There are two ways of getting tickets
- one is to buy allocated tickets, probably through a tout, though I think it's probably horrendously expensive.
- other is to queue up on the day, 'cos they hold back a few hundred tickets for people who turn up. You might have to camp out overnight to get them for a big day!! I think that the earlier rounds cost about £25 this way, not sure about later ones.
magykal1 seems to have answered the question on the tickets quiet well-be prepared to que for a very long time if the game's an important one.
you could always try this website to get more info:

Wimbledon is pretty uneventful as a little town apart from the tennis-if your main priority is to see the championship then stay around wimbledon as it allows you to easily get there-however if you want more things to do-its probably better having accomdation midway in a south westerly direction from central london as travel into the centre won't take as horrendously long!
heres a general london website for more things to do as im not sure what you'd be interested in:
