The Rugby Groud Guide

Travel

Air: The Stoop is only about six miles from Heathrow Airport, as evidenced by the low-flying aircraft overhead. If you’re coming from Heathrow, take the Piccadilly line to Hounslow East Station, and pick up a 281 bus for the remainder of the journey.

The Stoop is also easily accessed from Gatwick Airport. Catch any London-bound train that stops at Clapham Junction, and take a train from there to Twickenham Station.

 

Rail: Twickenham station is served by trains from London Waterloo and Reading, with more services and routes accessible via Clapham Junction.

Upon leaving the station, turn right towards Twickenham Rugby Stadium and left at the mini-roundabout. Take the first left into Court Way and then turn left   into Craneford Way and continue on until you reach the stadium.

The Twickenham Stoop is at the end of the road on the right.

An alternative destination is Whitton Station, which is about a 15 walk from the station. Leaving the station, head north on Percy Road before taking a quick right onto Bridge Way. Follow this road until you reach Redway Drive, where you take a right then left onto the busy Chertsey Road, and continue on until you reach The Stoop.

 

Road: From the M3: Follow the M3 until it ends at the Sunbury Roundabout. Continue up   the A316 Chertsey Road, over three roundabouts.

 Continue for 2 miles. With Twickenham Stadium on your left, Quins’ ground is on the right. U-turn at the RFU roundabout. Enter the Stoop via Langhorne Drive, 450 yards on your left

From the M4: Leave the M4 at Junction 3.   Take the 3rd exit off the roundabout for the A312, towards Feltham (A306) Continue along the A312 for 4.5 miles. At the A305/A316 roundabout, turn left onto the A316. Then as per From the M3.

Parking: Unusually, there is ample parking at the Stoop. It costs £3-8 to park in the Rosebine next to the ground on the A316-the more people the cheaper it is.

An alternative is to park in the Twickenham stadium car park on the other side of the A316. From there it is a 5-minute walk over the footbridge to the Stoop.

 

By Bus: Bus number 267 runs between Hammersmith and Fulwell Garage.

Bus number 281 runs between Hounslow and Tolworth.

Both services stop within easy reach of the ground.
