The 'home of cricket' and the game's spiritual HQ. Lord's importance is not merely historical. In fact it is, to this day, probably the most important single place in the world when it comes to cricket.

Marylebone Cricket Club - The MCC, owns Lord's Cticket Field and is the guardian of both the Laws and the sporting spirit of the game of Cricket.

MCC sides, play around 500 games of cricket each year whilst performing the key role of promoting cricket - in Britain and elsewhere in the world.

Lord's is also the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), as well as the European Cricket Council (ECC), MCC Indoor Cricket School, the unrivalled MCC Library and the now world-famous MCC Museum - where exhibits include the Wisden Trophy and, of course, the Ashes urn pictured left.

Lord's can be the setting for some of the best cricket in the world. It hosts npower sponsored test matches and NatWest-sponsored one-day internationals as well as most of Middlesex's home games plus some historic fixtures (such as Oxford v Cambridge) and the village and club annual finals.
