Twickenham Stadium

Twickenham Stadium is the largest rugby union stadium in the United Kingdom, seating 82,000 and the second largest stadium of any kind after Wembley Stadium.

The stadium is the home of the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and hosts England's home test matches as well as the Middlesex Sevens, the Guinness Premiership final, the EDF Energy Cup and Heineken Cup matches. The stadium is an icon of English rugby.

The RFU releases 200 pairs of tickets to local residents for each England rugby game through their rugby post magazine.

If you are thirsty, each corner of the Stadium has a large bar, and there are many smaller bars on each level inside the Stadium. The food outlets are located around the Stadium concourse.  There are lots of good pubs near Twickenham Stadium, visit our page on twickenham rugby pubs for more info.

Buying Tickets for Twickenham Stadium

There are few ways to buy tickets:

- Ticketmaster UK sell tickets to all the big games at Twickenham.

However there are also two professional ticketing networks that offer second hand match tickets - usually the best place to look if you missed the first day on sale, or last minute:

- Viagogo - they say "Buyers are guaranteed to receive valid tickets in time for the event. If a problem arises, viagogo will step in to provide replacement tickets or a refund in the rare instances where this is not possible."

- - they say "Our TicketIntegrity guarantee ensures you'll get the tickets you ordered by the day of the event. If not, we'll find repla- cement tickets or refund every penny."

Twickenham Stadium Transport

The nearest train station is Twickenham Station, approximately a 10-15 minute walk away - with hot dog and burger stands along the way. On match and concert days the main road to the stadium is closed to traffic at key times.  Richmond Station is about 40 minutes away.  Strawberry Hill Station is probably also about 25 minutes away.  If you are coming by car, see the section on parking!

Twickenham stadium busThe RFU lays on special buses to and from Richmond Station to Twickenham Stadium for matches and concerts throughout the year.

The bus fare is currently only 50p - leaving plenty of cash for a pint at one of Twickenhams best pubs!  Its a much better idea to take the train and bus than trying to find parking near Twickenham Stadium.
