Lord’s Cricket Ground has re-launched its historic Harris Garden, which is situated behind the world-famous Lord’s Pavilion and offers glimpses of the hallowed turf. The charming rose garden is now available for outdoor receptions and incentive pursuits, from croquet to lawn bowls, making it the perfect location for an al fresco party.
The Harris Garden reopens following work to protect and enhance the natural beauty of the space. The attractive flint wall along the back of the garden has been exposed, displaying a dedication to Lord Harris from whom it takes its name, while the flowerbeds have been replanted with an array of tropical flowers and plants native to India, Pakistan and Australia, honouring the teams against which England has been playing cricket this year.
“Lord’s is a beautiful place all year round and really comes to life for summer events,” comments Nick Kenton, Head of Sales (Meetings & Events and Hospitality) at Lord’s. “We’re delighted to offer the Harris Garden within our repertoire of outdoor spaces after the renovation work that has further enhanced its appeal as a venue during the summer months. Attention to detail is something on which the team at Lord’s pride ourselves, and the sympathetic restoration work to the Harris Garden truly encapsulates this.”
The Harris Garden can cater for up to 300 guests with options of packages and upgrades available. Lord’s offers a variety of locations for meeting and events; enquiries may be made by telephoning 020 7616 8501, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or visiting the website at https://www.lords.org/lords/meetings-and-events/
