Wimbledon Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryWimbledon is a pleasant urban village in London SW19, with excellent restaurants and very attractive residential property – for 50 weeks in the year. For the remaining fortnight it’s the centre of the tennis world, and has been for well over a century. The ‘All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club’ organises ‘The Championships’ for both ‘Gentlemen’ and ‘Ladies’ with a smooth skill that makes this the trophy that players most want to win. Now the only grass court major, the setting is superb, the tennis is scintillating (turf provides a faster game) … and the traditional strawberries and Pimms aren’t bad either (if wickedly expensive). Tickets are balloted for months ahead – but only the two show courts so anyone can use the famed queue and see top class play at close range on the outside courts. (If you’re lucky enough to get to Centre Court, at least rain can’t spoil your fun thanks to the 2009 roof.)
