Hi everyone,
My son and I are in London from 1st July to the 6th of July.
We often go to the Australian Open in Melbourne and would love to see the tennis at Wimbledon when we are in London.
How much do the tickets cost
Would there be any available at this time
Any advice about Wimbledon, or London in general would be much appreciated, :)
Thanks, Gitta.

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:
http:////www.wimbledontennis.co.uk/ but advance tickets do seem very expensive!
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:

good luck!
