Where to go to see Chelsea or Arsenal when visiting London!
How to get to Stamford Bridge
Stamford Bridge is located rather centrally in London in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The stadium lies slightly less than 2 miles south-west of Hyde Park and the Harrods Store, and less than 3 miles south-west of Buckingham Palace.
The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway, which is on the District Line. One can get to Fulham Broadway by taking a Wimbledon-bound train from Earl’s Court station, which is on the Circle and Piccadilly Line. Earl’s Court station itself is also within walking distance of the stadium (20 minutes).
Alternatively, one can reach Stamford Bridge by London overground. Both West Brompton and Imperial Wharf stations are a 15-minute walk away from the stadium.
Various buses pass the stadium on Fulham Road, which include line 14 (from Euston Square to Putney), line 211 (from Waterloo Station to Hammersmith), and line 414 (from Maida Vale to Putney Bridge).
Other lines that pass in the vicinity of the stadium are bus 11 (from Liverpool Street Station), 28 (Kensal Rise), 296 (Ladbroke Grove and Clapham Junction), and 391 (Richmond).
Address: Stamford Bridge, Fulham Road, London, SW6 1HS
Tickets for Chelsea FC games can be purchased online, by phone +44 (0) 871 984 1905, or at the box office at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea club members get priority to buy match tickets. Practically all regular league matches sell out and it is therefore advised to buy as much in advance as possible. Tickets tend to go on general sale 42 days before the match.
Chelsea matches fall into three pricing categories. Tickets for category B games, the cheapest, range in price from £52.00 for a lower-tier seat at one of the ends to £70.00 for a seat at the upper West Stand. Tickets for category AA+ matches cost between £61.00 and £87.00. Some restricted view tickets can be a little cheaper.
You can find a seating plan here. For more information call 0 871 984 1905 (UK) or +44 207 835 6000 (international).
The Emirates Stadium is located in the Islington area, toward the north of London at just over 2 miles from Kings Cross St Pancras railway station.
There are multiple ways to reach the stadium by public transport. The underground (tube) is one option – the nearest tube station is Arsenal, which is on the Piccadilly line. Decent alternatives are stations Finsbury Park (Victoria and Piccadilly line) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria line and London overground). From both stations it is an approximate 10-minute walk to the stadium.
On non-matchdays, Holloway Road station (Piccadilly line) is located closest, but will be closed pre-match and is exit-only after the match.
Alternatively, one can catch a train to Finsbury Park or Highbury & Islington main line stations. It is a 5 to 10-minute journey coming from Kings Cross station. During the week trains depart from Moorgate as well. Drayton Park rail station, closest to the stadium, closes on matchdays.
Supporters are not advised to arrive by car on matchdays, and there is little parking available around the Emirates Stadium on non-matchdays.
Address: Emirates Stadium, London N5 1BU
Tickets for Arsenal matches can be bought online, or by phone 0844 277 3625 (+44 207 649 9003 if calling from abroad).
Arsenal is one of the clubs in the Premier League for which it is hardest to get tickets and one will often need an Arsenal membership to be able to acquire tickets. The most basic Red level membership currently costs £33.00 and with it tickets will generally be available in pre-sale.
Arsenal matches fall into three pricing categories. Tickets for category C matches, the cheapest, start at £26.00 for most lower-tier seats and range up to £51.00 for a central upper-tier seat. Tickets for category A matches, the most expensive, range from £63.50 for most lower-tier seats to £126.00 for a central upper-tier seat.
A further booking fee of about £2.00 applies. Tickets for members are a little bit cheaper.
