MCC Museum
020 7616 8595
Address: Marylebone Cricket Club, NW8 8QN
The MCC Museum is both world-class and world-famous. While it contains a wide range of exhibits, it is best-known for being the home of The Ashes.
Created in 1883, the Ashes urn was given to the England cricket captain, the Hon Ivo Bligh, after his side had triumphed against Australia in the 1882-83 series. On his death, in 1927, his widow, who had helped to create The Ashes in the first place, bequeathed the urn to MCC. Since then, the tiny urn has remained on display at Lord's, where it is seen by the tens of thousands of people who visit the Museum each year.
Museum admission costs £7.50 for adults and £5 for concessions.
