Twickenham Stadium is the largest stadium in the world dedicated to rugby union, with a seating capacity of 82,000 people. Opened in 1909, it is mainly a rugby venue, but has also staged other events including mostly concerts from big names in the music industry like the Rolling Stones, The Police, Bon Jovi and Rihanna.

As well as rugby games themselves, tours are also offered at the stadium. Guided tours are priced at £20 per adult, £15 for concessions, £12 per child (5 to 15), and £50 for a family ticket. Included in the tour are a visit to the royal box, players’ tunnel, a view of the arena from the top of the stand, and a pitchside walk, as well as a visit to the England dressing room where you will learn about the match-day preparations and routines of international rugby players. Tours also include entry to the World Rugby Museum.
Museum-only tickets are £8 for adults, £7 for concessions, £6 for children, and £25 for a family ticket.

Stadium tours are not available on select dates due to matches and events at the stadium, so do check in advance before visiting. Museum entry on match days is only possible for match or event ticket holders. On Mondays, the museum is closed and tours do not run.
