It might be the 'home of cricket', but even for those of you who find they are not avid cricket fans or have a particular aversion to Oxford Shirts and rolled up chinos, Lord's really does have 'something for everyone'.

A lazy day with booze and burgers, coffees and ice creams and as Cricket is not exactly the shortest game, the chance to really relax and chat with your friends.

The key to obtaining tickets to an international match is to get in on the ballot action. Failing this, keep checking the website during the cricket season as there are always tickets available for test matches, especially if things have progressed to result in the fifth day being an almost full one.

Tickets can start around the £45.00 mark, and range to a whopping £100.00 plus. With this in mind, if you're trying to Cricket on a budget, I recommend blinkering your vision to avoid all the yummy food available and make full use of the ability to bring in a bottle of wine per ticket and all the food you can carry.

It's also worth factoring in the unpredictability of British weather and try to get covered seats somewhere like the lower tier of the Compton Stand. If that doesn't work, do take a brolly, a sun hat, sun screen, sunglasses and a raincoat.
