The lights may technically be out at London theaters, but the district has turned to the small screen, allowing you to stream musicals, plays, and cabarets from home. Stay entertained—and keep local performers in business—with recommendations from an actor and tour guide who knows the West End best.
Whitton Road, Twickenham, United Kingdom
Match day tickets must be booked well in advance. Alternatively, a stadium tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic stadium and World Rugby Museum without the match-day crowds. The London Pass includes admission to Twickenham on non-match days, along with other top attractions and transportation via hop-on hop-off buses over a period that suits your schedule.
A Fantastic day was had by all.
We met our tour guy Mike Haggar, in the rugby store. He was extremely nice and took us first to the England Rose/poppy gates and was so full of information. He took us up to level 6 and told us a lot of things we didn't know, all the time making he made it seem as he was talking to you! We went in the President' s lounge, the royal box. Changing rooms, they're a lot bigger than they look on the telly! He took us down to the the pitch . I found out information about the players that lost their lives in both World Wars that is behind the gates that we saw (Rose/Poppies) we had the most amazing tour & that was all due to Mike Haggar, the man's a legend! We also toured the World Rugby Museum. OMG it was amazing. There were shirts from all over the World. I always wondered why they called a rugby shirt a rugby jersey, it's because the early shirts were knitted & they looked like a jumper. Take a trip to Twickenham & do the tour & Museum, even if you don't like rugby, you will have a fantastic experience. You might even be luck & have Mike.
