What You Can Expect
Your 1.5-hour cricket-themed tour starts with a leisurely walk around the ground’s Pavilion. The distinctive Grade II-listed building notably houses the dressing rooms, privileged seats for members of MCC and, of course, the famous Long Room where players walk through en route to the cricket field.
Following in the footsteps of cricketing legends, walk through the Long Room, and imagine yourself striding out to bat at a Test match like the greats of the game have done before you. Take a look at the honors board, and sit on one of the dressing room's most sought-after seats – usually reserved for England players or visiting Test teams only.
As your guide entertains you with fascinating facts and anecdotes about England’s cricketing history, stroll to the MCC Museum on the other side of the cricket ground. Here you’ll see the iconic Ashes Urn that was given to Ivo Bligh, captain of the English cricket team in 1883, and learn how the term “bringing home the ashes” came to be coined.
Your tour ends inside the J.P Morgan's Media Centre, a futuristic building that was commissioned in time of the 1999 Cricket World Cup. Awarded the Stirling Prize for architecture in the same year, this beautiful space hosts Sky Sports presenters and Test match broadcasts.
Loved this tour excellent guides and a must do tour in london five stars
It was terrific. You need to have an interest in cricket/sports of course but to experience what the players do when they go out to play on the hallowed turf was pretty special. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and had a laugh with us all.
