We're not tennis buffs, but went to check it out for our mom who is a tennis buff. Taking the tube from Bayswater and then transferring to the metro couldn't have been eaiser - 25mins one way, a smooth and easy ride. The small town of Wimbledon is picture perfect and people are friendly and probably used to seeing tourists. Alighting from the tube the bus stop is right across the street and can use the same ticket used on the tube! Another 10mins and the bus drops you off right in front of the Stadium. The facility is clean and if you've seen it on TV looks exactly what you imagined, right down to the pink and white flowers surrounding the courts. We arrived a week after the Championships and the only negative was not enough souvenirs available. They have a cafe on the premises, but we didn't stop to eat. Only checked out the museum, the grounds and the gift shop. A wonderful place, even for non-tennis buffs.

I am a huge tennis fan but have never visited Wimbledon before. It was amazing to see centre court, court 1, Henman Hill etc. It would have been nice to see more of the interior, but great to see the broadcasting studio.
Two things which could be improved on; the tour guide said that Murray was the first Wimbledon person to win Wimbledon for 70 odd years and forgot to mention that Virginia Wade won in 1977! I can remember watching Anne Jones and Virginia Wade win and there were others before them. So it was disappointing that these Britiah women do not have their own special display area in the Museum! Especially as Murry has a display area all of his own. Also a statue of one of our female champion to keep Fred Perry company would be good!

This was a trip with more changes than I wished but the time and effort were so worth it. The place is so awesome and so ful of history and drama that you can imagine that the sound of tennis balls are actually ringing in your ears.

The guided tour (the only way you can see the place) was fantastic as was the lady who led our tour. She had so much knowledge along with pictures taken over a long period of time.

Next time I see the matches there I will remember standing next to the Center Court and then remember how it felt to actually sit in the same interview chair as the winners do.

We visited London in August and picked a day with great weather to visit Wimbledon. After getting off the train (the District line) at Southfields, it is about a 15 minute walk to the tennis club. It really is as beautiful as it seems when watching it on TV. The guide was quite knowledgable and getting to see Centre Court was quite a thrill. I would recommend this visit to others.

We visited Wimbeldon in July and enjoyed the tour and the beautiful grounds. We caught the train from London be sure to listen to the overhead as you don't get out at the Wimbeldon stop it is actually before.I cant remember the name of the stop now. From there we walked to the tennis ground it is about a 10 minute easy walk. There was also a bus that you could catch if you weren't up for the walk. The tour was well presented and informative. We were however dissappointed we didn't see more of the players rooms and area it would have been good to have them added to the tour. Seeing centre court is just amazing and we enjoyed the press room plus the stories our guide told us. Overall it was an enjoyable tour and I am glad we did it. We had lunch in the cafe and it was reasonably priced and the food was OK. The shop had plenty of souvenirs and the museum is well worth a visit.
