AFC Bournemouth: Club Profile
After two seasons with the Cherries in League One, our respective fortunes went in very different directions; AFC Bournemouth going up to the Premier League. Us? Not quite the same…

Travel Information – Distance: 126 miles
For your trip to the Dorset seaside, head south on the A1(M) and anti-clockwise on the M25. At Junction 12, leave the motorway and join the Southampton-bound M3 - this will be the largest component of the journey at 51 miles.
At the bottom of the M3 and on the outskirts of Southampton, bear left for the westbound M27 towards Southampton Docks and Bournemouth. Continue along once the motorway ends and the New Forest begins, remaining with the A31. After more than 11 miles, exit the carriageway for the A338 for Bournemouth and Verwood.
Remain left for the Bournemouth-bound A338 (signposted as such) and continue along for nearly eight miles. Exit from the A338 and take the second exit at the roundabout for King's Park Drive. The ground will be on the left.
The ground features a large car park that may suffice, although it charges per hour. A local authority-run car park is also located on the opposite side of the dual carriageway if that fits the bill any better.
Services to: LONDON WATERLOO
Pokesdown is the nearest station to Dean Court and is served fairly regularly by services from London Waterloo. It will be roughly 20 minutes on foot to reach the stadium from Pokesdown and is a pretty straight-forward route.
There are a couple of options, but the best way is to head along the A35 Christchurch Road, which is residential and may also provide a pre-game pint. After about a third of a mile, turn right onto Gloucester Road for another 0.3 miles.
At the end of Gloucester Road, turn left onto King's Park Drive and follow the road around to the right past the Indoor Bowls Centre. The ground will be on the right if it hasn't already made its presence known to you.
