Wimbledon Museum & Tour
Visit the grounds, the courts and the rooms usually reserved for players only
Wimbledon Museum & Tour is a great way to see behind the scenes of the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.
The tour lasts 90 minutes and you will see both public and private grounds which are usually reserved for players only during the Championships.
- The Centre Court where Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer during the most recent 2014 final. The stats are still displayed so take advantage of this amazing photo opportunity!
- No. 2 Court, known as the Graveyard of Champions where many world number 1s were infamously defeated by less experienced players.
- Aorangi Terrace better known as Henman Hill or Murray Mould where the spectators watch the matches on big screens and indulge on strawberries with cream and champagne.
- Players’ Reception – this is where the players arrive before the match.
- The Media Centre where the players hold after-match interviews (another great photo opportunity!)
Leave extra time to visit Wimbledon museum after the tour. This is the world’s oldest tournament so the museum is a treasure box for tennis fans. All tennis history is there: the trophies, the evolution of tennis rackets from woden to what the players use today, the interviews with players revealing all the emotions behind triumphs and defeats and much more. The Walk of Champions, a 3D film shows you what happens behind-the-scenes during the actual Championships. While John McEnroe “ghost” invites you to his former changing room and takes you on a journey of tennis.
Next time you watch Roger play you’ll feel you know him a bit better.
