London for football fans: Chelsea FC players' guide to the capital

Follow in the agile footsteps of Chelsea FC's top players to discover London's top attractions and neighbourhoods like a football fan.

Every corner, nook, and cranny of London is rich in history, from major events to colourful local stories. Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea FC ever since the club was formed above a pub in 1905, is no exception. As the only stadium the Blues—originally nicknamed the Pensioners—has ever known, the SW6 landmark has witnessed tears, tantrums, and many shining moments.

And, of course, anyone privileged to don Chelsea FC’s iconic blue strip will also be lucky enough to call London home, whether born and bred in the capital, or getting to know it for the first time.

Three of Chelsea FC’s star players share with us their favourite places and things to do in London, from spending time in the stadium to picnicking in Hyde Park.
