The Home of Cricket
Founded by cricketing pioneer Thomas Lord, the stadium has existed in its current location since 1814. Lord's Cricket Ground staged the inaugural first-class match, which was hosted by Thomas Lord and his Marylebone Cricket Club. An incredible Victorian-era pavilion remains as the striking feature of the stadium, boasting an iconic Long Room and Honours Board that contains the names of every player to have scored a century or five-wicket haul. Redeveloped over the years to host 28,000 spectators, it is home to one of the best atmospheres in world sport. An indication of its ability to blend modern facilities in to the historic arena, a futuristic-looking media centre was erected in 1999 and celebrated for its architectural brilliance. Lord's Cricket Ground is located approximately 2 miles northwest of the centre of London and is closest to St John's Wood Station on the Jubilee line of the London Underground. The ground is also home to the Marylebone Cricket Club Museum, the oldest sports museum in the world and well worth a visit during your trip. Don't miss the chance to buy or sell Lord's Cricket Ground tickets for a chance to visit the iconic venue.
