We are three German lads interested in English Football, so we decided to visit Griffin Park on our recent trip to London. I am a Eintracht Frankfurt supporter, whilst my two friends support Borussia Dortmund.

Why visit Griffin Park and not Stamford Bridge or another Premier League Ground, you may ask? Well, we are traditionalists and like the old school football.
We arrived by tube at South Ealing, then following then the advice on this site to took a bus to the ground. Although one of us insisted on walking and it was not too easy to convince him not to do so!
Before the game we had a few beers in the New Inn , great atmosphere with friendly home supporters who could not believe that we came over from Germany to watch the Bees. Afterwards I bought some Bees' merchandise in the club shop.
Griffin Park is a nice old fashioned ground , but that's what we like in these days when football is getting more and more commercial.
The game itself was not so thrilling. Stewards very relaxed , toilets not too great. The pies were wonderful, they went well with Carling Lager.
After the game we did not leave the area immediately , but visited the other three pubs around the ground instead.In the Griffin we met again our new friends from the New Inn.
All in all a great day , and one thing is for sure , we will come back very soon!
