1 Mount Murray, Wimbledon

Can’t get into the courts? Then Murray Mound (formerly Henman Hill) with its big screen is the next best thing. For Grounds Pass ticket holders only (not Show Court ticket holders), if you can get yourself a good seat, Murray Mound is as close to the action as you can get without actually being pitchside.


2 Floating pontoon at St Katharine Docks Marina

Watch Wimbledon from a floating pontoon in the West Basin of St Katharine Dock in east London. Just look for the large floating white tent, you won’t miss it. Wimbledon screenings on the pontoon take place from 12pm to 6pm every competition day except June 30 when the pontoon is closed for a private reception. You can bring your own refreshments onto the pontoon, although alcohol, alas, is not permitted. Screenings are open daily from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
