This place is very good and there is a good view almost everywhere. The cricket shop is good and the cafe is nice.

Came here to see a Kent team play the West Indies. The ground is a classic old style (in a good way) ground. lots of places to get a good view. Cafe on site is great and there is a Sainbury's just outside.
