The Ultimate Guide to Visiting the Twickenham Stadium

Twickenham stadium ultimate guide.

Twickenham Stadium is more than just a place to watch a rugby match. It’s one of the most famous rugby tourist attractions in the world, the largest rugby union venue on the planet, and, most importantly, the official home of England Rugby.

Not only do 82,000 spectators head to the stadium to watch a riveting rugby match on match days, now rugby fans can take a tour around the stadium, visit the World Rugby Museum, shop at the England Rugby Store, and even watch some of the biggest names in music perform a live music concert inside the stadium as well.

The origins of Twickenham Stadium can be dated all the way back to 1907, when the land was purchased by the RFU for just over £5,500; and in 1909 the first rugby match was held at the stadium.

In 1996 The Museum of Rugby was officially opened to the public; (although it was later renamed the World Rugby Museum in 2007), and the museum alone attracts over 25,000 visitors each year.

Twickenham Stadium Highlights

On match days, Twickenham Stadium comes to life as thousands of rugby fans head to the stadium to watch an exciting game of rugby. But besides watching a rugby match at one of the most famous rugby stadiums in the world, visitors can embark on a tour around the stadium and visit the World Rugby Museum (stadium tours not available on event days).

The World Rugby Museum, which is located in the South Stand of Twickenham Stadium, houses over 41,000 rugby-related objects as well as various galleries and exhibitions and shouldn’t be missed by any hardcore rugby fan.

Visitors venturing on a Twickenham Stadium Tour can get a fascinating “behind the scenes” look at some of the many areas of the stadium, including the Players’ Tunnel, England Changing Room and the Royal Box.

Twickenham Stadium Tour Review With Photos

Twickenham stadium tour review – what to see with pictures.

Twickenham Stadium is the home of the England Rugby Union team.  Reasons to take a Twickenham stadium tour include;

  • Visit the World Rugby Museum
  • See the home of the England rugby team
  • Largest dedicated rugby union stadium in the world
  • 82,000 capacity
  • 4th largest stadium in Europe
  • See the famous Twickenham Gates
  • Sit where Prince Harry sits

I was staying at South Point Suites in central London.  From here I took the train from London Waterloo directly to Twickenham station.  It’s a 15 minute walk from Twickenham station to the stadium.  I booked my Twickenham stadium and museum tour online in advance.

Twickenham Rugby Stadium Address

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - rugby stadium address

Twickenham is a peaceful town and a suburb of London.  Parking in Twickenham isn’t plentiful therefore it’s much better to arrive by train.  Twickenham station is a 15 minute walk from the stadium.  You can take a direct train from London Waterloo to Twickenham station.

Twickenham Stadium Tour Meeting Point

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - meeting point - England Rugby Store

The meeting point for the Twickenham stadium tour is in the England Rugby Store.  This is your first opportunity to buy some England merchandise to pose in during your stadium tour.  If you’re from a different country they also sell other teams but you should be posing in the England merchandise here!  If you arrive early you should check in for you tour as your ticket gives you a discount in the Marriot Hotel next door.  I arrived around 30 minutes early and enjoyed a quick browse of the store as well as a coffee from the Marriot.

Rose and Poppy Gates

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Rose and Poppy Gates

The Rose and Poppy Gates are an important part of the history of rugby.  They commemorate all the rugby players lost to war around the world.  In fact 7 of the grand slam winning England team of 1914 were killed during World War I.  The guide will explain the importance of the gate during the tour.  As the gate is outside the stadium you can always come back to view it after the tour.

Twickenham Rugby Stadium

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - rugby stadium facts

Twickenham rugby stadium has a capacity of 82,000, as a result it’s the second largest stadium in the UK after Wembley.  It’s also the 4th largest stadium in Europe, Camp Nou in Barcelona the largest.  The land was purchased in 1907 and it’s rumored the land used to be a cabbage patch.  For this reason, the nickname of the stadium today remains, the cabbage patch.  During the tour however, you’ll discover the land was used to grow apples, not cabbages.  The 1991 and 2015 World Cup finals were held at Twickenham.  Twickenham stadium also hosts pop concerts with legends the Rolling Stones being the first to play here in 2003.

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Royal Box

The best view of the stadium is of course from the royal box.  Regular visitors to the royal box are Prince William as well as Prince Harry.  If you do visit Twickenham to watch a match, there’s a good chance they’ll be in attendance.  Normally you’ll need an invite from the royal family to sit in this box but on the Twickenham stadium tour you’re welcome to sit and pose for as many pictures as you want.  In addition to visiting the royal box, you can also see their lush dining area and bar.

