“Go behind the scenes at the Home of Cricket and admire legends past and present! Follow in the footsteps of heroes through the Long Room and see the famous Ashes Urn, Prudential Trophy and Cricket Games Exhibition in the MCC Museum”. ~ Tour of Lords Cricket
Owned by the prestigious Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the acclaimed ‘home of cricket’ hosts the world’s most important cricketing events including Test matches and one day internationals. Several Tours run each day. Every 100 minutes a Tour of Lords Cricket departs from the MCC Museum, and all visitors should arrive via the Grace Gate, St John’s Wood Road at least 15 minutes before the Tour start time.
The MCC Museum was opened by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh in 1953 and is one of the oldest sporting museums in the world.
Its collection, which was begun in 1864, spans the full history of cricket from its emergence as a major sport in the early 18th century, to the modern age of Twenty20 and the IPL. It includes material relating to the greatest players and events but also the grassroots, community cricket clubs which form the bedrock of the game. The Museum’s most famous exhibit is the original Ashes urn, a personal gift to England captain the Hon. Ivo Bligh in 1882/83, later donated to MCC by his widow in 1928.
Following in the footsteps of cricketing legends, walk through the Long Room, and imagine yourself striding out to bat at a Test match like the greats of the game have done before you. Take a look at the honors board, and sit on one of the dressing room’s most sought-after seats – usually reserved for England players or visiting Test teams only.
