Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is the largest tennis museum in the world, hosting exhibits and artifacts dating from 1555 to today.

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.

  • All who like tennis or watching tennis will be able to enjoy this place. If you have time, I do recommend to join the tour that take you to the backyard of the stadium! You can make reservation over the internet to enjoyable 90-min tour!
  • Fantastic little museums. A must-visit for avid tennis fans and a great way to spend an afternoon indoors when the weather is not 'favourable' enough for a stroll on the Common.
  • Fantastic, they could talk more about the croquet side of it, all they talked about was Tennis, there was only a brief mention about croquet, missing a trick as popularity for Tennis will eventually fade while croquet is played by all the young folks nowadays
  • Great tour! The staff was extremely helpful
  • Absolutely loved the visit and worth visit. Thought it was expensive, but post museum and tour, it's all worth it. Easy commute and family had fun. Visiting a grandslam venue is always special!

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.
