Lord's feels the Ashes effect
Published: 03 July 2013
MCC has announced that record numbers have flocked to the Home of Cricket for a Lord's Tour in 2013, as cricket fans prepare for the Investec Ashes Series this summer.
Since January there have been more visitors to the Club's Museum - where the famous Ashes Urn is on permanent display - through Tours and other visits than in any previous year.
In June alone, an average of 364 visitors-a-day came through the famous Grace Gate, a total of 10,926 enjoying a behind-the-scenes look at Lord's.
Those unable to make it to Lord's can now enjoy the history of the Ashes Urn in 101 seconds thanks to a new video from Lord's TV.
