    I'm about to put Carrow Road in my list and for me it's down to atmosphere. I've been to Ipswich when you've been beating us 3-0 and you barely sing. It's a bigger capacity and that really is about it.

    My list:

    Molineux
    Anfield
    The Den
    Deepdale
    Hillsboro
    Elland Road
    The Stadium of Light
    Villa Park
    Old Trafford
    Carrow Road
    Cardiff City Stadium
    The Britannia
    St. James Park (Jawdies)
    St. Andrews
    Emirates
    Ashton Gate
    White Hart Lane
    The Valley
    Goodison Park
    The City Ground

    Aye Portman Road doesn't really lend itself to an atmosphere. We couldnt hear a peep from anywhere the day we got dicked 6-0..Every time Ive been to Carrow Road its been pretty loud.

    I did, and I liked it. I probably didn't put it in there because we lost and I'm bitter. :laugh:

    It's strange, from the outside you wouldn't have a clue that it's a football ground. Quite unique in that way.

    F*ck it, you've sold it to me, get Bramall Lane in there instead of Hawthorns, 'cus I've never been to West Brom.

    From the back of the away end I can see your reasoning, but behind the Kop and other stands it looks like most other grounds. :thumb

    Best new grounds I have seen are cov, man city & arsenal.

    Best old white hart lane.

    den also good for a small club just a shame fans are not allowed into lower tier.

    Without saying our own I'll have to say my favourite new ground is the KC, Not a dull simple bowl, got stuff going on around it, set in a nice park setting. Shame about the town.

    Anybody recommend some unique grounds to visit in the England that aren't Premier League and are a bit less known?

    I'm coming over next year and I want to go to some games as a neutral in random places.

    Well if you're looking for unique then Fratton Park or Selhurst Park are historic stadia to go to and Fratton Park may not be around for much longer so could be a good one. As for a new stadium, then the AMEX has gained huge credit in its first season and next season there's the possibility of new seats being added and so could be even better.

    I think certain people replying in this thread must have only been to about 25 grounds based on some of these Top 20 lists!

    Pride Park is shiny plastic bowl, in the middle of a business park. Sure, some people like grounds like that, and that's fine.... but when the same people also chose old-fashioned grounds like Oakwell / Hillsborough, then I don't understand what their criteria are!?
