Visited the Kensington Oval with my non cricket fan wife. Glad to say we both enjoyed the visit. It was very quiet and we had our own guide. It felt great to be there having seen the Oval so many times on TV, and even better to actually walk on the playing field like so many great cricketers have in... More

Whilst in Barbados we called here. Lucky we did. There was a local game on between 2 college sides. My wife and son are serious cricket fans so this was a bonus. To be honest I also enjoyed the atmosphere and the locals were really friendly. There was no charge to get in but there were stalls to buy food... More

We spent a week in Barbados before going to St. Lucia - there were no matches on that week! We did the tour instead - it was really good to go around this famous ground. We got some great photos although it would have been better had a match been in play! We got to St. Lucia and saw the... More

Although not advertised on the website the tour and visitors centre was shut due to a match. As we turn to leave we were asked if we still wanted to go in and see the match. It was free of charge. A great experience with a wonderful atmosphere.

You can do a tour when there is no game on. We walked in through a gate as we didn't realise you had to pay for a tour. After some great pics on the ground and stands we were asked to leave! Others said the tour is well worth it - just contact security or office as we should have... More

Having no interest in cricket i really wasnt that bothered about going to the match, Barbados Tridents v St Lucia Zoots in the T20. However, having found the ticket office (a tiny building which needs more signposts and only takes cash), we went along to please the cricket lovers in the party. So glad we did. An amazing atmosphere, great... More

Went to see Barbados v Guyana in the CPL and made the mistake of not getting a ticket before we went. Thought it would be ok to just pitch up and buy a ticket on the evening, WRONG! It was a sellout and could only get a $50 USD ticket in the 'party area'. So took that option as didn't... More

Having discovered there were some T20 CPL (Caribbean Premier League) matches on during our visit, I endeavoured to get tickets, as we wanted to see the Kensington Oval and had watched T20 before in England. We were lucky enough to see Barbados Tridents and although the booking and ticket collection process was a little tedious, once we were in our... More
