Wembley Welcomes the Rugby World Cup #RugbyWorldCup

If you're visiting us for the Rugby World Cup… Welcome to London!

Wembley Stadium, the home of football in England, plays host to New Zealand and Argentina this evening at 16:45, with the famous All Blacks among the favourites to lift the trophy come October. The New Zealanders have yet to win the Webb Ellis Cup when the tournament has been staged in the Northern Hemisphere.

Their fans are sure to shake Wembley, not least when their team stages the famous war dance The Haka.

We grabbed this snap of Wembley Stadium last week – one we didn't believe to be possible…

The stadium nearest the camera, to the right of centre in the picture, is Craven Cottage, home of Fulham F.C. The arch in the distance is the famous signature of Wembley.

Here's how they stand in relation to one another on the map…

The angle surprised us. One of London's greatest talents is her ability to constantly surprise. Can the Argentinians pull off their own surprise at Wembley in emulation of last night's shock which saw Japan defeat South Africa?

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
