Plan a Summer Getaway to London Now to See the World-Famous Wimbledon Tournament
We have done plenty of event–centered flying in 2023 and fully expect it to continue into the summer months. Once the French Open is complete, all eyes will be on London for the world’s most famous tennis tournament.
Both one-way and round-trip jet charters to London are always popular among our clients. We usually spend the summer months crisscrossing the North Atlantic from cities like New York, Toronto, Dallas, and Los Angeles. There is ample opportunity to reserve one of our jets if you want to get to London. Call our flight brokers to make it happen.
Wimbledon has a prestigious history dating to the 1800s, which explains the pomp and fanfare surrounding this iconic event today. The tournament is broken into five separate events, with players competing in singles and doubles match play.
This year the tournament will take place July 3–16, and spectators can get their passes to any event in the tournament that hasn’t already been filled by queuing for available tickets. Getting tickets any time after December is considered “last minute,” though it’s not impossible.
For those not necessarily interested in attending the events, there’s much to do in the city or near the Wimbledon district.
Living it up in London
Billy Joel will light up London’s Hyde Park on July 7, 2023. When artists like Joel come to town, it’s usually tied to some other massive event, like a tennis grand slam, happening nearby. A beautiful setting like Hyde Park is the perfect summer venue to cap a night out in London.
For a more sedate affair, one that’s still historically fascinating and absolutely beautiful, check out the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. This home and garden show will take place July 4–9, 2023. We get excited about events like this for its luxury stay packages that give you access to the city and many other activities. We love finding unique and elegant experiences like these to share with our brokers and clients.
A Military Musical Spectacular will also occur at the same time as Wimbledon, July 4–6, 2023, at the Horse Guards Parade. Beginning each evening at 7:30 pm, these ceremonies offer the spectacle of precision military drills, horseback riding, music, cannon firing, and a fireworks display. The sheer volume of spectacles packed into each of these ceremonies makes anyone wonder how it all gets coordinated and executed so flawlessly. Checking out one of these ceremonies while you’re in town for Wimbledon will only add to the excellence of your experience.
Cleared Direct to London
Climbing aboard your own Gulfstream aircraft is an experience in and of itself. Flying private has exploded in popularity in the past four years and for good reason. The convenience of departing from quieter locations closer to your home direct to places like London is where our guests see the initial value of our services.
Having a dedicated cabin attendant and a pair of diligent and experienced pilots in command of the aircraft provides peace of mind. When you decide to fly with us, you know you are in caring hands. Our passion is always making your aircraft feel like an extension of home.
