I've been lucky enough to get a ticket for one day of this year's championships. I'll be travelling with my 14 year old son and would welcome any advice on good places to stay.
We'll be arriving at Paddington on the Heathrow Express and I would really prefer to have a tube journey to our hotel that doesn't involve a change of line, or alternatively a journey that can be done by taxi without a fare to make me faint! However, I would also like the hotel to be in an area that gives us an easy tube ride to Wimbledon itself. Does such a location exist? I've been looking at the Hammersmith area as a possible option - what's that area like? Are there better options? We won't have a lot of time for sightseeing, so I don't mind if the hotel is not in the city centre - I wouldn't even mind staying somewhere close to the All England Club if there are any good hotels nearby.
Basically, we'd like to stay in a decent hotel in a safe area that's convenient for the journeys we need to make, but I don't have an unlimited budget. I'd be very grateful for any advice.
