Wembley Stadium is a 90,000-seater football stadium in north-west London. It is the largest stadium in the UK, the second largest in Europe, and opened in 2007, replacing the old stadium. 

Wembley hosts the FA Cup Final, the England national football team, and other big football matches like the UEFA League.

Be sure to look out for the bronze statue of Bobby Moore at the stadium entrance, which commemorates England’s 1966 World Cup win. The stadium is located about 30 minutes from central London by tube or car.

As well as sports events, the stadium has also staged music performances from renowned artists such as Oasis, U2 and Coldplay.

Aside from the matches played here, you can tour the inside of the stadium year-round, except on Wembley event days. 

Experience the awesome behind-the-scenes feel and action as your tour guide leads you to the changing rooms, the press conference room, the VIP club for a spectacular panorama of the stadium, the royal box, the exhibitions, and the stadium store. 

A VIP tour option is also available. Tours last 75 minutes and depart hourly from 10:00 to 15:00 and are priced at £19 per adult, £11 per child (under 16), with concessions paying £11. A family ticket is £45.
