Brentford: Club Profile
Our first spell in League One came to its (premature) end with a trip to take on the upwardly-mobile Bees in May 2014. Our record against them, however, isn’t too bad at all; winning four of our first 10 encounters. Now they’re at the right end of the Championship, and we’re fighting to punch back up from League Two. Something’s not right there, eh?
Players For Us... and Them
Away Supporters' Stand:
Brook Road Stand
Facilities for Disabled Fans:
Disabled supporters will be able to benefit from concessionary admission prices according to age, while carers are allowed in free. However, these are to be purchased in advance. Wheelchair users are also to contact the club in advance on 0845 3456 442 or by emailing email@example.com.
Facilities include wheelchair spaces for home and away fans at pitch level in the south west corner of the Braemar Road Stand, along with 14 seats with club commentary behind the wheelchair area for visually impaired supporters. Ambulant disabled fans should contact the club in advance.
With four pubs at each corner of the ground, you could well be spoilt for choice when you arrive at Brentford. The Royal Oak is on the corner as you arrive from the direction of the station, although this is reportedly a locals' pub.
The other three include The Griffin, The Princess Royal and The New Inn, with the Football Ground Guide suggesting the latter to be more favoured by away fans.
Travel Information – Distance: 48 miles
Located on the western fringe of central London, it might be advisable to take a direct route as possible to reach Brentford from Stevenage. And this can be done by heading southbound on the A1(M) and A1 to the outskirts of Edgware and Mill Hill.
At Northway Circus, take the first exit to remain on the A1 heading south through Mill Hill, and then take the second exit for the A41 Watford Way as you approach Hendon. After nearly two miles, take the ramp onto Hendon Way.
At the Brent Cross Interchange, take the third exit at the roundabout for the westbound A406 North Circular Road that will take you towards the M1, A40 and M4. Follow the A406 for more than 7.5 miles until you enter Chiswick.
Take the fifth exit onto the A4 Great West Road at a rather large roundabout, which is where the M4 starts. This will take you parallel to the motorway but don't join it. Continue to the Ealing Road roundabout and take the first exit for the B455. Turn right onto Braemar Road after 0.3 miles for Griffin Park.
Alternatively, you can go round the M25 and take the London-bound M4. Exit at Junction 2 and pick up the route above from the Chiswick Roundabout, which will involve doubling back on yourself to get to the B455 Ealing Road.
No parking is available at the ground, so if you've ventured by car and can't find space in the pay and display on Buts Road, it'll be street parking providing your best bet.
Services to: VAUXHALL/LONDON WATERLOO
You can either connect with trains to Brentford by taking the Victoria Line from Finsbury Park to Vauxhall, or by snaking your way to London Waterloo via the Northern Line. And once you arrive, the walk is a fairly short one.
The easiest way is to come out of the station and head along Station Road before turning right onto Orchard Road. It may seem like doubling back on yourself, but there's no more direct option from the station.
Turn right again onto the B452 Windmill Road and cross the railway, before taking the first left into Hamilton Road. As you walk along here, you'll come to the junction with Brook Road South - The Royal Oak is on the corner. Turn right.
You will now be behind one of the goals. And we're reliably informed that this is the end you'll be wanting.
