This behind-the-scenes guided tour will explain how a ‘Cabbage Patch’ became the World’s most famous rugby stadium; from the first international in 1910 to hosting the spectacular 2015 World Cup. We will be given access to some of the most exclusive parts of the Stadium, take a seat in the England dressing room, absorb the atmosphere in the royal box and imagine the roar of the crowd as we leave the tunnel to take in the pitch side. Explore the newly-furbished museum at your leisure and find out why millions of people around the world love rugby.
