With a capacity of 90,000 seats, Wembley Stadium is the largest sports and music venue in the UK and the second largest football stadium in Europe. It was opened in 2007 on the same site as the original Empire Stadium which saw momentous events such as the 1948 Olympic Games and the 1966 World Cup Final.
The Wembley Stadium Tour takes you to places you normally only see on television: sit in Roy Hodgson’s hot seat in the press conference room, visit the home dressing room where England prepare for the upcoming game, feel the tension standing in the players tunnel before emerging on to the pitch, and feel the thrill of victory as you climb the steps to the Royal Box to accept the FA Cup.
Other highlights include visiting the VIP Club Wembley middle tier to get panoramic views of the stadium, The History Tour in which you can see, among the many exhibits, the original Olympic flag and torch from the 1948 games, and the infamous crossbar from the 1966 World Cup final, along with the Jules Rimet Trophy lifted by Bobby Moore.
This year the FA celebrates its 150th year. As part of the tour you get to see memorabilia collected over those years with the special FA150 exhibition; so many memories. As part of the exhibition you will see the original FA Cup, the FA Charity Shield and the original minute book from the inaugural meeting way back in 1872. A true piece of football history that is not to be missed.
