Parking for Wigan match

Just a heads up for those that park around the streets near meridian etc that RBG have their annual festival tomorrow at Charlton Park.
used to be at the barracks and know that traffic and parking has been chaos in previous years.

  • Cheers... Its also worth the reminder that the A2 is going to be closed for anyone coming up beyond Bluewater

    Going to be a day where I'll be leaving an hour earlier than usual me thinks
  • oh good shout thanks
  • At 165k cost for festival, RBG are spending more than TS this summer. But seriously, living beside park, expecting streets to be packed. Doubt there will be many parking spaces around Hornfair/Charlton Park tomorrow afternoon.  
  • Thanks for the heads up.
  • Maybe useful as well - the normal entrances to the park will be closed off as well. The Canberra Road gates will be closed and whole parks is closed in morning until 12. 
  • New tactics. We park Wigan team bus across our goal to ensure a point.

    Those travelling on the Larkfield VE coach are reminded "You've got 30 minutes to get here or we're leaving without you" ;)

    TBF, they can’t be expecting many people to turn up for that if it’s being held in Charlton Park which is probably also not the most accessible venue by public transport and which would have limited parking availability even if Charlton wasn’t playing at home. Given the forecast is for rain all afternoon from 11am this outdoor event is hardly likely to be that much of a concern for charlton fans worried about competition for parking spaces. #nodoubtillbeprovenwrong
  • The weather will certainly put the kibosh on that.

    A lot of the performances are inside tents. The areas being used are the football pitches, the former athletics track and the cricket field.

    Don't be tempted to park in the streets near the station. Greenwich Council has taken back the control of parking and wardens will be around.

    The Royal Greenwich Together free festival takes place between 12pm and 8pm with an estimated 8,000 guests set to attend throughout the day.

  • Riverside at the end of Anchor and Hope lane usually has plenty of room.

    Charlton Park, has 4 bus routes that go  right by the park and Charlton Station is a 10 minute walk,  I think that is quite accessible.
  • Maybe we should all give the match a miss and go to the festival instead  :D
  • Riverside at the end of Anchor and Hope lane usually has plenty of room.
    Will there still be parking there around 2 o’clock?

    Fck me, you’ll be telling us they have electric lights in some houses up there next. 4 bus routes and a trek up a steep hill isn’t describing a place that’s well served by public transport. That description sounds more like Oxford’s ground last week.
  • I would rather not fck you.

    And miss the circus?

    No idea, but if not should be alright by the gravel works at the end of riverside.
