British Football’s Greatest Grounds



Have you ever wanted to visit the most scenic, historic or important football grounds in Britain, but weren’t sure where to start or what to include?

In British Football’s Greatest Grounds, Mike Bayly provides a bucket list of places to watch football in England, Wales and Scotland as chosen by fans across the world.
This first-of-its-kind book introduces the reader to a diverse and often breathtaking range of Britain’s football venues.

In addition to the oldest, biggest and highest our nation has to offer, it covers lesser-known grounds nestling next to castles, beaches, churches and mountain ranges, as well as modern Premier League stadiums in major cities.

Featuring beautiful images taken by acclaimed sports photographers, along with written contributions from respected industry figures, British Football’s Greatest Grounds is part guide, part love letter to the history, people and places that showcase the best of our unique football landscape.
