Here's one for the Arsenal fans... how about a tour of the Emirates Stadium?
There are two tours to choose from: a self-guidd tour with audio-visual handsets (narrated by Bob Wilson), and a special 'Legends Tour' in the company of one of Arsenal's old players. Whichever one you pick you'll be able to go behind the scenes for a sit-down in the player's changing room, nose around the Director's Box, and listen to the roar of the crowd as you walk down the tunnel and out onto the pitch.
The self-guided tours are great, but the 'Legends Tour' are unforgettable. Because not only will they show you all of the sights, they'll also tell you some stories from their playing days, share some news from the inner sanctum, and reveal their thoughts about the current team!
The current list of 'Legends' giving tours are: Charlie George, Perry Groves and Nigel Winterburn (subject to change).
All tours include a visit to the Arsenal Museum afterwards.
Feel free to ask questions about Arsenal Tour on the forum.
If you enjoy this then you might also enjoy the Wembley Stadium tour. You might even like the Chelsea tour (but not if you're a die-hard Arsenal fan, obviously!). Or how about seeing some Sunday morning football on Hackney Marshes?
grahamp – “I'll always have a soft spot for Highbury because of the time I spent there, and the good memories I have of the place, but Emirates is a worthy stadium for the mighty Arsenal. What an amazing place. It is like a little city inside and once you get out into your seat for the first time you will take a little breath, because this is the best stadium in the Premier League, without a doubt. Ive done the tour as well and because im an arsenal fan i thought it was great. Its a self-guided one and you get a headset and then you go off at your own pace, which is great. Most tours are done by guides and they can be rubbish, depending on how good your guide is. But with this one you can really take your time and see the bits you want to see without having to walk along with a crowd. You get to go in the changing rooms which is great, and step out onto the pitch They do a legends tour as well where you DO have a guide -- but this time the guide is a famous player from Arsenals past. I have no”
