History and description

Loftus Road was built in 1904, but it only became QPR's home ground in 1917. QPR brought one covered seating stand from their previous ground at Park Royal, and the rest of the stadium consisted of open terraces. The club was forced to sell its stadium in 1971 and played its last game at Loftus Road on 3 May 1975. In 1981, QPR moved to the new Loftus Road Stadium. The unsatisfied ground-seekers at Queens Park Rangers moved from their original location at Highbury in 1931 to nearby White City Stadium, only to move back a few years later to Loftus Road. A new covered terrace opened in 1938, but there were few other changes over the following decades. The club was forced to sell its stadium in 1971 and played its last game there on 3 May 1975. After playing out their final season at Loftus Road in 1981, QPR moved to the newly built Loftus Road Stadium.

In the early 1960s, QPR transferred to White City Stadium, but after one season they moved back.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Loftus Road got its current shape with the construction of the South Africa Road and Ellerslie Road stands. The stands lifted capacity to about 35,000. In 1980 and 1981, the stands at both ends were rebuilt.

In the 1990s, the stadium was converted from an all-seater to a smaller capacity. This reduced the number of seats to below 20,000.

Between 2002 and 2004, Fulham played their home matches at Craven Cottage while Loftus Road was being renovated.

QPR is currently investigating a move to a new stadium. They want to build it at a different location in West-London, but no concrete plans have been unveiled yet.

Getting to Loftus Road

Loftus Road is located in the west of London, in the Shepherd's Bush area. The stadium lies about 2 miles west from the western edge of Hyde Park, slightly less than 2 miles west from Portobello Road in Notting Hill, and about 1.5 miles north-west from Kensington High Street. If arriving by car from the A40, turn off at White City, turn south onto Wood Lane, and then drive until you reach South Africa Road.

The nearest underground (tube) station is White City on the Central Line. Alternatively, both Wood Lane and Shepherd's Bush Market stations on the Hammersmith & City and Circle Line are a 10-minute walk away.

Furthermore, there are Shepherd's Bush station on the London overground as well as the Central line, which is located 15 minutes walking from the ground.

The buses 283 (from Barnes), 72 (from Putney Heath), 95 (from Southall) and 220 (from Wandsworth) all pass the stadium in close proximity.

Address: South Africa Road, London, W12 7PJ

Eat, drink, and sleep near Loftus Road

Is Loftus Road located in London's Shepherd Bush area, which has a reasonable variety of restaurants of different cuisines, most of which are on Uxbridge Road? There are a few pubs mixed in as well, and the nearby Westfield Shopping Center is one of the largest of Europe and has over 60 eating and drinking options. Alternatively, the Notting Hill and Kensington areas are neither far away. There are no hotels located directly next to Loftus Road, but a variety of accommodations can be found within walking distance of Shepherd Bush tube station and Goldhawk Road station. The J West Hotel, Grantly Hotel, Ibis Shepherd Bush, and Royal London Hotel are all rated 4/5 stars and offer rooms for under £100.00 per night. There are many other options available though, which you can find here on the hotel website.

Alternatively, the not-far-away Bayswater area is a favourite tourist destination for those on a more modest budget, as it is only a short tube ride away. The Kensington area will be convenient for those who have more money to spend.

QPR Tickets

Tickets for QPR games can be purchased online, by phone +44 (0) 8444 777 007, or at the QPR box office at Loftus Road. If tickets remain available, fans are recommended to purchase them at the box office before the start of the match. However, QPR has not always sold out games even in the Premier League, so it is advised to buy tickets in advance.

Prices for tickets to matches depend on the opponent, with categories for seats behind the goal starting at £30.00 and going up to £50.00 for seats at one of the sides. Prices for top matches start at £50.00. Some tickets that give a better view than others can be cheaper, but they are not recommended because they do not offer an optimal viewing experience.

You can find a stadium map here. For more information, email [email protected] or call +44 (0) 8444 777 007.

Stadium tours

QPR offers self-guided and guided tours on selected dates. Tours include access to the dressing rooms, players tunnel, dugouts, directors box, and media areas. The QPR website provides information about upcoming dates and times for tours. Tours can be booked online or by phone. The tour costs £15.

Relevant Internet links

The website of Queens Park Rangers Football Club, the official London city guide, and the London Underground public transport website are all great resources for exploring London. The stadium is completely enclosed and has a contiguous boundary between the stands and the pitch. Incidental features include a video screen mounted above the School End, a television gantry suspended below the roof of the Ellerslie Road Stand, and four elegantly slim floodlight pylons emanating from behind the School and Loftus Road end.
