Stamford Bridge is located rather centrally in London in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The stadium lies slightly less than 2 miles south-west of Hyde Park and the Harrods Store, and less than 3 miles south-west of Buckingham Palace.
The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway, which is on the District Line. One can get to Fulham Broadway by taking a Wimbledon-bound train from Earl’s Court station, which is on the Circle and Piccadilly Line. Earl’s Court station itself is also within walking distance of the stadium (20 minutes).
Alternatively, one can reach Stamford Bridge by London Overground. Both West Brompton and Imperial Wharf stations are a 15-minute walk away from the stadium.
Various buses pass the stadium on Fulham Road, which includes line 14 (from Euston Square to Putney), line 211 (from Waterloo Station to Hammersmith), and line 414 (from Maida Vale to Putney Bridge).
Other lines that pass in the vicinity of the stadium are bus 11 (from Liverpool Street Station), 28 (Kensal Rise), 296 (Ladbroke Grove and Clapham Junction), and 391 (Richmond).
Chelsea does not recommend arriving by car on matchdays as no parking is available. On non-matchdays limited paid parking is available underneath the stadium.
