What to wear in London in June (Wimbleton)

Traveling to London Late June. Planning to attend Wimbleton Tennis. Not sure of proper attire. Please advise.

It's Wimbledon, not Wimbleton.

A rain jacket is essential. It usually rains during Wimbledon. If the sun shines, wear a nice dress and a big hat. I hope you already have tickets as it is not easy to come by them.

If you can't even spell Wimbledon, what's the point of going?

This just reminded me of my only trip to Wimbledon over 20 years ago when I went with my school. I wore a nice sundress and a necklace with a bronze chain. It was really hot - we had a great time (saw Nastase play on an outer court). When I got back I had a bright green neck from my necklace - none of my "friends" had let me know. Still makes me cringe all these years later.

Whoopee off to Wimbleton myself, hopefully Jim Hemman will make it through to Saturday.

ps will I stand a chance queuing from 7.00am on the morning of getting on the Centre or No 1 Court (middle Saturday)?

Sunblock! When I as at Henley (rowing races) my neck and back got burnt even though it wasn't hot or sunny. (Yes I should know better.)
Comfortable shoes, nice looking ones.
A lot of what you wear depends on where you will be sitting. The closer you are to the posher seats, the smarter you should dress.
An aside, have you seen the tv ad for England? At the end of it Tony Blair says "Welcome"? I think the web address is britain2002.org, or something like that.(sorry, can't quite remember)It might give you info on your trip in general.
