On the guided tour of BT Murrayfield, visitors will he taken inside areas of the stadium that they would never ordinarily get to see and will be regaled with stories from Scottish Rugby’s rich history – seeing what the stadium looks like day to day and learning about the preparations for international matches.
You will be able to sit in the hospitality boxes, enter the TV Studio, visit the Bill McLaren Press Gallery; see the glorious trophy cabinets including the Calcutta Cup, view the pitch from the coaches’ perspective and experience for yourself a walk through The Tunnel.
