“Great value tour of a great stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Whether you are a Manchester Untied fan or not, there's one admission you must make - United have, through various means, made themselves one of the most successful, accessible, and recognisable clubs in the world.

With this comes history, a hell of a lot of it in fact. And on this tour, you get a real sense of the history of the club, its beginnings, and where it is today.

The tour is all-encompassing, including a complete tour of the stadium (which, regardless of your football affiliation, is incredibly impressive just an on engineering sense), a tour of the Man Utd trophy cabinets (which is extensive), and opportunities to have your pictures taken with various trophies (mine was with the FA Cup, or at least a replica of).

It caters for young and old, with plenty of hard facts, player stats, and various other pieces of trivia, and softer information for children.

And then there's the ground itself - from sitting in the chairs of Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton, to visiting the commentary box, to going into the dressing rooms and seeing the shirts hanging, the tour really gives you a sense of what goes on behind what you see on television.

With that insight in mind, it may please you or disgust you. Mine was the latter because, once you analyse it, it's disgusting how a venue and the associated club can be worth/claim so much money.

But, at the same time, I would say it is eye-opening. I've been twice on this tour, with different guides, and both were interesting in their own ways. For a ticket (which I think cost £6) I really do not think you could ask for anything more.

Fan or not, give it a go.

“Ask Polly Johnson.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Our Grandson Tom and his friend Robert came to visit us from South Carolina USA.Although our family are die hard West Bromwich Albion fans ,we thought it would be a treat to take a tour of The museum and stadium. Arriving at the Stadium after a short taxi ride from Piccadilly station,first thing was photographs.Man U through the ages is demonstrated around the ground along with the statues of legends and lastly Sir Alex Ferguson.Collected our pre-booked tickets and into the museum.Make sure you allow enough time to view the museum before the allocated spot to tour the ground and pitch.This is why Polly Johnson is a treasure,not only did she help us to change our time for the tour,but also pointed out that we should also visit the National football museum also,which was short journey away.Polly gave us detailed instructions how to get there.Back to the tour,visit the dressing rooms,sit in the seat where Sir Alex sits and walk down the tunnel to the pitch.Lastly take a minute in The Munich Tunnel to think of everyone who lost their life in 1958.This attraction is on par with a tour of the Nou Camp,Well done Man Utd.However from a Baggies fan once again THANK YOU POLLY JOHNSON!
