#57 of 251 in Fun & Games in London
Selhurst Park is an association football stadium located in the London suburb of Selhurst in the Borough of Croydon. It is the current home ground of Crystal Palace Football Club playing in the Premier League. The stadium was designed by architect Archibald Leitch and opened in 1924. The stadium has hosted one international football match as well as games for the 1948 Summer Olympics and a number of other sports. Part of the stadium incorporates a branch of Sainsbury's. The stadium was shared by Charlton Athletic F.C. from 1985 until 1991 and then by Wimbledon F.C. from 1991 until 2003.HistoryIn 1922 the site, a former brickfield, was bought from the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway Company for £2,570. The club had been pursuing a deal for the ground as early as 25 February 1919. The stadium, designed by Scottish stadium architect Archibald Leitch, was constructed by Humphreys of Kensington (a firm regularly used by Leitch) for around £30,000, and was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of London on 30 August 1924. There was then only one stand, the present Main Stand, but this was unfinished due to industrial action; Crystal Palace played Sheffield Wednesday and lost 0–1 in front of 25,000 fans.

  • Selhurst Park is classic old stadium with four different stands. Whereas a lot of modern stadiums feel very similar and devoid of atmosphere, Selhurst Park has retained this and is an excellent venue ...  more »
  • I have visited Selhurst Park twice, and both times I have visited as an away fan. Accessibility-wise, it's fine because it's pretty much equidistant between three railway stations, so no issues there....  more »

  • If your a palace fan a must visit and recent updates have made it better and larger.

  • Now have 2 shops at the ground but like most football clubs items are a bit pricey.

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.
