Old Trafford for me, although I've been in the unfinished Wembley. Don't suppose that counts...

old trafford before they filled the quadrants in..i'm not that keen on it now cos the quadrants don't look right,they hump up in the middle or atleast it looks like it does and spoils the lines of the stadium imo...

ye i can not believe they did not think about the corners before they built all the top tiers at different gradients. i quite enjoyed turf moor too, burnleys ground as it was so....basic the away stand is a shed and the seats are wooden. dont get that often!

Lords, walking distance from central London, Edwardian architecture, Futuristic architecture, the centre of World Cricket.

I don't like cricket though.

The Oval was good. My favourate ground is Old Trafford Cricket ground just because it's a good place to relax (lots of space).

Re football grounds, I've been to Vale Park and Gresty Road and the Stadiums where Middlesborough and Crystal Palace play, I thought they were all OK. The best that I have been to though is Villa Park.

How do you define "best"? The grounds I liked the most are probably in this order:

1. Twickenham
2. Trent Bridge
3. Wembley Stadium (as it was in 1992).
4. Millennium Stadium
5. Villa Park
6. City Ground, Nottingham
7. Headingley
8. Recreation Ground, Bath (as it was in 1991).
9. Twerton Park
10. Manor Ground

...although the order would probably be different if you'd asked me the same question yesterday.

The biggest and best I've been to is the Millenium Stadium. But I can't wait for Wembley and would love a trip to Old Trafford, emirates, COM etc.

West Ham's Boleyn Ground is good on three sides. I liked Millwall's New Den and Swansea's Liberty Stadium. Reading, Sheff Wed were good days out.

Worst - Brighton. As an away fan paying over £20 for a makeshift stand with no leg room or bum room and no cover is a joke. And they beat us at the Mill Stad...

Best Cricket - Oval
Tennis - Court one
Rugby - Rec and Mem

Re Stourbridgebaggie: we have wooden seats in some parts of the home stands at Bristol City - classy, not!

The old Cardiff Arm's Park was fantastic, if it counts. The best is probably Villa Park, with old trafford/emierites currently 3rd & 4th, I'd put fortress Twickenham 2nd, it is great from the inside (but a bit grey from the outside).

Anfield. The place oozes passion and identity.

Other than that the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff. Hardly state of the art but a great basic design for a football/rugby stadium that builds and holds the atmosphere.

I didn't really like Old Trafford. I went on the tour and not to a match so maybe that is the reason. The only good thing was the front facade imo.

Millennium stadium is certainly the best I have been to, but it needs ceilings! Somebody build some ceilings for it! It looks a mess inside!
