The Official Home of England Rugby
Not only is Twickenham Stadium the home of England Rugby but the largest dedicated Rugby Union venue in the world, seating a capacity of up to 82,000 people.
The history of Twickenham begins with William ‘Billy’ Williams, who was charged by the Rugby Union to find a ground for England Rugby. His choice of the site quickly earned the nickname the Cabbage Patch as it was built on allotments used for growing fruit and vegetables.
After an £80 million investment in 2006, England’s National Stadium stood in all its glory.
