As one of the sporting world’s most prestigious events, Wimbledon has attracted a large audience of VIP guests for decades. From world leaders to musicians, movie stars and more, every year a selection of VIP guests visit Wimbledon.
Of course, Wimbledon’s most famous VIP guests are the Royal Family. The famous Royal Box offers the best seats on the Centre Court –seats that are usually occupied by friends of the Royal Family and public figures.
While the ultimate Wimbledon VIP experience is usually reserved for people that are invited to The Championships as guests of the Royal Family, it’s possible to get your own VIP experience using one of several Wimbledon VIP tour packages.
In this guide, we’ll look at the VIP experiences on offer at Wimbledon and share the best package tours and special offers for people that want to enjoy an unforgettable experience at The Championships this year.
Getting the best seats in the house
While the action at Wimbledon takes place on a variety of courts, there’s one court that becomes increasingly important as the tournament progresses: the Centre Court.
Built in 1922, the Centre Court at Wimbledon is one of the world’s most well known tennis courts, having hosted numerous champions and the setting for some of the world’s most memorable matches.
The best seats in the Centre Court are, of course, the Royal Box. With one of the best views available of the Centre Court, the Royal Box has hosted celebrities, world leaders and, of course, the Royal Family over the years.
Famous celebrities to have attended Wimbledon in the Royal Box include numerous Prime Ministers, Captains of Industry and CEOs; Cliff Richard – who famously sang to the crowd during a rain break in 1996; former US President Bill Clinton and hundreds of others.
While the Royal Box is off limits to most Wimbledon attendees, a huge range of high quality seats are available. Debenture tickets are available for seating in the second section of the Centre Court, offering some of the best views available.
Better still, debenture seats come with a variety of VIP benefits. People attending Wimbledon on debenture tickets receive access to the exclusive Debenture Lounges, including waitress service restaurants and bars and private cloakrooms.
