What will students see and do?

Twickenham Stadium, near London, is the home of England Rugby and the largest dedicated rugby union venue in the world, seating up to 82,000 people.

Educational groups are invited to explore the hallowed grounds of the stadium with a rugby expert, journey through rugby history in the World Rugby Museum, and experience hands-on learning in a free education session.

The tour will take you to the most exciting areas of the stadium where your group can:

  • Take a seat in the England Dressing Room
  • Imagine the roar of the crowd as you run out of the players’ tunnel to take in the view pitch-side
  • Absorb the atmosphere from the best seats in the house in the Royal Box
  • Follow the history of the game in the World Rugby Museum, from its origins at Rugby School to the present day
  • Explore a glittering array of trophies including the Calcutta Cup, made from 270 silver rupees
  • Take up the challenge of discovering “What Kind of Rugby Player Are You?” in the Play Rugby Interactive Zone.

The World Rugby Museum has a diverse educational programme to accommodate all groups. A free education session is available as part of the stadium tour package.

Students will have a practical learning experience linked to the national curriculum as part of a fun and memorable day out.
