The All England Club is one of London’s most iconic sports venues, and will once again by hosting the upcoming Wimbledon Championships in 2019. As the only Grand Slam held on grass, tickets are in high demand – and so ahead of the event, we’ve compiled this quick guide to help our guests reach the space where tennis history is made…
The All England Club
This club is arguably the most famous tennis club in the UK, and perhaps the world. Hosting Wimbledon for almost 150 years, the venue has undergone several redevelopments to ensure it keeps up to date with the changing needs of the sport. Situated in Wimbledon, the All England Club is around 45 minutes from the Devonshire Hotel by car, but for most, relying on London’s extensive public transport system is a much wiser and simpler way to travel while staying at the Devonshire Hotel London.

For those travelling from further afield, Haydons Road Railway Station and Earlsfield Railway Station are both approximately 25 minutes from the venue, ensuring no matter where you explore while staying at a London Paddington hotel, you can easily reach this famed tennis club.
Planning Your Journey
We recommend travelling from Paddington Station as the best way to reach the All England Club from the Devonshire club. There are two primary ways to travel from this location – via the train or taking the bus. Both have their own pros and cons. Some find the tube too enclosed and claustrophobic, whilst others consider the comparatively slow pace of the bus to be a waste of time which could be spent sightseeing. Whichever method you choose, you’ll soon be on your way to enjoying a trip to the All England Club.
Travelling by Train
Leaving from Paddington Tube Station, the trip to Wimbledon Park Tube Station on the District line takes approximately 25 minutes in total, calling at 10 stops before reaching its destination. Taxis are available at the station and provide a speedy way of getting to and from the club itself.
Travelling by Bus
The bus is a more leisurely trip on the no. 36 service, changing to the 156 at Vauxhall Bus Station. The trip takes around 1 hour and 35 minutes to complete and includes a short 5-minute walk to Wimbledon Park.
