5 Things to do in London That all Wimbledon Fans will Love
Just because you missed out on court-side tickets, doesn't mean you can't immerse yourself in the Wimbledon vibe. From watching the matches on one of London's pop-up screens, to sipping on a glass of freshly made Pimms... No one needs to miss out this year!
1. Wimbledon Village
Wimbledon Village will be offering a vast array of attractions whilst the tennis is in action. If you really want to soak up the atmosphere, head to The White Onion for some fresh, summery cocktails or Aubaine if you want to dine alfresco in their beautiful garden - they will also be creating their own Murray Mount, with turf and a large screen to catch all the drama.
2. Christabel's Wimbledon Wonderland
For those of you who want to party a little bit harder we've found the event for you. Christabel's Wimbledon Wonderland will be set on the grassy rooftop of Brunswick Studios in Maida Vale. Attendees will be able to watch the Wimbledon semi finals over a fantastical BBQ feast along with an array of seasonal cocktails. For more information visit Christabel's.
3. British Picnics
Whether you stay in Wimbledon, or venture somewhere else, nothing epitomises British summer more than a picnic in the park. Hyde Park has to be one of the prettiest areas to kick back and relax. You can even pre-order your picnic from websites such as Melrose and Morgan, diminishing any effort and transporting you to a calm, serene place.
4. Great British Summer Series
Great British Summer is bringing the tennis to you for free. They'll be hosting three pop-up screens around London including Cardinal Place, One New Change in St Paul's and New Street Square in Holborn. Who needs court-side tickets when you can sit back, relax and watch the tennis highlights in your favourite areas of London. For more information visit Great British Summer.
5. Clapham Tennis Courts
Now if you're feeling energetic, why not get a taste of the action and play for yourself? With many courts in London, you can get your heart pumping with a tennis game of your own. The courts on Clapham Common were recently renovated and are open to anyone for just £5.
