Wimbledon Championships Travel

Every July over 500,000 tennis fans descend on the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club to witness the Wimbledon open tennis tournament.

It is advisable to use public transport wherever possible as the area is known to become impossibly congested at the time of the tournament, and parking is at a premium.

Suggested modes of transport for your Wimbledon Championships travel are:

By Tram – A tram service runs every 10 to 15 minutes during the day, Monday to Saturday from East Croydon to Wimbledon. In the early mornings, evenings and on Sundays the trams run at half-hour intervals. For all the latest information, times and prices click here.

By Train – Wimbledon Station is serviced regularly by South West Trains, and visitors from Central London can travel from London Waterloo. Other long distance trains also make a stop at Wimbledon but primarily between 10am and 12.30pm and between 7pm and 9pm. There is a regular shuttle bus which operates between the club and Wimbledon Station. For the latest timetable of South West Trains click here.

By Tube – Wimbledon is serviced by the District Line of the London Underground. Trains leave Earls Court every four minutes.

By Bus – London General Buses run special buses during the tournament which link Southfield Station and the centre of Wimbledon with the club. There are also special links from Marble Arch, Hyde Park Corner and Victoria to the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. For daily availability and times click here.

By Car – The easiest way to get to Wimbledon is via the M25. Then take the J9 or J10 exit and use the A3 northbound to the A219 – Tibbet’s Corner in Putney. Then it is as easy as following the AA signs directly to the venue. Please be aware that there is limited parking on-site and no parking is allowed around the venue. Offenders will have their cars towed. Morden Park does offer parking and there is a free shuttle bus to the club.

In Raynes Park there is a car park in Coombe Lane, next to the railway station and in Morden there are four options to choose from: Kenley Road car park, seven minutes walk to Morden Station, Morden Underground car park in Kenley Road, Safeway’s car park in London Road and the York Close car park, also off London Road.
