The Official Home of England Rugby
Twickenham Stadium is the home of England Rugby and the largest dedicated Rugby Union venue globally, seating up to 82,000 people.
The history of Twickenham begins with William ‘Billy’ Williams, who the Rugby Union charged to find a ground for England Rugby. His site choice quickly earned the Cabbage Patch’s nickname as the land was used for growing fruit and vegetables.
After an £80 million investment in 2006, England’s National Stadium stood in all its glory.

History Of The Stadium
The home of English rugby began as a market garden before the RFU (Rugby Football Union) transformed it into a rugby pitch in 1907. Twickenham Stadium, second only to Wembley Stadium in terms of size, is one of the largest rugby stadiums in the United Kingdom. The venue is the 4th largest stadium in Europe and holds the largest stadium dedicated to rugby globally.
In 1909, Richmond v Harlequins was held for the first rugby game at Twickenham. In 1910, the venue was fully completed and “sparked the golden era” of English rugby. Twenty thousand spectators watched England v Wales for the Six Nations, previously known as Five Nations. The England v Ireland clash in 1988 has become iconic for starting the tradition of singing “Swing Low, Sweet Charriot” for rugby fans in Twickenham. In 2004, the stadium was redeveloped to create a world-class venue, expanding to 82,000 capacity. Twickenham also introduced a four0star Marriott Hotel, a performing arts complex with health and leisure clubs.
