Lord’s – the home of English cricket Lord’s cricket ground The Grandstand at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London The Grandstand at Lord’s

Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) – more commonly known as Lord’s – is the home of English cricket.

It started life in 1787 when the White Conduit Club felt their Islington playing fields were getting trampled by too many members of the public. They asked the wealthy Thomas Lord if he would mind finding them an alternative piece of land, and he came up with a plot near Regent’s Park.

They renamed themselves the Marylebone Cricket Club shortly after, and played their first match in 1788.

A mighty rent increase in 1811 forced them to up sticks to Marylebone Bank, and five years later they settled in St. John’s Wood.

Guided tour, and MCC Museum

If you’re a cricket fan then you will absolutely love the 90-minute tour. The Long Room is the heart of the place, filled with portraits of the game’s greats. You can also take a peek inside the player’s changing rooms, and visit the MCC Museum – tracing 400 years of cricketing history.

Pride of place goes to the original Ashes trophy, a few inches high and filled with the remains of a burnt ball. (The MCC craftily claims that it’s too fragile to be moved – so it will remain in English hands no matter how many times the Aussies beat us!)

 
  •  Guest – “Good morning, can you tell me if there is disabled parking in the vicinity of lords, I am attending tomorrow for the test match and do not know if it is easier to drive (parking permitted) of take the train.”
  • Admin – “There isn’t any at lords itself. The closest NCP car park with a disabled bay is this one (but it’s only got 1 disabled space): NCP.co.uk/‍find-a-car-park/‍car-parks/‍London-lanark-road/‍. You could try pre-booking the space online before you go. Theres some more info on the lords website which might help you - lords.org/‍visiting/‍coming-to-lords/‍lords-for-disabled-people/‍#parking.”
