Tours of Lord's

 

On each tour a dedicated Guide will show you around one of the most famous sporting venues in the world. Lasting approximately 1 hour 40 minutes the tour starts in the MCC Museum, home of the famous Ashes urn.

 

The museum brings the fascinating story of cricket to life. Paintings, photographs and artefacts, covering 400 years of cricket history, reveal the game's development from a rural pastime to a modern, increasingly international sport. Precious exhibits include the Wisden Trophy and the tiny, delicate and irreplaceable Ashes urn. The museum also boasts bats, balls and kit donated by great players including Mahela Jayawardene, Glenn McGrath, Rahul Dravid, Paul Collingwood and Shane Warne - as well as from past greats such as Victor Trumper, Jack Hobbs and Don Bradman.

 

As the tour goes on you will walk through the heart of the Pavilion to the famed Long Room, both a cricket-watching room and a cricket art gallery - with portraits of the game's best-known figures, including WG Grace. The Long Room has a unique atmosphere, panoramic views of the pitch and is where players make their way to and from the 'hallowed turf'. Almost any famous cricketer you can think of has made that long walk at least once in their career.

 

Other highlights include the players' Dressing Rooms with the renowned Lord's Honours Boards, providing a lasting reminder of exceptional batting and bowling performances in Lord's Tests.

 

Additional attractions at Lord's include the Tennis Court where Real Tennis, 'the game of kings' (famously enjoyed by King Henry VIII), is still played, and the MCC Indoor Cricket School - where present and future Test and county stars hone their skills (helped by video technology, HawkEye analysis, expert coaching and 100mph bowling machines).

 

The Tour also gives visitors a chance to admire some outstanding architecture. As well as its great history, Lord's can also boast some of the most innovative modern architecture in London. In addition to the famous Grand Stand and the award-winning Mound Stand, Lord's has the futuristic Lord's Media Centre, which was acclaimed in 2001 as one of 'The Fifty Best Buildings in Britain'.

 

The tour takes in all these great buildings. Admire the unrivalled view from the Media Centre, enjoyed by our guests from Sky Sports and Test Match Special to The Daily Telegraph - and many more! After taking all that in, the tour ends at the Lord's Shop (described as "outstanding" by The Times in its 'Good Ground Guide') where you can pick up an exclusive souvenir of a special day at 'The Home of Cricket'
