With clothing and equipment donated by tennis’ top stars, you are bound to see something from your favourite player. You will also visit the Centre Court and find out how Wimbledon’s distinctive grass is cared for and discover what goes on behind the scenes in the Broadcast Centre.

With a friendly guide, you’ll take a peek at the Royal areas of the Hall, see the breath-taking auditorium and take a glimpse of the stage where the world’s stars have appeared. You will also discover how the building was funded and the Royal love story that nearly stopped it from being built.
