Essex CM15 9NN

There is a coach leaving the Belmont at 10.45 a.m. (Please note this is 15 minutes earlier than the previously advertised time.) The cost is £10 return. If any other supporters would like to travel with us, please call Joe on 07802 717840 or email whitstabletown@gmail.com.

Other travel details are given below:

By Road
The centre of Brentwood is approximately 1½ miles from junction 28 of the M25. From the eastern end (Wilsons Corner) of the High Street, turn north into Ongar Road. At the third mini roundabout take the right-hand fork into Doddinghurst Road. The Brentwood Centre is a further half a mile, on the right just after the A12 bridge. Once you enter the Centre the football ground entrance is in the far-right hand corner of the car park. There is a height restriction when entering the Brentwood Centre so if you are arriving by coach or high-sided vehicle, you will need to approach the barrier and use the intercom to the Brentwood Centre reception to gain entrance. There are normally vast amounts of parking available but beware when special events are taking place at the Brentwood Centre, as the car park can then become very congested.
[There is a Toy Collectors’ Fair at the venue from 10 a.m. until 2.30 p.m. on 27 October]

By Train
Brentwood station is on the Great Eastern Line, approximately 35 minutes from Liverpool Street, and is about 1¾ miles from the Brentwood Centre.

By Bus
The No. 37 bus runs approximately every 20 minutes from Brentwood station, via the High Street and Doddinghurst Road, to the Brentwood Centre.
