The Oval Cricket Ground was built in 1845, and in 1880 hosted the first international test match between England and Australia. To this day, the final Test match of the English season is traditionally played here. The Oval has a seating capacity of 23,500.

The Oval was also the location of the first ever international football match in 1870 between England and Scotland.

Tours of the Oval are available. During the tour you will step foot in the players’ dressing rooms, see where the players train, enter the press box, and access the Corinthian roof terrace with its stunning views of London. Tours take place on Saturdays at 11:00 on non-match days. Additional mid-week tour dates are available around key international fixtures. A full ground tour lasts approximately 90 minutes. Tickets are £15 per adult, £7.50 for children and concessions, with a family ticket costing £35. If booking in person, The Oval accepts cash only. Tickets may also be pre-booked online.
