Lord’s Cricket Ground is the definitive home of cricket in London, and is situated in St. John’s Wood.

Established in 1814, this 28,000-seater venue hosts international test matches and major local competitions. Lord’s is also where the oldest sports museum is, the MCC Museum contains the precious Ashes urn from 1882. 2014 marked its 200-year anniversary. The present Lord’s is the third incarnation.

If you are not visiting for a sporting event, you can still tour the cricket ground year-round. Tickets to the tour include entry to the MCC Museum. Tours last 100 minutes and run 7 days a week. You will see the Honours Board, sit in the dressing rooms, enter the Long Room, and of course see the Ashes Urn.

The Lord’s Tour is very popular, especially during the summer months, and tours are often fully booked in advance. Prices are £20 for adults, £15 for over 60s, £12 for children (5 to 15) and students, and £49 for a family. Tours do not run on major match days.

The MCC Museum is open on all match days for visitors with a ticket for that day’s play.
