Trouble Factor:
Stamford Bridge is now a safe ground for the visiting fan despite it's previous reputation when the 'Shed' at Chelsea gave birth to some of the worst in football violence, most notably the infamous 'Headhunters'. Because of this reputation Stamford Bridge became one of the most heavily policed grounds in the country and ironically for the visiting fan, one of the safest. The 'Shed' is long gone, replaced by the Chelsea Village and the atmosphere is no longer as dangerous as it used to be.

Car Parking:
There is parking down the local side-streets, mostly on a pay-and-display basis, but it's very limited and local residents don't take kindly to football traffic.
Some supporters park to the south of the river, the other side of Battersea Bridge. As with most London grounds, it's by far the best policy to park well away from the ground and take the tube.

The pubs nearest the ground have an army of bouncers outside them and tend to be home fans only. However, within a two or three minute walk from the grounds the mood becomes much friendlier to the visiting fan.
