If you want to turn your day out into a weekend you can. Stanford Hall has 15 guest rooms that mean you don’t have to worry about packing up and sitting in traffic at the end of the day. It’s a good idea to book early if you do plan to stay as the Hall will be busier than normal on the day of the championships.
Little ones can enjoy a bouncy castle, fairground rides, games on the grounds to pass the time before the fireworks begin. There will also be music broadcast over the area to set the atmosphere.
Visitors can get hot and cold food and drinks from vendors on the grounds. There is a bar serving alcoholic and soft drinks. Visitors are also welcome to bring a picnic along with tables and chairs of their own. No barbeques are allowed on the grounds though, as these present a fire hazard.
