Train And Tube Details
The (Twickenham) Stoop is located in South West London (6 miles from Heathrow/20 Miles from London City/30 Miles from Gatwick airports) and is easily reachable by both the tube and overground trains in London. It is just a few minutes walk from Twickenham Stadium.
Tube: Via the tube to Richmond (District Line) or to Hounslow East (Piccadilly line) (takes about 1 hour from central London).
Both are about 1.5 miles walk from the ground. You can also transfer at Richmond to the overground for 1 stop to Twickenham which is a much shorter walk and also the location of our meeting point.
Mainline train service: From Waterloo station to Twickenham Station with more routes accessible via Clapham Junction. The ground is about a 15 minute walk from the station (train takes about 40 minutes if an express train).
*At the moment there is no planned engineering works affecting any of the above for the weekend.
