Accepts Time Out Card

Lord Foster's reworked Wembley Stadium is an impressively grand setting for many an event, though the schedule has a football weighting, naturally. With a 90,000-seat capacity, it is Europe's second-largest stadium, and its arch (at 317m, longer than a Eurostar train) became an instant landmark back in 2007.

So close to the real matchday experience you can almost smell Rooney's socks, Wembley's 90-minute tours include the chance to see the England team's changing rooms and warm-up areas, walk through the players' tunnel, sit in the dugouts, climb the 107 Trophy Winner's steps and hold an FA Cup replica in the Royal Box.

Exhibits to look out for on the tour include the famous crossbar from the 1966 World Cup Final and the trophy awarded to the '66 team by FIFA to commemorate their win. (The original Jules Rimet World Cup trophy went to Brazil in 1970, where it was stolen and never recovered.)

Until May 2015 the tours will include an exhibition of more than 100 photos of historical moments at the stadium and of the building itself, which have been gathered from Getty Images' archive.
