The Valley

If you are heading to The Valley to cheer on the Swans in midweek, here is a handy travel guide to help with planning your journey.

Charlton Athletic v Swansea City

Date: Wednesday, October 2 (7.45pm)

Address: The Valley, Floyd Road, Charlton, SE7 8BL                                        

Distance from Liberty Stadium: 230.9 miles


Up to 3,000 Swans fans can be housed in the South Stand behind the goal.  Pies, hot dogs are sold, as well as John Smiths, Fosters, Bulmers & white wine.


There is street parking, but due to residents’ parking, none near the ground or train station. As you come off the A2 onto the A206, there’s some parking on the right in a few streets before the Rose of Denmark pub.

The industrial estates in the area, in Westmoor Street, Eastmoor Street, Warspite Road and Ruston Road have street parking.

If you’re coming up Woolwich Road from the Blackwall Tunnel as you pass the ground, the industrial estates are on the left-hand side of the road (SE7 8BL).


The ground is 0.4 miles from Charlton Railway Station, served by trains from Charing Cross, London Bridge and Waterloo East stations.

It may be easier to use the tube (Jubilee Line) to get to North Greenwich station and take a short ride on buses 161, 472 or 486 to the ground. Trains to Charlton take approximately four hours, and leave Swansea at 10.29am, 11.29am, 12.29pm and 1.29pm.

There are no trains back to Swansea after the game.
