Wimbledon is a hugely popular event and tickets sell out quickly. It’s important to plan ahead and book your tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment. Fortunately, our Wimbledon travel packages include a guaranteed ticket for the match (or day) you want to visit.
Know What to Expect
Wimbledon has several traditions that have been upheld for over a century. For example, players are required to wear all-white clothing on court and spectators are expected to adhere to a strict dress code as well. Additionally, there are no advertisements allowed inside the grounds and strawberries and cream are a beloved snack among attendees. For most attendees, the allure of the event is how it successfully combines appealing to the modern spectator and those who love the traditional elements.
Explore the Grounds
The All-England Lawn Tennis Club, where Wimbledon takes place, is steeped in history and tradition. Take some time to explore the grounds and soak up the atmosphere. Visit the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, which houses an impressive collection of tennis memorabilia dating back hundreds of years. Famously, ‘Henman Hill’ is the grassy bank outside of Centre Court that enjoys live streaming of the action on a giant screen for ground spectators, and is named after one of England’s favourite players, Tim Henman.
Catch Some Matches
Of course, one of the main reasons to attend Wimbledon is to watch some world-class tennis matches. Make sure you plan ahead so you can catch your favourite players in action on one of the iconic grass courts. Check out our Centre Court and Court Number One packages that include the Quarters, Semis and Finals.
Enjoy The Food and Drink
Wimbledon has plenty of food options available ranging from traditional British fare like fish and chips to more international cuisine such as sushi. Don’t forget to try some strawberries and cream – it’s practically mandatory! We also recommend a glass or two of Pimms, a Cornish pastie and some afternoon tea.
Be Prepared for the Weather
The UK weather can be unpredictable at times so it’s important to be prepared for all eventualities. Bring sunscreen for those sunny days but also pack an umbrella or raincoat just in case. If you’re lucky enough to be seated inside one of the main courts, the roof will shield you from any weather!
Attending Wimbledon is an unforgettable experience that every tennis fan should aim for at least once in their lifetime. By planning, knowing what to expect and exploring everything that this historic event has to offer, you’ll be sure to make memories that will last a lifetime! Browse our Wimbledon packages now.
