Ranking among England’s most renowned and extravagant sporting venues, the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) is best known for hosting the prestigious Wimbledon Tennis Championships, the world’s oldest tennis tournament. The star event draws up to 500,000 spectators to the venue each summer and is famously attended by the Queen and the royal family, but even if you don’t snag tickets for the championships, you can still explore the impressive 42-acre grounds and visit the onsite Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, which are open all year round.
The All England Club is open to the public by guided tour, offering the chance to see the iconic Centre Court and No.1 Court, peek into the Press Interview Room and Millennium Building, and admire the views from the Picnic Terraces and Water Gardens, before discovering the history of the sport at the interactive museum.
The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) is located in Wimbledon, southwest London. The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is open daily from 10am-5pm and adult admission is £12.
