Enjoy Wimbledon on a Weekend Break, Short Break or Holiday
Wimbledon is one of the sporting highlights of the British Summer forever associated with strawberries and cream, grass court tennis action, Henman Hill (or now Murray Mount) and the all too early exits of British player. As one of the tennis World's four majors Wimbledon promises great tennis, the very best players and all the drama of a top sport event.
The Wimbledon Championship (including qualifying) takes place between 22nd June and 12th July 2015.
Whether you are lucky enough to have tickets or are aiming to get admission on the day (see below) Wimbledon is a wonderful experience to see live and soak up the unique atmosphere.
If you are visiting the Championships in South West London why not enjoy a weekend break, short break or holiday to make the most of the experience? We have some great self catering apartments in London that make a perfect base for a break. Find out more about Wimbledon below.
Start your Wimbledon Championships Break search
There is a public ballot for tickets each year which requires you to register and complete forms the December before the Championships. However Wimbledon is one of the very few major UK sporting events where you can still tickets on the day of play.
There are a limited number of tickets each morning of the tournament and these are on a first come, first served basis with the Queue starting a couple of hours before the grounds open at 9.30am.
It is also possible to Queue for late entry tickets which get you in after 5pm - these are often the best way to get to see live tennis at a reasonable cost.
Find out more about ticketing via the Wimbledon website.
Wimbledon Museum and Tours
If you can't get to the Wimbledon Championships then why not visit the Museum or a Tour. These are not available during the tournament but run for most of the year.
Wimbledon has a long and dramatic history, from its garden party pastime roots to the multi million pound professional sporting event it now is. The Wimbledon Museum allows you to explore this history from the glittering Championship Trophies to the McEnroe Exhibit and an unsurpassed tennis memorabilia collection dating back to 1555.
You can also take a behind the scenes tour of Wimbledon, in 1.5 hours you will see some of the most recognisable and exclusive parts of the Grounds.
Find out more about ticketing via the Wimbledon tours and museum.
