How To Get There: Charlton

Wednesday sees the first away trip for Manchester United, though not a particularly appealing one. Nobody likes mid-long distance away games, least not the travel so Vital Man Utd hopes to make this journey that little bit easier.

This week Ian Holloway was quoted about the fact that 750 Plymouth fans went all the way up to Sunderland saying 'Anyone who travelled up to Sunderland, please send me a letter. I'd love to buy you all a drink.'

Somehow I don't think Sir Alex will be doing the same!

Road

If your making your way down by road, we probably don't need to tell you that it may just be busy!

Best bet is to find your way down to the M25, likely journey from Manchester being M6 then onto the M1.

Come off the M25 at Junction 2, heading along the A2 which becomes the A102M. At the junction after the A2 exit, leave the 102, and take the right hand exit on the roundabout, signposted A206 (Woolwich Road). Then after the major set of traffic lights travel around second roundabout and take the last exit to drive back on yourself.

Take the first left into Charlton Lane. Continue up the road, then right into Harvey Gardens. The stadium is on the left. Note: Parking is Limited around the Ground

Public Transport

Frequent train services leave London's Charing Cross station and call at the station aptly named 'Charlton' which is a short (and I dare say on match days obvious) walk to the ground. For United fans this is the easiest method of getting there, and especially back!

With Kick off being 2000(8PM), we'll give a sample journey to arrive at Charlton Railway station by 1900 (7PM), leaving from Manchester.

Take the 1545 Virgin Trains service from Manchester Piccadilly which will arrive in London Euston at 1806.

You will then need to take the Northern Line tube and change onto the mainline service from London Bridge, to Charlton. This will arrive bang on 7pm.

If you can't find Charlton, stay home and keep drinking. You'll need it.
