Stamford Bridge, the home ground of Chelsea F.C., is a place where the magic happens. Chelsea is one of the world’s largest and most successful football clubs. Chelsea’s high-tech museum opened in June 2011 and is now the largest football museum in London, with all manner of interactive gadgetry, games and videos to inform and entertain as well as memorabilia collected across the club’s 107-year history.
The Stamford Bridge Stadium tour is an absolute must for any true blue. The fully guided tour will take you around the dressing rooms, pitch side and dugouts, players’ tunnel, television and press room.
The tour lasts about an hour and includes stops at the museum and Megastore. Aside from the basic tour, Chelsea F.C. operate platinum tours and group packages for the passionate fan. Retrace the steps of all the legendary Chelsea players past and present like Zola, Drogba, Diego Costa. Look out for the statue of the King of Stamford Bridge, Peter Osgood. Look out for Stamford and Bridget the lion mascots. And don’t forget to check out all of Chelsea’s trophies.
Not such a fan of The Blues? KidRated also has reviews of the Emirates Stadium and Anfield.
I did enjoy this tour as a sports fan but I’d probably enjoy it more at a slightly younger age so I’d say for teenagers, they’d have to be a pretty big fan to truly enjoy this experience.
Overall, it was pretty cool to see the behind the scenes and the shop had some good stuff – bit expensive though so make sure save up if you want to get some good stuff at the end.
