More About Hotels near Kingfield Stadium...

Easy Access to the Stadium 

Woking is a small town relative to London, however, visitors intending to come and support the home team still find a handful of accommodation options ranging from affordable well-known chains to charming inns.

The closest hotel to the stadium is Premier Inn Woking. Located within a 20-minute walk from Kingfield Stadium, the hotel offers 24-hour reception, free parking, and free breakfast for children with paying adults. Guests who prefer to stay closer to the train station but remain within a short distance of the stadium can opt for the Holiday Inn Woking. It also has the added bonus of being near the town center, making it easy for visitors to reach many of the town’s other attractions.

Fans of Woking FC who want to have a London base can consider the range of hotels near Waterloo and Clapham Junction stations. Some of the cheaper options include the Alma Hotel in Clapham, the Premier Inns in Waterloo, and London County Hall.

Pitch with a History

Kingfield Stadium was built in 1922 for Woking Football Club. It has an uncovered grass pitch and accommodates around 6,000 fans. It also has a covered seating area with 2,500 seats reserved for the home team supporters. The stadium also hosts other notable matches including qualifying matches for the England Women’s U17 tournament and the 2014 semi-finals of the FA Women’s Cup. 

Woking Football Club belongs in the Conference Premier League, the 5th highest level in English football hierarchy. It was established in 1889 and has gone through a series of ups and downs throughout its history. Most of the team’s success occurred in the 1950s and 1960s, and then again in the early 1990s after its promotion to the Conference. Information on how to get season tickets and single tickets for home matches are readily available through the team’s website.

More than Just a Small Town

Deciding to stay in the Woking area certainly has its advantages. Accommodations that offer the same services and amenities have prices that are way cheaper than those in London. Also, with the town’s accessibility to London, visitors who come to watch matches will still find it easy to explore all that the big city has to offer. There are frequent train connections that take you from Woking train station to London’s Waterloo and Clapham Junction stations in just half an hour.

Woking also has other attractions outside of its beloved Cardinals. There is a historic royal palace once inhabited by King Henry VIII’s grandmother and the Basingstoke Canal. The canal provides visitors with a starting point for other outdoor activities such as cycling, boating, and fishing. The town also has a supernatural association because aliens invaded the town in the book War of the Worlds. In the middle of the town square is a monument depicting this connection. 

Fans traveling via public transport will find it harder to get around without a car and might find it more convenient to choose accommodations closer to the areas surrounding Waterloo or Clapham Junction stations. Doing so will still give you convenient access to watch matches in Woking with the advantages of being in a large city.
