Manchester United and Old Trafford Stadium Tour

We set off on Friday morning for Manchester to watch the Manchester United football club play against the Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday at 3pm. The journey up on the M6 and M6 Toll road was quick and simple and we made it in plenty of time to do the Old Trafford Stadium Tour and Museum. Sadly, the Red Cafe was terrible. Bad food and expensive. So was the River restaurant at the Lowry Hotel. However, the football related event was fantastic. Over 70,000 in a packed stadium to watch football is electric. Our seats were in the family section, row 6, block 209 just behind the corner flag. After the match finished it was a slow grind out of Manchester onto the M6 down South. It took the best part of two and a half hours to reach the outskirts of Birmingham where we stopped off for dinner at the Terrace Brasserie at the New Hall Hotel. The food was fine but it was very slow. Not really the speed of a brasserie at all. I wouldn’t want to travel to Manchester to watch football every fortnight but as a one-off, it was a fantastic, quintessentially British experience.
