Twickenham Stadium is the home of Rugby Union and the England national rugby team. It is the largest stadium in the world to be devoted purely to this sport, the second largest stadium in the UK, and the third largest in Europe. In 'Twickenham: The Home of England Rugby', Phil McGowan takes us on an illustrated tour of the long and illustrious history of this magnificent stadium, featuring some of the legendary players that have trodden the hallowed ground of the Twickers, the matches that have taken place, and the history that is woven into the fabric of the ground. Lavishly illustrated with images and memorabilia from the World Rugby Museum's archive in full colour, this is tribute not only to the history of the stadium, but to Rugby Union itself.

Includes a glass of wine and chance to see the ‘Team Spirit: Rugby, Rowing and Beyond’ exhibition featuring exciting sporting objects from a range of team sports including WG Grace's Jubilee Cricket Ball, a Tudor Tennis Ball, and items from the 2003 Rugby World Cup.