President Suite and Ghost Painting

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Presidential Suite - The ghost in the painting

As you would expect, the President’s Suite at Twickenham rugby stadium is very lavish.  However, there is something in the President’s suite more impressive than the luxury suite itself.  The most important rugby painting in the world, ‘The Roses Match’ is of Yorkshire playing Lancashire in 1893.  Interestingly, the painting was not completed until 2 years later in 1895.  There is a player who has been painted out of the picture, as a result he has been named a ghost player.  There are several interesting theories as to why this player was painted out, the stadium tour guide will go through these with you.

Can you see the ghost player?

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Presidential Suite - The ghost in the painting

The painting was lost for years but rediscovered in a second hand shop in 1957.  It was bought by Otley rugby club for around £25 and they displayed it there.  In the 60’s the kind people of Yorkshire donated the painting to the Rugby Union and it arrived at Twickenham.  Today it’s estimated the painting is worth over £5 million.  Seeing this historic painting is one of the highlights of the Twickenham tour.

England Dressing Rooms

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - England Dressing Rooms

The England dressing rooms are huge and consist of state of the art facilities in several rooms.  For this reason, you’ll visit the away team dressing rooms first!  In addition, the England team receive royal visits so they dressing rooms also feature furnishings fit for a king.

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - England dressing rooms

The England team dressing rooms are huge in comparison to the away team dressing rooms.  In fact, many of the facilities available in the home dressing rooms are missing from the away dressing rooms.  It’s very interesting to see the huge home advantages and the guide will be happy to point them out!

Away Team Dressing Rooms

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Away team dressing room

At first glance, the away team dressing room seems pleasant but there are a few interesting details.  Can you see the England flags?  The England flag is a red cross on a white background.  This is visible on the connection of each cubicle.  The floor is also uneven, as a result the players will be thinking is this floor flat?  instead of preparing their strategy!

Players Tunnel

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Players tunnel

As part of the Twickenham stadium tour, you can walk through the players tunnel.  I expect kids will particularly enjoy this part!  The away team will be further reminded they are in the home of English rugby with the huge flags on each side.  That’s before they reach the pitch full of loud cheers for the home team.

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - Pitch Side at Twickenham Rugby Stadium

For most, the highlight of the Twickenham stadium tour is to stand pitch side.  Of course, you’re unable to stand on the pitch as this must be kept in pristine condition for the next rugby match.  The good news is that you can stand in the dugouts and you’re welcome to pose for pictures where the managers and players sit.  These pictures will look excellent on Instagram, even more so if you’re dressed up in England merchandise!

World Rugby Museum

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - World Rugby Museum

The World Rugby museum gives an in depth view into the history of both English and worldwide rugby.  Something I especially liked about the museum is you can take a leaflet at the start which points out the most significant pieces in the museum.  For many visiting the museum, to see the Rugby World cup will be the highlight.  Although you can’t hold it, you can take your picture alongside its glass case.

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - World Rugby Museum

Once you’ve taken the stadium tour, you can spend as long as you wish in the World Rugby Museum.  I would recommend taking the stadium tour in the morning therefore you can relax and fully enjoy the museum afterwards.  Inside there are historic shirts, important rugby balls and rugby items you probably never imagined could exist!

How to get to Twickenham from Central London

Twickenham Stadium Tour review with pictures - How to get to Twickenham from Central London

I recommend you take a train from London Waterloo station to Twickenham.  These trains are fast as they stop at only 1-2 stations along the way, in fact there are often direct trains to Twickenham from London Waterloo.  You can use your Oyster card / debit card on this route, just like the underground.  Twickenham is in the travelcard zone 5.

How long does it take to walk from Twickenham station to the stadium?

When you exit the stadium, follow the signs to Twickenham stadium.  It is a 10-15 minute walk through a residential area.  At some point you can stop following the signs as you’ll be able to see the huge stadium.  When you return to the station, follow the signs to Twickenham station.

Enjoy your Twickenham Stadium Tour

Even if you’re a rugby know it all, you’ll still learn a lot by taking the Twickenham stadium tour!  For those who are from the Instagram generation, I recommend arriving a little early so you can buy a little merchandise to pose for your photos in.  Importantly, the best way to arrive at the station is by train through Twickenham station.  Don’t forget to book the  Twickenham stadium and museum tour online in advance.

Take the Arsenal stadium tour as well as visit 32 London landmarks .

