Transport & Directions to Stamford Bridge
While there are officially 6 airports in London, some are significantly more convenient than others. The closest to Stamford Bridge and recommended airport to fly to is Heathrow. The Heathrow Express train is the quickest way into the Centre of London terminating at Paddington and from there, the London Underground, bus or taxi can be used to make your way to Stamford Bridge. The nearest Underground station to Stamford Bridge is Fulham Broadway on the Distric Line. There are alternate methods of transport from the airport to London including the London Underground, bus or taxi. For more information on using public transport and for planning journeys in London see the Transport for London website here.
If flying to Heathrow is not suitable then the next recommended airports to fly to would be either Gatwick or London City Airport. It would not be recommended to fly to Southend or London Luton due to the distance from London and inconvenience of travel into the city. The Transport for London website can again be used to plan travel from any of these airports.
If you’re planning on taking the train to Stamford Bridge, the closest stations are West Brompton to the north and Imperial Wharf to the south. Both are a 15-minute walk from Stamford Bridge. Both stations are on the line between Milton Keynes Central and South Croydon, as well as the West London line of the London Overground. West Brompton is also on the District Line of the London Underground, as is the closest Underground station to Stamford Bridge, Fulham Broadway.
There is a cycle shed made available for cyclists at Stamford Bridge for anyone who lives locally and may wish to cycle to the stadium.
Should you be staying within walking distance to the stadium, Stamford Bridge is on the Fulham Road and is accessible on foot from all directions.
By River Boat
For anyone wishing to travel to the stadium in style, River Boats run on the Thames Monday to Friday. The closest pier to Stamford Bridge is Chelsea Harbour. Boats that stop at this pier run between Putney Pier and Blackfriars Pier. The latest eastbound boat arrives at Chelsea Harbour around 6.20pm. The latest westbound boat arrives at 7.35pm. More information on this can again be accessed on the Transport for London website here.
The club recommends not driving to the stadium due to unavailability of parking in the surrounding area however taxi’s and ride-hailing services can get access to the stadium relatively easily. However, should you wish to drive to the stadium regardless then:
- Driving from The North, East or West:
Use the M25 to Junction 15 and turn off onto the M4 towards London. Follow the M4 which becomes the A4 up to Hammersmith. Go over the Hammersmith Flyover and a further 1.5 miles before turning off for Earls Court. Go past Earls Court station and across Old Brompton Road, eventually reaching Fulham Road. Turn right at the traffic lights. After 600 yards, the ground is on the right. Parking is difficult very close to the ground.
- Driving from The South:
Cross the river at Wandsworth Bridge and head up Wandsworth Bridge Road. At the junction with New King’s Road, turn right and then immediately left. This will take you up to Fulham Broadway. Turn right onto Fulham Road and the ground is 400 yards on the left. Parking is difficult very close to the ground
