Luton Town's stadium has the most unique away end, you have to go through someone's back garden

Kenilworth Road has a reputation for being one of the most unique places to visit in England as an away fan - and thousands more will get the opportunity to visit Luton Town's home in the not-so-distant future.
The Hatters, who picked up 21 wins from a possible 46 during an impressive campaign in the Championship, secured a place in the play-offs for the second year running.
And after beating Sunderland in the semi-finals, Rob Edwards' side earned promotion to the Premier League with a famous win over Coventry on a warm Saturday afternoon at Wembley.
Luton, who last played top flight football in 1992, will now need to make some adjustments to their historic stadium before August 12.
In fact, they will have to spend around £10 million to upgrade the 10,356-capacity Kenilworth Road so it meets Premier League requirements.
Gary Sweet, the club's chief executive, said they would have to "pretty much rebuild" one stand at the 10,356 capacity stadium.
"It is maybe more of a gargantuan task than building a new stadium," he told BBC Radio 4's Today.
"There's rather a lot of work to do. We've got about £8m, maybe £10m of improvements to do which is pretty much rebuilding one stand in less than three months, which is some task.
"It's just really to comply with Premier League's broadcasting requirements and some facility requirements that are needed."
As well as being one of the oldest stadiums in football, the entrance to Luton's Oak Stand is perhaps one of the most unusual.
After going down a small alleyway at the side of the stadium, you get the sense that you're about to walk into someone's house and into their back garden.
Instead, you walk up some stairs and into the away stand, which is packed tightly into the neighbouring residential houses. According to Luton's official website, fans are "guaranteed an exciting and unique matchday experience" regardless of the result.
So what did fans on TripAdvisor have to say about their experience at Kenilworth Road?
One fan wrote: "Must have the most unique entrance to the ground of any club. To enter the away stand you go under a row of terraced houses. Once through you can see residents cooking and watching TV in their own homes. The ground is small but atmospheric."
Another commented: "The area I sat in didn't have backs to the seats and had a pillar blocking part of the pitch. Old fashioned turnstiles and even by football's standards, horrifically pungent toilets. And for all of these reasons, it's also brilliant... an interactive museum of watching football in the 70s."
A third said: "Don't come here expecting it to be like going to the cinema, sat in a nice padded seat. A proper, old-school traditional ground where the fans are right on top of the pitch with a great atmosphere."
