To get there from downtown London, we took the Underground plus a short bus ride, which dropped us at the main entrance -- go to Wimbledon's website for specifics on the route. We joined a walking tour of... More

I should start by saying that I'm not a huge tennis fan (watch occasionally and played a few years) but this museum was very interesting. It takes you from the very beginning of the game to the present and is displayed in a way that you are intrigued and never bored. Afterwards they take you to the stands of centre... More

Wimbledon stadium and museum are slightly out of the way, around a 30 minute walk from the Wimbledon Underground terminal, or 12 minutes from the other underground stop. The guide we had was very informative, and the tour included stops at Court No1, Centre Court, the other courts as well as access to the players/members areas which would not normally... More
