Premier League Away Ground Guide

Last updated: 15th August, 2023

Travelling to watch the Reds away from home this season? Here’s our guide to the away grounds in the Premier League.


Arsenal – The Emirates Stadium

Address: Hornsey Rd, London N7 7AJ

Capacity: 60,432

Away Fans’ Pubs: The Drayton Arms/Park, or for a mixture of home and away supporters, Twelve Pins and/or The Blackstock. I must add, if you like pies, you must swing by Piebury Corner on Holloway Road or Kings Cross. They are elite.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: You will be reminded of Anfield ’89. I’ve no doubt about this.

Aston Villa – Villa Park

Capacity: 42,785

Away fans’ pubs: The Witton Arms on Witton Lane, near the roundabout.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: I’ll give you three pieces of advice.

Firstly, be prepared for an intimidating atmosphere. Fans are optimistic going into this campaign and there’s a high level of expectation after how well we did last season, so our supporters won’t be too jovial with the opposition.

Secondly, take pictures of the occasion. Villa Park is a beautiful stadium that once had an award-winning groundskeeper in charge, so it’s quite a sight in person.

Finally, Villa pride themselves on being an inclusive club that stamps out discrimination in all forms, so report anything if you witness it.

Bournemouth – Vitality Stadium

BOURNEMOUTH, ENGLAND - Sunday, April 17, 2016: A general view of Bournemouth's Dean Court Stadium before the FA Premier League match against Liverpool. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Address: Boscombe, Bournemouth BH7 7BT

Capacity: 11,500

Away Fans’ Pubs: A 10-15 minute walk from the stadium will take you to the Mello Mello bar on Christchurch Road, and further down the road you will find The Bell – the city centre is another option.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: If you’re sat in the lower tier of the away end near the start or end of the season, you may need a hat and sunglasses to block out the beaming sun.


Brentford – Brentford Community Stadium

Address: 166 Lionel Rd N, London, Brentford TW8 9QT

Capacity: 17,250

Away Fans’ Pubs: There are loads of pubs to go to pre-match. Not just the ones a few minutes walk of the stadium.

On we always do a pre-match fans’ pub guide as part of our preview a day or two before the match in which will give a load of pubs to visit in the Brentford, Kew, Ealing and Chiswick area.

The atmosphere in and around Brentford is great on matchday. It’s friendly. There is no segregation and we use the word #manners.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Enjoy yourself when you come down. Most visiting supporters used to love visiting Brentford because it was good craic.

Come to the pub and have a drink, have respect and that respect will be replicated. Go to the game. Enjoy. Go back to the pub win, lose or draw. Have another drink and you’re all good.

Brighton & Hove Albion – AMEX Stadium

Address: Village Way, Brighton BN1 9BL

Capacity: 30,750

Away Fans’ Pubs: Despite being an impressive stadium, many away fans to visit the AMEX stadium feel the location is a downside.

Once you get to Falmer station, your only real option for food and drink is at the ground. Therefore, in terms of pre-match drinking, Brighton town centre is your best option, filled with a wide variety of different pubs to visit.

As you leave the station, pubs such as the Railway Bell are very much Albion pubs. Despite being no real designated away pubs, as you walk down Western Road (leading down from the station) pubs/bars such as Wetherspoons, Walkabout, Yates and many more pubs welcome away fans.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: As previously mentioned, most travelling fans will spend pre-match in the centre of Brighton. Down here we are not blessed with a very competent train service.

Therefore, my main piece of advice would be to allow yourself enough time when travelling from Brighton to Falmer station. The train is only a short 10-minute journey, but the closer you leave to kickoff, the more the queues at Brighton station will build.

If you are driving down, the Bridge car park will probably be your best option in terms of parking close to the stadium, located just a five-minute walk to the ground (walkway leading to the stadium).

A parking ticket can be purchased via the club’s ticket office—£13 in advance or £15 on the day.

Burnley – Turf Moor

Address: 52-56 Harry Potts Way, Burnley BB10 4BX

Capacity: 21,944

Away fans’ pubs: Burnley Cricket Club and The Park View both welcome away supporters and are located just a couple of minutes’ walk from the ground.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Burnley Central and Burnley Manchester Road are both within walking distance of Turf Moor, with the latter usually busier with travelling supporters.

Burnley Cricket Club, as well as welcoming away fans, also offers cheap car parking near the stadium.


Chelsea – Stamford Bridge

LONDON, ENGLAND - Saturday, February 22, 2014: A general view of Chelsea's Stamford Bridge. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Address: Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 1HS

Capacity: 41,663

Away Fans’ Pubs: The Courtfield Tavern next to Earl’s Court tube station is away fan friendly.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Enjoy it – it may not be modern, have a huge capacity or please you aesthetically, but it’s a classic old-style football ground where fans in the front rows are close enough to the pitch to tell an opposition player in their ear that they are fucking shit.

And that, quite frankly, is something we’ve all missed hearing while fans have been absent from stadiums.

Crystal Palace – Selhurst Park

LONDON, ENGLAND - Saturday, October 29, 2016: A general view of Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park ground before the FA Premier League match against Liverpool. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Address: Holmesdale Rd, London SE25 6PU

Capacity: 25,456

Away Fans’ Pubs: The best option for away fans to have a drink without being harassed is to show your ticket at the door in Thornton Heath. There is also either the Wetherspoons directly opposite the station or the Prince George on the way to the ground, which away fans frequently use.

If you go to Selhurst or Norwood Junction you’ll struggle to find a pub that allows away fans in these days.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Check the trains first because Southern rail can be a joke.

