Twickenham Stadium is the home of English rugby. The venue began life as a cabbage patch before the RFU purchased the land for £5,500 in 1907. Seating up to 82,000 spectators, it’s the second biggest stadium in England, the fifth-biggest in Europe, and is the largest rugby union venue in the world!
It’s much more than just a place to watch men get muddy though – with stadium tours, the World Rugby Museum, the Rugby Store, it’s become a hub of entertainment for the whole family. It’s also a great venue for gigs, having hosted everyone from Lady Gaga to The Rolling Stones.
Keen fans can join the Junior Supporters Club for mascot opportunities and the chance to train on the Twickenham pitch.
Be sure to check the website for a full list of what’s on, such as the annual Stinger, where rugby is an accompaniment to a great day out with entertainment on and off the pitch.
