How can you watch it?

Large numbers of tickets have already been randomly allocated to those applying for the public ballot, but many fans will also be camping out on the Club's lawns on the night before matches they want to see, in the hopes of getting tickets released on the day. Those with Grounds Passes will also be able to watch matches on the big screen from Henman Hill. Around London, screens have been set up to allow fans to watch from the city, and we've rounded up our favourite of these. Or if you prefer the comfort of your living room, naturally BBC1 and BBC2 will have full coverage of the tournament.

Where can you eat?

The Ivy Café

There are a number of places to eat within the grounds, with a strong emphasis on strawberries and cream, and Pimms, which you can always grab on the go. A variety of bars and cafés can be found on site, and the Wingfield Restaurant takes reservations for lunch. If you're in the neighbourhood but prefer to eat outside the grounds themselves, we recommend The Ivy Café in Wimbledon, or for traditional pub fare The Earl Spencer or The Crooked Billet.

If you don't fancy putting a picnic together yourself, we've also rounded up our favourite places to get a ready-made picnic, whether a delicious selection of sandwiches and pastries from Gail's, or a full-blown bespoke banquet from Harrod's.

There is no official dress code for Wimbledon, but naturally it's the perfect place to show off your summer dress collection. If we had to choose one couple to represent Wimbledon style, we'd go for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who have an excellent line in breezy tennis-whites-inspired numbers and smart linen blazers. And under no circumstances forget your sunglasses - it won't go well.
