Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum (WLTM) is the largest tennis museum in the world. The museum was inaugurated at The Championships centenary event in 1977. On 12 April 2006, The Duke of Kent declared the brand new Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum open to the public inside the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
This museum has exhibits and artefacts dating back to 1555 as well as touch screen computer consoles for visitors to interact with. Memorabilia from many famous players from Victorian times up to present day are included in exhibits which change seasonally. The museum allows Museum guests to experience the atmosphere of Centre Court, except for the period around The Championships. Guided tours led by Blue Badge guides are also available which take visitors behind the scenes of the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Audio guides are also available. WLTM is open year-round to the public except during The Championships week where entry is available to tournament ticket holders only.

My husband and I did the guided tour while we were in London and it was great to look behind the scenes! The museum is super interesting in itself but the guided tour was definitely the highlight. Who knows if we’ll ever actually make it to a match but at least we’ve seen the courts! It’s easy to get there, just make sure you bring enough time. Between the tour, museum, and shop we spent a few hours there. The staff (including our tour guides) was super helpful and friendly! If you’re planning on doing the tour, keep in mind that it’s not available year round and you might want to pre-book online, since it’s not in central London.

Great tour and museum! Tour : More than 1.5 hour tour showing all the behind the scenes and all you need to know about the history of lawn tennis The tour guide was so knowledgeable and had a lot of fun facts Museum : U get to see how racquets evolved over time, types of tournaments with displays, and most interesting to me was the signed clothes by the players who won the tournaments . You can also find a lovely gift shop after the tour In general, if your a tennis fan then it’s a must destination for you .

Superb visit to Wimbledon. Though at one end of the city but the train/bus ride makes it a easy commute thereby making it a must visit. So much history and exciting experience it can give that even a non sports enthusiast would feel enriched with the visit. Go For It
