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.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
