Wimbledon is an unmissable part of London's summer — but not all of us are British enough to brave the queues down at Centre Court. Just give us a big screen, a jug of Pimm's and some space to chill with mates...
Enter St James's Market. The central London destination — tucked away between the hustle and bustle of Haymarket and Regent Street St James's — is serving up all the Wimbledon action you can ask for this year (and yes, strawberries and cream are on the menu).
They are live-screening the event for its entire two-week duration in their newly built pedestrianised courtyard, with deckchairs aplenty and lots of Wimbledon themed decor. It's the perfect place to soak up the sporting atmosphere — and there's a range of unique shopping experiences, exhibitions and cuisine to keep you occupied between matches.
Why not grab some food and make an afternoon of it? Local restaurants are serving from their terraces every day of the tournament, with light bites and Michelin starred meals from some of the hottest chefs on the restaurant scene — from Rafael Scully at Scully and Henrik Ritzen at Aquavit. Many venues are putting on special offers too, with complimentary cocktails when you book a set lunch at Ikoyi (home to top chef Jeremy Chan), and free Pimm's ice pops from Aspinal of London.
Sounds ace? Head down to St James's Market from 2-15 July to catch up on all the action. Situated just a stone's throw from Piccadilly Circus, it sure beats trekking down to Wimbledon. Click here to find out more.
