    Going to England vs Japan at Twickenham next weekend. Been invited at short notice and after hotel recommendations.
    Not the best at finding my way around London so would need somewhere close with easy commute. Driving down Friday night and returning Sunday. Any help will be grateful.

    I’ve stayed in the Alexander Pope hotel a few times when down there for work. About a 10 - 15 minute walk to the stadium (but you do pass a few pubs along the way)

    I like it, and you can normally get a half decent deal.. maybe not so easy when there’s a game on like.

    I was at the England vs South Africa game last weekend. I stayed in the Travellodge in Hammersmith. Easy to get the underground to and not too far away from the ground.

    Looks good but like you said fully booked. We meeting in pub called "The Winning Post". Is that one you pass.

    I always stay central then get the train from Waterloo.

    There's a massive Premier Inn near Heathrow which isn't far off. When we stayed a couple of years ago there were loads of Rugby fans staying there for the world cup

    If driving stop the far side of Twickenham (closer to the m25). Easier to get to and from the stadium
     
  9. Richmond Hill hotel is nice. Right on the gates to Richmond Park, short stroll down the hill to Richmond for piss up before a stroll out to Twickers

    I'd echo that, nice hotel and often has deals on
     
  11. Even better if you can hoy a bike in the boot, or rent one and go for a cycle round the park. The colours will be stunning right now, and the deer likely to be rutting.
     
  12. This, if you want decent transport links into London. @Flared Hicks idea about Richmond if you're just going to stay around the local area, which is very nice.

    If you're staying in Hammersmith it also means you can walk to the tube station at Hounslow instead of queueing for hours at the train station and a slow crawl back into London in a packed fartbox

    Nice hotel but expensive, theres a decent b&b hotel at bottom of bank called richmond park hotel i think, readonable price and on doorstep of richmond pubs n restaurants, bus to twickenham over river. Lovely place.

    Now you've gone and ruined it.

    Just be aware if you are using the train that there is strike action for the next 3 or 4 Saturdays. There will be reduced services.

    You could also consider stopping in Windsor and getting the train back to Twickenham if they are running. You got anyone coming with you?
