Craven Cottage Reviews
We designed and follow a tour of football stadiums, on our stay in London, and that was the second. A total traditional style English stadium of red bricks and an old school feeling. We also visit... more »
The tour was fun and engaging. Glad I got to experience such an amazing piece of football history. Our tour guide Paul was extremely knowledgable about the stadium. more »
As is quite well known, Craven Cottage is an excellent place to enjoy a match, even if you're in the "away" end (Fulham even have a "neutral zone"). It's quite startling to be walking through a rather upscale neighborhood (or leafy park) and suddenly come across a football stadium, but that's part of its charm. There aren't too many big clubs that have such a distinctive ground -- even if they did remove the Michael Jackson statue -- so even if you're not a fan, it's definitely worth catching a game here.
Fantastic traditional football ground. Please do not change it, do not build another stadium, do not move to another stadium. This is a very nice and traditional football stadium on a very nice location near the river. Plenty of pre match drinks and food possibilities in the near area.
