Posted: Jul. 3rd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

An icon of English rugby, Twickenham Stadium has been used for the high-energy sport since 1909 and has consistently provided visitors a spectacular venue. As the home of the Rugby Football Union, this impressive stadium is most often used as a venue for rugby union and England’s home matches. Additionally, many of the large rugby tournaments finish at Twickenham Stadium like the Middlesex Sevens, Aviva Premiership final and Heineken Cup matches.

Also on site at Twickenham Stadium is the World Rugby Museum which displays history and pieces from around the world. Likewise, for a more in depth look at Twickenham Stadium, tours are available from Tuesday to Saturday and run four times daily except on match days. Like most stadiums, Twickenham Stadium is occasionally host to large musical performances like The Rolling Stones, U2, Iron Maiden, The Police, Eagles and Bon Jovi. Additionally, this venue is also a popular location for extra-large conventions.
