Theatre of Dreams: Explore Old Trafford's history with an audio walking tour


Select Option


This tour takes you into the heart and home of Manchester United. It's one of the most prestigious, respected and feared teams in world football. 13 Premier League titles, 12 FA Cups and three-time champions of Europe.

Your guide is Mark Read, who was born and brought up in Swinton, Salford. He now lives in Stretford, about a 25-minute walk away from the ground. As a supporter of Manchester United for over 30 years, he has borne witness to the success of the greatest football manager to grace the ‘beautiful game’, Sir Alex Ferguson. And of course, the dribbling ability and loyalty of Ryan Giggs, as well as the imperious nature of ‘the king’, Eric Cantona.

On this dramatic tour, you'll start the walk like many United fans before, from the pub up towards the stadium or the ‘Theatre of Dreams’, you'll experience the history of the club, explore the ground and finally step into the Class of 92’s newly built Hotel Football.
