Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is the largest tennis museum in the world, hosting exhibits and artifacts dating from 1555 to today. Trace the game’s evolution from a garden party pastime to a multimillion-dollar professional sport played all over the world. Admire treasures from the first Championship in 1877 to the most recent, including equipment, clothing, trophies, and mementos belonging to the greatest players to set foot on Centre Court. Meet the "ghost" of the legend John McEnroe (created with the latest in projection and filming technology) in the very changing room he once used. Listen to him reminisce about the dressing room, his legendary opponents, and how he would prepare himself for matches. Take in the atmosphere of Centre Court from the viewing platform CentreCourt360, and take a guided tour behind the scenes of the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Audio guides are also available. If driving to the museum, allow yourself plenty of time to get there in London’s notorious traffic.

  • Very well organised and interesting museum. Even if you're not a big fan of tennis.
  • The tour takes 90 minutes and you get to see court 1, Henman Hill, court 1, the interview rooms, press area and centre court. No going into members area or touching the courts' surface. Richard was our guide and he was very knowledgable.
