  • The best stadium tour for those who really like football! It's an authentic experience during 1h15m in an unique stadium. I've done several other stadium tours and this was, by far, the best!! Truly r...  more »
  • Fulham are not in the top division however it is still a good standard and draws around 18,000 strong crowd. We sat in the neutral stand which was great. Also fun to be near the away supporters who ga...  more »

  • Love this stadium!! I don't support Fulham, but I come here as much as I can with a friend. The team are doing great right now but the stadium is just full of character, I love it! Always a great atmosphere, fans are friendly and there's is generally a good game of football to watch. Leaving is pretty simple and the crowds aren't too bad, just don't bother trying to drive there unless your willing to pay to park and/or park a couple miles away.
  • Lovely old ground, with classic features. Great location next to the Thames. I sat in the neutral zone as the away tickets were sold out. Good atmosphere. All the better as Wolves won 3-0 - This was Sept 2015.
  • The atmosphere was fantastic, I was really looking forward to see this game. The view was restricted on both west and east sides. Far away from the tube station and main road but considering the importance of the match it was a great place.
  • The stadium is beautiful and excellent. The programme is a good read. So what lets Craven Cottage down? The stewards are crazily temperamental. A 20 yr old steward wanting to check that a 60 year old steward had thoroughly searched my bag. What the heck? They charged Brentford fans £35. Their strategy probably to deter the Bees fans coming as we make too much noise and the Bees is a better football team!
  • Best place in London to watch football. Firstly you will have more luck getting a ticket, and they don’t have many bad seats. Fair prices as well and a family friendly crowd (not often you can that in England!).
