Search for cheap hotels near Lords Cricket Ground
Cricket does have a reputation for being a rather upper-crust sport. It's likely that it has something to do with the cucumber sandwiches, the lengthy history of the game or the glasses of Pimms that accompany the sport, but it could also be that one of the London homes of cricket, Lord's Cricket Ground (the other is situated in Oval south London), is housed in the rather affluent St John's Wood area of the city, The ground isn't named after ennobled peers, but is in fact named for its founder Thomas Lord, a professional cricketer who played during the 18th century.
"Two of the UK's most exclusive school"
Lord's current ground lays 250 metres north of its original site, but the first game was played on the Middle Ground in 1814. The Eton vs. Harrow match, two of the UK's most exclusive schools is an annual fixture at Lord's, which began in 1805, when hell-raising poet Lord Byron was playing for Harrow. Today, Lord's hosts Test Matches (two every summer), one-day Internationals, Middlesex Home Games and Middlesex's Home Twenty20 Games.
The impressive ground is situated adjacent to the north west corner of Regents Park which is 3km north of Oxford Street. The best way to reach the venue is by the local St Johns Wood underground station which is a 5 minute walk north of the ground and is serviced by the Jubilee Line. Car parking in the immediate area is almost impossible.
"the original Victorian Pavilion"
The stadium has been largely rebuilt in the 20th century, and the main features include nine stands, the original Victorian Pavilion, Warner Stand, Grand Stand, Compton Stand, Media Stand, Edrich Stand, Mound Stand, Tavern Stand and Allen Stand; the Old Father Time wedding vane; the Media Centre, built using boat-building technology, with a broadcasting box and seating for over 100 journalists; the Field, which has a trademark slope; and the Grace Gates, named for cricketer W.G. Grace.
Lord's has been privy to over 100 Test matches, with games between international teams from Australia, South Africa, the West Indies, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. If you are a huge cricket fan, you can learn more about Lord's history and the history of cricket in the UK in the MCC Museum, one of the oldest sports museums in the world. The museum contains cricket kits worn by famous players, curiosities from the game, artifacts and paintings and work from the 'MCC Young Cricket Photographer' competition. The stadium also holds baseball games and archery competitions.
"The famous Abbey Road zebra crossing"
Aside from being the perfect place to acceptably yell 'Owzat!’ St John's Wood is a fantastic place to stay during your London visit. St John's Wood has a village feel with picturesque houses and green spaces. It is largely residential, but you can see the famous Abbey Road zebra crossing the Beatles posed on for their eponymous album and walk to Regent's Park in 5 minutes. The New Inn St John's Wood is a charming gastropub hotel close to the cricket ground. Danubius Hotel offers sophisticated design flair throughout and spacious rooms just two minutes from Lord's. The Comfort Inn Edgware Road offers low-cost rooms just a few tube stops from the cricket ground, and 146 Suites offers a range of stylish apartments in Marylebone, also just a few tube stops away from St John's Wood.
