Wimbledon Championships

Getting into the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis Club requires quite a bit of prep. Seats on Centre and Number One courts are distributed by ballot the preceding year, although enthusiasts who queue on the day may gain entry to the outer courts. There are around 500 tickets each for Centre Court (from £5​6​on the opening days) and Courts One (from £45​) and Two (from £4​1​), and around 3,000 more for ground admission. You can also turn up later in the day and pay a reasonable rate for seats vacated by spectators who have left early.

Tickets are not sold over the telephone, but on a strictly one per person queueing basis; payment is by cash only. Many turn up with tents in tow the night before to secure their place in 'The Queue'. If you can't face the urban camping, you'll need to turn up long before 9:30am. Don't be tempted by touts or other unauthorised agents, buying from them means you'll be refused entry to the grounds.

The highlight of every summer in London is when wimbledon returns. The atmosphere is electric and if you are lucking enough to get tickets of centre court or court number one, you are in for a treat. In week one, you will see the likes of Serena practising on the outside courts and can get up close and personal. Strawberries and cream are a must, they are a little pricey, but guaranteed it will be the best strawberry you have ever eaten. Anyone for Pimms?

Amazing atmosphere, fantastic tennis and so very British. A must do event in London - don't forgot to pack a bottle of wine (or 2 beers) each in your picnic!

Wimbledon Championships sum up what part of what makes Britain what it is. As a sporting event, it is like no other not just because of the quality of the tennis, but the surroundings and environment that it all takes place. It is a proper day out, spoil yourself when you go. Immerse yourself in the trimmings of the event. Once in, everything is accessible. Watching the big matches from the hill on the big screen brings another dimension of Wimbledon Championships to life. We may watch it on the TV, but seeing the game in person is a real experience. It gets busy but the grounds are made for servicing the fans and movement of people.
