Of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, Wimbledon tops my must-see list. Since I have yet to coordinate a visit to London with tickets to a match, I decided it was time to at least pay a visit to the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, the official name of the private club where Wimbledon takes place each summer.
Wimbledon is a wealthy London suburb, just 20 minutes by commuter train from the central Waterloo Station. Tickets to a match require some effort to obtain, but not so tickets to a guided tour of the facility. We booked one of the 90-minute tours offered six times daily (except during the tournament itself).
