Around The World in 80 Tennis Tournaments - Page 94

The closest tube station to the tournament is Southfields station on the District (green) line. Wimbledon station is a slightly longer walk, 20 minutes as opposed to 15, but instead there is a free shuttle to and from the grounds. Buy your return tickets or top up your oyster card to avoid queues at stations. If you are lucky enough we recommend staying near Southfields or Wimbledon Village. If not then anywhere on the district line will allow easy access to the tennis. BUT for the best value for money we suggest the Generator Hostel which is probably the nicest hostel you will find. NADAL'S FAVOURITE RESTAURANT Rafael Nadal is known to frequent Cambio de Tercio during the championships (see here). This spanish restaurant in South Kensington serves the best tapas in town. Reservations are a must during the fortnight. Cambio de Tercio, 163 Old Brompton Road, London SW5 0BA. Tel+ 020 7244 8970
