Must-do: watch a final on Centre Court at Wimbledon

Ranked #27 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.


The championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, otherwise known as Wimbledon, take place each year in the months of June and July.

One of the four Gland Slam tournaments (along with the Australian Open, French Open, and US Open) winning at Wimbledon still represents the pinnacle of tennis sporting prowess.

Demand for tickets to any of the games in the tournament is huge so if you are looking to secure some you will either need to go into a public ballot (introduced back in 1924) and keep your fingers crossed that the computer picks you at random, or book through a reputable sports tour company.

But be warned, getting guaranteed Centre Court tickets to the finals will cost you big time – in some cases upwards of $6000!


Sport’s greatest gathering – snare yourself a ticket here and you’ll never have a finer sporting achievement.”  

– Craig Tansley
