From the M25 (J23), Take the A1 towards London, then take the second turning on the left, (at the bridge). Go over the bridge, then follow the sign the for Town Centre. Carry on straight at the two mini roundabouts, you should then see the Police, Fire, and Ambulance stations on the left. At the next roundabout take the second exit (Brook Road).
About one hundred yards on the right is a school, with a public car park immediately after. From here You can use the Brook Road car park (pay and Display), and enter the ground at the Willow Tree end, or if you wish to use the club bar, take the next turning on the right after the car park and follow the road around. The entrance is on the right.
From London Fiveways corner (where the A1 & A41 merge) Follow the road until you come to Mill Hill roundabout go straight across and up the hill, at next roundabout turn right, third exit signposted A1 the north, carry on straight at next roundabout, and when you see a bridge turn off at the slip road, (signposted Borehamwood) and head for the Town Centre, and continue as directed above
Several buses run close to Boreham Wood's Meadow Park ground. From Enfield, get a 307 towards Barnet, Arkley Hotel. Get off anywhere between New Barnet Station (the start of the 107 route) and the Arkley Hotel. Change to a 107.
The 107, from the other direction, comes from Edgware.
The 292 route is the other LT bus which passes close to the ground. It runs from Colindale or Edgware to Borehamwood.
If you get the 107 from Barnet or 292 from Colindale or Edgware, get off by Elstree Studios. This is the stop before Tesco. If you are coming from the opposite direction get off at McDonalds.
Elstree & Borehamwood station is on Thameslink. Not all Thameslink trains stop there, but the station is better served than some (e.g. Kentish Town, Hendon, Cricklewood). In London, Thameslink connects with other services as follows:-
Elephant & Castle: (Bakerloo and Northern (Bank Branch) Lines, close to Elephant & Castle BR station)
London Bridge: (Northern (Bank Branch) and Jubilee Lines plus other BR services)
Blackfriars: (Circle and District lines plus other BR services)
Farringdon, Barbican or Moorgate: (Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City Lines)
King's Cross Thameslink: (Piccadilly, Victoria, Metropolitan, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Northern (Bank Branch) Lines, plus BR services into King's Cross and St Pancras stations)
Kentish Town: (Northern Line (High Barnet Branch) plus other BR services)
West Hampstead Thameslink: (close to West Hampstead Jubilee Line and BR stations)
Northern Line to High Barnet and then 107 to Elstree Studios (as above).
From Elstree & Borehamwood station there are several buses which go close to the ground. They all leave from stop 'A'. You want to get off at the stop by McDonalds.
Alternatively you can walk. Walk past the car park and turn left up to the mini roundabout. Turn right and keep going until you get to McDonalds.
Walk from McDonalds/Elstree Studios:
You will be right by a large roundabout. From outside the studios, cross the main road (Elstree Way), cross over Shenley Road and turn right into Brook Road. From outside McDonalds, take the first left off the roundabout into Brook Road. On the right hand side of the road, there is a pay & display car park. Cut diagonally across this. There is a turnstile in the far corner. Alternatively, Broughinge Road is the road forking off to the right just after the car park. Follow it round to get to the club car park, main turnstiles and the club bar.

There are four pubs in Shenley Road. These are (in alphabetical order) as follows:
Crown, corner of Shenley Road and Theobald Street. I haven't been in here since it re-opened. It used to be the Enigma although it has been through a number of name changes. Back in the early 1990s it was called the Crown. Hart & Spool (J D Wetherspoon), next door to Tesco in Shenley Road and nearest to the ground. Wishing Well, next door to Woolies (I think). No real ale on the only occasion I went in there
and the only keg ale was Websters. Once bitten, etc. There's no reason for me to go back what with the Hart & Spool being so close by! Just like every other Wishing Well as far as I can see. Woods, nearly opposite the Crown. Used to be OKish in the days when it was run by two Irish brothers and had a big Warsteiner sign outside. No real ale.
There is also a pub up Theobald Street called, I believe, the Wellington. Another one I have only ever visited once. Definitely no reason for me to return because I would have to walk past the Crown to get there.
The other good pub in the area is the Mops & Brooms in Rowley Lane, Well End, which is within walking distance of the ground should you feel so inclined. It is a McMullens pub but keeps the beer well and the Gladstone, if they've got it now that it isn't a regular McMullens beer is rather good.
If you are going via Barnet, either on the 307 or from London on the Northern Line, before getting the 107 to Borehamwood, the Mitre is worth a visit. It is in Barnet High Street and is what's left of the oldest coaching inn in Hertfordshire, just down from the Old Bull Arts Centre. Although I know some people think it looks a bit ropey from the outside it isn't too bad. It used to be a whole lot better though.
In my opinion, the best of these is the Hart & Spool, followed by the Mops & Brooms and then the Mitre.
