Lord's :: Visitors' Map of London :: A-Z Maps


Founded by Thomas Lord as a private cricket ground - though on Dorset Fields in Marylebone where Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) was formed in 1787. A year later a Code of Laws were created since adopted throughout the game. Following a period at Marylebone Bank, Regent's Park, between 1811 and 1813, Lord's moved to this world famous site in St John's Wood in 1814.

The Pavilion with its famous Long Room, both a cricket-watching room and art gallery dates from 1889, and is a listed building.

Here also are the state-of-the-art MCC Indoor Cricket School, the MCC Library and the MCC Museum which is open to visitors via the MCC Cricket Tour - where prize exhibits include the Wisden Trophy and the Ashes urn.

At the opposite end of the ground to the Pavilion stands the futuristic Media Centre of 1999 designed by Future Systems.

It is supported above the ground on its lift shafts thus minimising seat loss, it was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize for architecture in 1999.
