10 rugby stadiums make the Telegraphs Best Places to Watch Sport in the UK & Ireland in 2020 list

The Telegraph writers picked their favourite places to go and watch sport, explaining why they love them. The list included 10 rugby stadiums, but maybe not the ones you’d expect…

1. Wharfedale rugby club

you can retreat to a proper clubhouse after the game, the mud washed off, the cold sting turning slowly to a ruddy glow amid the warm, welcoming thrum around the bar, where a pint of Tetley’s slips down as naturally as the waterfalls in the surrounding hills.

2. Headingley, Leeds

3. Principality Stadium, Cardiff

Simply the best rugby stadium in the world. There is not an atmosphere to match it when the retractable roof is closed and the Welsh national anthem is being belted out. Try watching England or Ireland there in the 2019 Six Nations if you can.
