You may hear Twickenham Stadium referred to by locals as the Cabbage Patch. That’s because it was one before being purchased by the RFU for use as a dedicated rugby arena. Over the years, Twickenham has been used for many things in addition to rugby, including some time as a grazing ground for horse, cattle, and sheep during World War I. Today, it’s used primarily for rugby. though it does host the occasional concert or convention.
Charter a Jet to Rugby’s 2015 World Cup
There are many reasons to charter a jet for your trip to Rugby’s 2015 World Cup games not the least of which is convenience. In addition to scheduling charter jet flights according to your timetable rather than an airline’s, you can also make changes to your plans according to how far your team advances. Something that’s not quite as simple with traditional airline flights.
There’s also the privacy factor, which is no small deal when taking longer flights. Private aviation allows you privacy to sleep or relax during your flight uninterrupted by other people on the flight, crying babies, and chatty seat mates. You can even conduct business on the flight so that your time is free to take in the sights, sounds, and atmosphere of World Cup Rugby once you land.
