You can't pre-book tickets at Wimbledon and as evilpandas has said you can camp overnight, especially if you'd like the chance of a show court (Centre Court, Court 1 and Court 2) - it's very well organised now. If you don't fancy camping, follow dirtylittlefunker's advice about going to Southfields station as early as you can. An alternative is to start queuing around 4pm. Prices to get into the grounds (and see the outside courts) go down after 5pm and you can still get to see some good tennis this way, especially in the first week. If the weather is good, the tennis can go on until 9pm and now Centre Court has a roof... about 10 years ago
England and the UK has lots to offer and all interests are catered for. Obviously, London is one of the great capitals of the world and that could be another travellr Q&A in itself! To give you a flavour: - hike, rock-climb or paraglide in the countryside - Lake District, the Peak District and, closer to London, the New Forest - see a football game - tickets for the main clubs will be expensive, but try one of the lesser known teams - go surfing in Cornwall - eat fish and chips on Brighton pier for a typical seaside experience (good nightlife too) - walk along the South Bank in London - visit the historic cities such as Oxford, Edinburgh, as well as London - hop on the Eurostar to visit Paris and Brussels The list is endless, but hope this is useful.

Train is a fantastic way to see more of southern France and the Liguria region of Italy. The train from Nice will take you through along the beautiful southern coast (including Monaco/Monte Carlo), crossing over the border to Italy (the first stop in Italy is Ventimiglia). The train from Ventimiglia then carries along the Italian coast of seaside resorts to Genoa. You can then go to Genoa direct to Milan. Flying from Nice to Milan will involve a stop, depending on which airline eg. via Zurich with Swissair. I've done this journey (the other way) and can really recommend it if you have time.
