Car Parking:
Mostly street parking, and usually not too great a problem. Try streets to the south of the A206 (e.g. Troughton Road) or in the industrial estate to the north of the A206.

There's a good selection of pubs along the A206 Woolwich Road and most of them welcome well behaved visiting fans.

The kebab shop at the corner of Floyd Road and Charlton Church lane was absolutely heaving when we visited so we never got to try the food there. There is also a chippy and a café in Charlton Church Lane.
A few minutes walk away in Charlton Village you can find a Pizza Hut, chippy, café and Chinese and Indian Restaurants.
You won't go hungry…
