How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
I appreciate it is horrific to drive to! Gone by train both times, getting off at Thornton Heath, so its not too bad by train.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
N/A

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Away fans are given half of the side stand, which can be horrific, or pretty good depending on where you are. Very shallow, couple of pillars, and the stand goes very far back, which can lead to an infamous letterbox view. I think given the options, Ive been fairly fortunate on both my visits.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
They dont give a toss. No bother about standing, and both times Ive been, people have been quite happily bringing beer into the stands! The epitomy of just leaving us alone to do what we want!

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
The concourse area is unbelievably cramped, so not even worth trying.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Its excellent from the Palace fans, and the away end is made for making a hell of a lot of noise too.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
You pass plenty on the walk from Thornton Heath, including a couple of away friendly pubs. The ground also has a few of the obligatory burger vans, though one of them outside the main stand is absolutely lovely.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Its an utter hole...but somehow in a good way.
7/10
