Lords tour and dinning experience in the players dinning room, what a fantastic 3 hours for any cricket lover, and even those with little cricket interest. Very knowledgeable guide who took the tour around all parts of the ground, including The Long Room, players dressing rooms, media centre, scorers box and inside the Museum. The food served in the players dinning room was excellent, 3 courses plus wine, beer or soft drinks.

Couldn't recommend this day out enough.

We went on the tour of Lord's with an excellent guide. It look over one and a half hours but time flew. Before we started we had time to visit the museum. I would have liked to be able to spend more time here because many of the exhibits merited further study. We visited the Long Room (which is very long), the players' changing rooms (surprisingly old fashioned), stood on the small balconies (very small) and had a good overall view of the ground including the substantial work going on at the other end of the ground to replace the Compton and Edrich stands. I hope they've finished the first phase by August 1 because we have tickets for day 3 of the Pakistan test! Our Australian-born guide was a fount of information and stories and made certain that there was plenty to interest our mixed group of nationalities (SA, Australian, Indian, Pakistani, English). A really enjoyable visit and highly recommended even if you are not a dedicated cricket fan.

We took this tour in March, 2020, which off-season in the UK. Stadium was going through some construction but it still looked amazing. Even my wife is not a Cricket fan (she’s American), she had a great time, learning the history. In the tour, you can see the museum, go to the dressing rooms, VIP areas, including iconic Long Room. What blew my mind was some outstanding portraits inside. Our guide was very knowledgeable and that helped us to learn some amazing facts. I have been die-hard cricket fan since I was a kid, but this tour is great for anyone. Even if you don’t know much about cricket, you could enjoy the tour. After the tour, we went to the gift and bought some. Gift shop is small but they do have some quality stuff at a reasonable price.

What a fantastic day we had . The atmosphere was electric everyone was so welcoming. We had great seats with great views. The fireworks at the start of the matches we a fantastic surprise and the ones at the end of the men’s finals for the the present we’re amazing. Great idea with the disco and the competition’s for the children in between the overs . The cricket was so entertaining and first class and had us on the edge of our seats . It really was a great family day out and great value for money. There are plenty of food outlets to cater for everyone and everyone’s taste. Prices about right. Lords really did think of everything for everyone and what a great competition and really has put cricket up there for entertainment and hopefully will get more youngsters involved with the wonderful game of cricket and get them playing the sport. Can’t wait for next year. There were plenty of toilets all around the ground and water stations to refill your water bottles. Even getting out after the celebrations was very easy considering the amount of people there. Thank you Lords for a fantastic family day out at a truly fantastic place. Britain should be proud of you 🏏🏏😊😊

Found 2 tickets the night before for the last day of the test - £20 each so quite a bargain. There was a long queue to get in so I missed someone singing Jerusalem. I never realised how shabby the ground were even including the hallowed MCC Club House. The seating was full and views great although not as good as on TV but then you miss the atmosphere which is fun. The plastic chairs were not uncomfortable but it is extremely annoying to have to keep standing at the end of every over to allow people with large trays of beers to pass. Food is available from a selection of cabins but don't expect haute cuisine. Of course if it rains you will get wet unless you stay inside the bleak concrete stadium but note that some of the seats are also under cover. An interesting day out but it helps to know the rules of cricket.

If you are a fan of cricket, this tour is a must. It takes in the Pavilion, Long Room, changing rooms the Mound Stand and the media centre Our guide (the Australian lady whose name I have regrettably forgotten) was friendly and very knowledgeable about Lord’s and cricket in general. Lord’s itself is steeped with cricket history from artefacts, cricket kit, equipment paintings, photographs and much more including the fabled Ashes urn itself. A lot of walking is involved but lift are available if required.

My only slight criticism is that the tour was too short. There’s so much to see and do that it could easily last twice as long. It’s good value at only £26 too. I would highly recommend this tour, it’s outstanding.

My 12 year old has gone on a school trip today to watch the evening match .He's taken plenty of money to get a meal at Lord's because they had been in London all day. He messaged me to say all food is CARD ONLY payments. How can they expect all the kids visiting to have debit cards. Just ridiculous for such a famous large venue.
I expect because they are so hungry they won't be interested in the match.
