Operation: Wimbledon 2005

ok i know its early...but 6 months is gonna fly by. i know few of us are planning on attending wimbledon next year so i thought id start a thread so we can plan it like put links to accomodation near to the grounds...cos this year i satyed in marble arch...expensive and the bus ride was a pain in the arse. if any of you have used accomodation b4 post the details here...i'm definatly going and dont fancy going on my own :-)

plus i just read a jen fans review in the jen cap forum and its awsome i soooo wanna go with other lindsay fans lol.

Yes, I really want to go - at the moment, I'm laying in huge hope that I'll get tickets through the LTA ballot which is drawn just before my birthday (two years ago I got them as a great 21st Birthday present as the draw was the day before and I got the letter the day after)......if i have to camp, then I'll camp! lol

Last time I went Wimby, I left the hote booking to my friend, because at the time she worked for a company that give her 50% discount on hotel rooms. We ended up over an hour and a half tube ride away in Epping (North East London) because everywhere else was full!?!?!

The Royal National Hotal is a great hotel - I used it for a college trip to London once. Although it's near the centre of London, it will only be like a half hour journey to Wimbledon. It's a short walk away from Russel Square station and just down the road from Euston. There are some details here:

http://www.imperialhotels.co.uk/royal.htm

Hotels near Wimbledon:
http://www.hotel-assist.com/hotels-w...on-london.html

From experience, I would say that if you're getting to London by train then you would be best going to the Royal National. I say this because when I last went to Wimbledon, I had to travel for another hour to get to a Hotel. It's not very good to travel on the underground with a load of heavey luggage! If I don't camp next time, I will go to the Royal National so that it's not far from Euston and I can leave my luggage there while I travel to Wimbledon.

If you're going by car, then you are probably best getting a B&B right by the grounds.

Hope this info helps.
