    Travelling up to see the Rugby this weekend at Twickenham with a few friends.
    3 of us (males) will stay and have booked a hotel in Feltham Hounslow due to cost and ease of getting to the stadium.

    We will stay in Twickenham after the game (Fiji v Barbarians) and head to the hotel late at night.

    Research shows it’s not the safest part of the world. The hotel is 9 minutes walk from Feltham station.
    Does anyone know if it’s safe to walk or is the station big enough to have regular taxis waiting?

    As 3 lads you’ll be fine, if you go looking for a fight you’ll probably get one, but that could happen most places, but just keep to yourselves and you’ll be fine. Felthams not the best part of the world but it doesn’t feel dangerous (I’ve stayed at the travelodge there a few times arriving late at night and it’s fine, be aware of your surroundings like you should be anywhere and it’ll probably be uneventful.

    If it’s the travelodge it’s more like 5 min walk, round a pedestrianised area so walking just as quick as a taxi.

    There is a taxi rank at the station, but between train and taxi and Uber from Twickenham might be better value between 3.

    I've often stopped at the Feltham Travelodge after attending matches at Twickenham. It's not the prettiest or most exciting part of London but it's only a couple of stops away and I've never had a problem.

    If you want a few drinks after the game I would head into Richmond as Twickenham itself gets too busy on matchdays and there is nothing in Feltham apart from a McDonalds and Wetherspoons.

    The hotel is the St Giles Hotel.
    Looks like a one way system as walking is quicker than taxi judging by google maps.

    Thanks Doshwaster and Duckyduck

    The last time I was in Feltham was a few months ago and they had the whole area around the railway station dug up for roadworks.
