As a tennis fan my wife has longed to visit Wimbledon. She was delighted to take this opportunity to visit the centre court and other areas of the grounds; disappointed that the visit did not include the changing rooms and we did not get a chance to see the trophies. Knowledgeable guide who coped admirably with what we considered to... More

From going through the gate and being greeted by the helpful gatekeeper to leaving , couldn't fault the experience. The shop is well stocked with variously priced souvenirs some quite cheap and some very expensive had pre booked the tour, but as I had arrived early they let me join and earlier tour to save waiting. The tour takes in... More

Thank you for your review - we're so glad to hear you had such an enjoyable day. Many thanks also for raising the issue of steps on the tour. This is something worth considering if you are thinking of booking a tour. However, I am pleased to say that we are able to adapt the route to cut out steps... More

I didn't realize the tour is about an hour and half until the end of it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The museum was great as well. You learn so much about the history of the tennis from when used to wear gown to play till now that wear almost nothing. This is not to be missed for any... More

We were very hesitant about taking the "long" subway trip out from the centre of London but so glad we did. Saw the museum and trophies, and the tour was grand! Would do it again in a heartbeat! Would highly recommend... P.S. We didn't need a reservation for the tour so go and take the chance!

We visited Wimbledon from Hyde Park in Central London by train, with a short walk about 15 mins from station to Gate 4 (or you can catch a bus) but it was a beautiful day. We entered the shop before starting our tour at 11.00am. The tour is very comprehensive, visiting the Centre court, going around the grounds and visiting... More

Visit was on a sunny day in early August. Traveling to the All England Lawn Tennis Club from central London was easier than I expected. District line to Southfields stop, walk out of the station and follow the arrow sign to the club, about a 15-20 minute walk. Entrance to the tour is at Gate 4, about at the center... More

We celebrated our stay in Wimbledon by visiting the museum. The museum provides unique access to the legendary players, tennis artefacts, inter-actives and films, amazing 200 degrees Cinema taking a 3-D look at the Science of Tennis. We also saw Centre Court, where many great Wimbledon finals were played, in winter.

The tour is really good and it's nice to be surrounded by tennis fans at, what Roger Federer calls, the greatest tennis court in the world. One of the best ways to get to Wimbledon from downtown is to take the train to Southfields station and then bus 39 to get to the tennis museum, courts and tour that begins... More

Visited with our teen, a tennis fan and avid watcher of Wimbledon every July. The tour is terrific and provides an overview of the club's history as well as access to places where usually only the players are allowed. Perhaps the neatest aspect was seeing the names and scores of this year's players still on the big board. A really... More
