The Chelsea Football Stadium tour is obviously great if you're a Chelsea fan but it's not that bad if you're not even a footie fan (like myself). The tour guide was fairly entertaining and had a lovely demeanour. Having done quite a few tours I'd say the content of the tour wasn't as good as some of the bigger stadiums in the uk, such as Wembley but you do get to see all of the critical elements of the stadium and the fans seemed to be loving it. You visit the stands, the press area and the away and home changing rooms. It lasted about an hour but I felt that it could have been a bit more informative.
Luckily the tour cost includes a visit to the museum and this museum is really well done. As well as various trophies and Chelsea FC memorabilia there is also a chance to have a go at scoring a goal, plenty of interactive displays and some computer games you can have a go at. As I said I'm not a football fan but I thought this museum was really well done and stylishly displayed. Chelsea done good.
