Overview

Rugby League World Cup is the pinnacle tournament in international Rugby League and has a long-history dating back to 1954 when the tournament was first held in France, long outdating the Rugby Union World Cup. The 16th edition will be hosted by England and will see the world’s top 16 nations compete from 23 October to 27 November. Uniquely, the women’s and wheelchair tournaments will both be held at the same time as the men’s tournament, a first for Rugby League World Cup. Australia, who have won 11 of the 16 World Cups, will once again enter the tournament as the reigning World Champions and will be hard to beat, even against England who finished runners-up at RLWC 2017 and now have the home-side advantage.

Destination

England is the perfect host country for Rugby League World Cup, having been the second most successful nation in the World Cup’s history, the birthplace of rugby and rugby league, and the traditional heartland of the sport. The tournament will feature matches across the country, giving fans a fantastic opportunity to explore England and the UK. We plan on making the most of it, touring across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland from the pool matches to the finals.

Explore green fields, rumpled hills, chalk cliffs, ancient forests, moody moors, historic cities and quaint towns. The UK has a lot to offer travellers and truly has something for everyone. If you join one of our tours, we’ll have a great mix of nature, history, culture, sport and food on offer. Visit medieval cathedrals, regal palaces, seaside villages, historic sports grounds and get swept up in the intrigue, history and beauty of the United Kingdom.

Within England’s major cities, we’ll be staying right in the heart of the action, where you can visit museums, shops, restaurants, bars and cultural attractions with ease. If you’re an independent traveller, we recommend hiring a car and exploring the countryside and villages at your leisure. England is a wonderful place to get lost and see what you can discover.

Climate

October and November in the UK is autumn. The warmer days of summer are turning cooler, yet there’s still sunshine about, particularly in October. This shoulder season is great for travelling, as it’s a much quieter than the summer months. While it will be quite cool at night, it can be pleasant during the day when the sun is out and as such, we recommend packing for all seasons, but particularly warm clothing and traditional rugby gear. Expect average highs of around 10-14ºC and lows of 5-8ºC.
