The home of West Ham United is most commonly referred to as Upton Park, despite its official name being The Boleyn Ground. The East London stadium has been the home of The Hammers since 1904, although the club is set to move to the Olympic Stadium from 2016 onwards.
For the time being, however, the historic venue will continue to welcome both home and away supporters. This guide outlines the best and cheapest ways to get to and from the ground, be it from within London or further afield.
How to get to Upton Park
Upton Park is well served by local bus services, most of which operate on Barking Road (A124), which runs past the south side of the ground. The following services offer easy access to the stadium: 5, 15, 58, 115, 147, 104, 330 and 376. Full details can be found here
Train and Tube
The Upton Park Underground station is located just to the north of the stadium and operates on the District (Green) Line in Zone Three. You should set aside at least 45 minutes for the journey from central London, plus five minutes to get from the station to the ground (head right along Green Street).
The post code for Upton Park (Boleyn Ground) is E13 9AZ, but visitors should note that parking around the ground is extremely limited on match days. One option is to use the pay-and-display parking services available at Newham University Hospital, situated roughly one mile south of the ground.
