No site in England is more important to rugby union than Twickenham Stadium. A visit to the home of England rugby and the World Rugby Museum (WRM) is a must for any rugby enthusiast, for a unique insight into this magnificent sport.
What to Expect
People of all ages and from around the world can follow the history of rugby from its origins to the present day. On this 2-hour tour you’ll discover why people love the game, from grassroots rugby to the elite sport, and get the stories behind some of the greatest players, matches, and tries, with a little humor thrown in.
Twickenham Stadium is the 5th-largest sports stadium in Europe and the largest rugby venue in the world.
Highlights of the World Rugby Museum (WRM) include:
• The Play Rugby Zone, where you can take up the challenge and test your skills including speed, strength, and kicking prowess, to find out what kind of rugby player you are;
• A glittering array of trophies including the Calcutta Cup, the intricately beautifully engraved trophy made from 270 silver rupees for which England and Scotland have competed since 1879;
• Film and video footage allowing you to re-live some of rugby’s most memorable moments; and
• The world’s finest collection of rugby memorabilia, including over 25,000 iconic objects dating back to the beginning of the game.
The guided tour gives you access to some of the most exclusive parts of the Stadium. Have a seat in the new England dressing room (refurbished in late 2013), absorb the atmosphere in the royal box, and imagine the roar of the crowd as you run out of the players’ tunnel to take in the pitch-side view.
