Lord's Cricket Ground is the home ground of quite a few teams, prominent among them being the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club). The MCC is actually the governing body of the game of cricket. All the big finals are played here, as well as some more off-the-wall games. The best way to see Lord's (and to start learning how cricket is played if you're not familiar with it) is to take a tour of the grounds. This lasts for around an hour and a half, and includes such highlights as the new media center, the museum and the Lord's pub, where many cricket players have enjoyed a pint after a game. Lord's Cricket Ground was also chosen to host the London 2012 Olympic Games Archery competitions.
