Hurlingham ParkIn the good old days, Hurlingham Park was used for regular football and rugby matches as well as athletics events. Located next to the swanky Hurlingham Club in a leafy riverside location in Fulham, Hurlingham Park once had a seated capacity of around 2,500 people until the stands were torn down in 2002. Fulham FC are thought to have played here back in the late 19th century when the side was still a boy's church team. In September 1954, the site became a public park on the same day as the opening meeting of the athletics track, originally made of cinder. The huge track, which has a rare 200m straight alongside where the grandstand used to be (now there is just a substantial pavilion), was last used for a race in 1979. The infield is still used for rugby and football games - it is the home of Hammersmith and Fulham Rugby Football Club - and in recent years, the field has been used once again for polo, hosting the annual Polo in the Park competition in June. Monty Python fans may recognise Hurlingham Park from the famous sketch "The 127th Upper Class Twit of the Year", which was filmed here back in 1969. A visit to Polo in the Park sees that tradition carry on to the day... albeit unintentionally.
