    Going for the first time on Saturday and really looking forward to it as its a ground I've always fancied visiting. Going with a non-wolves fan mate I'm visiting in London so I'd like to know about Tube stations and where to take advantage of the late kick off with a few beers.

    Any advice thankfully accepted!

    Sheperd's Bush Tube - Ground 5 mins down the road.
    Millions of pubs all around that area. Very safe in my experience. Area's a $$$$ hole!

    Well the first question to ask is where or what direction are you coming from as there are a number of tube lines that go to QPR's vicinity. Be aware that, for example, you can get alot of buses to Shepherds Bush from the likes of Hammersmith and Paddington too - you don't have to rely on the tube. There are lots of bars and pubs around Shepherds Bush so I would just go for a bit of a wonder around the Green and see where it takes you.

    Do not go to the Springbok, it's appalling.

    Loads of pubs around Shepherd's Bush/White City, of varying quality.

    Thanks for all the advice, I like the sound of the pavilion, cheers LW. Im travelling from the south east of the city (Canada Water to be precise)

    But it seems to have a traditional/original vibe to it, unlike lets say St. Mary's, Pride Park, the Riverside to mention just three...

    If you like awful sightlines, go in the lower tier and experience a game from the perspective of sitting on the floor.

    If you like not seeing the goal nearest you, go in the upper tier.

    Crap grounds like Loftus Road shouldn't be romanticised just because the majority of new stadia are identikit and sterile.

    It's awful. The Sellotape Stand is aptly named.

    In the bottom five grounds in this league, comfortably.

    I'm attempting to take solace in the fact that in the last couple of seasons I've had a great view at Scunthorpe & Blackpool (albeit in a temporary stand and horrendous weather at the latter) You never know the luck might continue!
     
  13. Best of luck Fetish, I'll be there with no expectations of a good view....I've never had a good one yet1

    Cry definitely fella.

    At £30 for a crap view it's certainly no laughting matter. Been the past 3 or 4 years and only reason I did was because I hate to miss Wolves matches. Would've gone this season (regardless of it being on Sky) if it hadn't been an evening KO. Just crap arranging travel/stop-over.

    Change at Bond Street and go to White City seems best to me?

    Subbuteo Stadium is one of the worst in the country the views are awful. Haven't been since Fulham in the PL can't imagine they've done anything to improve the experience??

    I've been to QPR a number of times as it's just off the end of the M40 / A40, a horrible little ground, we always play them this time of year so it's usually freezing too. Pubs are generally quite friendly near there, but the one on the corner of the green and Wood lane has a downstairs with the Ex-Chelsea QPR fans supporters club in it, a bit dicey. Easy to get to though. I wish Iw as going but got to be in Oxford thursday, Brum Friday, and Wolves Saturday night so not enough time for the traveling.

    Shout some abuse at the guy in the Sombrebo for me.
