  • I went to the place 10 years ago saw the Premier League for the first time. From 10 years ago, almost not changed shape, too small-not from the ticket gate. It is not only about 20000 people capacity, this size is very good. Showing in the 4th row from the front row, but 45 pounds and is very cheap.

  • Maybe this is the kind of stadium every stadium should look like. What a great atmosphere and crowd. For sure I will visit this stadium when I'm in London to what the FFC playing their game. Tickets can be simply ordered online and it was very easy to get tickets for the long-end side of the stadium
  • Great football ground in lovely surroundings smack on the Thames. I'm told the Craven Cottage pies are splendid.
  • Stewards friendly and good laugh. Nice area and more important away pubs close to ground.
  • I love this place because Fulham FC play there. Aside from that, it has charm and character and history in droves. Recommend the stadium tour.
  • If you want to visit a proper traditional football club in England you can't go wrong with the cottage. Family friendly atmosphere and awesome crowd in the Hammersmith end.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
