Our Top 5 sporting venues of England.


All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, London

Known for hosting the Wimbledon Championships, this club — whose patron is Queen Elizabeth II — contributes most of its fiscal surplus to the development of tennis in England (approx. $47 million per year). Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam tennis event still played on grass.


O2 Arena, London

Just seven years young, this arena is an intimate, 20, 000-seat environment which holds a multitude of concerts and sporting events. Famous for hosting some of the London 2012 Olympics, the O2 Arena hosts the Premier League Darts Championship, the ATP World Tour Finals and more.


Silverstone Circuit, Silverstone, Northamptonshire

The fastest drivers in the world come to Silverstone, which has hosted Formula 1’s British Grand Prix since 1948. The 5.89-kilometer track showcases the best racing talent the world has to offer in Formula 1, Superbikes and touring cars.


Old Trafford, Trafford, Greater Manchester

Home to one of the most popular soccer teams in the world, Manchester United, Old Trafford is a piece of sports history that seats more than 75, 000. Nicknamed the Theater of Dreams, Old Trafford also hosts the rugby league’s Super League Grand Final each year.


Wembley, London

Awe-inspiring Wembley stadium is the focus of English sports and seats up to 90, 000 fans. Traditionally the host of the Football Association Cup final each year, the NFL began playing regular season games at Wembley in 2007, and the amount of American football played there is growing. Boxing joined the party in 2014, setting a post-war British attendance record for boxing at 80, 000.
