    The "Home of Cricket" is well worth a visit
    My wife and I throughly enjoyed our 1 and a half hour tour of Lords. Our host, John, was brilliant, showing great empathy with our "international" group, as well as being informative and humorous. Having had some initial time before the tour started looking at the exhibits in the museum, John took us to key areas around the stadium, including both dressing rooms and the media centre. As the ground was being prepared for the men's Ashes test match, understandably we were not allowed on the field of play; and, as had been advertised on the website, due to a function, we were not allowed access to the Long Room to take the batsman's walk from the dressing room to the pitch. Neither detracted from our positive experience. Thank you, John !

    Lord's tour
    We went for Lord's tour, our guide Jeff and his son Ryan told us all the beautiful memories about Lord's. Tour is awesome and full of fun. Stadium is all about tradition and awesomeness. London visit with Lord's tour is mandatory for cricket enthusiast.

    Great ground and atmosphere but food and drink could be improved
    Saw the womens ashes twenty20. Great atmosphere, despite not full. Great game despite reduced overs from rain. Lots of small stores in the ground which was helpful and well stocked. Selection of food was a bit lacking - lots of fried american style food. Similarly struggled for ale, only found canned craft.

    Cricket lovers MUST DO tour
    Booked this tour for my cricket loving hubby and the look on his face throughout was thanks enough. Joseph our guide was lovely and knowledgeable providing lots of information about this historic ground and cricket club as well as insights into where the players liked to sit when playing at the ground. Taking in the Pavilion, Long Room, both visitors and home dressing rooms, the JP Morgan Media centre and into the famous stands this tour does not disappoint. Book early to avoid disappointment as some days the tours don’t run, or access to all areas isn’t available. An absolute must for any sport fan, particularly if you are a cricket lover.

    Great but security need to calm it down
    We visited Lord’s for a session at the training nets followed by a tour and cream tea in the Lord’s Tavern. The training session was excellent and the tour guide was really informative. However the visit was slightly let down by the over-officious security on site. We had asked if we could leave a car in the car park after training which we were told in advance was fine, but when we left the car there the security woman made a big fuss about it which was unnecessary as the car park was completely empty. Then when we came to leave the tour the security guard wouldn’t let us wait outside the shop for our friends, we had to wait on the street.

    The Mecca of Cricket
    It's a dream to be at the Lords and admire its beauty. Full of cricket history, the guide had amazing things to tell. The Boards which depict the names of all centurions at Lord, have names of the top 3 scorers missing as none of them could score a century at Lords. Same for the 3 best bowlers. The original 'Ashes', Bat, Gangauly's famous jersey and many such items are at display in the museum.

    Well worth the Fee
    A very enjoyable tour round Lords. Our guide, Jeff, was full of information, very friendly and humorous. The tour takes just over 90 minutes but you go everywhere you want to, changing room, long room, media centre etc. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable and well worth the £30pp we paid - a tour even non cricket lovers I think would also enjoy. We also happened to bump into ex-England cricketer Mike Gatting which was an added bonus

    Lords - Tour
    I bought this your for my 14 year old son who is cricket daft. He was so excited and loved every second of the experience. We were lucky enough to get assigned Jeff as our guide, Jeff was so passionate about everything to do with lords and what a credit to the team he is. Thank you Jeff for your your, knowledge and humour throughout. We loved every second. Louise and matthew from Sunderland

    A Day to Cherish Forever
    It was an emotional and unique experience for us - a journey by time machine way back to 1983 when Kapil Dev had created history on this very ground. Within a span of two hours, our tour guide, an extremely amiable and pleasant personality, covered the history of the place and touched upon the memorable moments created at Lords. It was an experience beyond dreams when we walked through the corridors and sat in the dressing rooms which have been frequented by stalwarts. Adequate time was given to take photos at different venues to relive the past and cherish the present. As we scanned through the names of players drafted for their remarkable performance(s) at Lords, we went through a roller coaster of emotions and realised how fortunate we were to be a part of this immersive experience. The tour ended with the buying of souvenirs, clinging onto the golden memories.

    Home of cricket
    The Lords tour is a must do for any cricket fan. Tour starts in museum which is full of amazing cricket history and the crown jewel The Ashes urn. Then you are guided to different parts of the ground including dressing rooms , long room, media section and many different views of this iconic sporting venue. Tour guides Tom and Jay were amazing and managed to make my non cricket fan wife have a great experience. Brilliant tour.

Loved it!

Day two of the South African Test, great seats, well organised entry, very helpful stewards.

Only one downside, you can't get get a decent head on the ale from the bar.

But apart from that, well done everyone!

If you love Cricket, this tour is an absolute must! Our tour started at 14.30 and we sadly left the Ground some 2 hours later.
We started at the Museum, the amount of truly historic items could keep you entertained for hours before moving on to savour the unbelievable privilege of being in the Longroom, home and away dressing rooms (where the honours board are located), the Media Centre and concluded with being allowed pitchside seats for the conclusion of informative tour.
Our fellow Lancashire tour guide was funny, informative and knowledgeable about everything to do with Lords and the time literally flew by. Thanks to all involved…it was a great day that surpassed, by far, my expectations.

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.

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 🏏🏏😊😊

Excellent , detailed yet entertaining tour of Lord's Cricket Ground. Strange to see the place empty of players and spectators and feel as though we had the entire ground to ourselves. Fascinating visit to the museum, then walk through the Long room and both the home and away dressing rooms, getting to stand on the balconies. We also visited the stands and the media centre. Plenty of photo opportunities. Interesting even for those who are not cricket fans.

Shout out to our tour guide Bob, who made the tour extra special. Fantastic knowledge, answered all questions and quickly established a rapport with each member of the group, coming out with facts relevant to where we came from and our special heroes and interests.

You would probably get the most of this tour by going on a non-match day as we did, as access to the special areas is easier, but do make sure you go back another time to watch a match and soak up the match-day atmosphere.

Unexpected Christmas present and a very welcome surprise. Ticket included a wander round the museum followed by a guided tour of the players' rooms in the pavilion, grandstand and press box.

Very informative and so much history. Hope to return to watch a match at some point.

We have been to Lords many times and it is certainly top of its game as a venue. Good seating, food and staff. But in this visit to watch The Hundred final we did take away two negatives. First to note there was a young couple openly vaping e cigarettes near to our seats which was ignored by staff and rather unpleasant for all nearby and should have been enforced. And second was the drinks pricing. Lords is of course known for its high prices generally (reference fifth day pricing policy !) but £10.50 for a Pimms ? Really ? Perhaps interesting to note that at least two groups near to us had conversations about the price of food and drink. So still not that inclusive, even for The Hundred, and for that reason four stars not five. But it is a great venue..

This was brought for me as a Christmas present, we had tickets for the guided tour (Gladstone Small) and a tour guide (an Australian lady (forgot her name which is a shame)) with lunch in the players dinning room,
We started in the museum and Gladstone turned up at 1030 and talked through some of the exhibits we then toured half of the ground including the players dressing rooms committee room (where Douglas Jardine presented the ashes to the committee after the famous Bodyline series) and the world famous Long Room Both our tour guides were very informative with Gladstone adding lots of funny story's of his life playing for England and his time at lords.
The dinning room experience was great the food to die for, again some funny story's from the catering manager and what she has to deal with, with the demanding players.
Finally a visit to the media centre again very informative.
I would say overall all the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and although not cheep as a cricket lover was a magical experience and one of the best days out I have ever had
