Tour Wembley Stadium

Sat under a large arch in North West London, Wembley has been the home of football since the original stadium was built in 1923.

The original stadium was, apparently, built in exactly 300 days and finished three days before the 1923 FA Cup final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. Whilst that stadium cost £750,000 to build, the new Wembley Stadium cost £798 million and was delivered ten months late. It was due to open in May 2006 but the new stadium was not completed and handed over to the FA until 9 March 2007.

Tours of the stadium are a little expensive at £15, and run daily from 10am - 4.30pm, except on major event days. The 90 minute tour, includes visits to the England changing rooms and the Royal Box.
