Brit Fred Perry wins Wimbledon – 1934-36
John Isner VS Nicolas Mahut, the Longest Match in History. 11 hour 5 minute match resulting in a tie break in the fifth set - 2010
Andy Murray was the first Brit, since Fred Perry, to win Wimbledon in 2013
After another dramatic year at Wimbledon which saw previous champion Rafael Nadal knocked out in the second round in dramatic fashion by Dustin Brown, Andy Murray proved he was back on form until facing Number 2 seed Federer in the semi-finals and Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer to clinch the Championship for the second year running in an epic 2 hour 56 minute battle, anything can happen at Wimbledon.
Djokovic wasn't the only one celebrating because prior to this, the Ladies Final saw Serena Williams win the Ladies Singles Title and securing the 'Serena Slam' - holding all four major tennis titles. She last held this back in 2003.
Who knows what record-breaking feats will occur at this year's world famous Tennis Tournament in London's SW19. Will Andy Murray return to become Wimbledon champion again? Will the infamous British weather have its say and will there be more shock exits? The only way to find out is on a self-drive or coach break to Wimbledon!
Our Wimbledon coach trips and packages offer one of the only ways to guarantee your place at Wimbledon outside the public ballot. Each Wimbledon package includes return coach travel (except self-drive breaks), accommodation with breakfast, hotel-to-venue transfers plus ticket for No. 1 Court, with access to the other outside courts and the large screen TV at "Murray Mount".

Mini Guide To Wimbledon
What to pack
Brolly, camera and sun lotion/hat are standard, as well as a small water bottle to refill at the Drinking Points throughout the Grounds. Something to sit on is also advisable for “Henman Hill/Murray Mount” to avoid a wet derriere!
What to wear
There’s nothing more changeable than the beloved British weather, so go prepared for all eventualities if you’re not going to be under the luxury of the centre court roof. You’ll be outside so layers are a great way to tackle any heat waves/mini monsoons. Whatever the weather, comfy. breathable shoes are a must as there can be a lot of walking, especially if you’re catching the action between courts.
Before you go
The night before you visit, watch the highlights on TV as this will tell you who will be playing and on what Court for the following day. You can also find out the Order of Play via the programme which can be purchased in the Grounds or via the huge Score Board which is located near to Centre Court.
Wimbledon is a classy lawn tennis tournament not a football match, so noisemakers, rattles and klaxons are not the order of the day, and neither are signs or flags larger than 2 foot, so don’t get over enthusiastic with your Union Jack! Before a match make sure that your mobile phone and camera flash are switched off, don’t get up or woop during a rally, and unless you want to be frowned upon, don’t applaud a net call or double fault.
Avoid the £2.50+ per punnet of strawberries by packing your own picnic. You’re allowed to take a 40cm x 30cm x 30cm bag (any larger it will be prohibited) and 1x bottle of wine or 2x 500ml cans of beer. A lot of people take mini plastic bottles of wine or cans of Pimms. Do note that no hard-sided items such as picnic hampers, coolboxes or briefcases of any size are allowed in the Grounds.
Timing is everything
Seats for the outside Courts are unreserved so if there is a match you desperately wish to see, make sure you get there in plenty of time. If you have tickets for the Show Courts (Centre, 1,2 and 3) make sure you arrive in plenty of time as matches tend to start on the dot of the scheduled time.
Couldn’t get Centre Court?
If you’re at Wimbledon for Finals weekend, you can catch the action on Centre Court via the Big Screen located opposite “Henman Hill/Murray Mount”. Get there early to get a good spot!
If travelling by train, don’t pay out extra for a cab or bus - the Grounds are only a 10-15 minute walk away and the promenade can be quite exhilarating if the weather is good. If you wish to meet some of the Players and perhaps grab an autograph, head over to Autograph Island, and get your ticket scanned when leaving the Grounds. This means that a new ticket can be generated and sold for a nominal charge for charity.
