The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) offers parking facilities for visitors looking to drive to the Wimbledon Tournament.
Of all the ways to get to Wimbledon, driving is typically one of the longest and most expensive ways to get to the AELTC.
If you’re planning on arriving by car, our top tips are to rideshare with other fans or members of your party, and arrive at The Championships as early as possible. Traffic around South London can be very heavy, and you could see serious delays.
In this guide, we’ll be running you through where you can and can’t park at Wimbledon, as well as several alternative options for drivers if you are looking to arrive by car.
Where can I park my car during the Wimbledon Tennis Championships?
On an average day at the Championships, the AELTC welcomes around 42,000 people through their gates. During the tournament, the population of the Wimbledon area almost doubles in size.
This surge means there is very little room to park in the surrounding streets of Wimbledon itself, with heavy traffic moving around the vicinity of the Wimbledon Grounds.
Can I book parking at Wimbledon?
Yes. There are various car parking options for The Championships, and while things can get busy, it is best to book your parking place well in advance.
Wimbledon attendees can book a car park space in either Car Park 6 or Car Park 10, located on Wimbledon Park Golf Course. If you have a debenture ticket then you can reserve a space at the designated Debenture parking, Car Park 8.
Directions to car parks are well signposted around Wimbledon village.
Be advised, while you can arrive on the day and park in either Car Park 6 or 10 at the golf course, these two official car parks can be very busy. You will have to pay a higher parking fee of around £30 per car and £40 for minibuses, if you don’t book ahead.
Again, bookings for the Debenture Car Park should be made as early as possible through the AA Wimbledon Parking booking system or by calling the AELTC’s booking desk on +44 (0)1256 493535.
Can Debenture Ticket Holders reserve special parking spaces?
If you’re attending the Championships with a Debenture Ticket, you can book a parking space in Car Park 8 which is reserved only for Debenture Ticket Holders and disabled parking.
There is also a special Debenture drop-off zone for Debenture Ticket Holders inside Car Park 8.
Debenture ticket parking must be booked by the debenture holder either through the myWimbledon app or by calling the AELTC’s booking desk on +44 (0)1256 493535.
How soon can I book a parking space at Wimbledon?
To avoid disappointment, visitors can reserve their parking space online as early as Spring 2022 via the AA’s website. Online reservations will receive a £5 discount and a guaranteed space in one of the Wimbledon Park Golf Course Car Parks.
Are there any other car parks near the Wimbledon grounds?
You can also park at a various other nearby public car parks.
St Mary’s Church in Wimbledon Village (SW19 7BP) operates a first-come-first-serve parking service. This parking costs around £25, with the proceeds going to local charities.
Is there any street parking near the Wimbledon tournament?
There are parking restrictions in place on the streets around the Grounds during The Tournament.
Some local residents rent out their driveways during the Championships fortnight. If you are searching for last minute parking, look out for residents holding up signposts for parking facilities outside their homes. These parking spaces may be cheaper (though perhaps less secure) than some of the Championship-owned parking facilities.
Is there disabled parking at Wimbledon?
Blue badge holders can also use one of Wimbledon’s accessible car park spaces. These spaces are situated in Car Park 6 and Car Park 8, usually on the flattest and most accessible parts of the golf course grounds to enable easy access to the tournament.
Costs for reserving a blue badge parking space are the same as those for a standard parking space, with discounts available for those who book their spaces online or via this phone number +44 (0)1256 492110.
Is there a Park and Ride service to The Championships?
There were no official Park and Ride services for the 2021 tournament. It is not yet known whether Park and Ride will be an option for 2022 – so keep an eye on the official Wimbledon website.
