The Minnesota Vikings leave Monday to play the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London, this could be the first of three games in London, as it is suspected that while the new stadium is being built, the Vikings will again head to London for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. While away from home the Vikings will be staying at one of the swankiest hotels in London.

The Vikes will call the 18th Century mansion The Grove home during their stay in London, located about 30 minutes from Heathrow airport or 18 minutes from central London, The Grove calls itself one of "the leading hotels in the world...set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside in the south of England. The former home of the Earls of Clarendon is now a championship golf resort, award-winning spa and unique venue for meetings, weddings and celebrations."

Sounds pretty nice huh? The Vikings will also practice at The Grove during the week leading up to the game. The game will be seen on CBS starting at noon on Sunday the 29th.
