As summer starts to roll around, the football season starts to wind down, which might be good news for those of you who aren’t that fussed about Britain’s favourite past time, but bad news for those that don’t know what to do with themselves now. So, for those of you who want to spend your summer continuing your love for the beautiful game, here are some ideas of where to go.

There are loads of way to experience the joys of the premier league even when matches aren’t happening. Many of Britain’s top football clubs and stadiums offer tours that allow you to walk around the field, tour the changing rooms and even walk down the team’s tunnel. CAN YOU IMAGINE?

Well, we thought we’d give you the low down of some of the stadiums you can tour and also let you know where you can find what else is going on in the area. You know, just in case not everyone in your party is that fussed about going around a stadium.

London stadiums

There are a lot of stadiums in London and the majority of them offer tours in some capacity, so here are just a few…

London Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

This was previously the home of the Olympics when it came to the UK in 2012, now it’s the home ground of West Ham United. Located in Stratford, right next to the Westfield Shopping Centre, there are plenty of things to do around the stadium as well as an abundance of different tour packages to keep the West Ham fans among you entertained. Ex-players can also be booked as guides!

Emirates Stadium

The tour of Arsenal’s home ground includes free entry to the interactive Arsenal Museum, which has a number of exhibits including the Premier League Trophy and a number of kits from popular players.

Stamford Bridge

A tour of Chelsea FC’s home ground will include knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides, as well as the chance to learn more about the club and the stadium’s past. The tour also includes access to areas that are normally only reserved for the players and the officials.

We’re worried there might be a riot depending on which team we put first… At the risk of being wrong we’ll start with…

Old Trafford

Visit all the usually off limits parts of the stadium and get to chat to guides about your favourite moments throughout the club’s history. Your ticket will also grant you entry into the Old Trafford Museum where you will get to delve into the heritage of this famous club.

Etihad Stadium

Man City fans will love the chance to get a picture while sat in the manager’s chair during this tour which takes in everything from the conference rooms, warm up areas, dressing rooms, player’s tunnel and more.

See what else is on in Manchester here. Don’t forget while you’re in town to drop into the National Football Museum which has pretty much everything football fans could ever want to see.

Of course, there are a number of other stadiums offering tours all across the country including Anfield where Liverpool play. Check in with your team to see what options they have for tours of their grounds.
