This can be a collaborative submit or commercial.

I’ve shared beforehand that Ben is a large soccer fan and he loves stadium excursions. We’ve been on the Wembley tour, Liverpool tour, Newcastle tour and Manchester United tour beforehand so after we had been supplied the prospect to overview the West Ham Legends tour with Purchase a Reward, I knew he would adore it.

The distinction between a West Ham tour and the Legends tour

There are just a few totally different choices obtainable for a stadium tour on the London Stadium, the house of West Ham United. We did the Legends tour with Tony Gale.

While we’ve got not accomplished the usual West Ham tour we’ve got accomplished excursions at different stadiums and skim concerning the distinction and mentioned it with the employees so I feel I may give you a good description of the variations.

A regular stadium tour entails being taken across the stadium by a member of the stadium employees. All areas are coated from hospitality to the pitch aspect and together with the dressing rooms, media areas and dugouts. Basically an excellent tour of every thing there’s to see on the stadium.

A Legends tour covers the very same areas of the stadium so you don’t see something further. The distinction is {that a} West Ham legend, somebody who used to play for West Ham, reveals you round with the tour information.

The legend tells you tales and experiences on the way in which across the tour and provides you their opinions on areas as a participant. For instance, whether or not the format of the dressing room is sweet for crew talks and the way the managers they performed below talked to them to inspire them. This is stuffed with anecdotes and tales {that a} common member of stadium employees simply can’t share in the identical means.

The tour with the legend additionally features a signed picture of you with the legend (one per group) and extra photographs might be purchased. They’re taken throughout the tour in entrance of a inexperienced display screen and signed in entrance of you. I’ve not used the bought photographs on this overview on account of copyright however the photographs had been nice!

Who was the Legend?

We had a tour with Tony Gale, in all probability one of the vital well-known 1980’s West Ham gamers. He performed as a defender for West Ham between 1984 and 1994 and made 300 league appearances for them.

He’s now a commentator for them so he was capable of give us loads of tales of the way it was taking part in for West Ham in addition to his experiences as a commentator.

Tony Gale was pleasant and approachable and I might positively advocate selecting a tour with him. I’m positive the opposite legends obtainable are simply nearly as good however we didn’t expertise them so I cannot touch upon how they strategy excursions.

Ben’s views

Ben is a large soccer fan and while he isn’t particularly a West Ham fan he totally loved the tour and assembly Tony Gale.

All through the tour Ben discovered various things to get pleasure from and far to my shock, having been on numerous soccer stadium excursions with him, he cherished each minute of it.

The tour group consisted of round 30 folks altogether. Ben, on account of his autism, can discover huge teams tough to deal with however he discovered this group an ideal dimension. There was a combination of younger and older folks and never all had been huge hammers followers.

I’m not a soccer fan so happening these soccer stadium excursions with Ben generally is a little uninteresting. In any case, seeing the dressing rooms for various groups are basically the identical however with totally different shirts so it means nothing to me in any respect!

The West Ham Legends tour was very totally different we had predominantly Tony Gale speaking to us as he confirmed us round in addition to the tour information Steve. I totally loved it because it was a lot greater than “right here is the dressing room the place ….. motivates his crew, be happy to take as many photographs as you want”.

I cherished listening to all of the anecdotes and tales in all places on the tour. I realised that being a soccer commentator is far tougher than I had imagined. Between Steve and Tony, it was each an informative tour in addition to enjoyable and gratifying for soccer followers in addition to folks like me!

I can actually say that I actually loved the tour and was impressed at how pleasant and interactive it was compared to different excursions I’ve been on. If you’re debating whether or not to go together with a soccer fan on a stadium tour then I extremely advocate this one.

Price of the Legends tour

We had been gifted the tour from Buyagift in return for reviewing it for you nonetheless the tickets are often £90 for 2 if purchased via Buyagift.

The legends tour is dearer than the usual tour however in my view very value it and an ideal reward for a West Ham fan for Christmas or a birthday.

If purchased via the stadium straight they’re the identical worth however in case you are new to Buyagift you may get an introductory supply! So, because of this, I might positively advocate going via Buyagift!

I’ve beforehand discovered for tickets for different locations like The Shard might be cheaper when purchased straight from Buyagift so do bear in mind to test when reserving something like this.

Suggestions in your go to

I might extremely advocate in case you are driving to park within the Westfield, Stratford Purchasing centre and make sure you spend just a little time there too. There are many eateries and outlets to peruse while within the space and the automotive park appeared fairly safe too. The stroll from the automotive to the stadium was round 5-10 minutes relying on strolling velocity.

Arrive in loads of time earlier than the tour as it’s going to begin on time and also you don’t need to miss it. The tour is booked downstairs within the store outdoors the stadium and the group is collected from there to enter the stadium. On this space, there’s a cafe and bogs so there actually isn’t any hurt in arriving early and having a drink first.

There’s time on the legends tour so that you can have an merchandise or two signed by the Legend himself so if in case you have one thing you’ll like to be signed make sure you take it with you. It doesn’t must be a shirt, it might merely be a e-book like this.

For those who go on the Tony Gale tour there’s nothing particularly with him on within the reward store so it would should be one thing generic for West Ham or purchase one thing beforehand.

After the tour, in case you are searching for someplace to eat then Westfield, Stratford is ideal as there are many eating places however I might advocate reserving prematurely. We had booked prematurely however seen an enormous queue of individuals ready for tables!
