See the historic birthplace of The Ashes, the Kia Oval is currently owned by HRH Prince Of Wales.
Ever since 1845 Surrey CCC has been based at The Oval, a stadium iconic the world over for its history and unique ownership by the Duchy of Cornwall, HRH Prince Charles. Away from Cricket some say The Oval is where English Sport was founded. In addition to being the birthplace of the Ashes, in 1870 the ground hosted the first ever International football match in England between England and Scotland. Two years later in 1872 it hosted both the first ever FA Cup final and the auld enemy came together again this time in a Rugby Union fixture.
Due to the Oval's excellent location, the venue is served by public transport and are able to offer on-site coach parking. So, why not follow in the footsteps of sporting legends and take a tour of this fascinating and historic venue.
