We played at Kensington Oval last month as part of our NewcastleLashers Barbados Cricket Tour 2015, and what a treat it was. This is our second tour to Barbados and the second time I have had the privilege to stand on the field, the facilities are second to none, I was able to roam about the Oval, checking out areas...

For the princely sum of 5 barbados dollars I got a seat behind the bowler's arm for the day . The stadium is very comfortable : good seats ,good facilities ,clean ,friendly ,child friendly and...

It is possible to walk from the terminal, however the route is not signposted, the... More

A lovely ground with lots of history. You go round every part of the stadium. We luckily got there for the last tour of the day and had a very friendly, informative tour guide just to ourselves although at some points we found it hard to understand his accent. An extra bonus was seeing garry (garfield) sobers as he helped... More

If you are a cricket fan Kensington Oval is definitely worth a visit. The stands are pretty old but this is one international ground that allows you to walk out on the field. The tour guide was informative and Joel Garner was around saying good bye to the young Barbados team who were heading on a tour.

As an MCC member, who loves his visits to Lords (& has taken friends to the excellent official guided tour there), wondered whether this would live up to the standard. But it surely did. They were hosting an event for ""Cropover" festival sponsors, & at first were not sure if we could be fitted in. But then allocated a charming... More

My wife, a keen cricket fan, was thrilled with her trip around the oval. Three friends enjoyed a very informative tour with a relaxed and charming and knowledgeable guide. The tour, approximately an hour was long enough to imagine the atmosphere on match days, discuss the greats and stand behind the chairs used by the commentators. ( Your chance to... More
