Stamford Bridge first opened its doors back in 1877 and has been the home of Chelsea Football Club
since 1905, ideally located in the vibrant heart of London’s Fulham area. The stadium’s modern facilities, coupled with Chelsea’s continued on-field success, make for a fantastic match day experience.
The ground’s central location means there’s no shortage of transport options for fans looking to get to and from the ground without breaking their budget. This Liftshare guide highlights the quickest and cheapest ways to travel to The Bridge.
How to get to Stamford Bridge
Tube and Train
The nearest subway station to the ground is Fulham Broadway, located just a few hundred yards down Fulham Road. The station forms part of the District Line which runs
from central London. Alternatively, make use of the two Overground stations – West Brompton or Imperial Wharf – both of which lie within a mile of the stadium.
Bus and River Bus
The 14, 211 and 414 bus routes travel along Fulham Road throughout the day and evening, providing a convenient link between the ground and central London.
Alternatively, why not take to the water for a scenic ride down the Thames on board the River Bus? The service isn’t available on weekends, but if you’re visiting for a midweek fixture it could be just the ticket. The nearest stop to Stamford Bridge is Chelsea Harbour, just over a mile to the south of the stadium. More details can be found here
The area around Stamford Bridge is subject to strict parking regulations throughout the week, with no parking sites available to supporters. Finding a parking lot further afield and completing the final leg of your journey by public transport may be the best solution.
If you’re visiting the ground outside of a match day or perhaps looking to drop someone off ahead of match, then use the SW6 1HS post code for your sat nav system.
Prefer to make your way to the ground on two wheels? The stadium contains bicycle parking facilities which enable you to securely lock up your bicycle during the match. Space is fairly limited, however, so make sure you arrive in plenty of time.
Lift share to and from Stamford Bridge
Travelling by car across London can be expensive for those who live there, let alone if you’re a visiting supporter commuting from other parts of the country. Thankfully, however, there is one common solution: car sharing. Invite friends, family or fellow supporters to join you on your journey and split the cost of petrol and parking while you’re at it.

before and after the game – the choice is yours!
