While the stands at Lord’s are packed with ardent cricket fans on match days, they also offer impressive venues for other types of occasion:
The Sir Pelham Warner Room and the Tavern Meeting Rooms, normally a private dining room and private boxes respectively, make exceptional spaces for meetings or syndicate rooms, with superb views of the pitch. On the other side of the Ground, the Mound Stand Terrace is perfect for outdoor receptions with a difference. And for wholly alfresco occasions, it’s hard to beat the delightful Harris Garden near the Pavilion.
The Sir Pelham Warner Room is a versatile space between the Pavilion and the Grand Stand with an unimpeded view over the playing area. Named after one of the great figures of Lord’s, Sir ‘Plum’ Warner, who captained MCC on its inaugural tour to Australia in 1903-1904, the room is used on match days as a private restaurant for MCC Members. With natural light and excellent facilities, it is an ideal space for meetings, lectures and conferences.
The Tavern Meeting Rooms are on the second tier of the Tavern Stand, with magnificent views of the pitch from the balcony.
On match days, these ten rooms are the private boxes from which guests can sip champagne and view the game. Throughout the rest of the year, they are an outstanding space for syndicate rooms or for smaller meetings.

Harris Garden and Mound stand Terrace
The Harris Garden is a charming rose garden laid out on the former site of a lawn tennis court near the entrance to the Pavilion.
Constructed in 1934 in memory of the renowned cricketer and politician, Lord Harris, it is a tranquil oasis in the heart of London, and forms a lovely alfresco venue for summer parties and receptions.
The Mound Stand Terrace is a unique outdoor space at the top of the famous Mound Stand that offers one of the best views of the Ground. With its ‘tented’ roof, it has a nostalgic feel, recalling the marquees of village cricket, yet with all the glamour of Lord’s.
Built in 1987 to commemorate the bicentenary of MCC, it is a light, airy and original venue for elegant summer occasions – cocktail parties, alfresco dining or open-air receptions.
Harris Garden – max 200
Mound Terrace – max 400
