Wimbledon 2024 – time to visit London!


Wimbledon, the world’s oldest, and probably most prestigious tennis tournament is just around the corner, with matches taking place from 1st to 14th of July. It’s time to prepare for the action on the court – and to book that next London trip!

Defending champions Carlos Alcaraz and Marketa Vondrousova will both be playing and will discover their first-round opponents when the draw takes place on 28th June. Another highlight includes seeing Jamie Murray alongside his younger brother Andy – the siblings have discussed teaming up this year for the first time at their home grand slam. And with Andy considering retirement this summer, his matches will be a priority to secure seats for this year.

There is hopefully just enough time for some great recoveries as well before the action commences – we are hoping that 24-time grand slam winner Novak Djokovic will recover from his knee injury from the French Open; Emma Raducanu also suffered a knee injury and skipped the French Open to ensure she is at peak performance for Wimbledon. And don’t forget to look out for this year’s young up-and-coming players, including Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Coco Gauff.

After all the excitement at Wimbledon Park, you will of course need a fabulous hotel to stay at and recharge your batteries. We have done the work for you and offer some of our suggestions for your upcoming stay in London.

The Cadogan, A Belmond Hotel

As a guest at The Cadogan, A Belmond Hotel, you’ll have access to the neighbouring private Cadogan Place Gardens and tennis courts, if you’re feeling inspired after watching the professionals. The hotel will also provide all the equipment you’ll need, so you can try your luck at serving an ace! It’s just a short amble to Sloane Square station, where you can jump on the District line for 20 minutes to Southfields, the closest station to the Wimbledon Park entrance. Alternatively, it's only 40 minutes by car.

Raffles London at the OWO

The Old War Office building, built in 1906, opened in late 2023 as Raffles London at the OWO following a sensitive renovation with a series of stunning suites, nine restaurants and three bars. Opt for the special tennis-inspired afternoon tea in collaboration with Sipsmith in the Drawing Room or choose from the Courtside Menu in the light-filled Saison by Mauro Colagreco, enjoying the blooming floral display in Wimbledon colours. The hotel is just a 10-minute stroll from Embankment on the District line, or 45 minutes by car to Wimbledon Park.

Corinthia Hotel London

Situated on Whitehall Place, Corinthia Hotel London is also right by Embankment for easy access to the District line. But if you’re feeling extra indulgent and really celebrating the matches, make sure to stay in one of the penthouses, where your personal driver can pick you up from Wimbledon and whisk you back to the hotel in 40 minutes. The Musician’s, Hamilton and Royal Penthouses all have private rooftop terraces with incredible views, making for a serene place to watch the sun go down after a thrilling day.

The Savoy Hotel London

Everyone has a special relationship with Pimm’s and Wimbledon. Celebrating a similarly special relationship between the UK and the US, enjoy an exceptional Pimm’s cocktail in The American Bar at The Savoy London, Britain's oldest cocktail bar. From Wimbledon Park, take the District line to Temple for half an hour, or the car for just under an hour. You’ll join a long list of illustrious guests – since the bar opened in 1893 it has served countless well-known figures, from Ernest Hemingway to Winston Churchill. Choose a suite overlooking the Thames to enjoy the spectacular views and conclude a thoroughly British day.
