Twickenham Stadium in South West London is the largest stadium in the world that’s dedicated to rugby union. With a capacity of 82,000, it’s also the second-largest Stadium in the UK and the fifth-largest in Europe.
Ever since 1907, it’s been the home of England Rugby playing host to the Autumn Internationals and Six Nations team matches, the English leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series and club rugby finals.
Twickenham Stadium is also the venue for a number of live music events and has attracted some of the biggest stars in the world to perform to their fans there, including U2, Lady Gaga, Bryan Adams and Beyonce.
What are the best seats at Twickenham Stadium?
There are four stands which surround the pitch at Twickenham – West, East, North and South – that are divided into individual blocks which are located on three levels – Lower, Middle & Upper Tier.
The East and West stands both run along the length of the pitch and the North and South are positioned behind the post. Thankfully the stands are near to the ground, meaning that even if you are situated in the upper-tiers your view won’t be restricted and you’ll still be able to see what is happening on the other end of the pitch.
For people who like to be right near the action, the first 20 rows of the West and East stands, in the Lower Tier may be best, however anywhere you choose to sit you’re guaranteed to have a fantastic view of the action and witness the buzz and atmosphere of the game.
All four stands are all undercover to protect you from the rain. However, it’s worth taking your sunglasses if you are sitting in the East Stand as the afternoon sun can produce a glare.
If you like to watch a game with food and drink (who doesn’t?!), then there are plenty of bars and food outlets within the concourse of the stadium that serves everything from pizza to curry and cater for those with dietary requirements meaning you won’t be going hungry!
