Sustainability

The green choices available to you on a matchday are highlighted as bold* throughout this page.

Please scroll down to find out more about gate opening times, Food & Drink, Travel, Facilities, Shop, WiFi and matchday reporting.

Opening times

Your ticket gives you access to both the men’s and women’s matches on the same day, so make sure you get there for the first match!

Make sure you’ve looked at your ticket in the app to see what time the first match starts.

You can expect to be searched on entry to the venue. Please follow the guidance from stewards and security staff. To speed up entry we suggest you only bring essential items with you and leave bags at home if possible. Help Lord’s to stay safe by staying alert: if something doesn’t look right, tell a steward.

There are several Cycle Hire docking stations within five minutes’ walk of the ground, on Abbey Road, St John’s Wood Road, Wellington Road, Lodge Road, Lisson Grove and Prince Albert Road.

Whilst St. John’s Wood is the closest Tube station to Lord’s, it is exceptionally busy before and after matches.

Ticketholders are encouraged to use various alternative routes to and from the Ground via Tube stations such as Baker Street, Warwick Avenue, Marylebone and Edgware Road, all of which are no more than a 15-minute walk from Lord’s. 

By Bus

The 13 and 113 bus* routes run adjacent to Lord's on the Wellington Road (to the east of the ground). These stop closest to the North and Heyhoe Flint Gates, but are within a comfortable walking distance to the Grace Gate.

The 139 and 189 routes run adjacent to Lord's on Grove End Road (to the west of the Ground). These routes stop closest to the Grace Gate, but are a short walk from the Heyhoe Flint and North Gates.

By National Rail

The nearest main line railway* station is Marylebone, served by Chiltern Railways, which is approximately ten minutes’ walk from the ground. Marylebone Station is on the Chiltern line.

Paddington Station is approximately 20 minutes’ walk from the Ground, for services to West and South-West England and South Wales.

By Car

We encourage all visitors to use public transport if possible. There are parking restrictions affecting non-residents on the streets surrounding Lord’s and on St John’s Wood High Street on all major match days, so please ensure you do not park in bays which are for residents’ use only.
