Lord's Cricket Ground, commonly known as Lord's, is a cricket venue in St John's Wood, London. Named after its founder, Thomas Lord, it is owned by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and is the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), the European Cricket Council (ECC) and, until August 2005, the International Cricket Council (ICC). Lord's is widely referred to as the Home of Cricket and is home to the world's oldest sporting museum.
Lord's today is not on its original site; it is the third of three grounds that Lord established between 1787 and 1814. His first ground, now referred to as Lord's Old Ground, was where Dorset Square now stands. His second ground, Lord's Middle Ground, was used from 1811 to 1813 before being abandoned to make way for the construction through its outfield of the Regent's Canal. The present Lord's ground is about 250 yards (230 m) north-west of the site of the Middle Ground. The ground can hold 30,000 spectators. Proposals are being developed to increase capacity and amenity. As of December 2013, it was proposed to redevelop the ground at a cost of around £200 million over a 14-year period.
The current ground celebrated its two hundredth anniversary in 2014. To mark the occasion, on 5 July an MCC XI captained by Sachin Tendulkar played a Rest of the World XI led by Shane Warne in a 50 overs match.

This is the world's most iconic cricket stadium. Busy on a T20 Blast evening but well marshalled and if you accept that it will take a little while to get in from and longer to get out to the Underground Stations it's a great experience. Seats are comfortable and there are good views around the ground as well as 3 large screens to watch replays of key events and to keep in touch with the scores. You're allowed to take in food and drinks (the amount of alcohol per person is limited) or you can use the on site catering. I found it to have a friendly atmosphere with families, groups of friends and work colleagues meeting up for and enjoying the match and the party atmosphere. Highly recommended as an evening out.
Great experience. Loved it. It is worth to spend the money for the ticket. A great, must have experience if you are a true cricket fan. Tour group was not much big ( around 10-20 people) and you can ask questions and clarify things.
