Step Back In Time To The First Wimbledon

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Stella Artois

Travel back in time to the smoggy streets of Victorian London, and discover a little-known tennis tournament called Wimbledon.

You'll meet a debonair detective, Her Majesty Queen Victoria, and a host of colourful Victorian characters on your time-travelling trip; you can even indulge in some pies made by expert culinary creatives, Bompas & Parr.

And if all that time travel makes you thirsty, feel free to sample a Belgian beer, trying to make a name for itself in Victorian London... a beer crafted by a certain brewery called Artois.

After sampling the burgeoning brands alongside your mysterious Victorian guide, you'll be whisked into the present to enjoy some more contemporary entertainment and beverages, with big screens showing Wimbledon 2016.

The Time Portal, a celebration of the two origin stories behind Wimbledon and Stella Artois is brought to you by the talented immersive theatre team behind Alice's Adventures Underground, Les Enfants Terrible.

The Time Portal runs from 7 -10 July, from noon-9.40pm. Tickets cost £13.50-£18 (including a £1 booking fee) for each 40-minute theatrical experience, including two free drinks. Visit to find out more.
