Wimbledon Championships 2019

1 – 14 July 2019

Wimbledon Championships, the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world, is one of the highlights of London’s sporting calendar.

What to expect?

For two weeks, spectators can expect a quintessentially British experience of Pimm’s and strawberries and cream, while watching tennis legends compete for champion titles. Will Novak Djokovic maintain his winning streak, and can Serena Williams reclaim her title at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club?

Plus, with the new roof at Wimbledon’s No 1 Court ready in time for this summer’s Championships, there won’t be as many frustrating rain delays.

Can I still get tickets for the Wimbledon Championships?

If you weren’t one of the lucky ticket ballot winners there’s still plenty of ways to get involved in all the action.

Dedicated tennis fans can be found queuing for hours early on the day of play or camping out the night before to buy limited premium tickets, one per person queuing, for Centre Court, No.1 Court and No.2 Court. Tickets for the final four days on Centre Court are sold out in advance.

Several thousand Grounds Passes are also available each day with unreserved seating and standing on Courts No.3 - 18. You may even get lucky and be able to buy returned Show Court tickets after 15:00 at a fraction of the price. If you don’t want to miss any of the Centre Court action, head to the legendary Murray Mound (or the fondly remembered Henman Hill) and watch the matches on the big screen.

If you’re queuing early for tickets, check our first and last trains table below and Wimbledon’s queuing for tickets advice.

How do I get to Wimbledon?

Wimbledon station is the only mainline station to get to the Wimbledon Championships. Trains from London Waterloo to Wimbledon run every few minutes so you can expect to be there in less than 20 minutes.

There’ll be queuing systems for shuttle buses and taxis, or alternatively it’s a 15 – 20-minute walk to the courts. There’ll be plenty of staff and volunteers to guide you and answer your questions.

If you’re getting there early to queue, check our first and last trains.

Things to do in Wimbledon

For those two weeks, Wimbledon goes tennis mad too. With no queues or costs, soak up the electric atmosphere of Centre Court on the Big Screen at The Piazza. Then walk across the road to the aptly named Centre Court shopping centre where you’ll find all the top high street brands.

Take a short walk up Wimbledon Hill to the pretty Wimbledon Village to find more local and high-end shops, restaurants and pubs. Feeling peckish or thirsty? Then head to the Rose & Crown with plenty of food to indulge in as you watch on their outdoor screens, or book a table in Tam's Tennis Court at the Crooked Billet to watch the matches.
