Tour of Wembley Stadium

Wembley’s famous arch

On a sunny afternoon just before the Easter weekend, The Boy Child and I hopped on a bus heading up to the home of English football, Wembley Stadium, to go on the tour. (Long-time readers may well recall that we first visited for the Ladies FA Cup in May 2017.)

To say that The Boy Child was in his element would be an understatement! Our guide delivered the perfect mix of fact with humour and we even learned a few things along the way. For instance, the Wembley arch actually has a purpose, it’s not just a showy gimmick … it carries the weight of the stadium roof, because there are no load-bearing upright pillars to take the strain inside. That way, no-one inside the stadium has an obscured view of the pitch.

As you can see, The Boy Child gave a thumbs-up to everything …

In the stands

I don’t think you need to be a die-hard football fan to enjoy the tour. It lasts around 90 minutes and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby for a post-tour debrief.

We visited the Camp Nou in Barcelona in August 2017 and Anfield in October 2014.
