Educational Tours

Learning Tour - Primary, Secondary, Further & Higher 

From the height of the grass to the weight of the tennis balls, let our Learning team guide you through the many stories, bizarre though they may seem, that make a visit to Wimbledon such an unforgettable experience. The tour reveals the story behind the first Championships, explores No.1 Court, the Picnic Terraces (the famous hill), the Millennium Building including the press areas and the iconic Centre Court.*

*Please be aware tour route is subject to change without notice due to building work

Up to 90 minutes

Science Tour: Keeping Healthy - Primary

Using the Learning tour as a starting point, pupils can uncover the science behind the sport. 

How do top players prepare before a match?  What is a tennis player’s favourite pre-match meal?  Why do tennis players have to warm up? Explore how the answers to these and other questions on the tour allow you to begin to follow in the footsteps of today’s elite tennis stars.

Up to 90 minutes

Geography Tour: How Green is Grass? - Primary

What does it take to create the perfect lawn tennis tournament?

Using the Championships site as a fieldwork study, with the aid of stories, maps and field sketches pupils can discover how much impact the tournament has on the surrounding area and will learn just how hard it really is to grow ‘green’ grass.

Up to 90 minutes

Geography Tour - Secondary

Is a lawn tennis tournament as green as it looks?

Students will be given a guided tour of the facilities, both old and new, used for the two weeks of The Championships. Using information on the scale and impact of a major sporting event, students are encouraged to identify bias, analyse source material and evaluate the evidence gained.

Up to 90 minutes


‘An appropriate worksheet was provided, the Museum is so “hands on” and the tour of the Grounds is just beautiful...it was perfect.  An inspiration to young people and adults alike’
