Courtesy of VisitBritain, here are some top tips for football (by which we mean soccer) fans headed to Old Trafford in Manchester, England, to watch the Olympic games matches...or who just want to explore a burgeoning city with some top-notch attractions!

1.) The National Football Museum
Re-opening this fall, the museum will add more hands-on family-friendly activities with enough objects to fill a soccer field. 

2.) Imperial War Museum North
The Imperial War Museum North’s collections include archives of personal and official documents, photographs, film and video material, and oral history recordings. An extensive library and a large art collection house examples of military vehicles and aircrafts, equipment and other artifacts.

3.) Tour of Manchester United’s Stadium
This fascinating museum and stadium tour of Old Trafford brings visitors closer to the club and its history. Visitors can explore the trophy room and test their football skills inside the interactive Theatre of Dreams.

4.) The Lowry
Set in a waterside location at the heart of the re-developed Salford Quays in greater Manchester, The Lowry brings a wide variety of performing and visual arts together under one roof. 

5.) Curry Mile
Rusholme's "Curry Mile" has the largest concentration of Asian restaurants in the UK and as such provides a destination for over 65,000 diners per week wanting to sample the award-winning Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi cuisine on offer.
