    Man U stadium

    If you travel to Manchester, a sight worth seeing is the Manchester United Stadium, although there have been reports of tourists beeing robbed in this area.

    If taking photographs do not allow anyone to take a picture of you in front of the stadium as some tourists have done so only to find someone else comes up behind them, whips their trousers down and the guy with the camera makes a runner.

    The police have been alerted about this and are patrolling the area, but be on your gaurd.

    Unique Suggestions: Don't allow people to take photographs with your camera.

    Manchester United Football Musuem

    Old Trafford

    Manchester United Football museum charges you £5 to walk around 2 rooms - I dont think so!

    Across the road from the Stadium, if you look down on the pavement, you will notice the names of anyone who has ever played for Manchester United. Also there is a training pitch, so you might get to see Beckham & co practise now and then, if you're lucky.
    You might also notice there is a clock "frozen" in time, with Munich written over it. It's a touching memorial to the Man U players who were killed in a plane crash in Munich back in 1958

    Unique Suggestions: Go when it's not peak season so you can join the full tour of Old Trafford stadium.

    As I went there during the community games, everybody was going out to Old Trafford to look for Alex Ferguson and David Beckham et al.

    Old Trafford - Across The Ship Canal

    Manchester United. If you're visiting it's unlikely you'll get to see them play, but you may be tempted to visit their museum. This is at the Old Trafford ground, and if you're into Manchester United, it may be worth a visit. They ARE the most famous team in the world, after all.
