ground.
