Craven Cottage, Fulham’s stadium rests on the banks of the Thames and is the oldest football stadium in London. The club’s London location means there are plenty of options to choose from.
Craven Cottage is a great stadium to enjoy the game. You should definitely pick up a match day programme before kick-off. It has top insight into the match including interviews with players and the latest news about the club. The club also has food and drink on offer so you can grab a quick bite during half time.
A great way to explore the rich history of the stadium is on a special stadium tour. The tours takes in unique sites such as the Johnny Hayne statue which is a tribute to the best player the club ever had. You will then go around the rest of the stadium and get a behind-the-scenes look at areas not usually open to the public such as the Television Studio. The tour really is perfect for any Fulham fan as you even get to go into the pitch-side dugouts and the players’ changing rooms.
After the match you can head away from the stadium to one of the great restaurants available in the surrounding area. A brilliant restaurant to try that is only a short walk from the stadium is the Buenos Aires Argentine Steakhouse. The restaurant is part of a group that is so successful they have eight Steakhouses all over London. They specialise in grass-fed cuts of beef from Argentina but also offer other authentic Argentinian dishes. One dish you really should try is their Humita which is a creamed sweetcorn dish.
Another great place near to the club is La Pizzica. The restaurant specialises in traditional Italian food from the heel of Italy, Salento. The restaurant has a friendly family atmosphere and they serve freshly cut Italian meats as well as pizzas and pasta.
