The top outdoor spots for your weekend Wimble-watching
Don’t want to stay indoors and watch the Wimbledon finals at home this weekend? We’ve rounded up some of the top spots in London where you can catch the centre court action, if you weren’t lucky enough to bag yourself tickets. Expect cocktails and snacks, deckchairs and some serious London views… Strawberries and cream, anyone?
Cardinal Place, Victoria
Harry Brompton’s pop-up bar will be serving both alcoholic and non-alcoholic iced tea between 11am and 9:30pm to keep you hydrated during the matches. There will also be a very special sampling of Tyrell’s special edition ‘Strawberries and Cream’ popcorn on Friday 8th July – don’t miss out.
New Street Square, The City
On weekdays you can catch all the action from New Street Square in the heart of London. Tennis fans can quench their thirst with delicious cocktails from pop-up bar Kanaloa and enjoy the action from a deckchair or massive Union Jack cushions.
One New Change roof terrace, St Paul’s
If cityscape views are your thing, then where better to head than a rooftop terrace? Sit back and relax with a cocktail or two by Madison, and watch the finals in style. LICKALIX will also be on hand with delicious natural ice lollies to keep you cool in the heat. See you there?
Granary Square, King’s Cross
Another central London location is ‘Strawberries and Screen’ in Granary Square – nearby bar The Lighterman will be serving tennis-themed food, and KERB will be serving some of the best street food around. You’ve got to be quick if you want to grab one of their 50 deckchairs, though!
St Katharine Docks, Tower Hill
If being by the river is your thing, definitely head down to the marina for your Wimble-watching needs. St Katharine Docks are showing the tennis all weekend as part of their eight-week Summer of Sport season.
Pop Fields, Brixton
With a huge screen and plenty of food and drink outlets nearby, Pop Brixton are screening a whole host of sporting events this summer, including Wimbledon. If you’re the active type, you can even get involved in some sporting action yourselves!
