How To Celebrate The Tokyo 2020 Olympics From London

Quarry Lodge, Marlow, Buckinghamshire


Team GB’s rowers may have had bad luck at Tokyo, but they’re normally one of our strongest sides. Perhaps a house with direct river access, its own boathouse and Henley just short trip up the river is the training ground that would make the difference. This charming three-bedroom house has all that as well as an abundance of period features and a spacious roof terrace. Sounds like a winner to us. Available through Hamptons for £3,250,000

St Georges Hill, Weybridge, Surrey


Golf is one of the newest Olympic sports, which means you’ve got half a chance of breaking in. Spread across a sprawling double plot, this ten-bedroom Surrey mansion has direct access to a championship standard golf course as well as an onsite tennis club and private pool. And with resort style grounds and numerous terraces and balconies, there’s plenty of space to relax after a hard days training. Available through Jackson-Stops, price on Application

There’s even a sand school for practicing your show-jumping and dressage routines. Available through Lillicrap Chilcott for £1,750,000

Tignes, France


If 2024 is just too long to wait, then don’t forget that the Beijing Winter Olympic games (set to begin in February 2022) are only a few months away. For aspiring snow-sports-stars, there’s nothing like a ski in ski out chalet. Located in the sprawling Tignes and Val d’Isere resort, this dreamy chalet has direct access to the slopes and the lifts as well as a modern alpine vibe that co-opts old ski-lifts into furniture.
