London calling? Then how about enjoying free accommodation in this stylish London townhouse? This Guardian Home Exchange offer is located in London’s lovely Wimbledon Village. The home is arranged over four floors and is right next door to The All England Lawn Tennis Club (although not available for home swap during the Wimbledon Championships when their home is rented to players). The family are open to a home swap over Easter, for two weeks in both July/August and October, plus always happy to talk about a UK weekend home swap too.
“James and Maria Jose have a lovely home not far from Bethnal Green tube . It is on two levels with two sitting rooms and surprisingly quiet for being just behind the main road. We arrived at our home swap home to find a welcome bottle of wine in the fridge, useful instructions on how everything worked and ideas of where to eat and visit in the area.
We walked to Brick Lane for a meal the first night, and found the area buzzing with activity. On Sunday morning we walked to Columbia Road for breakfast and a look around the flower market and shops, and later on we also walked to Victoria Park for a picnic as we had great weather. The area has a lot going on and its pretty easy to get around by bus, tube and train, but also there’s plenty nearby to visit on foot.” Rachael

Thanks to all who have already entered (some great photos and stories). There is still time to send us your travel photos and be in with a chance of winning a Kindle Fire.
We’re looking for photos that best encapsulate your favourite travel experiences. It could be a shot of your children eating ice-cream on a beach, a selfie in front of a famous site or beautiful scenery, or, if taken on a home swap, your family enjoying dinner in your hosts’ home.
