Hospitality House

Our Hospitality House is a private event space just a short walk from the All-England Club gates. Fully-staffed throughout the fortnight, it’s where we host all of our guests and friends. Whether you want to sit and enjoy brunch in the garden, drop off a jacket before you hustle off to tennis, or relax with a post-match cocktail, the Hospitality House is made for it all.

Grand Slam Tennis Tours guests enjoy the Hospitality House's garden during the annual Wimbledon kick-off party.

Gourmet food by a private chef

Food is provided by renowned London-based chef Milli Taylor. Milli and her team join us daily to prepare a fresh brunch, afternoon tea, beautiful bowls of strawberries and cream, and special recipes. 

Tickets, brunch, and relaxation

In the morning, guests are welcome anytime after 10 am. You’ll collect your daily tickets and enjoy brunch in the house or garden. Some guests stay into the late morning to kick off the matches on TV before leisurely joining the Centre Court crowd. Others like to be the first through the gates when they open. Since Wimbledon allows re-entry, guests often drop by in between matches. Whether it's for a quick drink or snack in the garden, to shed their jacket if the day has warmed up, or to drop off some newly-acquired bags from the gift shop, you're welcome back at any time.

Last year, the Hospitality House’s featured artist was Craig Mooney. Mooney’s paintings showcase dramatic moments and heightened emotionality, and are known for being expansive and expressive. Though a representational painter, he incorporates a myriad of abstract qualities throughout his paintings. In his figurative work, Mooney romanticizes his subjects and presents them in an atmospheric lens that is best described as dreamlike. His father, a physician and amateur artist, taught him how to create oil paintings from discarded art supplies found on city streets in midtown Manhattan. Craig is represented in galleries throughout the US and UK.    

Surprise guests

Wimbledon is a place where our partnership with Topnotch Management is able to elevate the experiences we create. This past year, guests came home after evening matches to find Sam [Querrey] and Steve [Johnson] eating BBQ chicken and relaxing in the backyard. Then, the next day, those very same guests sat in official Debenture seats to watch Sam and Steve play on Centre Court. Upon returning to the Hospitality House, Fred Stolle was on the couch having a sandwich and talking about the match. These are not standard tourism experiences, which is exactly as intended.
