Sports Venues

People in London (and Britain as a whole) absolutely love their sport. Football is the number one crowd puller, but rugby and cricket are hugely popular, and then, of course, there’s tennis…

Well, you get the idea.

For visitors who’d like to take in a game/match while they’re in town, there’s good news beyond the sheer wealth of athletic talent in town: London has some of the premier sports venues in Europe.
