Although located outside of area 1-2 of the underground, dont miss it if you love tennis. And if you are already there, Take the guided tour. Great experience

Many thanks! We're very glad to hear you enjoyed the tour, especially as someone who is not a tennis enthusiast. We endeavour to ensure that the same is true for the Museum, with many interactive and multimedia elements, as well as exhibits relating as much to fashion, design and cultural history as they do to tennis. So we are sorry... More

This is worth visiting. It takes about a half an hour on public transportation and walking to get to this museum and it is in a beautiful part of London that I enjoyed seeing. The staff here is REALLY nice - everyone from security to people who worked in the shop were helpful and enthusiastic. One of the store workers... More

Thank you for visiting us! We're so glad to hear you had such a pleasant visit, and that you were able to make use of the Centre Court 360 viewing facility - we include this in the Museum entry price because we appreciate not everyone has time for a full grounds tour. Absolutely, there are plenty of interactive exhibits in... More

As a general sports fan, Wimbledon is one of the few events where tennis receives some of my focus. So visiting the All England Lawn Tennis Club struck me as a natural tourist destination. So off to Southfields station I headed (well actually you book a tour first, don't just show up). A bit of a rainy day, but even... More

Thank you for your comments. We're very glad to hear you appreciated the tour and I am sorry to hear you did not have time for the Museum. On the guided tour you are witnessing the Club in its current state so naturally there is a greater emphasis on the modern developments of the Club and the game. It is... More

The museum has an excellent history with a super audio-visual experience about the history of tennis and Wimbledon. If you are a tennis lover, you do not want to miss this.

I loved visiting this great Museum, must say they have vibrant collection of artefacts dating back to 1555. I enjoyed seeing a 'ghost' of John McEnroe which appears in the very changing room he once used. One of the most exciting features of the museum is the new exhibition, CentreCourt360. It was an amazing experience of Centre Court with touch... More

We visited here in September as a surprise for our daughter as she used to be a tennis coach and never had time to visit. Well from entering the gates until leaving you are made very welcome. We did the tour around wimbledon and the museum and it was worth every penny even though i do not follow tennis. It... More

Fun, interactive guide through tennis, including Centre Court. Our favourite bit was posing for "champion" photos in the press room. Tip.. If you want to eat, can get more. And better choice in nearby Wimbledon or Southfields. Really good fun visit for my family and visitors.

Two teenage daughters whom are not players were mildly amused, but as a player and fan I loved it. Better with tennis on of course. Museum part was interesting. Lunch at cafe was nice and well priced and had wifi.

It is a great place to go! TIP, don't go by tube, you'll have to walk at least 15 minutes. Go by bus, transfer if needed, and it drops you off right in front! The people were SO nice! Go see it if you get the chance!
