Part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, there are London Stadium tours daily whereby visitors learn about the full London Olympic stadium experience as well as how the former Olympic stadium has been transformed into a soccer stadium.

2. Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum and Tour

Game, set and match – any tennis fan will ‘love’ this Wimbledon tennis tour at the home of lawn tennis. It will likely ‘serve’ as an ‘ace’ lasting memory.

A short walk from Wimbledon Village, this sleepy suburb becomes a world stage for the famous Wimbledon Lawn tennis Tournament held every July.

As well as seeing all the classic trophies and the hallowed centre court during a Wimbledon Museum tour, you’ll also encounter John McEnroe’s ghost (we aren’t making this up!), meander the media centre and do a VR tour to put you right in the tennis action.

The dates for the 2024 Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships have been confirmed as Monday 1st July 2024 to Sunday 14th July 2024.

If your Wimbledon tennis stadium visit doesn’t coincide with the annual tennis championship or you can’t get Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Tournament tickets (quite likely – you have to enter a ticket ballot months before), you can still visit the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum and do a 90 minute tour of the grounds.

As well as seeing all the classic trophies and the hallowed centre court during a Wimbledon Museum tour, you’ll also encounter John McEnroe’s ghost (we aren’t making this up!), meander the media centre and do a VR tour to put you right in the tennis action.

3. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Tour

One of two north London stadium tours, Tottenham Hotspur’s ground is one of the newest London football stadiums in the Premier League (along with recently promoted Brentford).

Tottenham Hotspur stadium tours are available seven days a week (booking in advance is recommended) plus Tottenham Hotspur has one of the best club football shops we’ve ever been to (suitably, Tottenham Hotspur merchandise sells like hot cakes)!

We enjoyed our Tottenham Hotspur stadium tour which went behind the scenes and into the dressing rooms as well as getting up close to the hallowed Tottenham turf.

Other highlights of the Tottenham Hotspur stadium tour include seeing Europe’s largest bar, courtesy of Beavertown (a top north London brewery).

Plus a walk around the changing rooms for both the Tottenham Hotspur players and the NFL league, who play several of their overseas games here in the UK every year.

4. The Dare Skywalk and Edge at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

A new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium attraction with real ‘altitude’, dare you do the skywalk at the Hotspurs ground, almost 50 metres in height overlooking the hallowed turf and with incredible views of the capital and Tottenham!

You also get to walk around a huge model of the club motif, a giant cockerel (pretty unique as London attractions go!).

Opened in 2021, it is obviously fun to watch people edge along if you are walking past the stadium on Tottenham High Road.

Also, if you hear a scream as you walk past, it is likely someone taking part in the other new adrenalin rush activity that is The Edge, the UK’s first controlled descent, that sees you plummet off the side of the stadium.

At the end, if you want to raise a glass to your epic experience or immense bravery / foolishness (delete as appropriate), you can also enjoy a Beavertown craft beer or glass of prosecco on the viewing platform – cheers!
