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

Being a football fan who has to endure tennis for 2 weeks of the year I have to say I wasn't particularly looking forward to visiting a "tennis court" how wrong was I. This museum and tour is absolutely fantastic and fascinating. The guide was very knowledgable and answered every question with assured confidence, even when challenged by one of... More

The Ultimate Wimbledon Tour is a must for all tennis fans! The museum is very interesting with all the history of tennis and the tournament. Lots of memorabilia dating back to 1555. On arrival we were served coffee and Danish pastries. Then we were taken on a spectacular guided tour with all the sights and sounds of Wimbledon. Visited Centre... More

The museum is so so but the Tour of the Courts is well worth while. The tour takes you into Court 1 and Center Court. We even got our photographs taken with our own camera (no charge, that is a pleasant difference from the photo experience thst you have to buy aftert thr tour ) in the press room sitting... More

A visit to Wimbledon is a must for anyone who loves tennis. For those of us who generally confine our tennis to the Grand Slam events, Wimbledon is still an iconic location. We walked from the nearest tube station stop (then walked back the other direction) and also enjoyed seeing the area, the local shops etc. The walk is about... More

Saturday 9th August. Weather was brilliant just right for a day at Wimbledon. Our guide Lorraine who showed us round was lovely. Couldn't believe how big the place was. 20 minutes walk from nearest tube station but there is a bus. To say I wasn't bothered about going I'm glad I did.

Went on the combined Museum and grounds tour on Sunday 3rd August. Normal price was £22, but I had the London Pass so was "free". However still had to book the tour in advance via email. The tour basically takes you to No1 court, Henman Hill/Murray Mount, Court 18 (longest match in history), Players balcony, media/press centre and centre court.... More

It was actually 2 visits to the centre court. Got fabulous tickets. I don't think there is a bad view from any seat. Will be returning next year.
