Trip Report short trip report: London and Wimbledon for tennis

Jump to last reply

Last week we made our annual trip to London for the tennis. We found a great hotel which is described below.

Wimbledon tennis tickets are hard to come by. You can enter the public ballot or get tickets via your membership of a tennis club or buy a package. You can also queue but you need to be in the queue extremely early and be prepared to be disappointed.

The hotel was a revelation as we mostly get a hotel in a poor location. This one was ideal. The Mitre House Hotel, despite its cheapness (£80 per room per night: $100) is spotless and staffed by wonderfully cheerful staff. You also get a cooked breakfast. The location makes it: it is a 5 minute walk to Paddington Station, it is a 10 minute walk to Hyde Park, it is 20 minutes walk to Notting Hill, and Kensington Palace a mere 30 minute walk. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants of all types: Brazilian, Italian, Asian, Gastropub, Greek, Fish and Chip – you won’t go hungry. Wimbledon is very easy to reach as the underground tube goes direct to there from Paddington. A small inconvenience is the language ability of the dining room staff who do not deal with the out of the ordinary, but if you nod your head in response to what they offer you will have no problem.

There are some atmospheric pubs minutes away from the hotel. We had an excellent lunchtime meal at the Pride of Paddington – they have wonderful sandwiches and pies. In addition, and a real clincher, they serve Reedley Hallows brewed beer “Old Laund Dark” – delicious. Reedley Hallows is nestled at the foot of Pendle Hill (this is where Quaker religion was born and where the Pendle witches are from, it has connections with Pennsylvania) in the north of Engkand.

That afternoon we walked along the length of the Serpentine in Hyde Park. This is a lovely walk as there is lots of wild life along the route and you can feed blue tits out of your hand. There are a few very good café/bars along the east side of the Serpentine. Returning to the hotel you can walk along posh Park Lane.

That evening we had a meal at the San Marco which is an Italian Restaurant serving staple favourites pizza and pasta, very cheap and a very good standard, cost: £33 total including wine.

Wimbledon was a wash out and we were very unlucky but this did not dampen our spirits and we used the time making friends and exchanging experiences of past Wimbledons.

That evening we had a lovely meal at Ryath Indian Restaurant in Paddington. The curries are made from fresh ingredients and we thanked the staff very much for their food and service – this was shrugged off as if they are used to such comments. It was very cheap: £38 total including beer.

The following day (Sunday) we walked in the opposite direction towards Notting Hill. We passed by Kensington Palace and instead went to Holland Park. We had never been there before and found it a magical place – lovely gardens and cafes.

We met friends in a famous pub in Notting Hill, scenes in Notting Hill the movie were set here. The food is excellent but its not cheap.
