Ground Tours and Experiences

GROUND TOURS

Take a tour of the world-famous Kia Oval, home to Surrey Cricket Club since 1845 and, in 1880, the first ground in England to host Test cricket. Go behind the scenes for a 90-minute guided tour of this brilliant sporting venue that has, amongst other things, staged England’s first international football match, the first FA Cup Final and first international rugby match.

Begin your tour with tea & coffee in our prestigious Committee room, enjoying the wonderful view of our hallowed turf. Over the course of the tour you will learn how we prepare for international cricket, gaining access to our most exclusive areas including: Members’ Pavilion, Media Suites, Commentary Boxes, Dressing Rooms and, at certain times when the head groundsman grants permission, getting to walk onto the outfield! The tour will give you the chance to:

  • Have tea & coffee in our Members Pavilion overlooking the pitch
  • Browse the Club Museum and more than a century of cricketing history
  • Take a seat in the Test Match Special commentary box and see if you do better than the likes of Boycott, Tufnell, Vaughan and Aggers
  • Enjoy pitch side views with the opportunity to sit in the best seats in the house
  • Enter the Committee room where Club Presidents past and present have held their meetings and entertained their VIP guests on match-day
