Top 10 Senior Rugby Tours Revealed

10. Düsseldorf

If you think Düsseldorf starts and ends with Oz, Barry, Dennis and the lads, then you are entirely wrong. After visiting the city, you will see why the Auf Wiedersehen boys went back for more, it is addictive, it's pretty lively it's Germany's fun town. 

The seventh most populated city in Germany, this is a buzzing bustling city with a huge student population. 

Germany is a third-tier Rugby Union playing nation. Germany currently plays at the second level of European rugby but has never managed to qualify for the Rugby World Cup.  This however does not prevent them from being very accommodating and a great destination for senior rugby teams.

Great rugby clubs, a stunning city and copious amounts of Vodka.

Krakow is one of our new entry's for an end of season weekend on the lash.

Enjoy boozy local bars, nightclubs open to 6am and much more all within a short stroll. The Rugby in Krakow will be hosted by the Juvenia Rugby who are also right in the heart of the city and love a social.

8. Prague

Prague is easy to get to, affordable to stay in, and beer is still relatively cheap. 

When you combine the 30+ breweries and Brewpub with the historic and picturesque setting and you get a beer lovers paradise.

Rugby in Prague is as strong as it gets in Eastern Europe with a handful of clubs that can compete with the best from the West and plenty more than are excellent hosts for the more social sides.

A City that is immensely proud of its nightlife.

If Newcastle is the UK’s party town on the East coast then Liverpool definitely takes the crown for being the ultimate part town on the West coast.

You and your team will stay just a short 5-minute stroll from the famous Concert Square which is home to great bars with a huge outdoor terrace, perfect for those sunny Summer evenings.

After arriving in Glasgow on the Friday night, check into the hostel, dump your kit bags and then head into Town for your first night! The nightlife is rowdy, inexpensive and runs on into the early hours.

Saturday, you'll have the nuisance of a Tour Match. After the game you will enjoy a bite to eat, some refreshing beers and a good old traditional sing-song with your host club.

Whilst in Glasgow, a great way to spend a boozy afternoon is to include tickets to watch the Glasgow Warriors in action. Away from Rugby, why not enjoy a guided speedboat bar crawl of Loch Lomond, go woodland paint-balling or hit the slopes at Snow Factor.  

2. Newcastle

The Geordie Shore. If there is a better night-out in the UK, we're yet to experience it. More bars than you can get thrown out of in a lifetime, never mind a weekend. 

After arriving in Newcastle on the Friday night, we'll line you up with 100 Free Beers at The Union Rooms before lining up some Student-Guides to lead you on an epic Pub-Crawl of Newcastle.

You'll end the night with queue-jumpers at Bier Keller, an oompah-themed German Bar - Steins, Lederhosen, Fraulines, the lot. 

Saturday, you'll have the nuisance of a Tour Match at a Club in Newcastle. After some generous hospitality, you'll disembark the coach back in Toon for your second night.
