- Twickenham (London)
- Gift Voucher valid for 2 Participants
Take a tour for two of Twickenham Stadium, and learn all about
the history of both the iconic rugby ground and the England rugby
team. This tour is led by a very knowledgeable guide and will give
you a great sense of what goes on behind the scenes on big match
Twickenham stadium is a fantastic rugby venue that was, once upon a time, nothing more than a simple cabbage patch! Bought by the RFU in 1907, it has since developed into the world class stadium with a capacity of 82,000 people that is there today. Some of England's greatest sporting triumphs have been won on this ground, and with this guided tour of the stadium and visit to the new look World Rugby Museum, you'll get the chance to re-live some of rugby's most incredible moments.
During the Twickenham tour, you'll get to visit the England dressing room, where some of your sporting heroes have prepared before the games of their lives, and celebrated afterwards. You will see the stadium's medical rooms, the Royal Box and the hospitality suites. Your guide will even take you through the players tunnel to pitch side - try to picture the 82,000 seats that surround you full of screaming supporters, and imagine the roar as the players run out of the tunnel for the Rugby World Cup final in 2015! Once the guided tour has ended, you are free to explore the World Rugby Museum, and follow the history of the game from its origins in Rugby School to the present day. Discover just why people love rugby, from the grassroots game to the elite sport, and get the lesser known stories behind some of the greatest players, matches and tries in Ruby history - with a little humour thrown in!
If you're a rugby fan who wants the ultimate rugby experience, or you're looking for a gift for a rugby-mad loved one, you can't go wrong with this tour of Twickenham Stadium and World Rugby Museum visit.

Wow what a fantastic Stadium tour! Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and definitely knew a lot about the stadium and the game.
Clive was a really good guide, informative, flexible, excellent at interacting with the group and enthusiastic about his role. He was both keen & determined that we enjoyed our experience - which my wife and I most certainly did. Thanks.
With the echo of “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” ringing through our ears, Leoni and I hopped off at Twickenham train station to take part in our latest staff review and I’m sure you can guess what it is – a Twickenham Stadium Tour for two. After a quick 10 minute walk from the station to the stadium, Leoni and I headed to the Rugby Store where the tour starts.
As the largest stadium in the world which is purely devoted to Rugby, Leoni and I knew we were going to be in for a treat seeing the behind the scenes actions of such an iconic sporting venue – and hopefully spot a rugby player or two! We were warmly welcomed by our tour guide and set off to start the tour. The first stop was into the Rugby Internationals Club where ex-players can enjoy their own bar and seating area for match days. Across the walls there is many pictures of different rugby matches from the old days when the Twickenham pitch would have been full of mud and thick across the rugby players faces, a lot different to the pristine pitch now as informed by our tour guide!
Next up, we visited some of the Royal Boxes and enjoyed sitting in their premium seats at the top of the stadium. These boxes are slightly out of our price range… but we can dream! We then moved on to seeing the different hospitality suites including the Presidents Suite where royalty like to relax and dine before a big game. Our tour guide continued to take us round and share fun facts with us about the sport, players and the history of the stadium.
Our next stop was what we all had been waiting for; the dressing rooms and the players’ tunnel. Now would have been the perfect time for one of the rugby stars to pop up! In the dressing room, you can see the different designated space for each player and the previous players who have been there before them. I took a quick picture of George Ford’s seat and sent it to my friend who is an avid fan, might have something to do with his blue eyes I reckon. We also saw the medical and old fashioned bathing areas where the players can tend to their sore muscles after the game. We then left the changing rooms and headed through the Players’ Tunnel pretending we were about to walk out to a full 85,000 capacity Twickenham Stadium, chanting our names. Our tour finished by going pitch-side and checking out the immaculate pitch right from its sidelines.
Unfortunately, when we visited (in March 2017) Twickenham World Rugby Museum was closed due to refurbishments but this is definitely something you’d need to check out once you are there. If you’re visiting before the Museum opens again in May 2017, you’re entitled to go back and visit again for free, so you can relive the experience all over again! Thank you so much to Twickenham Rugby Tours for inviting us along to take part in the experience, we had a fab time.
