The Wimbledon Experience
Feel your heart in your throat as you wait in anticipation for the final serve. In a court with 15,000 other spectators, you can hear a pin drop as everyone waits with baited breath for the finals to begin. Skip the queues and take your seat at center court to watch the championship matches in one of the best tennis venues in the world: Wimbledon. While you’re in London, make your trip even more memorable with visits to some of the most famous attractions in Europe.
Get the royal treatment
You may not be seated in the Royal Box, but you’ll still be treated like royalty. Get up close and personal with every break point and double fault. Indulge in afternoon tea and strawberries and cream at the Gatsby Club while you wait for the match to start. Take in Wimbledon in pure comfort in the center court with its retractable roof. And, as always, retire at the end of your exciting day to a beautifully appointed room with all the comforts fit for a VIP.
London is home to over 50 attractions to explore when you’re away from the courts. The Tower of London is the oldest palace, fortress, and prison in Europe. Walk in the footsteps of kings and queens of old as you marvel at the crown jewels on display in the Tower Museum. Watching the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace is a must for any new visitor to London, but if you wish to know how it felt to be a royal lord or lady, then a stroll through Kensington Palace is just what you need. Theatre buffs would be remiss if they didn’t take in a show at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre at least once in their trip. Works of the famous playwright are performed here every day. If you’re looking for that special item to bring home, Covent Gardens is sure to satisfy your shopping needs with over 550,000 square feet of retail space.
Quintessential British experience
Why not spend a relaxing day lounging in one of London’s renowned tea rooms, enjoying the finest of teas and desserts? Celebrate one of England’s most treasured traditions and have afternoon tea in an elegant salon where you will be charmed with British elegance and fine foods. Savor delectable finger sandwiches and sip on your tea as you take in the sounds of their resident musicians.
