Visit the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum and embark on a stunning multi-dimensional tour of the traditions, triumphs, sights and sounds that have made Wimbledon the most coveted title. This family Wimbledon Tennis Tour entitles two adults and two children to an access all areas look at where even tournament ticket holders are forbidden to enter. The tour is led by specially trained Blue Badge Guides who bring to life the colourful history of the world’s most famous tennis club.
The tour route includes No.1 Court, the Picnic Terraces and Water Gardens with their fantastic views across London, The Millennium Building and Press Interview Room, which are out-of-bounds during The Championships, and on days when building work permits, Centre Court. On other days this will be replaced by the BBC Television Studio. After the tour you are then free to look around the interactive museum which is home to Championship trophies and a “ghost” of John McEnroe.