  • 582karlq 0 contributions A 'must visit' whether you are a fan, player, supporter or follower of rugby or not. A fantastic visitor attraction that will provide interest and a great day out for young and old, whether you are a fan, player, supporter or follower of rugby or not. It houses an extensive collection of different artefacts and photographs about all aspects of the sport, its origins, history and continued development across the world, along with some hands-on displays and challenges in a dedicated interactive zone. There is also a regular programme of special exhibitions to look out for, the latest of which on William Webb Ellis is expertly crafted together and presented. Plus the tour of what is the largest rugby union stadium in the world is equally as excellent and informative. A visit here comes highly recommended. Read more Written September 8, 2023
  • NCM 0 contributions Could and should be so much better The kids loved it - especially the changing rooms and being pitch side - but compared to stadium tours and museums else where this just doesn't cut it. The tour itself is very limited. It's great to see the changing room but beyond that you don't get shown much. The guide was weak - both in terms of knowledge and jokes - and his delivery was poor. The museum itself contained lots of memorabilia but it's poorly displayed and hard to follow. A shame. Read more Written March 28, 2023

  • DonnaWashington 0 contributions The sporting ethos is exemplary underpinned by some great fascinating objects Early in the day I had taken the stadium tour and then went around the museum. I'm not not a follower of the egg shaped ball but from a sporting and sports psychology point of view rugby is exemplary and hence the visit. It's a great treasure trove naturally with some superb items on display and of historic significance. I found lots of great material re the ethos of the game, camaraderie, team work, behavior and principles. Very cool to see the first rule book of the game and the size of it! A well put together collection with up to date modern displays however I found the flow hard to get to grips with and hence left feeling I may have missed parts of it even though I did pick up the highlight leaflet. Worth a visit perhaps on a rainy day and combining it with the tour is a must and visa versa. Perhaps the tours should end here and with the guide giving a bit of an intro? Oh one more tip is that opening times and especially dates/times for the tours are rather limited so requires some forward planning. Read more Written February 12, 2019

RFU targets Twickenham revamp in 2027 after rejecting Wembley switch

Buying 50% share in wembley was considered but focus will now shift to uk£663m overhaul of current home..

  • RFU made no formal approach to the FA
  • Essential works on Twickenham could be completed for around UK£300m

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) is aiming to begin renovations of Twickenham Stadium in 2027 after rejecting a proposal to make Wembley Stadium the new home of English rugby union.

Buying a 50 per cent share in Wembley from the Football Association (FA) was considered by the RFU’s board in March last year before the idea was discounted without a formal approach to the FA being made.

‘The RFU is focussed on continuing to develop Twickenham,’ an RFU statement read.

‘Previous considerations looking at the viability of moving to alternative sites have been rejected. We do not anticipate major stadium works starting before 2027.’

British and Irish Lions expect ‘commercially sustainable’ women’s tour in 2027

A 69-page document titled ‘Twickenham Stadium Masterplan Programme’, elements of which have been published in the media, outlines a UK£663 million (US$839 million) revamp of the ground that has been England’s home since it was built in 1909.

The report states that a renovation of that size is unaffordable but essential works could be completed for a cost in the region of UK£300 million (US$380 million), which would still require a loan.

Beginning the overhaul between the 2027 and 2028 Six Nations would minimise disruption due to the absence of an autumn schedule at Twickenham in a World Cup year.

‘Our long-term masterplan for Twickenham is being developed to ensure England’s national rugby stadium stays up to date, is compliant with all relevant regulations, provides the best possible experiences for fans and continues to generate revenue for reinvestment into the community and professional game,’ the RFU statement said.

‘Work will be undertaken over the next 12 months to consider next stage designs and assess what interventions might take place and when within the existing stadium footprint over the next ten years.

‘The RFU board has not agreed any new re-development plans. However, as you would expect all options will be thoroughly considered as part of a long-term strategy.

‘As plans are further developed, the RFU board and council will be fully consulted and engaged in the due diligence and approval process, this would include any potential funding sources.

‘As per the RFU constitution, if borrowing of over UK£150 million was needed, council members’ views and approval would be required.’

Moscow Metro

The Moscow Metro Tour is included in most guided tours’ itineraries. Opened in 1935, under Stalin’s regime, the metro was not only meant to solve transport problems, but also was hailed as “a people’s palace”. Every station you will see during your Moscow metro tour looks like a palace room. There are bright paintings, mosaics, stained glass, bronze statues… Our Moscow metro tour includes the most impressive stations best architects and designers worked at - Ploshchad Revolutsii, Mayakovskaya, Komsomolskaya, Kievskaya, Novoslobodskaya and some others.

What is the kremlin in russia?

The guide will not only help you navigate the metro, but will also provide you with fascinating background tales for the images you see and a history of each station.

And there some stories to be told during the Moscow metro tour! The deepest station - Park Pobedy - is 84 metres under the ground with the world longest escalator of 140 meters. Parts of the so-called Metro-2, a secret strategic system of underground tunnels, was used for its construction.

