Description

Take a tour of The Kia Oval, one of the oldest and most prestigious cricket grounds in the world. You'll get unprecedented access to the hallowed grounds – see the pitch at ground level, follow your heroes' footsteps in the changing rooms, and even step into the commentary box. Listen closely and you can hear the echo of willow on leather!

Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, this 90-minute tour uncovers the rich history of these historic grounds, from their initial construction in 1845 right through to their present-day use, hosting major tournaments such as Test match specials and the Ashes.

You won't want to miss this opportunity to feel the hallowed turf under your feet for yourself and learn about the incredible efforts that keep the grass so pristine – who knew gardening was so exciting? You'll then get to take in the spectacular stadium from the famous Peter May stand and learn about the careful construction of cricket equipment, before stepping into the real changing rooms where thousands of sporting legends have prepared to do battle!

Rounding off the tour, you can take time to enjoy memorabilia from past and present in the club museum before relaxing with tea and coffee in the Members' Pavilion. More to see and do than you can shake a wicket at – howzat!
