Although a limited number of spectators can now attend matches at Trent Bridge, the behind the scenes areas of the historic Pavilion that form such a key part of our Guided Tours remain within a zone of the ground that is reserved for players and support staff at all times, in order to maintain safety during the pandemic.
Therefore, we do not feel able to offer Guided Tours until visitors are allowed into these areas again. We apologise for any disappointment this causes, and we will re-start the Tours as soon as possible.
In the meantime, please see below for a taste of what to expect from our Classic Tour:
What you can enjoy on our Classic Tour
- See inside the world-famous 1880s Pavilion and visit the players’ dressing rooms and members’ facilities
Visit the Wynne-Thomas Library, home to one of the largest collections of cricket books in the world (Monday - Friday only)
Walk around the pitch and onto the hallowed turf (conditions permitting)
Explore the spectator, playing and media facilities in the Radcliffe Road Stand. Discover the views of the world’s broadcasters from the media boxes and enjoy stunning views of Nottingham from the upper floors
Tours are held throughout the year every Tuesday at 2pm and on alternate Saturdays at 10.30am (excluding matchdays). The Classic Tour is a great experience for adults – even if you don’t know much about cricket. Children are welcome when accompanied by a paying adult.

All Nottinghamshire CCC members are entitled to the one free Classic Tour per calendar year, which must be booked in advance through the Ticket Office.

Advance booking is strongly recommended, but any remaining tickets will be available from the Ticket Office until 15 minutes before a tour starts.
Planning your visit
- Tours start outside the Ticket Office (through the Dixon Gates, off Bridgford Road, opposite the Co-Op). Please arrive at the starting point at least 15 minutes before the advertised start time
- The full tour requires some walking - and if you wish to visit the upper floors of the Pavilion, there are three flights of stairs to climb. Wheelchair access is possible to the Radcliffe Road Stand and the ground floor of the Pavilion. Unfortunately, there are no lifts in the Pavilion.
- Car parking is not available inside the ground for tours. There is on-street parking near the ground, or pay and display car parks in West Bridgford. Public transport stops right outside the ground.
- Please note that Trent Bridge is a working cricket ground so the content of the tours may vary when some areas are occasionally closed. Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club reserves the right to vary the route and content of a tour without further prior notice. Tours may also be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
We offer tailored tours on alternative dates and times for private groups. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact the Ticket Office on 0115 899 0300.
We are currently developing a special Children's Tour, aimed at children aged between 7 and 11 who are accompanied by a responsible adult. If you would like to receive details about these tours once they have been launched, please email email@example.com.
“It was an excellent afternoon being shown parts of the ground not normally open to the public by a friendly and knowledgeable guide. Over two hours hearing about the fascinating history of the club, the ground and the game.”
“Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative”
“The views from the top of the stadium across the ground were great and my son felt like a test match player wandering across the outfield into the pavilion. A really good couple of hours for anyone who is interested in cricket”
“The tour was amazing. Wonderful setting and first-class condition. The gentleman who led our tour was knowledgeable and very humorous – so good in fact that he made our experience very special. So much history and ambience – we soaked it all up and loved it.”
