Lord's Cricket Ground

Lord’s Cricket Ground is often described as the sport’s spiritual headquarters, hosting national competitions and international test matches. Although legendary, the stadium doesn’t have any royal relations as its name may suggest — it’s named after Thomas Lord, a professional cricketer and the venue’s founder.

Of course the best way to experience this site is by attending on of the regular matches as one of the 28,000 spectators the stadium can hold. But even without a live game underway, the Lord’s Cricket Ground is worth a visit. The eight stands and media center circling the pitch all have distinctive features, the most notable being the Victorian Pavilion with its famous Long Room. It’s so long, in fact, that cricket player David Steele supposedly once got lost on his walk from the dressing room to the cricket field and ended up in the basement toilets.  During matches, the pavilion has a strict dress code and is only open to members of the Marylebone Cricket Club and the players using the dressing rooms.   

The media center is especially noteworthy, as it was specifically commissioned for the Cricket World Cup in 1999 and won the Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize for its outstanding architecture.

Practical Info

The closest tube station is St. John’s Wood on the Jubilee line, a five-minute walk from the stadium. Visitors can also take the train to the Marylebone station and then walk roughly 10 minutes. Parking is unavailable on major match days and on the three days beforehand, so public transit is recommended. Hourly tours of the grounds take place from 10 a.m. to 2 or 3 p.m., although times may vary on match days.
