From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
England vs. South Africa, Lord's
17 August, 2012 - 20 August, 2012
Lord’s Cricket Ground
'The Home of Cricket', Lord's in north London, hosts the final test match of summer 2012, against South Africa.
It was founded in 1787 and is owned by the influential Marylebone Cricket Club. Lord's prides itself on being the guardian of the Laws of Cricket, and the world's oldest sporting museum is to be found here, as well as stunning architecture, both traditional (the Victorian Pavilion) and modern (the futuristic pod of the Media Centre), plus a well-known weather vane in the shape of Father Time.
Good views over the famously sloping field are found in the upper tiers of the Grand and the Mound Stands, although these are debentures and hence not readily available to the public; next best are Grand Stand seats.
