Lords Cricket Ground

Tuesday 31 July and we were off to London to visit Lords. The ideal excursion for an Australian cricket tour in England.
As we were a little early for our tour we went for a walk in the nearby streets.
The Lords Tavern is a pub near the Grace Gates entrance to Lords.
Alan and Robin outside the W G Grace Memorial Gates.
Our tour at Lords began with a visit to the museum.
We were told about the history of Lords and then shown the exhibit we all wanted to see - The Ashes.
There was also a special display commemorating the first tour of England by an Aboriginal team.
We then had a tour of the Long Room and the players rooms.
The Visitors' Room was a popular location with our players.
The players almost fitted on the Visitors' balcony.
Views of the ground.
We then visited the Press Gallery.
After visiting the Lords Shop we explored the local area and had lunch before returning to the coach.
