Meet the "ghost" of the legend John McEnroe (created with the latest in projection and filming technology) in the very changing room he once used.

  • Absolutely loved the Tour of Wimbledon. It's amazing to see the courts and all the action. The guide was fantastic and gave us all the information related to Tennis, it's history, iconic games and matches etc. The gift shop too has some really awesome unique items that one will enjoy as a Tennis enthusiast!
  • My husband is a big tennis fan and was like a kid in a candy shop on our tour of Wimbledon! Our tour guide, Richard and his assistant, Emily were great! I was riding an electric scooter and they were very helpful.
