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.

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.