During the Second World War the metro itself became a strategic asset: it was turned into the city's biggest bomb-shelter and one of the stations even became a library. 217 children were born here in 1941-1942! The metro is the most effective means of transport in the capital.

There are almost 200 stations 196 at the moment and trains run every 90 seconds! The guide of your Moscow metro tour can explain to you how to buy tickets and find your way if you plan to get around by yourself.

Tour Itinerary

With the 1000-year history, Russia has had a rich portfolio of conflicts, battles, wars. On this Soviet tour, we'll talk about various wars that happened in Russia, focusing on WWII.

Mother Russia has undergone a lot in its long life. Since ancient times, Russian rulers have taken nearly all political power into their own hands. By the beginning of the 20th century, the Russian oppositional movement was deadly set for the total destruction of the ever-lasting tsarist regime. All of Russia got involved in the bloody revolution of 1917 in an effort to abolish the current state of the government and gain freedom for the ordinary people.

You will learn about the every-day life of the Soviet people during the bloody Second World War with the Nazis, including the legendary Battle for Moscow, the 900-day siege of Leningrad, the hardships that local citizens went through, the consequences of the war and the scars it left on the Soviet people, as well as why the Cold War happened and what was the fundamental reason.

Our mission on the Soviet Russia tour is to find out

  • - How much this 1917 revolution cost the people;
  • - Whether they actually got the freedom they wanted and was it worth it;
  • - What happened over the next 74 years;
  • - Who were the main political communist leaders of the Soviet Union;
  • - Were Russians happy and satisfied with the Soviet Union?

Our tour itinerary will lie in most Soviet areas of Moscow, which are quite spread throughout the city, as very few of them are left. You can choose how much you are ready to live this Soviet life on a 5, 7 or 10-hour tour. Depending on the duration of the tour, you will see part or all of the places below:

If you want to extend the tour, you are welcome to do so by paying $20/extra hour in cash on the tour.

Time stands still in Red Square. The Red Square is the heart of Moscow (and whole Russia). Saint Basil's Cathedral will make your mouth drop. If it is from May-October, have a cocktail on the outside terrace and simply people watch! The massive square offers so much to enjoy.

Lenin's Mausoleum

The burial place of one of the most influential communist leaders in the world.

Revolution Square Metro Station

Rub the Soviet dog's nose for good luck and admire the 76 bronze sculptures, devoted to the passionate, strong-willed and patriotic Soviet people.

Poklonnaya Hill

The highest point in Moscow, where Napoleon waited for keys of the city.

All-Russian Exhibition Center (VVC)

With its giant arch, amazing fountain, and huge pavilions of different Soviet Republics.

Victory Park Metro Station

The deepest undeground station in Moscow and one of the deepest in the world.

Victory Park

For an open-air museum as big as 135 ha (1 350 000 square meters), Victory park sure doens't lack diversity. The park is dedicated to the Russian victory in WWII, and was laid out in 1995 in commemoration of 50-year anniversary of victory.

Stalin had planned for its construction already in 1941, being sure of victory from the very start of the war.

Greeting Hill

The highest points in Moscow (172 meters), where Napoleon waited for keys of Moscow in vain.

Triumphal Arch

Stunning monument consisting of 12 cast-iron columns, each 12 meters high, and weighing 16 tons. Built to mark Russia's victory over Napoleon in 1812.

Museum of the Great Patriotic War

In the city that is as much about wars as it is about victories, there is one essential stopover - the Museum of the Great Patriotic War (that's what WWII is called in Russia). Must-do for those wishing to understand Russia's past and look at the whole war from the different perspective - Russian.

The museum is not for the faint-hearted. Here you can see films about the partisan experience, the scenes that will haunt you forever (no subtitles, but they are not necessary).

Museum of Contemporary History (from outside only)

We'll have a glance at Russian life of the XX century in the  Museum of Contemporary History , which houses bits of everything from Russian history of XXth century: from English club to a storage of Stalin's presents.

Memorial to the Holocaust,

devastating and breath-taking!

Unleash your inner spy. Highly recommended  Bunker-42 ,  Cold War Museum , explore the place where Khrushchev lived during the Cuban Crisis. Go down 18 floors to a gigantic bunker under Moscow that was designed to withstand a nuclear attack. Watch a short film about the severity of the Cold War. If you lived through the Cold War, you will hardly believe it is possible that you are in Bunker 42!

Wander through  Sparrow Hills  and climb up to the highest observation deck of Moscow with stunning views of all seven Stalin’s skyscrapers, including  Moscow State University . After that, experience the excitement of taking a  river cruise  on the Moscow river and catch the views of the Kremlin and Soviet times.​
