Description

Revel in a guided Wimbledon tour like no other. With an incomparable look behind-the-scenes at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, guests will take in all the sights at the home of tennis, and indulge in an appetising three-course Michelin star lunch at a nearby restaurant on this Wimbledon tour gift.

Home of the world's oldest tennis competition, also widely considered the most prestigious, the All England Lawn Tennis Club is a bastion of sporting heritage in south-west London. From the record haul of 7 championships achieved by both Sampras and Federer and the moment Queen Elizabeth II presented Virginia Wade with the 1977 trophy, to Andy Murray's famous 2013 victory, Wimbledon is steeped in history and tradition. The surprisingly large complex is a destination every tennis fan must see.

With this Wimbledon tour gift, guests will be able to join one of the club's scheduled guided tours. They will meet one of the club's knowledgeable Blue Badge guides by the Wingfield Café, before enjoying some of the most recognisable and exclusive areas of the grounds.

Guests will certainly need no introduction to Centre Court and No. 1 Court, which have played host to some of the greatest matches in tennis history, including the Federer vs. Nadal epic in 2008 and the 1969 Gonzales vs. Pasarell battle that lasted 112 games and 2 days.

Meanwhile, peeking behind-the-scenes into the press interview room and Millennium Building, which houses the players’ and members’ facilities, gives a secret glimpse into the world behind the Championships. The picnic terraces, more frequently known as 'Henman Hill' or 'Murray Mount' are also not to be missed, while the expert guide will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Both before and after the tour, guests will be able to discover the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, an unsurpassed collection of tennis memorabilia and history. Artefacts at the museum date back as far as 1555, with trophies, outfits, interactive features and more.

In addition to the incomparable experience of tennis treats, guests will also be able to enjoy a three-course Michelin star lunch, with an array of gastronomic delights, either before or after the tour - private transport will transfer guests between the restaurant and Wimbledon. Indulging in the three-course lunch menu, guests will enjoy a selection of bold combinations and striking flavours that produce a symphony of sensory joy.

Reviews

  • A very lovely "experience"

    All in all a great day but a little disappointed when we arrived at Wimbledon reception and they did not seem to have a record of our booking. However they eventually let us in because we had the print out of the voucher. The lunch at Chez Bruce was superb - delicious food and great service - they really looked after us.


    Wimbledon Tour

    I very much enjoyed my experience. My only complaint was the transportation coordination. It should have been more clear where to meet the driver and better coordination on both sides. There was some confusion for us in meeting the driver. Overall, however, it was a great experience.

  • Disappointing

    Wimbledon tour was great, no complaints. However the car arrived half an hour late to pick us up with no apology from the driver. I think describing it as a chauffeured transfer was misleading as it was simply a scruffy taxi/driver. Although the food and service was good , the restaurant made no acknowledgement of my partner's birthday which was disappointing. All in all not the special treat I had expected.

    Great experience

    It was really nice and really enjoyed it!

  • Wonderful meal

    Wonderful meal at the restaurant. Very friendly taxi driver. Very good guided tour at Wimbledon.

    A wonderful day

    A wonderful day slightly tarnished by a mix up with transfer arrangement from wimbledon to chez bruce. Staff dealt efficiently with problem but half hour wait on a rainy day not ideal. Barring this an excellent would be the score

  • Perfect Birthday Treat for My Husband

    Thanks to truly for arranging everything perfectly. This was the perfect treat for my husband's 40th birthday and went without a hitch.

    Incredibly Delightful

    Had a wonderful day - the tour was informative and interesting. I've been to Wimbledon on numerous occasions and enjoyed the festive atmosphere, but it was great to be able to have a look around at a quieter time and see all the things one might usually miss. I was struck by how the players' changing rooms were incredibly luxurious in particular.

    The lunch was also exceptional, three courses of fine dining. The veal in particular was a delight. I highly recommend this experience, as I thought it was of excellent value all things considered.Had a wonderful day - the tour was informative and interesting.
