Romantic Getaways in London

If you are planning a couples getaway this year, you have some serious brownie points incoming. And what better way to make your loved one feel special by booking a romantic break in London, one of the best cities in the world (or maybe we’re just biased). With so much to do, it’s no surprise the capital welcomes an influx of visitors every year from all corners of the globe. But it’s also true that having so much choice in one city can sometimes feel overwhelming. That’s why deciding where to stay in London is an excellent way to get ahead of the game. 

Despite the allure of a hotel smack bang in the middle of Soho, it’s also worth considering the numerous benefits of a base a little further away from the action. Only a short train ride away from the numerous things to do in central London, Wimbledon is a charming part of the city that offers the perfect balance for your romantic weekend away. Not only is it the global home of tennis, you can ramble your way through the green wilds of Wimbledon Common or take a leisurely stroll around the quaint Wimbledon Village – you’ll feel a million miles from the madness! If you ever needed a good enough reason to venture outside of London’s zone 1, Wimbledon would be it.

Discover Our Wimbledon Hotel

Now you’re sold on the location, it’s time to find out a little more about the best hotel in Wimbledon to host your romantic city break this year.

A Dog-Friendly Hotel

It’s no secret that Britain is a nation of dog lovers and what’s more, our four-legged friends make excellent travel companions. That’s why we have taken the lead in ensuring that the aptly named Dog & Fox is a totally dog-friendly hotel. 

So if you, like us, struggle to resist those puppy dog eyes when you’re whisking away your loved one, fear not! Many of our 28 bespoke bedrooms are created with your pet in mind and offer doggy beds and doggy bowls meaning that three doesn’t always have to be a crowd.

Outdoor Dining & Garden

Nothing says summer like dining alfresco. Though sadly this year’s British ‘summer’ has been typically disappointing. But with whispers of an Indian summer ahead of us, make the most of those longer evenings for date night by booking a garden table to wine and dine like they do in the Med. 

The Dog & Fox has got a romantic and tranquil terrace which allows you to embrace the great outdoors from the comfort of the pub. Sip on a cool G&T and enjoy our seasonal, best of British menu all the while being in the heart of London. 


Sunday Roasts

Synonymous with Sundays is the classic British Roast and believe us when we say that the Dog & Fox serves up one banging Sunday Roast. Name a better way to round off a perfect weekend trip away? We’ll wait. 

With roasted joints fit for a King (or a Queen) with piles of crispy roast potatoes, bright, seasonal vegetables and lashings of chef’s best gravy, look no further for one of London’s best Sunday Roasts. 

The menu speaks for itself so have a browse, pull up a chair and get stuck in.
