8. Welford Road – Leicester Tigers 3*
Welford Road is one of my favourite Rugby grounds. The atmosphere on a big match day is hard to beat, with the passionate fans kept close to the action and well-oiled from the many bars inside!
7. Sixways – Worcester Warriors 3*
For a sports stadium Sixways seems much more friendly overall, calmer and far more family orientated. Drinks are also easy to buy with minimum queuing.
6. Ashton Gate – Bristol Bears 3*
Always a lively venue on rugby day and well worth booking in to one of the Ashton Gate restaurants. The service is of the highest level even when the staff are dealing with so many people. Not the traditional rugby experience, but always an enjoyable one.
5. The Rec – Bath 3.5*
The Rec has to be one of the top places to watch club rugby in the world. The facilities and seating may not earn 5 stars, but the setting and atmosphere more than makes up for it. The ground is wonderfully placed beside the River Avon, with the old buildings and Abbey of the historic city watching over the action.
