Sun Gate is the best place to be dropped off because of the Formula E race track being built (many areas are restricted). It's then a short walk due east to the ground. The gate is situated at the junction of Albert Bridge Road & Prince of Wales Drive, and is a pedestrian gate only. The post code is SW11 4NJ as most taxis now use it.
