Option 1 is most advisable, I think. Not just because I love Roehampton, but also because I think it's physically well-nigh impossible to queue for three or four days without being forced to leave early.
Oo, good point. I'm under the impression that so long as you show up at 6-7 you'll get a grounds pass no problem and get in quickly?
And I've heard mixed things about getting into court 1...Would 1-3am do it for Court 1?
