  • Disabled team messed me around and wasted my time. Guy on the phone was good before I arrived but because I didn't have wheelchair and was on crutches when I got there. I was told to walk up stairs and sit in normal stand not disabled seats which I had booked. Bearing in mind I cannot bend my leg. Then complained and moved around again back to original seats. Waste of my time, health and money. Apart from that. Rugby was good of what I got to watch
  • Home of Scotish Rugby. This is my castle. Great place for the family to visit. If you love your sport come join us and support Scottish Rugby. On international game days it's not just a 90 minute session, you are welcomed into BT Murrayfield to enjoy a whole range of activities, hours before and hours after, there are things for all ages.
  • Older stadium but easy to access and great views, near to the pitch. Fun fan zone e outside for beers, gin and tonics, as well as a bite to eat.
  • Even though it is an international rugby stadium, the arrangements for getting supporters in and out were superb. The range of food on offer was impressive, as were the very, very reasonable prices. Twickenham should take note that you don;t have to rip off supporters.
  • Great stadium, no supporting pillars in the way. Helpful and friendly staff. The rugby helps too.
