The ATP Champions Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall bring together some of the biggest stars and legendry players of the game going head-to-head in the intimate surroundings of one of the world’s most iconic venues. There are two matches per session, one competitive singles match and one entertaining doubles match – the player line-up obviously not known at this stage but can include any of the game’s greatest names from McEnroe, Becker, Edberg, Ivanisevic or Henman. Your top priced seats are in the front choir with a great view across the length of the court.
Saturday 2 December: Arrive and check into your rooms at the luxury 4 star Cavendish Hotel, St James’s in the heart of London’s Mayfair and convenient both for West End theatre and perhaps some early Christmas shopping. Your rooms will be ready from 3 pm. There will then be a transfer by taxi to the Royal Albert Hall at 4 pm in order to enjoy a two course pre-tennis supper in the hall restaurant before taking your seats by 6 pm for the tennis, play finishes at 9 pm when there will be a transfer back to the hotel.
Sunday 3 December: The London Charterhouse - A morning visit to the museum and a guided tour. Originally founded as a monastery in the 14th century, the Charterhouse has survived the centuries as a private home, a school and as alms-houses. The visit includes the Master’s Court, Great Hall and Chamber. Lunch can be purchased in their small café.
In the afternoon a visit to The Postal Museum and Mail Rail – a brand new museum opening in mid-2017 bringing together five centuries of communications history. Interactive galleries and extraordinary collections reveal the fascinating story of Britain’s postal heritage plus a chance to ride on the subterranean Mail Rail. On a specially made train you will journey back in time through the original tunnels and station platforms under Mount Pleasant, which have been hidden from view for more than 75 years and were a vital artery in Britain’s communication network.
Monday 4 December: Check out of the hotel, leaving your luggage with the concierge, taxi for optional morning visit with timed entry to Kensington Palace for the latest exhibitions Diana: Her Fashion Story and Victoria Revealed together with the State Apartments. Make your own way back to the hotel for departure – luggage can be left at Kensington Palace during the visit.
