Old Trafford, Stretford

Arena / Stadium · Tourist Spot
Manchester United, one of the most popular soccer clubs in the world, makes its home at Old Trafford stadium. Constructed in 1920 with a capacity of almost 80,000, the stadium holds the title of second largest soccer stadium in England. While match tickets can be quite expensive, booking online in advance will help ensure the best price. To get a sense of the history of Old Trafford and a look behind the scenes at otherwise off-limit areas, like the players’ changing rooms, take a stadium tour and visit the state-of-the-art interactive museum. Due to the club's fame, book your tour in advance. For an extra-special experience, take a "Unique Tour," where you cruise to the stadium on a canal barge before taking part in the regular stadium tour. Stop by the megastore before leaving to pick up a jersey and other team souvenirs.

  • It worth to visit once you are in Manchester to pay the tribute to this iconic building called The Old Trafford  more »
  • Great grounds, amazing atmosphere when matches are on they are great with the kids and do fun activities with them :)  more »
  • Surprised my partner with a stadium and museum tour, he absolutely loved it. Good tour with interesting information. Only downside was the media device didn't work in conjunction with the tour. Worth the money for any fan.
  • Home to one of the most successful clubs in England - Manchester United, Old Trafford is one of the biggest stadiums in England with a near 76000 capacity. Watching a football match here should definitely be on your check list. Even if you are not a football fan, you should definitely check out the Museum and Stadium Tour to get a feel of the iconic stadium. The tickets prices are decently priced for a guided stadium tour. To reach here, you can either come via road (which can be expensive) or via tram (which is cheaper and easily available from the city center). The tram drops you at Old Trafford Cricket Ground which is barely a kilometer away from the football stadium. There are good places to eat and bars around the stadium.
