Manchester United Our Old Trafford Tour
While we were in England another thing we ticked off our list was an Old Trafford Tour, the theatre of dreams. It certainly was a fantastic place with all the history in and around the stadium.
We’re not Manchester United fans ourselves but we have a lot of family members who are. So we decided a long time ago that when we are in Manchester we will go on the Old Trafford Tour, if only to take photos for family and friends. As it might be the only chance we will get while here in the UK.
The tour prices range from £18 for adults and £12 for juniors.

You can book your tickets here
Its best to book your time slot for the day even though there is a tour with guide every 30 minutes they are booked up sometimes weeks in advance.
Tip: Try booking the tour through a second party like Virgin we did and saved 20 percent per person, saves to shop around.
I know what you’re thinking that the pitch is not very green. That’s what we were thinking also then our tour guide told us that after every season they re-grow all the grass at a costing of near 1 million pounds. Sounds like a lot but when your paying some players around £300,000.00 per week it’s not really that much.
The tour takes approximately 1 hour 10 minutes. Starts at the end of the museum and finishes at the entrance of the merchandise store “coincidence I think not”
You can take as many photos as you like during the Old Trafford tour. Just be pretty quick because you don’t have much time as the tour guides are hushing you along quite quickly.
Old Trafford tour & Museum
In addition to the stadium tour and after you’ve wandered around the museum, Taken your selfies with all the silverware. They have a cool restaurant where you can relax and have a cold drink and a meal. All the seats have the players names on new and old be sure to pick out your favourite.
One way to get there is to catch the train to Deansgate, Walk over the bridge to the metro link, from here catch the link down to Trafford. Old Trafford cricket ground is on the left, keep walking straight following the signs for 10 minutes and you will be there “you can’t miss it”
