Do not miss to visit this "The Home of Cricket" if you are an ardent cricket lover and happen to be in London. There is guided tour arranged by stadium office which is approximately for 100 minutes. The tour guide provides good explanation of all the places in stadium which we can visit and take photographs/video. The tour includes visit to Stands, Cricketer's dressing room, Commentator's box, TV/Press room, shopping, etc. A wonderful experience!

We joined a tour of the Ground just after the Olympics, and I really think it is a must do for any cricket fans visiting London.

Our tour was packed with Aussies (us included), which is expected as its the only chance us Aussies get to set eyes on the original Ashes trophy!

The tour guide was excellent, if not a little too infatuated with the English cricket team, but nonetheless excellent with his mix of humour and knowledge of the history of the ground.

The tour included a visit to the members dining room, the home and away dressing rooms, the media centre and of course, a viewing of the Ashes. Well worth the visit.

This was booked for my partner as part of a birthday treat visiting London and WOW - from the very beginning to the end this tour was excellent. We started in the museum and was introduced to our guide and what she didn't know about cricket was nobodys business.In our party there were myself and partner who are British several people from India, one guy from New Zealand and one from Australia and two people from Spain.The banter between everyone was brilliant especially when we were told facts and figures on cricket matches. We were shown the Long Room which is steeped in history and you really felt part of the MCC. We were taken into the dressing rooms and allowed out on to the balconies and told where everyone liked to sit and stories about characters from international matches which encourgaed the banter between us all. We then went to watch some real tennis being played and that was interesting.From there we went out into a stand and then the most amazing thing for us was going into the media centre - wow what an experience and a view and you could soak up the atmosphere and then the tour finishes at the shop which has a good range of cricketing related products to buy. All in all a wonderful tour £18 adults and £9 concessions bookable in advance. A note - with our tour tickets we were sent a voucher for 10% off at the Lord's Tavern so we took advantage of this and had a lovely lunch in there where the staff were really helpful and provided good quick service with the food being 'pub menu' but excellent quality. Worth avisit.

There are some places in this world which truly welcomes you as soon as you are in its vicinity.
Lord's is one such place. As soon as you get down at the St. John's Wood Tube station you can feel the excitement.
It is a 10 minute walk from the tube station to the ground. The entry to the ground is from the Grace Gate where after a two minute walk you get to the reception/museum. On paying the tour fee, the well informed tour guide takes you through the museum. In our group, there was a mix of people from all countries. As per the guide, in our group we also had his first Sri Lanka tourists. The Tour includes a look at the Pavilion (as an Indian was thrilled to see the famous balcony from where Ganguly waved his shirt), Long Room, Mound/Grand Stand, Dressing Rooms, the award winning J P Morgan Media Centre (was shocked when I came to know that it's construction was done by a boat making company) , Museum (was a delight to see the portraits of your favourite cricketers, irrespective of their nationality) and the Ashes (a detailed history). The tour guide allows a photo session on our way to the media centre for 10 mins. Since I visited this place on my B'Day, it really became a special day for me.
All in all, a must go for any cricket lover. If you are not a one, you'll become one after visiting this place.

This is the second time that I have this tour (with the first time being about about 10 years ago), and the tour is still fantastic! It lasts about 1 1/2 hours, and goes through great depth of the ground, from how it all started, to the changing rooms, long room, the secred urn and the media centre. You can ask questions as you go along, and the guide is very imormative. If you have some time to spare then make sure you pay a visit here. You also get a voucher for 10% off for the tavern pub next door to the ground
