Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is a cutting edge family attraction unveiled by H.R.H. The Duke Of Kent in April 2006. It gained a Visit London Awards gold award for ‘Best Tourism Experience 2007’, making it a right royal family day out!
Located at the Lawn Tennis Association’s HQ, off Church Road, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum includes unseen artefacts and displays and is open all year, except for The World Championships, when it’s available only to tournament ticket holders. For a grand family day out, however, a ticket to Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is as thrilling as a match-point tie-breaker, and won’t be interrupted by the elements, or a Cliff singalong for that matter! Just the ticket.
The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is housed in the Centre Court zone and outlines the history of lawn tennis from its modern origins in the 1870s, to the present day. Top draws include the original Championship trophies, video clips of some of the top players in action, and ‘real tennis’ memorabilia dating back to 1555, when it was played by royalty at Hampton Court Palace. Additionally, there’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the hallowed halls, taking in the Centre Court and No. 1 Court, as well as the Fred Parry Statue and Press Interview Room, ensuring an illuminating as well as enjoyable family day out.
