The next stop on our tour was the Pavilion. For some reason we were not allowed to take pictures here which rather puzzled me.

The one place we were allowed to take photos was in the dressing room and we visited both the home and the away rooms. I was surprised how sparsely furnished they were.

The guide explained to us that many players have their favourite seats. Most surprising was that even some overseas players have seats in the visitors dressing room where they always sit.

It was great to sit on the players balcony just like the England players would during a test match.
