Guided Grounds Tours

Wimbledon for me was the crowning star stadium of tennis – where so many growning up as boys and girls have dreamed of getting to ever since they first hold a racket or watch it on TV.
That year, I was lucky enough to see center court on the first year that they put up the retractable roof completed.

Wimbledon Museum

When you purchase your entrance ticket, you can enter with or without the museum option. I would definitely opt to see it, if you have not been before or are a fan of the game/history. It has many amazing tennis artifacts dating back over a century and a half.
