Gates open 2 hours before play starts.

Remember, 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 game!

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

Please read the Lord's Ground Regulations before coming.


There's a range of food and drink outlets within the ground to suit all tastes.

A wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at a number of bars throughout the concourses. Please note that only two alcoholic drinks can be purchased per person, per transaction. All public bars within the Ground will close at the start of the second half of the men’s match.

Please note that Lord’s is a cashless venue and only card payment will be taken.

You can also bring in your own picnic which you can enjoy at one of our picnic locations or the Coronation Garden.

Ticket holders are not permitted to bring in any alcoholic drinks to the Ground (which is a variation to the MCC Ground Regulations). If you are an MCC Member or Debenture Holder you may still bring alcohol into the Ground but please enter via the Grace Gate.

With 25 water fountains at Lord’s, spectators are encouraged to bring their own refillable bottles to top-up around the ground.

The Lord’s Tavern pub is open and serving food and drinks throughout the day.


Lord’s recently launched a new Lord’s App. It has a variety of features and information including match day alerts and how to make the most out of your visit to Lord’s. To find out more, please visit our website and you can download the App directly by searching on the App Store or Google Play.


Shops around the Ground will be open and selling a range of merchandise including Lord’s and The Hundred branded items and gifts as well as London Spirit kit. You can also get the kit online here.


You can expect to be searched on entry to the Ground. Please follow the guidance from our 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.
