The Pavilion at Lord's is one of the most iconic buildings in sport.
On major match days the Members’ Lounge will be open to Members of MCC only. On other match days the Members’ Lounge will be open for Members and others who are entitled to use the Pavilion in accordance with the Club’s regulations. There is a small bar, and tea and cakes will be available.
Drinking is allowed only in the bars and designated areas in front of the Pavilion. Neither food nor drink may be taken from the bars to other parts of the Pavilion. Although the Pavilion bars are open all day, those using the bars should not take drinks outside, in the view of the general public, when the public bars are closed. If this request is not observed, it may be necessary to restrict the opening hours of Pavilion bars.
