Take your child for a peek behind the scenes at the Home of England Rugby and help them learn all about the game's intriguing history with this Twickenham Stadium Tour for One Child. As the world's most famous rugby union venue, Twickenham Stadium is packed with over 100 years of rugby history. Under the direction of an expert tour guide you'll both travel through the stadium's halls from the England team's dressing room (where your child can sit in the place of their favourite player) all the way to the Royal Box, taking in a pitchside visit, the players' tunnel and VIP areas on the way as well as many other areas that can only be seen with exclusive behind the scenes access. They'll also get to take in the whole of Twickenham's arena from the top of the stadium stands before heading to the World Rugby Museum, where they can see the largest collection of rugby memorabilia from around the world and journey from the game's (alleged) schoolboy origins to the internationally-renowned professional sport it is today. There's lots of unique displays covering the game throughout the years, and with rolling exhibitions there's always something different to see and don't miss the chance to test out your rugby skills in the interactive Play Rugby Zone.
