Favourite grounds.

Best /favourite football grounds you have been to.
England traditional?
England modern?
Rest of the UK or Ireland?
Outside the UK?
Prettiest?
Non league?

For me,
England traditional Villa Park
England modern Was Sunderland for years, but nowadays Arsenal
Rest of UK or Ireland Hampden Park, I know it's not the biggest up there, but when the English shut them up at the play off game in '99 (after they were all demented during the(ir) national anthem it was amazing Wink
Outside the UK Stadium of Light, Lisbon until the last couple of minutes of the France game Wink
Prettiest Lichtenstein
Non league I would love to say Redditch, but that's a dump, Worcester was always a good traditional one but that's gone, so Boston.

Sad to say I haven't been to any other ground apart from Villa Park, I'm hoping to get a few away games under my belt in the near future. Also this is good thread as I'm interested in everyone's opinions on the various grounds.

Always liked Goodison Park, proper old fashioned place. I hate new grounds, they feel soulless and devoid of atmosphere in comparison to older ones. St James' is always good, but that might be down to the Newcastle nightlife as much as the ground!!!

I like Goodison, but the away now it's on the side is shit, you can't see anything from the back, and I once twisted my ankle really bad there!!!!

Never liked Maine Road but that was probably the city fans mainly. The Baseball Ground was a bit primitive,if you sat down your eye line was level with the pitch and kept being told to sit down but you couldn't see what was happening the other end!

Traditional - used to love visiting roker park - those open ends in the biting wind off the North Sea were quite something.
Foreign- stade de France
New- quite like the emirates.
Non league - nuneaton
