Whether you’re into golf, rugby, football or tennis, Britain has something to appeal to every sport fantatic. Wimbledon is the oldest and arguably most prestigious tennis tournament in the world and tickets are in high demand, so if you’re interested make sure you enter the ballot! If you do manage to score yourself a ticket, make sure you dress nicely and don’t get star struck by the famous spectators which will more than likely include the Queen herself.
For all the golfers out there, we’ve got something you to tick off your bucket list! The Old Course at St Andrews in Scotland is one of the oldest golf clubs in the world, established way back in 1552. A game costs between £57.50 and £120 depending on the time of the year and has an adjoining hotel and spa if you want to make a weekend of it (or need to organise something for a partner to do while you’re tearing it up on the greens).
If you’re more of a football fan you’ll know that Britain is the home of the ‘beautiful game’. Catch the national team at their home ground for an unforgettable experience, or see a Premier League game and have a slightly scary realisation that these truly are diehard fans! Get to know the history of your favourite team through a stadium tour or visit the National Football Museum in Manchester.
Don’t worry rugby fans, Britain has something for you too. We all know that the All Blacks are the best team in the world but there’s no harm in visiting the opposition to get an idea of what to expect next year, right? Millennium Stadium in Cardiff has hosted our boys eight times and is the home of the Wales national rugby team. It holds almost 75,000 people and is open for tours on weekends if there are no games on. If you’re staying in England then you can’t miss Twickenham, a paradise for any rugby lover. There’s a rugby museum, stadium tours and of course games to watch, so get your teammates together and explore England’s home of rugby.