Leave early to get here! It’s not the easiest to get to. It’s not London, it’s south London, its own place.

The Wetherspoons is your best bet pub-wise, while Tasty Jerk, a Jamaican chicken restaurant outside the stadium, is fantastic.

And know that if an eight-year-old scores a penalty at half-time he will knee-slide in front of you.

Everton – Goodison Park

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - Sunday, October 4, 2015: A general view of Everton's Goodison Park before the Premier League match against Liverpool, the 225th Merseyside Derby. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)c

Address: Goodison Rd, Liverpool L4 4EL

Capacity: 40,157

One piece of advice for visiting fans: ‘Enjoy’ Goodison while you can. It won’t be around much longer. I know everyone complains about it (even us) but there are so few stadia like it, especially in the Premier League. The last connection to a bygone era.

Fulham – Craven Cottage

Address: Stevenage Rd, London SW6 6HH

Capacity: 29,600

Away Fans’ Pubs: Near to the Putney Bridge tube station is the Eight Bells pub in addition to the Temperance, both are, on average, a 10-15-minute walk to the stadium.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Enjoy the surrounding area overlooking the River Thames if you can.


Luton – Kenilworth Road

Address: 1 Maple Road, Luton LU4 8AW

Capacity: 10,356

Away fans’ pubs: Town centre pubs are generally home fan haunts. The Brickmakers in Hightown, the George II and the White House in particular are home pubs to avoid.

Aside from those, there’s no real guidance and away fans are generally welcome.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Luton station is the nearest stop by train and is situated around a 15-minute walk from the stadium.

Parking is available at the station itself and in various other spots near the ground.


Man City – Etihad Stadium

Address: Ashton New Rd, Manchester M11 3FF

Capacity: 55,097

Away Fans’ Pubs: Around the ground is all City and not really advisable. Piccadilly has loads of ace pubs and only a decent walk/hop-in-taxi away.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Singing ‘Where were you when you were shit’ only prompts rolled eyes and vicarious embarrassment. It’s pure Norwich.

Man United – Old Trafford

Address: Sir Matt Busby Way, Stretford, Manchester M16 0RA

Capacity: 74,140 seats

Away Fans’ Pubs: Hotel Football

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Enjoy Manchester but bring an umbrella, chances are it will be raining!

Newcastle United – St. James’ Park

NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE, ENGLAND - Sunday, April 1, 2012: A general view of St James' Park before the Premiership match between Newcastle United and Liverpool. (Pic by Vegard Grott/Propaganda)

Address: Barrack Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4ST

Capacity: 52,354

Away Fans’ Pubs: There are just loads and loads. I’d say just head to the ground from the station and you’ll pass 20 bars on the way that would cater for away fans (if you take the right route).

Centurion at the station normally has plenty of away fans in. Sam Jacks caters for fan ‘banter’ between fans and strippers—if that’s your thing!

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Make a weekend of it. Remember 12,000 home fans go up and down the same number of stairs you do to get to your seat, and they do it every other week. They don’t moan. So please follow their lead.

Nottingham Forest – City Ground

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND - Sunday, March 20, 2022: A general view before the FA Cup Quarter-Final match between Nottingham Forest FC and Liverpool FC at the City Ground. Liverpool won 1-0. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Address: West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 5FJ

Capacity: 30,445

Away Fans’ Pubs: If travelling in by train, the Olde Trip To Jerusalem, The Castle, Salutation Inn and The Round House offer some character.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Why not make a trip out of it? Nottingham is great city for a night out and has plenty of history to keep you busy.


Sheffield United – Bramhall Lane

Address: Highfield, Sheffield, S2 4SU

Capacity: 32,050

Away fans’ pubs: The Bath Hotel on Victoria Street is a cracking little pub and very welcoming to away fans, just a 25-minute walk to the ground.

The Sheffield Tap at the train station sells good beer and is about the same distance from the ground. I’d avoid the pubs next to the stadium itself, they tend to be rammed and not necessarily welcoming.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: The city centre is a great place for away fans to visit before the game.

Tottenham – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Address: London, N17

Capacity: 62,062

Away fans’ pubs: The Elmhurst is the designated pub for away supporters

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Buy a pint and refuse one of the pre-poured ones at the ground. Make them ‘pour it from the bottom’. It’s magic.


West Ham – London Stadium

LONDON, ENGLAND - Saturday, April 22, 2017: A general view of the London Stadium, home of West Ham United, pictured before the FA Premier League match against Everton. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Address: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London E20 2ST

Capacity: 57,000

Away Fans’ Pubs: There are no designated away pubs in Stratford and fans with away colours are often turned away, so it is best to drink away from that area.

It is a short hop on the Jubilee line to places like Canary Wharf. The ground opens 90 minutes before kick-off and you can drink in the ground.

One piece of advice for visiting fans: Don’t get lost! It is a big area, a big open park and signage is not great—many away fans have got lost and missed kickoff.

Check the map of the area before you get there, here.

Wolves – Molineux

WOLVERHAMPTON, ENGLAND - Tuesday, January 31, 2012: A general view of Molineux, the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers, before the Premiership match against Liverpool. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Address: Waterloo Rd, Wolverhampton WV1 4QR

Capacity: 31,700

Away fans’ pubs: Truth be told, there aren’t many places for away fans to drink in the town centre. The Bluebrick literally behind the station does allow away fans in though, I believe, but is more of a restaurant.

One piece of advice for visiting fan: Rather than trying to drink in Wolverhampton, get the 15-minute train into Birmingham and have a drink there. There’s a much better selection of pubs.
