If mayhem, rowdiness and public displays of drunkenness are your idea of a good time, then you will certainly want to catch a sporting event at Craven Cottage.

Home of the Fulham Football Club since 1896, football fans from all over England make their way to Craven Cottage for regional, national and international games. The capacity of this venue is 25,700. Guided tours are available of the historic grounds; check website for dates, times and prices. For ticket information, call +0843 208 1234.
Craven Cottage is known as one of the most family-friendly grounds in the premier league. I've been there 7 times in the last 2 years and have seen none of the public drunkiness or rowdiness the preview claims. Are you sure your not thinkng of West Ham or Milwall? It's a very old stadium, with only a few renovations after the team made it back to the Premiership in the early 2000's and it's a bit of a walk from the tube. But once there, it's in a fine neighborhood and the atmosphere is classic English football. If your looking for a monstrous stadium with all the amenities, go to Arsenal. But for a fine day at a match, it's hard to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage.
