The View from our Lens: The Championships, Wimbledon

In 2013, Andy Murray ended Britain’s 77-year wait for a Wimbledon men’s singles champion. Now, in 2016, he is unstoppable.

After leading Great Britain to their first Davis Cup win since 1936 and breaking the record for 5 wins at the Aegon Championships, Murray had his second Wimbledon victory. And what a victory it was!

The unbeatable Serena Williams also beat Angelique Kerber to win her seventh Wimbledon title and 22nd Grand Slam title. If that wasn’t enough, the Williams sisters claimed their sixth Wimbledon women’s doubles title!

There was only one way to watch the tennis this year, and that was at one of our hospitality experiences. Guests got closer to the action with official Centre Court and No.1 Court premium tickets whilst enjoying the very best in luxury hospitality. Check out some of our guests’ pictures from their day out at Wimbledon:

Guests at the Gatsby Club enjoyed the beautiful garden whilst sipping on exclusive cocktails created by MIX Global. The food was an event in itself, with lunch designed and created by three generations of the Roux family (Albert Roux OBE, Michel Roux Jr. and Emily Roux), an afternoon tea special with Martha Collison, youngest ever contestant on, and star of, the Great British Bake Off, and exquisite ice creams from Lick Me, I’m Delicious (the chocolate pretzel flavour was a special favourite!).

If that wasn’t enough, our new Whisky and Cigar lounge, The Great Gatsby, proved a favourite with guests and celebrity chefs alike!

Our overseas guests at the Wimbledon Experience were treated to breakfast on arrival, enjoyed a brilliant chef’s table, a selection of drinks and a green screen that created an unforgettable photographic momento of their stay.

Guests at the Speakeasy, our exciting private venue, enjoyed an exclusive experience tailored to make their day extraordinary. Guest speakers, the finest food, and access to the Gatsby Club garden and all its delights – there’s not much more you could ask for!

And the new look Skyview Suites were not one to miss. Guests arrived in luxury chauffeur cars to a vintage Champagne and canapé reception. With a four-course à la carte menu, Champagne bar overlooking Wimbledon, and prime Centre Court seats – you couldn’t get much closer to the action than this.

If you want to secure your place at Wimbledon next year, we have an official hospitality experience for you. If you book before Monday 1 August, you can secure your 2017 package at 2016 prices.
