ROAD: Twickenham Stadium is on the northern side of the A316 into London. From M25, exit at J12 onto M3. This becomes the A316, and Twickenham Stadium is off the Whitton Road roundabout next to the Lexus / Toyota car dealership. From London, turn right off the A316 at Whitton Road roundabout. Please arrive early to avoid congestion and temporary road closures prior to the event.
CAR PARKING:- Parking at or around Twickenham Stadium on matchdays is very limited. Many of the roads are for resident permit holders only and any unauthorised vehicles will be towed away. On-site car parking is extremely limited and is normally pre-allocated for international matches. Parking is generally available on site for non-international matches and Concerts if booked in advance. Our off-site car park is called Rosebine Avenue and is next to the Harlequins Ground on the A316. This is approximately 8 to 10 minutes walk to the stadium and is by far the easiest car park to get out of at the end of an event.
Twickenham Stadium is a stadium located in Twickenham, a suburb of south-west London (in the historic county of Middlesex). It is the largest Rugby union stadium in the United Kingdom and has recently been enlarged to seat 82,000. This makes it the second largest stadium in the U.K after Wembley Stadium.
The stadium is the home of the Rugby Football Union (RFU), and as such primarily a venue for rugby union and hosts England's home test matches, as well as the Middlesex Sevens, the Guinness Premiership final, as well as Powergen Cup and Heineken Cup matches. The stadium is considered an icon of English rugby.
Although the ground is usually only occupied by rugby union, it has in the past hosted a number of events, such as The Eagles, U2 and The Rolling Stones concerts.
