From M25 take Junction 29 and follow the A127 to Southend. Continue towards the town centre, through the lights near to the Bell Pub. At the next roundabout turn right (3rd turning), continuing on the A127. The ground is on the right just past the next traffic lights.
When you arrive (Stadium Map):
There is very limited street parking around Roots Hall on matchdays and we would advise caution with regards to parking restrictions enforced by the authorities.
We do have parking availability within the main ground however this is reserved for Car Park Season Ticket holders and corporate guests and officials of the Club; therefore there is no admittance at present for matchday parking.
There is parking availability however at the Civic Centre on Victoria Avenue Southend-on-Sea Essex SS2 6ER at the following times:
Mon to Sat – 9 am to 6 pm
Sun – 11 am to 5 pm
There is also matchday parking at the Southend High School on Prittlewell Close SS0 0RG and the price is £5 per car.
Both of these car parking areas are only five minutes walk from the ground.
Trains to Southend Central via the C2C Line (served by trains from London Fenchurch Street), are roughly a 25 minute walk from the ground. The main bus station is close to Southend Central, and therefore it may be ideal to get a bus up to the ground, rather than walking.
The closest station to the ground is Prittlewell via the Abellio Greater Anglia line, and is about a five minute walk away. It is served by trains from London Liverpool Street. As you exit the station turn right, you will then come to a crossroads with traffic lights. On your right is the 'Fish House', fish and chip shop. Pass this and turn right. Walk about 100 yards and the ground is tucked away on your left.
The Arrivia bus numbers 7, 8, 9, and 29 buses all stop right outside Roots Hall Football Ground whilst the First Bus numbers 20, 21 and 25 also arrive at the stadium.
