4.5
#39 of 315 in Fun & Games in London
Craven Cottage is a football stadium located in Fulham, London. It has been the home ground of Fulham F.C. since 1896.

The ground's capacity was 25,700, all-seated, until the closure of the Riverside Stand in the close season of 2019, though the record attendance is 49,335, for a game against Millwall, 8 October 1938. Located next to Bishop's Park on the banks of the River Thames, 'Craven Cottage' was originally a royal hunting lodge and has history dating back over 300 years.
As well as by Fulham, the stadium has been also been used by the United States men's national football team, Australia national football team, the Republic of Ireland national football team (for a friendly match in 2012), and Canada men's national football team, and was formerly the home ground for rugby league team Fulham RLFC.

  • 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.
