Wimbledon Tennis Tournament: Where to Stay
Are you excited about Wimbledon? Us too! Tennis, Pimms, strawberries and (hopefully) sunny skies - there’s certainly a lot to look forward to. And with one of the world’s biggest tennis competitions just a couple of weeks away, now is the time to book your last-minute hotels.
If it’s your first time going to the Wimbledon tennis tournament, you might be interested to hear that the championships have been held at Wimbledon’s All England Lawn Tennis Club since 1877. Today, it is one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world, attracting over half a million tennis fans to watch the tournament live.
While London is always busy, it’s no surprise that southwest London can get even more hectic during the Wimbledon fortnight. But don’t panic if you haven’t got round to booking a Wimbledon hotel just yet. Holding onto the last minute might even secure a cheap Wimbledon hotel deal.
To help you out, we’ve put together a quick guide on where to stay for Wimbledon, with some fantastic London hotels available to book through the PlansChange website.
Hotel Du Vin Wimbledon
If you’re looking for hotels close to Wimbledon All England Club, Hotel Du Vin Wimbledon is just 1.2 miles away and about a 2-minute drive (or 20-minute walk). This luxury 19th Century property is set within 34 acres of parkland adjacent to Wimbledon Common and is the epitome of the English countryside. While favoured for its elegant, tranquil setting, the hotel is also extremely well-connected with Wimbledon Village close by and the centre of London just 30 mins away.
With a beautiful Orangery overlooking the gardens and a terrace for al fresco dining, it’s the perfect place to retire after a day of tennis, with an enticing Italian-inspired menu to indulge in.
Hotel Du Vin is one of the most popular Wimbledon tennis hotels, so rooms are likely to go fast. However, it’s still worth searching your dates on PlansChange to check availability. Also, check out our Resale Deals page to see if anyone is selling a hotel booking for Hotel Du Vin Wimbledon that they can no longer use.
