Old Trafford#2 in Best Things To Do in Manchester
Manchester United is one of the — if not the — world's most celebrated football (aka soccer) teams. The team's stadium is even nicknamed the "Theatre of Dreams." Picture a sea of red shirt-wearing fans spread across an oblong stadium cheering madly for a much-beloved bunch of talented athletes. Even if you don't get to watch the team (and the boisterous crowd) in action, you should make time for a guided tour of the stadium and a roam through its museum. The 80-minute tour takes you everywhere from the locker rooms to the tunnel where the players emerge onto the field and more. A TripAdvisor user (and huge fan of Manchester United) says: "It is well worth going to Old Trafford just to see the home stadium of the most prominent football club in the world."
Ticket prices for watching a football match vary by seat and opponent. You can take a guided tour of the stadium and visit the in-house museum for £18 GBP (about $30 USD). Tours are offered every day from 9:40 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., although times may change on game days.
You'll find the stadium on Sir Matt Busby Way, southwest of the city center. You can take the tram from the city center to Old Trafford Station; the tram station is about half a mile from the stadium. For more information, visit the Old Trafford website.
