#1 of 13 in Things to do in Stretford
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.

    To get to the great stadium is most conveniently by train, right next door there is a special stop. There is everything including the Museum. And what to say, Glory Glory Man United!

    This original stadium has been extended to the current size, easy to access, some parts are older style with narrow stairs etc. to get to the seats. Away end was good not to high and very good sight l...  more »

    Did the cruise and Stadium tour with my fellow United fan Son. We both felt that the barge cruise was a different way to approach the ground, but was a little long winded. It was much better going bac...  more »

    You can't get better than a tour of Manchester United Football ⚽ Club and the museum. Ample parking and a great store. All staff are very professional and customer centric. A Great Day Out For The Family 👪

    The amazing Theater of Dreams. The playground of Manchester United football team. It great experience if you are a fan of the club or just the game. You'll see a lot of backstage, dressing rooms, press lounge and the players entrance. Totally worth the visit. If you lucky you'll be guided by Dave S. So enjoy your time.

    On match days the security is top notch. They check you when you arrive in your cars that you have nothing in them. They also frisk you before you go in the stadium. There is plenty of things around for food outside the stadium. Inside they do offer meal deals which are really good. The red cafe is really good as well for families the staff are v friendly and looked after us when he took our nephew for something to eat. Also the tour is very good to go on is definitely worth doing. It's one for all football fans as you can look at all the trophies and you get a gd look around the stadium.

    Well, it's the home of the famous Manchester United! Security was tight, which was reassuring, but didn't really slow down our entry to the ground. Just get there a little early. Don't take a bag! Food is pretty pricey, of course. Views of the pitch are amazing from most areas, to be honest. There is a bit of a squeeze to get out, as 76000 people are leaving at the same time. Mega store massively busy on match days and there is the same security to get in there, too.

    Did the Legends stadium tour and lunch with tour guide and legend Dennis Erwin. Welcome coffee and biscuits, full tour of the stadium including the museum, trophy room. Excellent lunch and finished with a question and answer session. Came away with a really nice goody bag. Well worth the money.
