What is Wimbledon?

Taking place at the All England Club in South West London since 1877, Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It now attracts over 500,000 spectators for two weeks every year and has some very old-school rules about what the players can and can't do.

It doesn't get much more quintessentially English than this. No matter what day of the tournament you go on there's always a really buzzy atmosphere and a colourful friendly throng looking to have fun. If the sun shines it takes the day to another level. Sitting out on Henman Hill and watching on the big screen - that's worth doing for a bit even if you have centre court tickets just to soak up a different kind of atmosphere.  Once you've had a pint of Pims you'll be well on the way to having a very memorable day in SW17. Probably better have some strawbs while you're there too.
