Fly to London. Upon arrival you'll be met and transferred to your hotel. A Newmarket Tour Manager will be available to assist with check-in and provide any assistance you may require. The evening can be spent at leisure at your hotel.
Following a leisurely breakfast, you will depart by coach for Wimbledon, arriving at the Championships at around lunchtime. Spend the rest of the day enjoying the action at the world's foremost tennis tournament, until play stops for the day. A coach will be on hand to transfer you back to your hotel.
This morning we'll visit Windsor. Wander the pretty streets of this lovely riverside town, or pre-purchase tickets to Windsor Castle and see the magnificent State Apartments that have welcomed British monarchs in comfort and style for many centuries.
In the afternoon we'll return to the airport in time for check-in and your flight home.

Development work at No. 1 Court
The first phase of major work has commenced on the installation of a roof on No. 1 Court. This means that for The Championships 2017, there will be almost no cover for ticket holders in No. 1 Court, and we would ask you to bear this in mind when preparing for your visit, as the weather conditions may be hot or cold, wet or dry.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 15 minutes.
Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
Rain Affected Play
In the event that there is less than one hour's play on any day on the court for which tickets have been bought, you will receive a ticket price refund but you would not be entitled to any other refund payment.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
Access at Wimbledon
Negotiating the large Wimbledon site, which covers more than 40 acres in total, may be physically challenging. We therefore recommend that those with a significant disability and/or those using a wheelchair are accompanied by an able-bodied helper. We do offer a limited number of wheelchair spaces on No. 1 Court which, if required, should be requested at the time of booking. (Please note that you must provide your own wheelchair).Back to top
