When you visit Craven Cottage you immediately drown in luxury problems. There are three great approach routes to the stadium. The most famous is the one from Putney Bridge tube station, and afterwards you walk through the beautiful Bishops Park, parallel to the Thames. On match days you will find a charming mix of football supporters, local residents and children playing football.
Also very nice is a small detour via the main Fulham Palace Road, then left onto Finlay Street . From that street you walk towards 'The Cottage', between the old Victorian houses.
The third nice approach is from the northern side of the stadium, from Hammersmith tube station. From there too, you can enjoy a lovely walk along the Thames, and about half way up you'll find a great pub for a ‘match day pint': The Crabtree.
