We provide travelling Saints fans with a guide to Selhurst Park ahead of the weekend’s Premier League clash.

Club Details

Address: Selhurst Park, Whitehorse Lane, London, SE25 6PU
Telephone: 020 8768 6000
Capacity: 25,456
Nickname: The Eagles
Home kit colours: Red and blue

Away Supporters

A following of just under 2800 Saints fans will descend on Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, a sold-out away allocation.

They will be housed in blocks R, S and T of the Arthur Wait Stand. Mark Hughes’s men will be in their yellow and below away kit for the fixture.

Supporters are reminded that the Prince George in Thornton Heath will be the designated away fans’ pub. Bars will also be selling alcohol inside the ground.

Getting There By Car

Leave the M25 at Junction 7 and follow signs for the A23 to Croydon. At Purley, bear left on to the A23 at its junction with the A 235 (to Croydon). You will pass roundabouts and junctions with the A232 and A236 as you pass Croydon, after which the A23 bears left at Thornton Heath (at the Horseshoe pub roundabout).

Here you must go straight over, into Brigstock Road (B266), passing Thornton Heath Station on your left and bearing right on to the High Street. At the next mini roundabout (Whitehorse Road/Grange Road), go left into Whitehorse Lane. Selhurst Park is on your right.

Car Parking

There is no available parking at the stadium. Some local streets are subject to time restrictions and permit-only requirements. Supporters are advised to leave plenty of time when looking for local parking.

For disabled supporters, there are a small number of bays available in Sainsbury’s car park which is located next to the stadium. These bays are not monitored by Crystal Palace FC.

Getting There By Train

The nearest railway stations are Selhurst, Thornton Heath or Norwood Junction, all of which are served by London Victoria and Clapham Junction main line stations. Both Thornton Heath and Norwood Junction are also served by trains from London Bridge.

From each of these local stations it is then a 10-15 minute walk to Selhurst Park. Please note that Crystal Palace station is nowhere near the ground.

Supporters are advised to consult South Western Railway before travelling; due to industrial action, a reduced timetable will be in operation between Southampton Central and central London throughout the weekend. 

Coach Travel

Coach Travel provided by Princess Coaches can be purchased for this game, priced at £20 per person. Coaches will depart St. Mary’s Stadium at 10:30, Eastleigh at 10:45, Winchester at 11:00 and Fleet at 11:30.
