Gillingham Football Club

MEMS Priestfield Stadium

Redfern Avenue





The Gills play at the same stadium as when they were founded, but it has seen significant redevelopment in the early 2000s, where the capacity reduced from 20,000 to 11,500.

The Medway Stand is a two-tiered structure which houses the changing rooms, club offices and club shop.

Opposite is the temporary Brian Moore Stand, which is where the travelling City supporters will be housed tonight.


There is no parking available around Priestfield Stadium itself, so you may have to drive slightly further away from the ground.

Croneens Yard Car Park is just a five-minute walk from the stadium and costs £2.50, which is the cheapest option.

Gillingham recommends parking at Woodlands Primary School, which is also a five-minute walk, and costs £3, but only houses 100 cars.

If free street parking is your preferred choice, then there is availability in Larkfield Avenue, however, please note that cars are left at your own risk.


To drink:

The nearest away-friendly pub is the Livingstone Arms, on Gillingham Road. About 100 yards from the visitors’ turnstiles, the pub offers a warm friendly atmosphere, with complimentary bar snacks.

The town centre is a comfortable walk from the ground and has several recommended pubs.

The Southern Belle, on the High Street, has also received positive reports and is opposite Gillingham’s railway station. 

To eat: 

Traditional matchday food items such as pies and burgers can be purchased inside the away concourse.

Gillingham’s town centre, which has various popular fast-food outlets such as KFC, is only ten minutes from the stadium.

On the High Street, there is also a Beefeater restaurant, which serves typical British pub food.


By car:

Exit the A2 at junction 1, joining the A289. After three miles, take the second exit at the roundabout, following signs for the Medway Tunnel.

Take the first exit at the next two roundabouts, and follow the A289 and take the third exit at the final roundabout. 

Drive up the hill, over a level crossing and take the second left into Linden Drive, where the ground is on the right.

By train: 

Gillingham (Kent) railway station is a 10-minute walk from the ground. 

On exiting the station, turn left and proceed as far as the crossroads. Go straight on into Priestfield Road, where the away turnstiles are at. 


The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited. Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time. Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

The club recently outlined its stance on pyrotechnics following an incident during this season's trip to Mansfield Town, in a statement. This can be read HERE

Supporters are also reminded to remain courteous when inside the stadium, with regards to foul and abusive language. If you do hear anything offensive while inside the stadium, please report it to your nearest steward. 


Travelling Bantams should prepare for light rain showers and a gentle breeze in Kent, as forecasts suggest highs of 5°.
