By Road

From The North, East or West

Use the M25 to take you round to junction 15 and turn off onto the M4 towards London, follow the M4 which becomes the A4 up to Hammersmith. Stay on it over the Hammersmith flyover and for a further 1.5 miles before turning off for Earls Court. Go past Earls Court station and down the one way system until you hit Fulham Road, turn right at the traffic lights. Go straight on for 600 yards and the ground is on your right. Parking is difficult very close to the ground so you may want to look a bit further away.

Head for Wandsworth bridge to cross the river. If using Wandsworth bridge, cross the river and head straight up Wandsworth Bridge Road. At the Junction with New Kings Road turn right and then immediately left. This will take you up to Fulham Broadway, turn right onto Fulham Road and the ground is 400 yards on your left. Parking is difficult very close to the ground so you may want to look a bit further away.

Car Parking


There is little free parking near the ground. It is mostly pay-and-display or residents only. The ground has an underground car park for ?20 per car but there is no access after 2pm. This ground, like most of the London grounds, has very limited parking, and it's advisable to park away from the ground and then travel by tube.

Pubs Near Stamford Bridge

This is a popular pub, that can be found at the North East corner of Parsons Green. Leave the Parsons Green tube station using the right hand exit. As you exit the station turn right and walk 50 yds down the road to the White Horse on the left hand side.

The Slug and Lettuce

The Slug and Lettuce is a modern pub, part of the Slug and Lettuce chain of bars, and is probably the best pub for away fans. They serve basic pub food and have a good range of beers on offer. It's located just Fulham Broadway station, and only a few minutes walk to the ground. Like all good football pubs, it gets very busy, so arrive early.

Pulse is a modern, lively bar located on Kings Road. It serves authentic Thai cuisine and a good selection of beers, and also boasts two plasma screens and Sky TV.

The Fox and Pheasant

Walk past stamford bridge along the Fulham Road, go over the railway line, first foad on the right (private road) pub is down on right. This is a real gem, looks like it hasnt changed since it was built (the public bar on left) small and snug, serves greene king ales in good condition. Rear beer garden covered, a good crowd on matchdays no trouble.

Sofa So Bar

The Sofa So Bar is directly opposite Stamford Bridge, and is the closest bar to the gound. On match days the atmosphere is something very special. Get there early (opens at 11.00am) - we get exceptionally busy, with satellite bottle bars and a burger bar (all big, fat and home-made) just to cope with demand. We are open until 6.30 PM (saturdays) for the after-football crowd but then close in order to re-open for the evening set at 8.00 PM.
