Best time to go:
Running from August to May, the Premier League is bookended by the UK summer, which means you can catch the football action during any of the four seasons, each of which offers a unique travel experience. If it is a specific match you want to watch live, the just-released Premier League fixtures will dictate your travel plans. Of course, you can always choose among our tailor-made Premier League packages, which give you one-click access to the action.
No matter which match you want to catch live, the three biggest international airports in England are all in close proximity to the major Premier League clubs. London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports are both a train’s journey away from the centre of London, while Manchester, the other major international airport in England, is not far from Liverpool, Birmingham (home to Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion) and other cities where football has its roots.
Where to go
Of the 20 teams in the Premier League, six of them are in London. Fulham and Chelsea are two tube stops apart from one another, while Tottenham and Arsenal, two top clubs who share a bitter rivalry, are within a couple miles of each other. And with a capacity of over 60,000 the Emirates Stadium is currently the largest football ground in London (and famously only five minutes away from a pub or cafe).
When you’re not watching your favourite teams go head-to-head on the pitch, explore London’s iconic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Enjoy panoramic views of the South Bank cultural complex from the London Eye, across the Thames River.
Explore the city’s many royal sites, including Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. London’s museums and galleries; from the British Museum and National Gallery to the Tate Britain and Tate Modern, could keep you busy for days. Watch classic and cutting-edge theatre productions on the West End, dine out and shop in Covent Garden, Soho and Spitalfields Market, or picnic in Trafalgar Square, Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath.
Top Travel Tip:
Before you go, make a list of the stadiums you’d like to tour. Many of the soccer clubs offer behind-the-scenes tours of their stadiums. Some clubs feature museums too, such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.
