The home of Hampshire Cricket, host to England Internationals and arena-scale concerts from the likes of Oasis, REM, and The Who. A new era has begun with a £48 million development including the opening of two new stands; which boast contemporary architecture and luxurious new conference and event facilities, making it one of the most exciting venues on the South Coast. With the imminent construction of a 4-star hotel to the Northern End of the venue, it will be the only Model Test match ground in the country as defined by the ECB. The Ageas Bowl is available to host business meetings and conferences all year round. Located on the outskirts of Southampton it benefits from exceptional links to the motorway networks and public transportation. So whatever your business or leisure requirements, we invite you to consider the fantastic opportunities at The Ageas Bowl, a relaxed atmosphere combined with spectacular architecture, professional service and a beautiful setting.

This is a lovely cricket ground. Roomy seats along with ample standing areas make for a great night out. Only marked average because on the night of our T20 game they were using the furthest strip opposite the Shane Warne stand so the boundary rope was already 10 meters away and it was tough to see. Also we paid extra... More

This is a great now hotel with high standard and if you get an inside room you are getting a view of the cricket pitch. The executive lounge has a good food and drink selection and beer and wine 6-8pm. The staff are nice, friendly and accommondating

Great ground for watching T20 cricket but access and parking is shocking. No traffic control from the M27 and £10 to park in an un mown field is frankly a rip off. We travelled from Basingstoke to the T20 match versus Sussex and spent more time in the car than watching the cricket !?

Came for a T20 blast match and it was great fun. This is a lovely stadium that is both modern and has character. Sit to the East side to be with the livelier fans!

What a gorgeous venue to watch cricket in. All you can see is trees and greenery (when not watching the cricket). Makes a change from those built up inner city stadiums.....plan your travel to and from the ground and you will be fine. Come on ECB support Hampshire with an A list test match.
