Getting there is fairly simple because there are a lot of public transport links. While you can drive and park, the spaces can be limited and getting out of town afterwards can mean a lot of traffic and going through the busy city center (not to mention the congestion charge). Those staying in the city center can jump on the central line on the underground to White City which is the nearest tube station and only a 5 minute walk to the stadium.
For those travelling nationally or regionally on the train service you need to look at getting to Clapham Junction or Shepherd’s Bush (which is the closest to the stadium) and then you can opt to walk or get the tube (see above).
If you prefer to get the bus there are several options from around London that take you to White City tube station and these are the number 220, 72 or 95. A daily travelcard from inside London that will take you on the underground and overground will cost you about £12-£15 although it will cost more if you are coming into London. Black taxis can also be hailed on the day although these are more expensive than pre-booking.
Loftus Road is easily accessible through a variety of different transportation options. The nearest tube stations are White City on the Central line and Wood Lane on the Hammersmith & City line, both around a 10 minute walk away. Both of these tube stations are in Zone 2 and a one way ticket will cost £4.90. However a better option if you are making any other journeys that day would be to get a day pass for £12.10. Shepherd’s Bush station is also around a 15 minute walk from Loftus Road and is accessible via overland train from both Watford and Clapham Junction.
There are also bus routes than run near to the station with the numbers 72,95 and 220 all stopping at White City underground station, a 10 minute walk from the stadium.
There’s plenty of restricted parking around Loftus Road, so public transport is usually your best bet. Both White City and Wood Lane Station are within 7 minutes’ walk of the ground, so I recommend the underground! There is an above-ground train station (Shepherds Bush) but it is quite awkward to get to from Central London.
