The sun is out, the strawberries are hulled and the tennis treats are in abundance. It can only mean one thing – the Wimbledon fortnight is upon us. But the idea of spending your summer indoors, glued to the TV is highly disagreeable. Luckily, there are a ton of London venues ready and waiting with big screens. Pull up a deck chair and get ready for all the tennis action, this year taking place between the 1st-14th July. This is where to watch Wimbledon in London.
