Strawberries, rain delays and the occasional temper tantrum are just some of the things associated with Wimbledon, one of most popular sporting events of the summer. Celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, the competition is sure to be fierce. Wimbledon championship matches start on June 20th, so make your way to London’s SW19 area to see the likes of Serena Williams and Andy Murray battle their rivals.
If you can’t make your way to the way to the All England Lawn Tennis Club, don’t worry. You’ll still be able to catch lots of the tennis matches showing on big screens in pubs all over London. To find out where to hang out with the locals, try some traditional ales or simply soak up the sun in one of the city’s many beer gardens, check out our Top Bars in London feature.
London is one of the coolest capitals in all of Europe, so after you’ve gotten your tennis fix at Wimbledon you won’t have any problems finding other things to do. One of my favourite things to do in London is to hop on the Tube and head out to Camden. It’s one of many unique neighbourhoods just waiting to be explored. I love Camden because it’s a really alternative spot, with a brilliant market and lots of great cafés and bars. Plenty of other fantastic London neighbourhoods are featured in our free London pocket guide and London videos.
If you do fancy sitting on Wimbledon’s centre court to enjoy serves and strawberries, don’t forget we’ve got plenty of availability left at our hostels in London.
