What do you get the ultimate Manchester United fan? A tour of Old Trafford of course! Venture inside this famous stadium and see the medals and awards up close in the award-winning museum, before you head into the player’s dressing rooms, dug out and press room. For special occasions, there are Legend Tours available, where you’ll be shown round by one of the team’s players. Hear the stories from the heroes that were there during the victories and historical moments of the club – it doesn’t get much better than that!
Stretch your legs in nearby Tatton Park, with a 1,000 acre deer park and 50 acres of award winning gardens. Children will love the farm, where they can pet and feed pigs, donkeys, goats and hens. Afterwards, there’s an adventure play area to explore with a maize maze to get lost in and a den building area. The park is also host to many events throughout the year, including the Christmas Shopping Fair and The Wedding Show. If you’re looking to pick up some souvenirs for your trip, then be sure to pop into the Housekeeper’s Store in the stable yard. This gourmet food and drink shop sells bespoke food hampers, local ales and estate-reared meat, including venison.
