Where can you buy tickets for Wimbledon?
Tickets are available through the Wimbledon event website here via a successful public ballot application. This is the most cost-effective way to purchase tickets if you plan ahead and are lucky enough to be selected. A limited number of same-day (or “on day”) tickets may be available via the Queue; this is only a realistic option for persons within commuting distance of Wimbledon. Another option is to consider the Wimbledon Debenture Ticketing Service – who has covered the event for over 30 years.

Where is the best place to stay for Wimbledon?
The best place to stay for Wimbledon is in the Wimbledon neighborhood of southwest London. For those combining a trip to Wimbledon with other London sites, the corridor along the northern side of the Thames River on the Underground District Line presents an attractive option. This includes the neighborhoods of Fulham, Chelsea, Kensington, & Westminster.
Be smart and book early. Prices will go up closer to tournament time and nearby lodging options will dry up.
How do you get to Wimbledon? Are public transport options available?
The address for the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club is: Church Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 5AE
Public transport is available for Wimbledon and recommended by the tournament. Nearby underground (or “tube”) stops include: Southfields on the District Line and Wimbledon on the District and Main Lines. The Wimbledon stop is popular as it is also a connection point for traditional train/rail service. However, the walk from the Wimbledon station to the tournament is a bit long and uphill, so if you have the option – get off at Southfields. That said, a shuttle service from Wimbledon station to the tournament is available for a fee and tickets can be purchased here.
To check schedules and see all available transport options, please see the Transport for London official website.
For flights, London’s Heathrow (LHR) or Gatwick (LGW) are your closest and best options; both are major international airports.
