Wimbledon 2009: The Places to Stay


As Wimbledon fever hits the UK, you may well want to be a part of the action. Watching Wimbledon from courtside is the thing to do this summer, yet it can be a huge hassle for people. Tourists flood into London, filling up the buses and trains and making it a tricky to journey for anyone not living in London. So to treat yourself, why don’t you find a hotel to stay in for the tournament this year?

Did you know that you can be living in the heart of central London and be no more than 30 minutes away from Wimbledon Station? Hotels close to Wimbledon sell out early, and those that don’t will be sure to raise their prices in anticipation. Therefore, it’s a smart move to stay slightly further away from the courts this year. We’ve selected a handful of the top hotels to stay in London whilst still being in easy reach of Wimbledon. From these hotels you can be sitting in the sunshine, sipping on a glass of Pimms and watching the tennis within 30 minutes of stepping out of your hotel door (Wimbledon queues excluded…).

The Baglioni Hotel

If you’re a fan of the top Italian player Andreas Seppi, then the Baglioni is sure to attract with its beautiful Italian décor. The hotel is in the perfect location for a spot of the best shopping, cultural highlights, the Royal Park Gardens and of course, Wimbledon.

The Metropolitan Hotel

The Metropolitan London: Impressive with its modern design interiors and fantastic location of being situated in the heart of London on the exclusive Park Lane. Its adopted Asian-inspired themes offer holistic treatments, therapies and massages which will be much sought after when you return from a long and hot day sitting in the stands.

Knightsbridge Hotel

The only hotel that offers great value for money in one of the most expensive areas in London. The Knightsbridge is ideal if you want more than just tennis, as it is closely located to some of the best shopping to be found in London. Its convenient and upmarket location makes it a great get-away for the Wimbledon adventure, yet still close enough to get to the courts in the morning.
