THE BEST PLACES TO WATCH WIMBLEDON 2019 IN CHELSEA

Wimbledon 2019 has kicked off, with the promise of another exciting tournament unfolding on the grass.

For those who don’t much fancy the schlep to SW19 and would prefer to watch all the action in the company of a crowd of fellow tennis-enthusiasts, somewhere in the sun with ready access to Pimm’s, strawberries and cream, G&Ts, all set to a soundtrack of whacked balls and epic grunts, here are the best places to watch all the on-court action in comfort and style.

DUKE OF YORK SQUARE | BIG SCREEN

The hugely popular Strawberries & Screen returns to the Duke of York Square running track, from 12 to14 July 2019, with one of London’s biggest screens broadcasting all the action from the Wimbledon’s men’s semi-finals (Friday July 12), women’s finals (Saturday July 13) and men’s finals (Sunday July 14).

Aspiring young tennis champs can get in on some complimentary tennis coaching, while pop-ups by Partridges and The Pretty Little Tea Company will serve traditional tennis treats and refreshments, or fill your picnic basket with gourmet treats from the artisan suppliers on Pavilion Road.

Head down with your picnic blankets or book a seat in the VIP area for the best view of the action here.

Duke of York Square, SW3 4LY

Bluebird Chelsea

BLUEBIRD CHELSEA

The big screen is back at Bluebird Chelsea, where you can catch all the nail-biting action in the courtyard with a stiffish G&T to calm your nerves. There’s no prettier place in Chelsea to watch the matches: this year the terrace has been transformed into a blooming English garden in partnership with Nyetimber, the fine English sparkling wine.

350 King’s Rd, SW3 5UU.

The Chelsea Courtyard

THE CHELSEA COURTYARD

The Chelsea Courtyard is screening all the matches, so you can keep an eye on the action while over dinner or cocktails. Treat yourself to a strawberry crème brulée or a special Wimbledon Deuce cocktail made from Luxardo Limoncello, fresh lemon juice, strawberry syrup and fresh strawberries.

151 Sydney St, SW3 6NT
