Travelling to the UK for Wimbledon

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Wimbledon is one of four grand slams in tennis and its reputation in the tennis world is unsurpassed. To win Wimbledon a tennis player needs to not only master the intricacies of grass courts but master the changing weather conditions and the excitable crowds who will often have their favourite.

Wimbledon is the oldest tennis competition in the world and takes place in the leafy suburbs of south west London at the All England Tennis Club. The tournament takes place over a period of two weeks (although has sometimes been extended due to the rain) at the end of June/beginning of July.

Although it is February it is definitely time to start planning your trip to Wimbledon if you are looking for accommodation as it is an incredibly popular event and accommodation is at a premium in the local area. You can search online at the Accommodation Directory for Greater London hotels and ideally you want to be in the Merton area of Greater London.

You can also search for specialist Wimbledon accommodation sites as a number of the homes in the Merton area open their doors to provide homestay services for those seeking accommodation on the doorstep of the All England Club – again these fill up quick so act now! Alternatives are to look for short term lettings of apartments and homes.

Top tips for travelling to the UK for Wimbledon

  • If you are planning on spending more than one day at the tournament try to find accommodation in the Wimbledon area to reduce travel times
  • If you are spending the whole fortnight in London consider picking up a UK SIM card for your mobile to reduce costs – this is great if you are in a group and need to stay in touch
  • Consider buying a tube pass rather than buying single tickets if you are going to be travelling regularly on the London Underground – this will help you keep costs down
  • Food and drink can be expensive in the grounds of the tournament so consider preparing a picnic to enjoy in the grounds of the tennis club – although I definitely recommend putting some budget aside to sample the famous strawberries and cream
  • The weather in June/July in the UK is notoriously changeable so pack clothes that are suitable for warm weather, windy chills and of course rain!!

Other tourist attractions in the Wimbledon area to take advantage of during your visit are:

  • Morden Hall Park – a former deer park with beautiful walks amongst meadows and waterways, you will feel like you have been transported far away from the hustle and bustle of London
  • Wimbledon Common - home to the famous Wombles of Wimbledon you can enjoy the fresh air and stroll across this beautiful landscape (keep your eyes open for a Womble)
  • The Lawn Tennis Museum – while at Wimbledon don’t just enjoy the thrills, spills and skills of the modern day players but take the time to find out more about the history of this great competition and how it holds a place dear in the heart of the British public!

Finally, enjoy your trip and fingers crossed for some good weather!
