As soon as our plane landed, our class went on a walking tour of city and saw Big Ben, the Parliament building, Westminster Abbey and more. I couldn’t believe I was walking throughout a city I’ve admired so much filled with rich history.
The tour was perfect. We got to go into Center Court and the surrounding courts, got to see the leader boards from the matches from this past summer, went on the hill with the Wimbledon logo, entered into the players’ facilities, and then got to see the media center and interview room! I loved getting to hear how Wimbledon markets itself as a traditional sporting and cultural event, as well as a place for true fans of the game.
