Hendon FC – Silver Jubilee Park

About Silver Jubilee Park
After years of living out of a suitcase, Hendon Football Club finally came home in the summer of 2016 to Silver Jubilee Park.  The ground is also shared with Kingsbury Town but Hendon have become the primary tenants, after spending previous years at Northwood FC, Wembley FC and in previous seasons, Harrow Borough.  The club have spent the last 18 months bringing the ground up to Ryman League Premier Division standard, building three small covered stands to go along with the existing brick main stand as well as installing a 3G pitch which will act as the revenue generator for the club going forward.

There is a decent sized clubhouse within the ground that has a large screen that shows Sky Sports.  Food was served from a BBQ area around the side of the Main Stand.  On the opposite side of the pitch are two covered areas, either side of the half-way line whilst behind the South goal is a small covered seating area.  Hard standing is around the whole of the pitch, with a raised area in the corner that you entry the ground by that offers some good views.

How to get to Silver Jubilee Park
28899953820_386260fce1_kIf you are coming around the A406 North Circular or A1 from Central London/M25 junction, then head to Staples Corner and then travel north along the A5, towards Edgware, through West Hendon, to the junction with Kingsbury Road (Red Lion public house on corner). Turn into Kingsbury Road and Townsend Lane is the 3rd turning on the left, at the top of the hill. The ground is in the bottom left hand corner of the Silver Jubilee Park.  Parking is free in the park.

Nearest National Rail station is Hendon (Thameslink). Buses 83 and 183 pass Hendon station and close to the ground. Best stop to alight 83 is Slough Lane (avoids walk up & down steep hill), and 183 is Townsend Lane.  Nearest tube station is Kingsbury (Jubilee Line). Approximately a 25 minute walk along main road (turn right out of station) and right down Townsend Lane. Or bus 183 to the top of Townsend Lane although Wembley Park is another option where you can then get a 83 bus, alternatively a 302 stops at Slough Lane, and 83 and 183 at Townsend Lane, for a 5-10 minute walk to the ground.
