About
Visit Craven Cottage, the iconic home of Fulham Football Club, London's oldest professional football club. Walk in the footsteps of some of the greatest players to ever play the game; marvel at the 1905 Pavilion, designed by the legendary Archibald Leitch and try a seat in the Johnny Haynes Stand, named after the clubs greatest player and England captain, the first £100 a week player. Take a seat in the changing room, imagine you are playing in the match and listening to the Head Coach give a team talk. Take your place in the dugout and players tunnel and walk in the footsteps of George Cohen, the only English right-back to win the World Cup, back in 1966. The ground is traditional, historical and fascinating. Our tours are all led by an official guide who will be delighted to show you a truly special, famous and iconic ground. Come on Fulham!

Stadium tour

The stadium tour was absolutely brilliant. Ian, our tour guide, was a wealth of knowledge. Fulham has an incredible history and Craven Cottage is the perfect example of exactly that! 5⭐️

If you’re a football fan or a history buff a tour of Craven Cottage is a must. Our tour was led by Ed Vanson who has a wealth of historical information, shared with us the famous players who played for Fulham Football Club (FFC), managers, owners, builders right down to the humble beginnings of the Boys From St Andrews. Did you know that the Stevenage Road Stand, now known as the Johnny Haynes Stand named after FFC’s most beloved and famous footballer, is the oldest seating structure in the UK complete with the old wood seat still being used today? Being able to enter Craven Cottage itself and see the locker rooms, the Club House and the guest balcony with its view of the pitch is something that I never thought I’d experience, but I did! And, then to be able walk through the same tunnel that the players use to come onto the pitch for the matches and set foot on the pitch was way to cool !! A big thank you to Ed and Brenden for their hospitality and patience as they both afforded us to ask as many questions as we wanted and take as many photos as we wanted which extended our one-hour tour to a 1-1/2 hour tour !!

When it comes to football stadiums, London has a lot to offer: top-notch, state of the art new football stadiums seem to be te standard. While that certainly is very impressive, you will not experience the nostalgia and history of the club at the Emirates or the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium like you will at Craven Cottage. We had a very interesting tour hosted by guides Ian and Pedro who are clearly not just employees, but also genuine fans of their club. The group consisted of approximately 10 people which made for a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of time to ask any questions one might have. When doing a trip to London as a football enthousiast, a trip to Craven Cottage must definitely on your to do list!

Stadium visit
Oct 2021 • Family
Our family, including my husband who is an amputee ,visited Craven Cottage today for the elf match. Tony ,the accessibility steward and his colleague were helpful from the moment we arrived. They showed us where the toilets were and where to get refreshments. We were taken to the access area for away fans and given time to settle before my daughter and I took our seats in the stands. Where we were seated one of the seats was labelled accessible but for someone with a stick it would have been difficult as the steps down to the front are uneven. Also our seats were below pitch level.
Currently home and away fans mix as the ground is been refurbished . I think this would be problematic in the longer term.
Overall a positive experience and enjoyable visit except for the result of the game.

Best football stadium in London!

We had a great time on the Craven Cottage tour - both my boys and my mum absolutely loved it. Run by a real fan which makes it more special. A unique ground so should definitely be top of your list!

Had a fantastic time on the Craven Cottage 125 year anniversary tour. The guide knew a huge amount about the ground and presented it in an interesting and informative way. Especially enjoyed seeing all the old shirts and the original cottage. It’s the second time doing this tour and even more enjoyable than the first. Topped off by our picture ending up in the programme. Recommend to anyone especially those who are Fulham fans.

Pure nostalgia!
Oct 2021
We visited this stadium just a few hours after visiting Tottenham Hotspur Stadium: the contrast couldn't possibly be bigger.
Craven Cottage breathes nostalgia and our tour guides Ian and Pedro breathe the love for their club and its history. How a club with that kind of installations can host the best (paid) footballers of the world is not only a miracle, it will certainly remember them what real football should be about: just a game, without being dominated by big money.
We will certainly return to this wonderful place, this time to watch a game, hopefully in one of the wooden chairs on Johnny Haynes Stand. I wonder if my knees will survive it!

Lovely old stadium, with great fan base
Oct 2021 • Friends
One of my favourite stadiums in the UK. It’s managed to maintain the old club feel especially in the stand with the wooden seats. Great to still see the cottage in one end as well. Atmosphere is usually great and fans well behaved. Only problem is it can be a bit tricky to get tickets using their online system.

The stadium tour was very good and easy to arrange. Thanks to Ed for organising and Christian was an excellent tour guide giving lots of insight and giving lots of time and allowed lots of questions to have an excellent experience.
