Although known by most people as Upton Park, the ground is actually called the Boleyn Ground. Although it has been redeveloped in that time, the ground has been home to the Hammers since 1905. The stands are set back from the pitch but it doesn’t prevent the atmosphere from being anything short of electric for the big games.
It’s not easy or cheap being a West Ham fan. Tickets are in four price bands and the different colours show where they are. Band 1 are most expensive with an adult ticket costing £47. Non-member concessionary tickets for that band are £26.50 while member tickets are £23.50. In the next band an adult ticket is £43, £24.50 for non-member concessions and £21.50 for membered concessions. In band 3 adult tickets are £2 cheaper with the rest being £1 less and in band 4 adults pay £32, non-members concessions are £19 and members pay £16
Tickets can be bought online or via phone on: 0871 112 2700.
GETTING TO Upton Park
Getting to London is simple but from their it is best to get the tube rather than a bus. West Ham tube takes you nowhere near the ground so the best stop to get off at is Upton Park on the District, Hammersmith and City lines, leaving just a short walk to the stadium.
For the sat nav: Green St, Upton Park, London, E13 9AZ
It is very restricted around the ground and even the most optimistic people won’t bother trying it. There are some places to park to the left off Barking Road. There’s parking available at Newham General Hospital costing £2 for three hours and £4 for six hours.

Where to drink
Away fans are designated to the Central on Barking Road. The coaches pull up not far from it and fans are encouraged into there for a reasonably priced drink. For home fans there’s always Denmark Arms near East Ham Town Hall that shows all the live games.
Where to Eat
Nobody can come to the East End without tucking into a bit of Pie & Mash. There are plenty around but the favourite is Duncan’s Pie N Mash, just to the right of the tube station. Expect a queue but it flows very quickly.
Where to Stay
For a unique experience stay at the West Ham United hotel. It is set in the grounds of the stadium it receives consistently good reviews and gives you no chance of getting lost on the way there after the match.
