Go through Fen Ditton until you reach a T-junction, where at the traffic lights you turn right into Newmarket Road. Go straight across the roundabout (there is a McDonalds on one corner) and you will come to the stadium on your left-hand side.If you are planning on driving via the M25 Dartford Crossing remember you have to pay in advance, or by midnight on the day after you cross. This applies to both the tunnel and the bridge. There are no longer toll booths but number plate recognition cameras make sure nobody escapes the fee. Visit gov.uk/pay-dartford-crossing-charge or phone 0300 300 0120.There is no parking available for away fans at the ground. There is some parking to be had on the streets surrounding the stadium.
