Travel Information – Distance: 69 miles
You can take a direct route through London to get to Carshalton, and it may well be the shortest way to go. For speed, however, we think the M25 may be the best bet... despite it's obvious habit of getting snarled up.
Head round the counter-clockwise M25 to Junction 10; coming off the motorway and using the two left lanes for the London-bound A3. Once on the A3, it's a shade over 11 miles until the junction you want; the A298 taking you towards Wimbledon.
Keep right on the slip road for the A298 and continue on for just under three quarters of a mile. Here, turn right into Grand Drive and go over the first roundabout you come to. At the second by Morden Baptist Church, however, you want the second exit for Lower Morden Lane.
When you come to the A24, turn left. It's only for 0.4 miles, however; as soon as you come along side a Travelodge and Harvester, take the right turn for the B278 and follow the road round here onto Green Lane. You'll soon come to a large roundabout.
Here, take the third exit for the B278. You'll be on this for around 1.5 miles, at which point it swings around to the right and becomes West Street. Shortly after, go right at the roundabout onto Colston Avenue. The ground is set back off the road on your right.
There appears to be a small car park at the ground, which might not entirely fill up but it's quite conceivable that it may. If this is the case, you might be able to find somewhere on the access road or nearby side streets.

Turn right as you exit the station on the southbound side of the tracks, and walk up to the end of the road. Another right will take you onto the B278 to cross the railway, before a left turn at the mini-roundabout will take you into Colston Avenue. Walk along this road until you reach the right turn for the access road.
