Under $100 / Europe

Whether you are a Chelsea supporter or just love the beautiful game and historic stadiums, a day in Fulham (West London) makes for a nice stroll and fantastic destination.


When in Rome and all that, so let’s keep it English beginning with a full English breakfast at Local Hero, a cute, independently owned coffee shop with a surprising offering of cheap, big breakfast plates. But again, you’ll want English.

Take some time to stroll the bookshops and record stores scattered between Local Hero and the shrine of Stamford Bridge, home to one of England’s biggest and recently successful (not this year) football clubs.


Once you get peckish and think lunch is in order, head to Stamford Bridge. In addition to the stadium and museum tour, Stamford Bridge hosts Frankie’s Grille and for just £8 pounds more than the stadium tour and museum visit, you can get a nice two-course, fixed menu lunch in the stadium.

Now it’s time to walk the grounds, the stands, the locker rooms and press room. The tour finishes at the museum where more than a century of Chelsea history is on display. Tours leave every 30 minutes after 1 p.m., so go early if you fancy more time in the museum as it closes at 5 p.m.


Now that you’re a Chelsea supporter, it’s time for a few pints and perhaps something more to eat. Head to the The Butcher’s Hook was the Rising Sun when Chelsea was founded on the premises in 1905. A great offering of beers and pub grub awaits at the Hook.

Swissgear 1900 ScanSmart Backpack

Among the myriad concerns the everyday traveler may have when approaching any trip, safety and security are most likely the most important, but protecting yourself from both bodily harm and petty theft can distract you from the real reason for your travel: to escape daily life and immerse yourself in another culture. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in travel accessories that can perform multiple functions, like carrying your gear while also protecting it with state-of-the-art security features.
