Located on the Thames riverside, Craven Cottage has a rather unique history. The current stadium is built on the ruins of the original Craven Cottage that burned down in May of 1888, with rumoured ex-residents including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Florence Nightingale.
Famously home to Fulham FC this is the clubs ninth ground, having failed previously to find a permanent home. Since 1896 however the pitch has been witnessing some of the finest displays of football in the world.
The stadium is recognised as a ‘classic’, with single-tiered stands and a flat roof supported on pillars. The Johnny Haynes Stand is considered a historical building, with a Grade II listed status, having been designed by noted Scottish engineer and architect Archibald Leitch.
There is no seating in the corners apart from the clubhouse, which is quite literally a house, or ‘The Cottage’, which was originally used as a changing room for players, this special building is now used for corporate clients.
At the moment the Riverside Stand is being redeveloped to increase capacity and provide improved facilities with an expected reopening in 2021. The new stand will improve the surrounding area as well, with a new pathway along the River Thames providing a scenic route for visiting guests.
Craven Cottage is well serviced by the London Transport system with multiple bus services ending near the stadium.
