A316 closed on Saturday 15 August: 17:00-00:00 approx
This Saturday Twickenham is hosting an international rugby game at the Stadium - England v France - kick off at 8pm. This match is being used to test the highway and transport arrangements for the Rugby World Cup later this September so a section of the A316 will be closed from 3 hours prior to kick off, during the match and until approximately 2 hours after the final whistle.
The temporary closure will allow Tournament organisers to operate additional shuttle bus services to Central London and buses to a Park and Ride facility at Kempton Park and Hounslow Civic Centre. The closure also permits people walking to and from Twickenham Stadium to easily and safely cross the A316 in larger numbers. Therefore, this Saturday, the section of the A316 (between Hospital Bridge Road and Currys Roundabout) and the normal match day road closures will be in place.
Please note that the Tennis Court in the gardens is only open to visitors during summer months.
This summer our Royal Tennis Courts will unfortunately be closed to visitors from 7th April - 14th September to allow for major structural works. Find out more about the Tennis Courts >
On Thursday 27, Friday 28 August and Tuesday 1 September the East Front Gardens will remain closed due to the build and breakdown of the BBC Good Food Festival that runs 29-31 August. The Privy Garden and South Garden remain open with access through the palace.
There will be no Garden History tours 27 August - 1 September.
The Gardens Exhibition is being pruned and we are sowing new seeds… The Gardens Exhibition, off the Garden Shop and opened over 10 years ago, has come to the end of its natural life cycle so is now permanently closed. It will reopen again, for a forthcoming temporary exhibition to celebrate the Year of the English Garden in 2016, and the 300th anniversary of Capability Brown's birth, but not until April/May 2016.
