Travel Information – Distance: 64 miles
The quickest way to get to Canvey Island from Stevenage is to take the M25 eastbound until you reach Junction 29, which is the A127 turnoff. Go along the A127 towards Southend and, after 12 miles, you'll reach the junction for the A1245 for Chelmsford, Wickford and the A130 among others.
Come off the A127 here and take the third exit at the roundabout for the A1245. In a very short distance, keep left to join the A130. In about one-and-a-half miles, stay in the left two lanes to stay with the A130 down towards Canvey Island.
Make sure you're in the right lane for the A130 as you approach the roundabout. You are going (more or less) straight across here. As you near the island, you'll come to a roundabout. Here, you want the second exit for Somnes Avenue (B1014). Keep going for around 2.8 miles after this.
At the roundabout with Park Lane just after passing the transport museum, it's a right turn (second exit) and the ground is down here.
There are several suggestions for parking here:
• the ground itself
• Eastern Esplanade
• Holbeck Road
The car park at the ground itself is said to be pretty big and can cope with a modest sized crowd, while also being free. If it is busier than anticipated with a larger crowd in attendance, it is suggested that immediate side streets are not used, and that you head for the seafront (Eastern Esplanade) or the other side of Point Road.
