Getting to The Dripping Pan

The Dripping Pan is easily accessible by rail, with Lewes Train Station a one-minute walk away. You can also catch the bus from Brighton and Eastbourne and be at the Pan in no time!

We encourage supporters to use public transport where possible. This both reduces congestion around the Dripping Pan and Mountfield Road area, and helps reduce pollution in Lewes.

If you do plan to drive to a game, the A27 and A26 connect the town in all directions. Mountfield Road car park is a pay-and-display site, while nearby street parking is limited.

Lewes railway station is a one-minute walk from the Dripping Pan. When you exit the main entrance, turn left and follow the path over the bridge. Then bear left at the roundabout. The ground will be in front of you.


We encourage fans to travel to the Pan via bicycle where possible. The closest public cycle racks are located at the Wave leisure centre and Lewes train station.

We hope to have a new installation for cycle parking closer to the Dripping Pan soon.

Anyone travelling from Brighton or the University of Sussex can take advantage of the cycle path that runs all the way to Lewes. Cycling from Falmer to Lewes takes around 20 minutes.


Lewes has a walkable town centre and the Dripping Pan is at the heart of our community.

You can walk from the High Street to the Pan in around eight minutes, and from Cliffe High Street in 13 minutes.


The Dripping Pan is at the very start of Mountfield Road, directly behind the station. If you are coming from the north or west, turn off the A27 for Lewes and turn right (signposted Rodmell and Piddinghoe) after about a mile at the first set of traffic lights, adjacent to the prison.

Follow that road until you get to a mini-roundabout by The Swan pub and turn left. Continue along this road and over the mini-roundabout straight into Mountfield Road, where the ground is on your right-hand side.

Be aware that parking during matchdays is very limited and we encourage fans to take public transport, cycle or walk instead.

Car parking

Metered street parking is available and there is a pay and display car park directly outside the ground (operating 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday). Please be aware that Lewes has quite a number of ‘keen’ traffic wardens patrolling the town, so please purchase a ticket where required. To use it, you will also need to have the RingGo app on your phone: iPhone version   Android version

There are two bays in the car park for people with Disability Permits. It should also be noted that this car park does not belong to the club so unfortunately, we cannot reserve any spaces.
