Want to watch the tennis, but can't face hours of queuing in the heat? There are plenty of venues around town where you can watch the Championships and soak up the atmosphere without standing in line.

Here are our picks:

BIG SCREEN: Love Wimbledon's Big Screen has returned to The Piazza in the Broadway this summer. With an astroturf summer lawn and deckchairs, it's the closest you'll get to Murray Mount without having to queue for hours. Watch the Championships live for free until 10pm on July 12.

Wimbledon Times:

CELEB SPOT: Enjoy the tennis among the rich and beautiful at The Dog & Fox in Wimbledon Village. Just a seven minute walk from the All England Lawn Tennis Club, the pub is buzzing with tennis fans watching live matches on its five+ screens. Bars and a BBQ will keep you going, with live music entertainment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Look out for the tennis superstars on their way home from court.

Wimbledon Times:

FESTIVAL POP-UP: Cool down with a summer drink, street food from Young's Burger Shack and live music in St Mark's Place during the tennis. The nextdoor Alexandra Pub is offering street party visitors a free drink voucher during the tennis fortnight.

Wimbledon Times:

DRINK AND SWING: Murray fan? Look out for the world number three's convincing lookalike at The Swan Pub in Wimbledon Village. He was at the bar last week to launch its 'Swingballdon' event. Have a go at swingball in the pub's garden before sipping a pint this weekend.
