England will finish their campaign against Ireland a week later playing for the first time at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on Friday 16 March.
"The Six Nations is one of the flagship competitions in the women’s game," said England head coach Simon Middleton. "It’s a highly competitive tournament and we always encounter a tough level of competition
"It’s great to be back playing at the Stoop again and also getting back out on the road for our last fixture in the Ricoh Arena.
“While it was an incredible achievement to take home a Grand Slam Championship last year, going into 2018 that counts for nothing, this is a new squad, a new challenge and we are determined to go out and win the competition once again.”
