The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is a great place to take your kids to if they love tennis, there are daily tours in the summer months that are both educational and fun. The museum is the largest of its kind in the world and opened in 1977.
Some of the exhibits date right back to the mid-14th Century, and there is a wide variety of memorabilia from Victorian time upwards. There is even a viewing platform called Centre Court 360 allowing visitors the opportunity to get the all over Centre Court experience.
Younger kids will love this adventure being outdoor in Wimbledon and trying to crack a secret code in three hours. Most of the action takes place on Wimbledon Common and the Village.
The kids have the guidance of a high-tech assistant in the form of a PDF which is packed with top tips and great hints to find landmarks in Wimbledon that hide hidden clues to progress on through the treasure trail.
There are very few places in London that you can actually visit a Windmill, but head to Wimbledon Common and you can visit Wimbledon Windmill. In 2017 the windmill celebrated its two hundredth birthday, and the famous mini landmark is still going strong.
The windmill only operated until 1864, and after the machinery was taken away and it was turned into a residence. In 1976 the first floor was opened as a museum which was then extended to the whole building twenty two years later.
The windmill is looked after by volunteers and normally admission is totally free on summer weekends.
Who would have thought that you could ever find a Thai Buddhist temple hiding in Wimbledon, but that is exactly what you can find. Wat Buddhapadipa is surrounded by Thai national flags and gold pennants to represent the King of Thailand.
It is the first Thai Buddhist temple to be built in the UK and is home to many monks and nuns. The Buddhist community was established in 1965 and the temple was completed in 1982 to coincide with the bicentenary of Bangkok.
These great ideas for days out in Wimbledon will give you and your family hours of fun and entertainment. Don’t worry about how to get to any of them, just contact your local Wimbledon cab company, Elite Car Service and we will do the rest.
