But, according to google, its only 0.9 miles away from queens club (hammersmith) so should only be a 10 minute walk or so? Route seems simple too:

1. 1. Head south from Butterwick - go 106 ft
2. 2. Bear right at Talgarth Road - go 0.1 mi
3. 3. Turn left at Fulham Palace Road - go 0.5 mi
4. 4. Turn left at Greyhound Road - go 0.4 mi


Will have to make a choice I guess on friday, but thanks again for the info! Always nice to have locals knowing the drill
And West Kensington station is even closer. But I'm not sure if that one is also closed. But if it's just Baron's Court that's closed then West Ken is very near indeed.

Re: Who's going?

Right im planning to go next week.

Choice between Monday, Tuesday or Friday. Which does everyone think is the best day to go? Im guessing Tueday? just wondering what matches will be on Friday on court 1?

Dont have tickets so planning to queue and intend to get seats for court 1. If so what time do you think I need to arrive to get seats for court 1?

Thanks

If you don't have centre court tickets then I would definately go Monday or Tuesday. There will be alot more matches going on the outside courts those days.

Re: Who's going?

Well allstar, having a grounds pass at queens is useless really Last year, I arrived about 30 minutes before ancic-gasquet, and I queued to get onto court for 2 hours. I had only got in, after the match was done. Its only good if you plan to go on the other courts apart from court 1 (there are a few other courts used alot during the first few days so you will be ok), as on court 1 you wont get a seat if you leave for the toilet

Queens sell too many tickets for the size of the grounds.
