About Twickenham

For legions of rugby fans, Twickenham is chiefly known as the home of English rugby; and as the largest purpose-built rugby venue in the world, Twickenham Stadium is indeed a major feature of this leafy town on the southwest edge of London.

Of course, there's much more to Twickenham than just the rugby. Whether you're a devoted rugby fan interested in exploring more of this attractive town, or perhaps a family member or friend who has tagged along but wants to see something a bit less sport-focused, there are plenty of great attractions in the Twickenham area that will appeal to a variety of tastes.

The town will meet modern requirements and have a strong local economy whilst making the most of its distinctive heritage, open spaces and riverside. The rest of the area is largely residential with some local shopping parades. These areas will be preserved and enhanced particularly the Crane Valley which with the redevelopment of Twickenham Station and the Royal Mail Sorting Office sites will provide a major open space corridor linking the village area, as well as a new community building, with an arts venue and studio space, something the borough urgently needs. The RFU and the Stoop Memorial Ground are also important attractions within the area.
