One of my favorites I have visited. Premier league, modernized stadium but it still has the old traditional look/style. Love the stands with upper and lower tiers. This is a great football stadium with a great atmosphere. Right in the heart of a nice area of London. Many pubs and food places in the area. If you get affordable tickets, be happy and enjoy the game!
I went here to watch a band at a place called under the bridge, it's on the same complex as the stadium. We had a fantastic couple of nights. We were definitely not watching any football 😁
