An iconic place to watch county cricket

The St Lawrence ground is a lovely place to watch cricket with many historic associations, easy to access from the city.

Long queue to get in but well organised and moved quickly. Surrounding roads very busy. Nice open venue for a summer concert. Plenty of food and drink vendors.plenty of toilets. Roads closed and busy after concert and lots of park and ride available.

Saw Bryan Adams play last night had a great time. I do go past here regularly as we use the physio at the ground. Lots of staff on duty last night. We'll organise event. Parking in arranged locally as the ground does not have a Carpark unless you are attending a clinic or conference event.

Beautiful surroundings, helpful friendly staff, great atmosphere. Plenty to eat and drink. There could always be more toilets but queues not too bad. Brilliant evening and would definitely return again for another concert in the future. Leaving the grounds was straight forward. Local roads were closed so road would help flow of people walking out. I thought it was very... More

This was day 1 of a 4 day county cricket match between Kent and Worcestershire. Weather was brilliant! The seats, although plastic, were remarkably comfortable. Food, drinks and toilets are within easy reach from all points of the ground. If a family are proposing to have a day out here, I would advise taking a picnic and good supply of... More

An excellent concert that was very well marshalled by all staff involved. Well mannered and good humoured staff were both concientious and helpful which made the wait to get in painless.

Unfortunately the event was very badly organised toilets were absolutely awful and the queues were even worse waiting nearly an hour. We had the highest priced tickets and we we're disappointed as the bars and toilets were such a long way from this area, another thing was there were too many people crammed into it, it was dangerous and unsafe...

Sadly very poor organisation. Not well publicised what the rules were re taking foo, drink, chairs etc and no parking at event so people were turning up with all kinds of stuff only to have to dump it or walk back to their cars. If there's to be no food or drink allowed at venues at least have decent, well... More
