Have visited the stadium countless times over the years for National and club games and for the last few years security checks have been in place to check coats, bags etc confiscating bottles, cans etc as well as presumably checking for anything potentially dangerous. Not so this time. Whilst you had to show your covid passport to gain entry, the only security check consisting of asking me if I had any bottles in my rucksack. No checks at all. The ‘security’ person didn’t even take his hands out of his pockets. Are they assuming that potential terrorists or ‘lone wolves’ are self isolating? The fact this was a major game being live streamed surely made it a potential target. Shockingly poor security.

This was on my bucket list and went v Tonga 69-3 England victory. It did not disappoint loved the view and feel of the stadium. The stewards weren't vey good and neither was the crowd management on leaving the stadium after the match

Went down to HQ to watch Barbarians v Samoa, unfortunately due to a Covid outbreak the match was called off just as we arrived at the stadium. A bit of a farce but not the stadiums fault. Ended up watching the Barbarians Women v South Africa Women…..which turned out to be a great afternoon……..how often do you get to go to Twickenham for free!

Despite not being the most modern of stadia I’ve still got a soft spot for Twickkers! It’s the home of English rugby after all.

The views are pretty good from most places though the seats are a little low for tall guys!

Just don’t mention the beer prices!!

I have been very lucky to attend several Rugby matches at Twickenham over the last few years and still think it’s one of the best auditoriums in which to watch live sport. And the atmosphere at a competitive rugby game is second to none. I still bemoan that Aviva no longer sponsor the Rugby Premierships and run the start of season London double headers.
For me one of the most important things is that you can see what is going on and I must have sat in nearly every section over the years and not had a duff view in any of them. The rake is almost perfect, although it is quite steep at the back of the very top tier, but all things are relative and it’s not as gravity defying as the top seats at the Albert Hall or the top tier of the Nou Camp for example. Nearly all seats are under cover with the exception of the front few rows of the lower tier.
The biggest negative is not the stadium itself but it’s location and crap transportation links. Twickenham station is on the South Eastern network and that’s all you need to know to how reliable the train services are and how long it takes to get 10’s of thousands of supporters back into London . Yes you can pay to use one of the official car parks but be prepared to sit in your car for a long time after the game. Take my word for what a mess the A316 and other surrounding roads are after a game. It’s just in the wrong place to disperse 82000 fans in any appreciable time.
Another negative is that the food and drink concessions in the stadium are very expensive and there isn’t enough bars to cope with the half time rush, ( show me a stadium that does) and when coupled with the fact that whoever designed the toilets inside the stadium had no concept of crowd flow dynamics it is impossible to use the toilet and buy a drink at halftime without missing a sizeable portion of the second half.
So to overcome these weaknesses my advice would be:-
A) Make a day of it, come early, stay late.
B) Plan to eat and drink outside the stadium ( and I consider the Fan Zone to be outside when considering drinking)
We always come early and drink in the Fan Zone by the West stand with its Guinness Village and cask ale bars. Then after the game go into Twickenham for its many pubs and restaurants ( especially the cobbled old street down to the Thames) where the atmosphere carries on for several hours after a game, by which time the trains and roads have returned to normal.

Awesome atmosphere. Was here for autumn internationals against Australia and South Africa and they sure know how to make it a proper show. My only criticism is that the service at the bars, despite being card payment only and many of the drinks being pre-poured,

I attended the England v Australia game on Saturday 13 November. Despite getting to the ground approx 90 minutes before KO, I didn't get to my seat until just gone 5.30 pm.

This is the first time I have been there for a number of years, I certainly won't be rushing back. Entry gates A, B and C took forever. Luckily the fans were considerate, but there could have easily been a crush. We were moving 1 foot at a time, every 5 minutes, it was painful.

Once in, great seats and a brilliant game of rugby. At half time a mate went to a bar to get refreshments, they had run out of beer.

Fast forward to the end of the day. This was not a pleasant end to the day. There was a punch up in the bar area on the grass, away from the stadium. One bloke knocked out cold, lots of blood, a few stewards, medical staff and not a policeman/ policewoman in sight. Luckily my mate and his young daughter had left by then.

Very un Twickers like!!!

Getting to the stadium and parking was all very easy. Once in side not much to do at all and very limited seating outside. The food and drink stools are very overpriced. The rugby, show and seating etc inside the stadium was all very good and a great atmosphere. Getting out of the car park was a complete nightmare and was a case of bullying your way through, when it could have been a lot easier if it was staffed and controlled. There was also the need to have double jab, or covid flow test result etc on the tickets, when in fact none of these was checked at all. A great day out but some things could be improved

From the mysterious yet predictable baked bean to the highly anticipated Cabbage Patch this was a wonderful day for all 6 of us.

After Marks Guinness refusal, Professor Rousseau chose the early Christmas lunch and the train driver did his best to wet our clothes.

Thanks to Mr R Horns new directions we arrived 3 minutes earlier than anticipated and we're met by some Cornwall drinking champions with enough accent to rival TNTs RingTone.

The FarmerCeutical was in consumption mode while Whirlwind distributed Guinness to nearby clothing and headgear. The headgear stakes increased with the acquisition of the infamous upside down Poppy, providing much hilarity throughout the evening, especially when accompanied by Kenny Everett's thumb.

The game was amazing and HQ lived up to its name.

The return journey was eventful and arduous with only 4 making it to last orders. The beer mats we're flipped, the tablestakes increased and a great day was toasted appropriately.

We love you Twickenham!

I attended the England v Tonga match on November 6th 2021, my fourth visit to Twickenham for an England international since 2017. As an experience, it's a mixed bag, and I'd award it 3.5 stars if I could.
Fans were instructed to arrive at least 45 minutes before kick off, yet when I turned up an hour and a quarter early, the queues outside Gate A were ridiculously long.
Once through the gates, making one's way around the exterior of Twickenham is a thoroughly depressing experience, akin to walking past the outside of a multi storey car park. The interior, thankfully, is better. Architecturally it's nothing special but the stadium has a decent atmosphere and the views and legroom are fine (I was in the lower tier but I've been up in the gods in the past). The facilities are okay: not bleak and grimy but not shiny and modern either.
The more I think about it, the more I realise it's the most archetypal 7/10 stadium experience one could hope to have.

A definite place to visit for rugby fans, maybe an obvious statement but you don't always realise what you have missed until you find it!
We had an excellent tour guide, just being next to the hallowed turf was quite emotional. We also walked in from the 'poppy & roses' gate through to the changing rooms - but, I won't tell you what we saw, you need to see for yourself, needless to say it's worth a visit.
Sitting in various seats in the stadium gives a wonderful idea of how comfortable some are (VIP guests) and the views they get from areas I doubt we will ever see when England are playing at home.
All sorts of snippets of information were gleened; all in all an enjoyable day.
We also spent a lot of time in the museum both before and after our tour and ... I spent quite a bit (lol, £s not hours) in the shop.
