The Theatre of Dreams

I think from my previous entry, some of you must have guessed that we would not miss visiting THAT one place in Manchester.  Yeah, I am talking about THAT one place.  Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams.

Old Trafford is just nearby to Salford Quays.  We can even see the stadium from the Lowry.

We walked there from Salford Quays, crossing the Lowry footbridge.  As we got nearer, the stadium got bigger.

There were some stalls selling fan stuffs outside the stadium that day because there was going to be a match that evening; Man United against Spurs.

And then we were there, right in front of the stadium.  Never had we thought in our wildest dreams that we would one day be standing here, right outside the Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams.  It was truly like a dream come true.

We also visited the megastore, selling all sorts of merchandise bearing the Man United name and logo, as well as jerseys.  The things there are super expensive.  No wonder they are making millions out of merchandise sales.

Even though we could not do a stadium tour that day because of the home match against Spurs, we were equally as excited to be there.  We will return again for the stadium tour soon.  After all, it is only one hour drive away.
