The Rebels will be searching for a fourth successive win as they take on the Darts at Princes Park following a remarkable 3-1 win against league leaders Yeovil Town on Saturday.

The Ground

Princes Park has been the home of the Darts since 2006 and has a capacity of 4,100. The record attendance was set at the opening game at the stadium when 4,097 watched Dartford take on Horsham YMCA.

When the new stadium was designed & built, Dartford FC and the local Council ensured it included some key attributes to the stadium to make it as accessible as possible. A unique feature is the ‘Oak Man’ – a wooden sculpture inside the stadium with his arms above his head. From a distance it looks like he is holding up the roof!

On one side is the Main Stand. This stand is all seated and comprises just four rows, seating in total 645 spectators. It has the team dugouts at its front and a glassed area at the rear, which contains amongst other things the clubhouse bar. Like the rest of the stadium, the roof is situated quite high above the spectator area and has a slight oval angle to it.

The other three sides of the stadium are small terraced areas, being around seven rows high. Opposite the Main Stand, the Wooden Man sculpture stands on the terrace, keeping a watchful eye over proceedings. All four corners of the stadium are enclosed, although these areas are not used for spectators. The stadium is completed with a set of four floodlight pylons.

Travel & Parking

Address: Princes Park Stadium, Grassbanks, Dartford DA1 1RT

By Road: Leave the M25 at Junction 2 (signposted A2/Dartford A225). At the roundabout below the roundabout take the Dartford A225 exit. At the next roundabout take the 1st exit by the Esso garage onto the A225 towards Dartford. Go straight across the next roundabout, passing a BP garage on the right. At the next set of traffic lights turn left into Darenth Road and then take the second left into Grassbanks for the stadium.
There is a car park at the stadium which has 300 spaces and is free. If this is full then drivers are directed towards the Orchards Shopping Centre Car Park, which charges £2 for 3-4 hours.

By Rail: Dartford Railway Station is located just over a mile away from Princes Park. It is served by trains from Charing Cross and London Bridge. If on leaving the station you follow the pedestrian signs for the Orchard Shopping Centre then before the bridge going across the main road, descend the steps down to the road side. Just to left you will find a row of bus stops including the Fastrack B bus stop. This service runs every ten minutes during the day (every 20 minutes in the evenings) to the Bluewater Shopping Centre and stops at Princes Park. The cost (one way) is Adults £1, Children 50p. Otherwise a taxi from the station to the stadium will cost around £5. Otherwise, the ground is a 15-20 minute walk away.


Ground Facilities & Away Pubs

There is a small bar at the ground called the Defluo Bar which is specifically for the use of away fans. The entrance to it is in the car park at the away end of the stadium. There are also two good-sized bars at the stadium, however, these are more for home supporters.

The nearest pub to the ground is the Ivy Leaf on Darenth Road, which is about a five-minute walk away (from the stadium entrance turn right along Darenth Road, cross over the main road at the traffic lights and the pub is further up Darenth Road on the right). Further along the same road is the Malt Shovel, which also does food. Both these pubs are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

Otherwise, Dartford Town Centre is around a 15-minute walk away, where there are plenty of pubs to be found. Ones of note are the CAMRA Good Beer Guide listed Wat Tyler on the High Street, the Paper Moon Wetherspoons outlet opposite and another Wetherspoons outlet called the Flying Boat on Spital Street.
