Twickenham is the district of outer London that lies on the banks of the River Thames opposite Richmond.
Like so many areas of outer London, Twickenham remained rural for much of its history with just a few scattered houses. But once the expansion of London had reached the district in the 19th century, it was soon transformed with residential housing, making it a typical residential housing.
Nevertheless, Twickenham is famous all over Britain - the reason for this is rugby. For this is the home of the Twickenham Rugby Football Ground, the most famous rugby ground in Britain where national and international matches are held.
If you are a fan of rugby you can visit the grounds, guided tours are available Mondays to Fridays by appointment only. If you can't make a guided tour, there is also a museum available which is dedicated to the history of the game.
The Rugby Museum is open Mondays to Fridays 9.30am to 5pm. Admission is free.
