Twickenham Stadium Tour & World Rugby Museum

Visit the Home of England Rugby on these Twickenham stadium tours! The very first match held on this famous site was in 1909 and it was a local derby between Harlequins and Richmond. Since then the stadium at Twickenham has grown to be the largest venue dedicated to rugby in the world – and it makes for an impressive tour with free access to the World Rugby Museum included too. Visits to the stadium are guided by hosts who are passionate about rugby and highly knowledgeable about Twickenham through the ages too. Your tour will see you visiting ‘back stage’ areas that are normally closed to the public. You’ll find yourself going through doors that are most definitely out of bounds for most of us on match days so you can have a really good nosey. Imagine what the pre-match build-up must be like in the player dressing rooms or what it’d be like watching the game from the Royal Box or one of the hospitality suites. This is all truly the stuff of great rugby stadium tours! The highlight of this Twickenham stadium tour has to be running down the player’s tunnel just like hundreds of rugby internationals have done at the start of a game. The atmosphere the tension the apprehension and expectation as the crowd is singing and the team runs out onto the pitch. Then you follow in their studded footsteps and take a pitch side walk to get close to that finely manicured turf that has seen more International tries penalties and drop kicks than any other pitch. In the new World Rugby Museum follow the history of the game from its origins in Rugby School to the present day. Explore a glittering array of trophies including the Calcutta Cup made from 270 silver rupees; take up the challenge of discovering €œWhat Kind of Rugby Player Are You?€ in the Play Rugby Zone and re-live some of rugby’s most memorable moments with film and video footage
