Chelsea

UK travel information

Despite the team name, Stamford Bridge (Chelsea’s ground) is not based in Chelsea, but instead is in the Fulham area of London (Chelsea have “enjoyed” a long-standing rivalry with their near neighbours Fulham over the years). In the last decade, following the million-pound backing of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Chelsea have risen to great success, winning both the Premier League and the FA Cup three times each since 2000.   

With regular appearances in the Champions League, Chelsea can now rightfully boast that they are one of the top three football teams in the UK. Nowadays, a list of “rivals” is more likely to feature Manchester United, Arsenal, Barcelona and Real Madrid, than local team Fulham. 

Chelsea



Given Chelsea’s recent success (and no doubt, their London base has also got something to do with it), Stamford Bridge does have a reputation for being one of the more expensive grounds to visit. For your money, though, you can enjoy the Chelsea Megastore, a variety of stadium tour options and a visit to the Chelsea Museum. 

The Chelsea Megastore is open on weekdays and match days (before and after the match). Tours of the stadium last around one hour and include both dressing rooms, pitch side and the opportunity to have your photo taken with both the Premier League Trophy and the FA Cup.  

Tours are not available on match days, but are every 30 minutes between 11am and 3pm. They cost £15 for adults, £9 for children over 5 and £10 for concessions. To visit the Chelsea Museum only, prices are just over half the full tour amount. Chelsea FC does recommend that you ring them beforehand to check availability.  

Getting to Stamford Bridge: 

BY ROAD - If arriving from the North, follow the M25 to J25.

  • At J25, take the M4 towards London (it becomes the A4 at Hammersmith).
  • Continue on the A4 over Hammersmith Flyover and turn for Earls Court after 1 ½ miles.
  • Follow the one-way system to Fulham Road and turn right at the traffic lights. The stadium is 500 yards on the right.
  • If arriving from the South, travel on the M3 as far as J2 and then join the M25. Now follow the directions as above.

BY RAIL 

The nearest railway station to Stamford Bridge is West Brompton, which is around a 15-minute walk away. After leaving the station, turn right, then right again into Brompton Cemetery. You will notice the ground on your right soon afterwards. Fulham Broadway (on the District Line) is the nearest tube station – just a few minutes from the ground. To get to Fulham Broadway, take a tube to Earls Court and take a Wimbledon-bound train. 

BY AIR  

London Heathrow is around 14 miles away. Upon arriving Heathrow, take the Piccadilly Line tube to Earls Court station (this will connect with Fulham Broadway – see rail instructions). 

Chelsea can claim to be one of the top football teams in the world, a change that has only really occurred in the last decade. But with a team full of world class players and a trophy cabinet to match, Chelsea have established themselves at the very top of the game. A visit to Stamford Bridge will be a visit to remember.
