This tour is very good indeed. I'm sure for visitors who are not interested in cricket would find this interesting. The guide we had was really easy to listen to and very knowledgeable. You are taken to lots of different areas within the stadium including where only members of the club are allowed in, to the different commentary boxes, to where spectators that pay for the most expensive seats which give not just fabulous views of the ground, but also wonderful views on London. You are allowed to take as many photos as you like. Being on the tour allows you 10% reduction in club shop. The 2 hour tour flew by!
The ground is minutes from The Oval Tube Station.
Great value for money.

Good venue with loads of eateries and bars situated inside the grounds. At present card only payments. Loads of toilets inside ground. Cricket shop onsite.

The Oval is famous as a cricket ground, but I had no idea of it’s importance in the tapestry of English sport. I won’t spoil the surprises, you can do the tour and find them out yourself.

The ground is five minutes walk from Oval station on the Northern Line and the tour takes about 90 odd minutes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and aside from what you can see and access inside the ground you have some fascinating views across the ever-changing skyline of London.

A really interesting tour showing us behind the scenes at the Oval. The tour guide was a font of knowledge and clearly loves his subject. It was a full 90 minutes but felt relaxed with lots of opportunities for questions and discussion. Not just for enthusiasts it would be interesting for anyone.

Went on the Kia Oval Tour last week. It was a beautiful day, watched some great cricket and great atmosphere. The tour was extremely interesting and the guides were friendly and very knowledgeable as you might expect. The history is quite an eye opener. We also received a nice brochure. Then came the afternoon tea. It was very average and nothing special. We were seated, and offered a cup of tea, which came, not in a nice pot as expected, but a cup with the teabag in it. We then waited over 20 minutes for the food to arrive. Four small triangles of sandwiches - two with coronation chicken and two cheese and chutney, one of which had no cheese at all. And a couple of inch-sized pieces of bagel with smoked salmon, Two small scones and a minuscule selection of cakes. By this time, we were gasping for another cup of tea, so had to try and catch the eye of one of the staff, which we did. Sadly, one member of staff, a Scottish girl spent most of her time talking to a couple rather than doing her job. It was a very matter of fact experience. So, my star rating is for the tour, and not necessarily the tea.
