Google street map will be your best friend for any form of parking for any occation, make good use of it, I do, You can zoom in on the parking restriction signs in each road you go down so you don't get caught out, Believe it or not the area around Kew Gdns (not the Kew Green Area) contains many roads with only a 1 hour day time parking restriction Mon-Fri, it will also work out the walking time to get to BCS if you want, I walk from Kew Gdns station in about 20 mins at a moderate pace and I'm nearly 80, best to pre view it on a PC or tablet at home as you get a better all round view, then just use your smartphone if you have one, in the car, I am sure you will find somewhere to suit.

The only problem with this is that Google Streetview can be a bit old. For example, the nearest part of Wellesley Road to BCS opposite the Leisure Centre (zone SH) shows signs with "Resident Permit Holders Only, Mon-Fri, 10am to Noon" on Streetview as the photo is from July 2019. Lots of newer CPZ restriction since then unfortunately. This map from Hounslow BC should show the latest info:
Hounslow BC CPZ Map

Ealing have a similar map here.

Yes but he hadn't been to a game for a year and a half so didn't realise although I accept there's pretty clear signage. But you dont see what you don't expect. I got done for driving down to Boston Manor from Northfields when they first came in for driving down a road I must have been down 500 times over the years.
There are big signs at each entrance.

I think it's that only residents are permitted to drive through from South Ealing Road to Windmill Road except on main bus routes. Rebus might be able to confirm but you need to be very wary down that way particularly as parking itself is permitted - you just cant drive on the roads unless a resident!
No, even residents can not cross the Junction Road, you can turn off the Ealing Road drive down to Junction turn on to Junction Road and then turn back up to Ealing Road, say Ealing-Carlyle-Junction-Murray-Ealing, or on the other side of JR it would be Windmill-Carlyle-Junction-Darwin-Windmill, there is no way of going from Ealing to Windmill or vice versa, unless you are a Blue Badged resident registered with Ealing Council.

You can't beat a bit of local knowledge. ;)

So, my plan was to park where I have for a long time, Darwin Road, Carlyle Road, Whitestile Road Enfield Road or surrounding area. Many of those roads seem to only have RPZ restrictions one hour mid morning and one hour mid afternoon to deter all day commuter parking.

Do I now run the risk of a slap for driving in the wrong direction to get there or at the wrong time?

How the hell are you supposed to navigate all this? FFS I'm busy trying not to hit anything or anyone by actually y'know looking at the road in front of me and stuff. Not having a running commentary from my lawyer analyse all the f'kin road signs.

Go to the Hounslow Council website and it’s explained.

Murray, Carlyle and Darwin are in Ealing, the restrictions here are only Monday to Friday day time to stop commuters, no problems evenings and weekends, just do not cross Junction Road at anytime, if you are Ealing Road side stay there, if Windmill Road side stay there.

Parked on Kew Green last night and there were plenty of spaces. OK they were residents parking and event day restrictions applied. But as I'm a LB Richmond resident I was able to use one of my visitor scratch card permits which work out at about 60p a go.

I currently park in Old Citroen site on a Blue Badge for £10

As I hear this will no longer be an option soon, any other Blue Badgers know what options and rules are for alternative local parking?

So lots of options really. Especially as you can park in resident permit bays.

No, Borough boundary is around Ealing Park Tavern travelling east/west.
As far as Ealing Road is concerned Ealing is up to Occupation Lane, where Hounslow begins, all roads West of that is Ealing also up to Windmill where Hounslow begins, so park in Carlyle you are in Ealing, park outside the Ealing Park Tavern or opposite side of ER you are in Hounslow.

I’m in the same boat I’ve been taking Bill retired Brentford ‘turnstile guru’, who finds it painful walking any distance. Citroen site is the nearest I’ve been able to get him to the ground. He has a blue badge issued by I assume Maidenhead council, any help on parking options would be greatly appreciated. Train is not a viable option particularly for night games.

Why not use the roads on the other side of where the flower pot things are? ie Carlyle Road. Not the end leading up to the old Ealing Park Tavern, but the other end, leading to Windmill Road? Not that much further to walk.
Yes, that’s what I do. I live about 20 miles away and it would involve 3 changes by train, so I park up in the Carlisle Road area at the moment, and walk the rest. Sometimes I have a pint in the Lord Nelson. I’m half expecting parking restrictions to be introduced here too, on match days. Councils hate car users. They think everyone can walk or ride a bike.

Have been parking Kew side of the river since the move to LR, but am considering a pre match pint in The Griffin before the Chelsea game next week. Any chance of latest detail on current parking restrictions around there/GP?
(Also, if "Event Day" restrictions apply, does the timing get shifted to reflect later kick offs? I.e Would it be OK to park after 15:30 or not?)
Thanks.

As I understand it, you can park up after 3.30pm. Fill your boots.

FYI most of the parking barricades and blockages in Ealing have been removed, so you can now get from Ealing Road to Windmill Road and back again.
Hooray! Bloody Council made a fortune!
