As the home of rugby union, Twickenham Stadium is a major symbol of British sports. Built in 1907, the more than 80,000-capacity venue has hosted matches for three Rugby World Cups, as well as American football games, rugby league competitions, and performances by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, and Metallica.
Match day tickets must be booked well in advance. Alternatively, a stadium tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic stadium and World Rugby Museum without the match-day crowds. The London Pass includes admission to Twickenham on non-match days, along with other top attractions and transportation via hop-on hop-off buses over a period that suits your schedule.
