About The Oval Cricket Ground

This is one of the most recognised stadiums for playing cricket. Unlike Lord’s Stadium which appears old fashioned (or certainly has a reputation for being so), The Oval is a more modern and relaxed venue. While the came is taken seriously, the clientele isn’t the types that one would find enjoying a game at Lord’s. With a capacity of 25,500 fans, games are going to be loud and the excitement palpable. A history that stretches far back and wins that have entered the game’s record books, this is the essential pick for those coming to London to watch a game of cricket.

A few facts about The Oval Cricket Grounds can be found below:

  • The Oval originated when an oval road was built around a cabbage patch in the 1790s
  • The Oval became a cricket ground in 1845 when 10000 grass turfs were brought from Tooting Common.
  • The first-ever international cricket match in England was held here in 1868.
  • The first-ever international football match took place here in 1870. 
  • The first floodlights were used in the form of gas lamps in 1889.
  • From 1915, the feathers of Prince of Wales appeared on the Surrey badge because the land is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall.
  • During WW2,  The Oval was planned to be used as a prisoner of war camp, but this never happened.
  • Permanent flood lights were installed in 2009.

  • Tate Britain - Showing off the best of Britain’s artists, JMW Turner, John Constable and William Blake have their own separate rooms amongst the temporary exhibits and other assortments of the nation’s best and brightest maestros. 
  • Battersea Park - This 200 acre park is open to all and is located across from the River Thames, full of great views to eat a picnic to and plenty of space to show off football skills. Whether walking for contemplation or jogging stay fit, the park is a must-visit.
