A selection of the must-visit football stadium tours in the UK

British football and its selection of stadiums up and down the country is something to be proud of. In nearly every town and city there is a football team's home. Some stadiums have been standing for centuries, while others are on the way out with new proposals and developments on the horizon. These football houses are second homes for most fans and provide numerous moments that will live long in the memories of most supporters.

For some people, especially any keen ground-hoppers among us, the appeal of visiting football stadiums and embarking on a variety of stadium tours appeals. These types of tours can provide an insight into an area, enable a fan to get a feel for the life of a footballer, entertain any moaning children, and even supply the experience of a lifetime to a foreign visitor who is yet to explore a particular stadium.

Football stadium tours have been around for a while, too, as fanatics have always wanted to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the UK's most iconic sporting venues. Some of the bigger clubs will always be a preference for supporters. 888 sport, which also runs an expert prediction site for punters throughout the Premier League season, cites Manchester City as the clear favourites to retain the title this campaign at 4/6. That alone highlights the great strides the club is making and with a global audience to boot too. Visiting fans are not just wanting to visit Old Trafford but also the home of England's best and most formidable side at the moment.
