Welcome to Wembley! The stadium is a Great British institution, with a sporting history dating back to the 1920s. Opened in 1923 by King George V for a two-year-long exhibition (to promote trade throughout the Empire), the stadium was named the British Empire Exhibition Stadium. It was the first ever stadium in the world to be deemed the ‘Hallowed Turf’.

It closed its gates in 2000 – being demolished and rebuilt – opening as Wembley Stadium in 2003. It cost £798m and seats 90 000 people who come for big matches and concerts of a lifetime.

A great day out

Today, you can take a 75-minute Wembley Tour (free for the under 5s, £9 for seniors and kids and £16 for adults – or £41 for a family), paying a visit to the England changing rooms, the players tunnel, and climbing the 107-trophy-winner steps, among other highlights. It’s open all year round and available seven days a week – book here

You can also now be a part of Wembley Way having your own engraved stone installed in the stadium. The likes of Chris Eubank, Geoff Hurst and Vinny Jones have all done it, and who doesn’t love Vinny Jones?
