My dream at 12 years old was to visit Old Trafford: The Theatre of Dreams. It happened on 28th March 2016 (was then 21 y/o), enjoying the countryside of England from the little window of the virgin train as we traveled to Manchester from London (around 4 hrs travel time).
Once we’ve passed the security check and got our badges, we visited the museum while waiting for the tour guide to arrive. Medals, shields, and history of players and the club are beautifully displayed in the museum. There is also a little shop where you can buy souvenirs. (I got a teddy bear upon purchases worth £20 – a big one)
Current ticket price for the tour: £18
The tour guide and his assistant came shortly after. We visited the VIP lounge, players’ dressing room, the cafeteria, tunnel, reporters’ corner, where the manager and opponent team sit, the Megastore, press room etc…
I definitely recommend you all to take the guided tour. It is a really great & valuable experience to be cherished by all Manchester United’s fans. The guides will make you feel as if you are one of the players especially the moment when they make you walk out to the stadium via the players’ tunnel. You learn a lot more about the team, things you probably didn’t know earlier. In the end, you get a free certificate for visiting the Old Trafford. This was one of the most priceless moments of my life.
This was a quick post about my visit to Old Trafford. I was supposed to write about the experience long long ago. Sorry for the bad picture quality.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post, thank you for dropping by.
