London's premier stadium and sporting arena for over 90 years, this home of English football was built in 1923, and became the site that saw the World Cup victory of 1966. In 2007 it underwent a £750 million renovation. Still located on the original site, the stadium now offers visitors a chance to revel in the incredible atmosphere of the second largest stadium in Europe, with its 90,000 seats.
