During tours, it is impossible to escape from all this extraordinary history – not that you'd want to. The program includes visits to the Ponsford Stand, the coaches' box, the cricket viewing room, the Long Room, the Bill Lawry Centre and the MCC Library. Plus – subject to availability – your guide will take you into the players' changing rooms and let you step onto The G's hallowed turf. Don't forget your camera, because this is an experience you'll never want to forget.
Tours take approximately one hour and begin from gate 3. They are held daily (aside from event days, Good Friday and Christmas), departing on a regular basis between 10am and 3pm. They cost $20 for adults, $16 for concession, $10 for 5-15 year olds, $50 for families (two adults and four children) and nothing for under-5s. If combined with admission to the National Sports Museum (which is onsite), the price is $30, 23, $15, $60 and nothing respectively.
