Menzies Summer of Sport

June 24, 2013

Although you probably wouldn’t believe it if you looked out of the window, this month sees the start of the great British Summer. And while we all know that doesn’t necessarily mean the promise of a whole lot of sunshine, there is one thing us Brits can always be certain of at this time of year – some incredible sport.

Here’s a look at the top sporting events you can look forward to over the next six weeks and, as always, the nearest Menzies hotel for the best possible stay:

Wimbledon (24 June-7 July): The oldest tennis tournament in the world, and many would say the most prestigious. For a guaranteed advantage, stay at our London Chigwell, Luton or Gatwick hotels.

British Grand Prix (28-30 June): A much-anticipated race in the FIA Formula One World Championship calendar currently held at the Silverstone Circuit near the pretty village of Silverstone in Northamptonshire. Our Woburn, Luton and Stratford hotels will have you in pole position to enjoy this thrilling event.

Henley Royal Regatta (3-7 July): Held every year on the River Thames by the historical town of Henley-on-Thames, this series of head-to-head knock-out rowing competitions is raced over a course of 1 mile, 550 yards. Make sure you’re ahead of the coxswain by staying at our nearby Luton hotel.
