Senior Rugby

Ever since William Webb Ellis first picked up the ball in his arms and ran with it in 1823, clubs across the land have ventured to the four corners of the globe in the name of the Rugby Tour.

As much of a tradition of the game as Muddy Baths and Lurid Song, the end of season rugby tour sends shivers of excitement down the necks of club members as soon as the next destination is announced.

We have put together a list of locations which are tried and tested by touring teams just like you. In each city, we have hand-picked city-centre accommodation which is Rugby Team friendly, so there are no stuffy, suburban Hotels who won't raise a smile at the thought of an impromptu rendition of Yogi Bear in the hotel foyer.

Take a browse throught the options below, many of them you will recognise, but have a look at the ones you don't - they are there for a reason!

If you need any more persuasion, listen to Jim's speech on the right, and substitute any mention of Lions and Australia for your club's end of season tour. Magnificent.
