Unfortunately we can't all be lucky enough to get tickets for Centre Court. So instead, you could show your support for Andy Murray at one of these free London screenings.  A few strawberries and a glass of fizz, and you could be on Centre Court itself.

Cardinal PlaceBankside Mix; or New Street Square

As part of the collective Great British Summer event, you can enjoy all the tennis action live and completely free at any one of these outdoor screenings in central London.  Refreshments are on offer, but if you get peckish, check out the Wimbledon meal deals at the neighbouring restaurants.

Duke of York Square

The huge 14ft screen at Duke of York Square is the next best thing to courtside tickets.  There's strawberries and cream on offer, plus you can treat yourself to a champagne tipple from the Pommery champagne tent.  Partridges restaurant nearby are also offering an array of summer specials for the occasion.

Pimms in the Park

Hosted at Potters Field Park by Munch Street Food, this event has pulled out all the stops for the tennis championships.  Of course there's the expected strawberries, champagne and, er, Pimms, but also a good ol' hog roast and the popular Munch Street Food itself.

Boxpark Shoreditch

Probably one of the hippest places in London to go and cheer on the British Number One.  Chill out with the über cool Shoreditch sect and sip cocktails on the upper deck from noon–8pm every day.

King's Cross Granary Square

You're invited to create your very own Henman Hill right in the centre of King's Cross. The screenings start at noon every day and end at 6pm, but they of course extend viewings for any nail-biting Murray matches.  Deck chairs are provided, as well as strawberries, refreshments and KERB street food.

Good luck Murray!
