From the fallout of the ‘other’ Dons’ move to MK, the recent rise of AFC Wimbledon offers a tale of romance for many football fans. MK Dons‘ relegation to League Two in 2018 was a huge waypoint in that journey; the point at which the balance shifted. And now the ‘new’ Dons are back in their spirtual home at Plough Lane with their new 9,300 capacity ground in the London Borough of Merton. It’s been a long journey home.
AFC Wimbledon Travel Information – Distance: 37 miles
The shortest route to Plough Lane would take you close to the centre of London. So, you might find it easier to add a couple of extra miles onto your car journey and take as wide a path as you can get away with. That’s what we’ll talk you through now too.
Head down the A1(M) and onto the A1 into the northern districts of the capital. At Hendon, you want to keep right on the Barnet bypass so that you’re heading towards the A41. Once you find yourself heading south on the A41, don’t go further than Brent Cross. This is where you’ll hook up with the A406 North Circular – and you want to be heading counter-clockwise.
Upon reaching the Hanger Lane Gyratory, go across the railway bridge; taking a slight left to join Western Avenue. It eventually leads you onto the A40 Westway. When you reach its junction with the A3220 at White City, exit and take the second exit. Follow the A3220 into the deepest reaches Kensington and Chelsea, before turning right onto King’s Road (A308/A3217).
Turn left onto Wandsworth Bridge Road (A217), before taking the second exit at the roundabout after crossing the Thames. As you head through Wandsworth Common, take a right for Windmill Road (B234). More than half-a-mile later, it’s a left at Earlsfield onto the A217. Soon after, go right at the Arrow electrical store and follow this around to the left.
Getting parked close to the ground could be a pickle. But, the more fans use this new ground, the more we can tell you about your options.
Services to: VAUXHALL and LONDON WATERLOO
This isn’t the easiest journey by rail. In fact, we think the easiest option is to go to Vauxhall from Finsbury Park on the Victoria Line. Then, take a South Western Railway service to Earlsfield.
From here, the walk is around 15 minutes; following the latter stages of the road route. Go south from Earlsfield station, passing the various amenities available here. The ground will be on your right behind some commercial units. And you may have options as to which way in you go.
