I’m biting the bullet and taking FoL#2 to se ENG v SA in the autumn internationals.
Naturally all the hotels nearby, even the travelodges are either booked out or really expensive.
Heathrow T4 Premier Inn is reasonably priced though, but how easy is it to get to the stadium from there, public transport only, I’ll definitely be having a drinkie. I assume there’s going to be the worlds amount of Ubers etc?
The whole area around Twickers grinds to a halt on matchday with road closures etc. I wouldn’t expect buses to be running as normal
Anywhere within reach of Richmond would be fine.
When I used to go regularly we always had a few in Richmond (the only time the police have thrown me into a pub) and then walk to the ground from there.
It is a bit of a walk but half the crowd will also be doing it.
Twickenham station itself is OK if you are going straight to the match, All the trains that would normally go staright through Twickenham stop there on match day.
For your hotel search anywhere along the line from Clapham Junction to Richmond will work
Cool, we intend to book in, drop the bags, get the train to Twickers, grab some lunch, and start drinking. Go to the match, continue drinking, then after the match get some dinner and continue drinking some more, around midnight get the train back and collapse into bed.
