History and description

A second cottage was rebuilt in 1910, only to be destroyed by a fire in 1960. A third cottage was subsequently built and still stands today. Craven Cottage has a history dating back to 1780 when a cottage was built in the woods and the surrounding fields were used for various sports. The site, however, later fell into disuse and the original cottage burned down in 1888. A second cottage was rebuilt in 1910, only to be destroyed by a fire in 1960. A third cottage was subsequently built and still stands today. The Fulham Football Club had played at various grounds before selecting a ground near the River Thames as their new home. After cleaning up the overgrown field, they played their first match at the ground in 1896. The Craven Cottage stand at that time consisted of just a basic wooden structure.

This began in 1906 when a proper stand was built. The stand, currently called Johnny Haynes Stand, had a distinctive red brick facade. It was designed by Archibald Leitch and accompanied by a pavilion, which is now the Cottage.

Craven Cottage was further expanded with terraces in the next decades, reaching its record attendance in 1938 when a total of 49,335 spectators attended a game against Millwall. One decade later, Craven Cottage hosted a few games during the 1948 Olympic Games.

Craven Cottage saw further improvements over the course of the following years, culminating with the construction of the Riverside Stand in 1972. Fulham played most of the 1980s and 1990s in lower league football, meaning that few further changes were made to Craven Cottage.

However, the club was unable to find a suitable site and consequently Fulham returned to Craven Cottage in 2012. Fulham started climbing up the English Premier League in the late 1990s, achieving promotion to the Premier League in 2001. However, because their stadium was not up to Premier League standards, Fulham had to move to Loftus Road for a year (after a first year of dispensation) and then return to Craven Cottage in 2012.

However, due to opposition and spiralling costs, the plans to reconstruct Craven Cottage had to be abandoned. The chosen option was to refurbish the cottage in 2004.

Craven Cottage remained one of the smallest grounds in the Premier League, and Fulham therefore considered either moving to a new stadium (possibly shared with another West-London club) or further redeveloping Craven Cottage.

The club in the end decided to stay at Craven Cottage and began developing plans to build a new Riverside Stand, which would increase capacity to 30,000 seats. While they had their plans approved in 2013, works on the stand have yet to start.

The views from the Riverside Stand are especially good if you can avoid the restricted view seats, and during half-time you can pop out again and have a look over the Thames.If you wish to get something to eat or drink during half-time, it may make sense to walk towards the Hammersmith End where queues seemed significantly shorter.The atmosphere was relatively subdued with neither the home nor away fans particularly boisterous, and while initially still rather promising, quickly petered out as a result of the quality of football on display.After the match we decided to walk to Hammersmith tube station to avoid any possible further delays. While we did not know the exact way, there was a significant number of other fans taking the same option that we could follow.Overall, Craven Cottage is one of the English stadiums with a lot of character, and is definitely worth a visit if you are in London.

Match visited: Fulham FC vs Blackpool FC Date visited: 5 January 2013

We took advantage of the discounted admission prices for an FA Cup tie to visit Craven Cottage.

We arrived with the District Line and got off at Putney Bridge Station. The District Line delay meant that we only arrived a few minutes before the match at the ground, but we were among a good crowd to make our way through Bishop's Park. It takes about fifteen minutes to get from the tube to the ground.

We had purchased our tickets online before, and as a result, were able to get into the stadium quickly and be seated before the match began.

We purchased tickets for all of the stands at the same price, and we were able to get seats in the center section of the Riverside Stand. This was great.

You walk through a tunnel to the Putney End stand and then end up right along the river Thames. The views from the Riverside Stand are great if you can avoid the restricted view seats, and during half-time you can pop out again and have a look over the Thames.

If you want to buy something to eat or drink during half-time, it may be a good idea to walk towards the Hammersmith End. Queues seemed much shorter there.

The subdued atmosphere led to little fan noise, as quality football on display didn't generate much excitement.

After the game we decided to walk to Hammersmith tube station in order to avoid any possible further delays. We did not know the exact way, but there were a significant number of other fans taking the same option that we could follow.

Overall, Craven Cottage is an English stadium with a lot of character, and it is definitely worth a visit if you are in London.

Thank you Fulham for doing this - it is great that people are trusted to behave sensibly and from what I have seen they respond to that opportunity. I have sat there several times and never seen anything bother me. The only complaint I have is the overpriced and average food inside the ground, and the hugely expensive tickets for Category A games (ie Man U, Man City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and any other London PL team - ie QPR currently and West Ham last season). It is a great place to watch football - the antidote to so many concrete soul-less, pre-fab stadiums that now grace so much of the UK.

The dressing rooms are located on the home side of the stadium, with a quirky balcony that's good for spotting visiting managers and non-playing players. The final stand is the Riverside stand which backs right onto the River Thames.

Craven Cottage does not have the noisiest stadium by a long way, and the atmosphere is particularly friendly for evening games. The place is really, really welcoming right from the fans through to the staff - even the ones who search you as you come in.

Thank you Fulham for taking this approach - it is wonderful to see that people are trusted to behave sensibly, and from what I have seen they seem to respond to that opportunity. I have sat there several times and never seen or heard any trouble. The only complaint I have is the relatively expensive and average food inside the ground, and the hugely expensive tickets for Category A games (ie Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and any other London Premier League team - ie QPR currently and West Ham last season).

. The stadium is a great place to watch football - a remedy to so many concrete, soul-less, pre-fab stadiums that now grace so much of the UK.

The terrace didn't seem level, and the stands behind the goals were old and tatty but that what made my visit great. It still had its history, with pretty sure it still had wooden seats as well. The cottage is unique and to me very strange to see at a football ground, but this is what makes grounds special - I love the old school stand I stood in with its brick work on the outside. There's no new metal plastic stuff they use now.
