Giles Guide: Wimbledon

It’s that time of year again when the green and purple bunting appears all around London. The Wimbledon Championships are back on the 1st of July for 2 weeks. Whether you’re a tennis fanatic or just interested in the sport, this is an unmissable event. 

 

Get stuck in with the action this July, join the famous ‘Wimbledon Queue’ to get your tickets on the day but make sure you get there early, as tickets are sold on a first come first served basis. Don’t forget to bring a photo ID with you and download the Wimbledon app to be able to access your tickets. 

 

Once you’re in you will be able to explore the grounds and discover where the matches are being held to ensure you catch the games that you most want to see! Enjoy some delicious food and drinks from one of the restaurants, markets or bars. Even find a sunny spot on the grass to enjoy a Wimbledon picnic from one of their Larders.
