The London Sevens is played annually as part of the IRB Sevens World Series for international rugby sevens (seven a side version of rugby union). The 2007 competition, which took place on 26 and 27 May, was held at Twickenham and was part of the 2006-07 IRB Sevens World Series.

New Zealand were overall winners, defeating defending series champions and current 2006-07 leaders Fiji 29-7 in the Cup final. However, the Fijians put themselves in good position to win the overall season crown; they only need make the Cup semifinals in the final event, the Edinburgh Sevens, to successfully defend their season title.
