Twickenham Stadium, located in the Twickenham district of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, is currently the largest stadium in the United Kingdom with a capacity of 75,000. However it is expected to lose this status in mid 2006 when the new Wembley Stadium opens.
The South Stand is currently being redeveloped to increase capacity to 82,000. It is the home of England’s Rugby Football Union, and as such primarily a venue for rugby union and hosts England’s home test matches. Stadium tours are available and there is a Museum of Rugby at the ground.
