The Lord's Cricket ground in London is widely referred to as the Home of Cricket and is home to the world's oldest sporting museum.
The current ground celebrated its two hundredth anniversary in 2014.
The main visitor attraction is the Pavilion, with its famous Long Room. It is through this room through which all cricketers come out into the ground. One of the most distinctive and famous features of the Lord's ground is the significant slope across the field.
The newest attraction, the Media Centre was commissioned in time for the 1999 Cricket World Cup, and was the first all-aluminium, semi-monocoque building in the world.
The Lord's honours boards are boards in the Lord's Pavilion at Lord's Cricket Ground in London, England that commemorate cricket players who have scored a century or taken 5 wickets in a single innings or 10 across both innings in a Test match at Lord's. It is a considered a great distinction to be named on either the batting or bowling honours boards, although names like Sachin, Warne or Lara are prominently missing.
We took an hour's tour of the pavilion, the ground, the dressing rooms and the museum. Our most memorable moment was when the guide told us about the balcony where an Indian captain waved his shirt in the air after winning a famous match, the balcony now nicknamed "Ganguly balcony"
