England's winter touring party had a Long Room Lord's goodbye prior to flying to Australia to defend the Ashes.

The squad were treated to a goodbye lunch - a PCA event - in the Nursery Pavilion and posed for a team photograph in the Long Room before setting off Down Under.

Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad and Jonathan Trott joined Mark Nicholas for a Q&A session at the lunch, while comedian and cricket fan Al Murray was also in attendance.

Alastair Cook's men are looking to seal a fourth successive Ashes Series victory for the first time since the 19th century.

The series gets underway on 21 November in Brisbane, and finishes in Sydney with the fifth and final Test, which starts on 3 January.

England's last day at Lord's

The Ashes Urn is permanently housed in the MCC Museum at Lord's.

Visitors can visit the Museum throughout the year, which also forms part of the famous Lord's Tour.
