Here are 7 of the top football experiences available to you in Great Britain.

  1. Tour Wembley Stadium

From its beginning in 1923, Wembley Stadium has been home to some remarkable moments in the history of football, including England’s world cup win in 1966. More recently, Wembley hosted 8 fixtures at UEFA Euro 2020, including England’s first final since 1966 vs Italy.

The stadium itself offers regular tours alongside exclusive VIP tours, matchday tour experiences and educational visits. It also boasts a range of bars, hot dogs and famous ‘Wicks Manor’ sausages – find accommodation near Shepherds Bush to make it into a weekend trip and have time to truly experience everything. You’ll be sure to make lasting memories here, no matter your age.

With over 150 football stadiums in Britain, the choice is yours when it comes to watching a live game. Swing by the Champions League Stadiums of Etihad or Stamford Bridge or take your pick of the Premier League Stadiums.

  1. Visit the National Football Museum in Manchester

Britain is extremely lucky to be host to the world’s biggest football museum. Open seven days a week, the National Football Museum celebrates the many different aspects of football as both a game and as an influence on our culture as a whole. There are hundreds of different ways to experience the museum, from taking part in interactive challenges to viewing extraordinary exhibitions and football memorabilia over four incredibly designed floors.
