England is filled with some of the most iconic football grounds in the world. With so many for football tourists to choose from, here are the 5 best English football grounds to watch a game inside.

5. Emirates

Arsenal's Emirates Stadium opened in July 2006 replacing the club's historic Highbury. Although supporters missed the old football ground initially, an entire generation of Gooners have grown up with Arsenal calling the Emirates home. It is now ubiquitous with the club. Over 60,000 supporters can view a match at the Emirates which is over 21,000 more than at Highbury.

4. St. James' Park

Newcastle United's St. James' Park may not immediately come to mind when considering the best grounds in England, but there are few better. The stadium holds over 52,000 fans on matchday and an incredible atmosphere is created when the black and white play. Newcastle United are an institution on Tyneside and matches are typically sold out when the Magpies play at home.

In 1998, the stadium was expanded to give us the gorgeous glass and steel venue we now have. There are plans to expand St. James' Park further to accommodate around 70,000 supporters on matchday.

3. Old Trafford

Manchester United's Old Trafford is a legendary ground that has seen some of the biggest matches ever played on English soil. Old Trafford is the third-largest sports stadium in the United Kingdom as over 75,000 fans can watch football when the Red Devils take to the pitch. Although the atmosphere has declined due to the results in recent seasons, Old Trafford is still a must for football tourists.

2. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is England's newest top-flight venue to watch football. It is a cathedral dedicated to Tottenham Hotspur and their fans. It was always going to be difficult to replace the legendary White Hart Lane, but Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has done just that and more.

The football ground can accommodate over 62,000 supporters and is truly a venue that represents one of Europe's top clubs. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was built with NFL football in mind as well. The ground has hosted NFL games and could one day be home to a franchise in London.

1. Anfield

Since Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool in October 2010, the ownership group has worked diligently to bring the club into the 21st century. Part of their work has been investing into Anfield and making it a football ground that is worthy of the club's history.

FSG continues to improve the ground and has proposed to expand the Anfield Road end. It would allow even more fans into England's top football ground. The atmosphere within Anfield is the best in the country thanks to rabid supporters urging the Reds onto victory. Even with a new main stand, the stadium has retained its feel of the supporters being on top of the players.
