It’s that time of year again when our attention gets taken to a leafy little corner of South London, Wimbledon. Wimbledon 2014 will see tennis matching football as a national obsession in the hope of reigning champion, Andy Murray, to defend his title.
Murray Mound isn’t the only place to catch a bit of tennis action this summer, as it seems there’s possibilities on every corner. Here we’ve covered our favourite four picks of venues to watch next weekend’s finals:
- Surf and AstroTurf at The Trustcott Arms
This newly-renovated Maida Vale gastropub is well and truly going all-out for Wimbledon. They have even gone as far as transforming their dinning rooms into a mini centre court.

2. Made in Wimbledon at Bluebird, Chelsea
The bluebird makes for one of the best places to watch all the Wimbledon action – screening all the matches on their giant outdoor screen and served up with all day BBQ, Moet & Chandon Champagne and jugs of Pimms. Tables need to be pre booked for the Men’s Finals (Sunday 6th July) and our priced from £55. (They’ve got the grass to match).
