Looking for some great places to watch the Wimbledon final in London this weekend? The Wimbledon Final is fast approaching (Sunday 14th July) and what an amazing two-week tournament it’s been. If you want to watch it go out with a bang then we’ve got the perfect round-up for you. From big screens, rooftop terraces, restaurants, Champagne and more, here’s where to watch the Wimbledon Final in London this weekend:
What: One of the best places to watch the Wimbledon Final in London; Camden Market’s North Yard has been transformed into Camden’s very own Centre Court to celebrate the final. Astroturfed and complete with ball boys and girls providing a restaurant to lawn delivery service, Londoners can sit back, eat, drink and enjoy the tennis action in front of North London’s biggest outdoor screen.
Why: There will be an al fresco table delivery service to complement your outdoor viewing experience. Simply grab a table on the ‘green’ and place your food orders from any of the North Yard’s restaurants via the Camden Eats App then all you need to do is enjoy the tennis while the Market’s ball boys and girls deliver your order directly to your seat on the lawn. To tickle your tastebuds, the North Yard’s restaurants, cafes and fine food delis have created a whole host of Wimbledon-inspired specials. Just some of these delights include The Camden Grocer serving a ‘North Yard Mess’ alongside Gusbourne English sparkling wine and craft beer on draught from English brewers, Thornbridge. The Cheese Bar will be serving their London made burrata and seasonal cheese platters while vegans can enjoy a twist on the classic ‘Strawberries and Cream’ freakshake from Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner. Promising scrumptious food, refreshments, and tennis, Camden’s Centre Court might just be one of the best places to watch Wimbledon this weekend.
