How to Get Tickets to Wimbledon 2024

If you aren’t a Wimbledon ticket holder currently, then here’s how to get tickets. Wimbledon’s famous ‘Queue’ offers a unique experience and a great day out. After all queuing is what us Brits do best… Right? It doesn’t even have to be a chore if you do it well. Make sure to book your Wimbledon hotel the day before you plan to go so you can get to the grounds hassle-free and in plenty of time. The earlier you start the quicker you can expect to get in the grounds, so, if you want to be there in time for the start of the matches then make sure to be there as early as possible. The grounds don’t open till around 10am so we recommend bringing things to keep you entertained like a picnic, a book or a pack of cards, plus a blanket to sit on so you can rest your legs! Finally, just remember to soak in all the atmosphere and camaraderie of Wimbledon because it is truly unique. 

Once you make it to the gates and receive your grounds pass then you will be able to access all courts including No.3 Court, Court 12 and Court 18, as well as The Hill, where you will be able to see all the action from Centre and No.1 Courts. These tickets are excellent value and great for if you are searching for cheap tickets to Wimbledon.

If you are looking for Centre Court tickets, No.1 Court or No.2 court tickets then there are 500 tickets available each day. This requires a more intensive queuing experience and arriving several days in advance, but it can be done! An easier and cheaper way to access these tickets can be through the ticket re-sell kiosks once you’re inside the grounds, these tickets can then be purchased at a reduced fee as they become available throughout the day.

Within the vast Wimbledon grounds, there is something for everyone, from unique experiences and activities, bars with a view and stunning displays, without even mentioning the tennis! We can’t guarantee you’ll get round it all in a day but we can guarantee an excellent day out. Plus, with the Bentley hotel as your base your Wimbledon Experience will be a delight from beginning to end. So what are you waiting for? Book your Wimbledon 2024 trip today!
