There’s something special about the Wimbledon Championships.

It’s not only the oldest tennis tournament, having first been held in 1877, but it is also the most prestigious, with Wimbledon winners becoming instant tennis legends.

For those who were lucky enough to get a ticket to this year’s Championships, the atmosphere and sense of occasion experienced are unlike anywhere else.

But for those that didn’t, the extensive TV coverage means that you won’t have to miss a beat.

Do you still want to feel the atmosphere of being there in person? Why not attend one of the many outdoor screenings taking place throughout the capital.

 

Here are our top 10 places to watch Wimbledon in London if you haven’t got a ticket...
