We are very pleased to be running a variety of ground tours this year!

Ever since 1845 Surrey CCC has been based at The Oval, a stadium iconic the world over for its history and unique gasholders that have overlooked every game played at the ground since 1853. Away from Cricket some say The Oval is where English Sport was founded. In addition to being the birthplace of the Ashes, in 1870 the ground hosted the first ever International football match in England between England and Scotland. Two years later in 1872 it hosted both the first ever FA Cup final and the auld enemy came together again this time in a Rugby Union fixture.

Due to our excellent location, we are well served by public transport and are also able to offer on-site coach parking. So, why not follow in the footsteps of sporting legends and take a tour of this fascinating and historic venue.

Follow in the footsteps of the greats by taking your place on our pristine outfield.
See if you can do better than the likes of Aggers and Vaughan and take your place in the commentary boxes.
The newly developed Peter May Stand with outstanding views of the pitch and the iconic Gasholder.
