Ep 6 - George Best’s Belfast & the world’s top football stadiums
Football special! We celebrate the Beautiful Game in this episode with a tour of George Best's childhood home, now open as a short-term holiday let in Belfast. Tour guide Peter McCabe tells us about the house where George kicked his first ball before we settle down for the night in the boyhood bedroom of the World's Greatest Footballer.* We thoroughly recommend this unique visitor attraction for both tours and overnight stays (details of how to book it, below).
Then we discuss the world's top 5 football stadiums to visit before you die, from the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia (which also hosts football matches, fact fans) via the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City; Wembley in London and Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain.
