Wimbledon tickets- centre court, & ground?

Hi, I went to the website and still do not understand the access one will have with the tickets. If I have a centre court ticket, does that mean I can only watch matches at the centre court, and not any other courts? What do I get to do with a ground ticket?

most of the tickets at wimbledon are allocated well in advacne of the tournament

the tickets that are available are on a first come, first served basis which is why you sometimes see people sleeping outside the night before

Thanks everyone for the previous replies, we've decided to go Saturday morning and queue, but a friend has decided that we must all go for 5:30 in the hopes of getting a show court ticket. Is this a really stupid idea? Surely all show court tickets would be taken by overnight campers and by turning up at 5:30, we'll only end up with exactly the same ticket as if we turned up at 8? Or is there actually any hope of a show court ticket at 5:30?

>>>I want to go to Wimbleton - what are good recommended seats<<<

It doesn't matter because you can't choose (maybe you can if you are in the Royal Box? Who knows) and all seats on the same court, same day are the same price. Send off your stamped addressed envelope to Wimbledon before 15th December and hope that sometime in February or March you will be allocated some seats at random (which will NOT be in the Royal box, but could be anywhere else). You can't even choose which day you want to visit. The ballot is random.

Of course if you queue you can choose the day you attend, but as far as I know you just take the tickets available and be grateful in that case. No seating choice (except there is a special section for wheelchair users).
