Although it may be a little stuffy and archaic for some, the Home of Cricket is a special place, especially when a Test Match is taking place. The first morning of the first Test of the summer, in particular, provides a unique atmosphere.

History: 10

Since the earliest-known match at Lord's taking place between the MCC and Hertfordshire in 1814, there has been plenty of history created—including more than a 100 Test matches.

With 2,015 runs, Graham Gooch is the highest Test run scorer at the ground, which includes the highest individual score—a memorable 333, against India in 1990. Ian Botham leads the bowlers with his 69 wickets taken.

Aesthetics: 9

From the Victorian-era pavilion, which contains the famous Long Room and its Honours Board, through to Old Father Time (a weather vane) and the pleasant St John's Wood surroundings, the home of Marylebone Cricket Club is the definition of photogenic.

Total: 27
