Baby and Junior Tickets

Junior tickets are available, and juniors are classed as aged 15 and under.

Babies in arms need to be in a front carrier – buggies, prams and carry seats are not permitted. They do not require a ticket and can be seated anywhere within the stadium.

Under 2s do not require a ticket however over 2s require a ticket and can be seated anywhere within the Stadium. We would advise against booking in the upper tier for anyone with children under 8, and that the rake of the seats in the upper tier is steep and some people may find this unnerving. Children must be supervised in these areas at all times.

Please book appropriate seating, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to re-seat customers on match days.

Twickenham has its own mainline station operating lines to London Waterloo, Reading and Windsor and Eton Riverside and Twickenham Stadium is a 15 minute walk from the station. Other nearby train stations include Whitton Rail Station and St Margaret’s Rail Station.

The closest tube stations to Twickenham Stadium are Richmond Rail & Tube which operates both mainline trains and District Line and Hounslow East Tube which operates the Piccadilly Line.
