Get the Most Out of Wimbledon 2019
 

Staff writer – May 18, 2018 – Updated May 22, 2019

The Wimbledon tennis championships will be held from July 1 to July 14, 2019. Especially if you are staying for more than one match, you will need something to do in your free time. While your favorite tennis stars are definitely the event’s biggest attraction, there is much more to Wimbledon than watching tennis.

1. Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum

The world’s largest tennis museum covers both the old and the modern: it has tennis-related artifacts from 1555 and interactive touch screens. Take a guided tour for the best experience. And part of your tour will be conducted by John McEnroe’s ghost! That’s right, the ghost will tell you about his dressing room and how he prepared for a match when he was alive.

2. Visit Wimbledon Windmill
 

This 19th-century windmill is now a museum featuring interactive exhibits and detailing the history of windmills. For the Dr. Who fans out there, the 1966 episode “The Massacre of St Bartholomew’s Eve” was partially filmed at the windmill.

 

3. Ride a Horse
 

Enjoy a leisurely horse ride at Wimbledon Village Stables, where 25 horses and ponies await you. Professional trainers are on hand if you are not an expert rider.

 

4. Catch a Show
 

Wimbledon is home to a number of theatres for adults and children. Check out the New Wimbledon Theatre, an Edwardian theatre with a golden winged statue on its dome.

5. A Day at the Farm
 

A farm, in London? Yes! Deen City Farm is an urban farm. They teach visitors (some of whom have never been to a farm) about where their food comes from. The farm has an alpaca, chickens, cows, ducks, farm cats, turkeys, ferrets, and more!

6. Do a Pub Crawl
 

You simply cannot visit the British Isles without eating and/or drinking at a pub. Try brunch at the Old Frizzle (especially the Sunday roast!) or a burger at the Rose & Crown. Traveling with your four-legged best friend? Dogs are welcome at Hand in Hand and will receive complementary dog biscuits while you eat a pie. And of course, they all have great beer and most have large screens to watch sports, including tennis.

7. Breakfast at the Wimbledon Farmers’ Market
 

On Saturdays, head for the Wimbledon Farmers’ Market, where local farmers bring their goods to sell. Along with the usual fruit and veg, you will find fresh breads and other baked goods that are perfect for a Saturday morning feast.

8. Stop by the Tea Lawn
 

Speaking of food, the Tea Lawn has a buffet and bar, as well as pizza and, of course, strawberries and cream and jugs of Pimms. There is also live music every day.

9. Take Time to Meditate
 

Located at Wimbledon Parkside is Wat Buddhapadipa, or the Buddhapadipa Temple, the first Buddhist (Theravada) temple in the United Kingdom. From the outside, the building looks like a transplant from Thailand. Inside, you will find murals by Thai artists. Stop inside to meditate and then walk around the pond and bridges outside.

Wimbledon 2019 will be legendary, and it will probably be two-time champion Andy Murray’s last match. Watch him and the other superstars, and enjoy all that Wimbledon has to offer.
