Where is Lord’s Cricket Ground
Where is Lord’s? This iconic ground is in the affluent St John’s Wood area of north London, in the NW8 postcode. There is a trendy high street with boutique shops, great restaurants and small wine bars nearby. Inside the grounds there are places to eat and drink, including a tavern serving cold beer and snacks and a garden restaurant serving three-course meals and afternoon tea. Expect to pay a premium, so if money is tight, don’t arrive hungry! Lord’s is the most famous ground for cricket in the world and home to the Ashes Urn.
It’s the home venue of England’s National Team, which plays their test matches and one-days at this ground. Popular is a behind the scene stadium tour where you can learn more about the club’s history. The Tour includes a look at the Pavilion, Long Room, Mound/Grand Stand, Dressing Rooms, the award winning Investec Media Centre and the Ashes. Tours run daily all year round and last around 1hour and 40 minutes. There are no tours on major match days or on preparation days. Within the grounds, you can also visit the MCC Museum which houses over 400 years of cricket history.
Staying in St John’s Wood District
When it comes to match days, there is no parking in the ground itself and local carparks are full quickly. Expect to pay around £35 for a day’s parking when there is a big event and to make sure of a place you will have to book and pay in advance. This makes finding a cheap place to stay near Lord’s a good option if you want an enjoyable day with little stress.
Having said that, budget hotels in this part of London are not easy to find but reserving your room in advance will give you more choice. There are plenty of luxurious 5 star hotels in and around Regents Park, which is walking distance away. For low-priced accommodation look towards the edges of London and around City Airport where there are good transport links to Lords.
Around the city there are many places to eat, so you do not need to book a hotel wth breakfast or evening meals if you want to save money. Usually within a few streets you will find a place to eat to suit your wallet and tastes. There are a few B&Bs on offer and some serviced apartments which can be booked as holiday lets which are especially nice if there is a group of you looking to stay together.
A very popular hotel is 4 star Danubius Hotel Regents Park. This accommodation overlooks Lord’s Cricket Ground and Regent’s Park and is situated only a 5-minute walk from St. John’s Wood London Underground Station. Euston in Central London and Marylebone Railway Stations are within easy reach, as are St. Pancras for the Eurostar and Paddington for the Heathrow Express train service. Buses from Stansted Airport and Luton Airport stop directly opposite the hotel, at the bus stop.
Things to do near Lord’s
If you are in the area for a few days, spend time enjoying the local sites. Just around the corner is the Abbey Road Studios where Beatles fans can take their picture on the famous zebra crossing. London Zoo is just a few streets away and the beautiful Regents Park is a great place to visit especially when the weather is fine.
