Wimbledon is one of the world’s most iconic sporting events, with strong ties to the royal family, tradition, and summer in Britain.
This must-see event returns this year between the 7th and 15th of July, providing the perfect reason for a summer trip - be it for business or family travel.
141 years of exclusive tennis
It was back in year 1877 when Wimbledon first hosted the event that would become the Championships.
Soon after its launch, the gathering of aristocrats, successful industrialists and financiers, and the finest tennis players in the British Empire, became one of the premier events on the Victorian era social calendar.
Fast forward to 1968, when the first grand slam at Wimbledon transformed the event into the high-value, competitive tennis arena that it is today.
In 2018, as Britain proves resilient through a challenging time in her history, events like Wimbledon are great reminders that tradition and a commitment to excellence remain strong values in the modern, cosmopolitan UK - and the tennis offering keeps getting better by the year.
The 2018 lineup: Serena Williams and Roger Federer in the spotlight
As the Wimbledon action draws nearer, two big names are being punted as likely winners.
The 36-year-old Roger Federer has announced his return to Wimbledon to defend his 2017 title and claim his ninth victory at the event. Having reclaimed the men’s world number one title earlier this year, Federer seems poised for victory - but not if his rival Rafael Nadal can help it.
The legendary Serena Williams missed the Wimbledon Championships in 2017, but she has announced her return this year in a bid to win the event for the eighth time in her career. She last won at Wimbledon in 2016.
After the day’s action, London awaits
