Brief Directions By Road: I once found a nice and straightforward way to get to the ground courtesy of the now sadly relocated Al’s Tours. Get onto the A12 from either the A406 North Circular Road or the M11 signposted towards Chelmsford. Continue on the A12 until you reach the Moby Dick junction and turn right onto the A1112 signposted Dagenham. Stay on this road even when it insects with the A124 keep looking for the A112 (Rainham Road) signs. You will eventually see the floodlights on the right hand side. Turn into Victoria Road and the ground is at the end of the road.
Postcode for Sat Nav: RM10 7XL
Car Parking: There is a large car park for around 140 cars at the ground but this gets full about an hour before kick off and now possibly by invitation only. Ample free parking is available in the surrounding streets.
By Train: Take the District (green) Underground line to Dagenham East. Come out of station and turn Left, Victoria Road is about 400 yards and on your left, the ground is a further 100 yards down Victoria Road.
Supporters Coaches: Barnet Football Club are running of Official Coach Travel for this season. The coach will leave the Pavilion at 1.00pm and the ticket price is just £15. The Pavilion will be open from 11.30pm for pre-journey refreshments. Discounts on travel are available for season ticket holders and club members Bookings for coach travel for all 2012-13 season away games can be purchased online or by calling 020 8449 6325.
Where To Get A Decent Drink Locally: The Railway is adjacent to Dagenham East Underground and the Eastbrook is a short walk (and on the right) down the Rainham Road. These are both recommended by the club. My choice would be The Bull on Rainham Road (if turning right out of the Underground station away from the ground it is about a 15-minute walk). It offers decent meals too.
The Social Club: We will be made welcome in the Dagenham & Redbridge Social Club. The downstairs bar is where most of the away supporters tend to head and there is a charge of £1 at the door.
Admission Prices: Traditional Builders Stand: Adults £22, Concessions £15. Discounts available if bought in advance.
