All the logistical stuff
Stadium tours are typically pretty pricey, however, you can follow in the footsteps of Chelsea FC legends for as little as £15.00 with Kidadl - just hop on the app and kick things off! And be wary of the fact that you end up in the Chelsea FC Megastore because we all know things can get a little pricey in there! You should also aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before your tour starts but why not make a day out of it and head for some breakfast beforehand - everyone knows every good football player fuels their day with a proper meal!
