Where to watch the Wimbledon final in London: the hotspots, outdoor screens and restaurants for the men and women’s ties

​They're here! The finals are, er, finally here.

It's been an a strange Wimbledon, of endless deuces, some rather poor showings and the occasional misjudged comment from old John McEnroe. Still, for the most part, at least the weather has held.

Now, with Murray, Nadal and Djokovic gone, the world is wondering if Federer might already be making space on his trophy shelf.

Meanwhile, Great Britiain's Johanna Konta gracefully bowed out after a sterling showing, losing 6-4, 6-2 to Venus Williams. Still, there's little doubting we have a new British hero of tennis.

The Championships, which have been held in SW19 since 1877, are the only major still played on grass and are one of the most prestigious tournaments in the game. If you can't make it to the courts themselves, here's where to watch the finals across the capital.

Murray Mound, Wimbledon

​The Aorangi Terrace – add that to your pub quiz knowledge – gets almost as oversubscribed as the courts themselves, so be sure to arrive early ahead of any match you’re hoping to catch. Murray may be gone, but it's still a top viewing spot.

Wimbledon, SW19

Landsec’s Wimbledon, across London

Ugly name, but some beautiful sites . Retro, union-jack covered caravans host the screens, which themselves have fairly impressive backdrops – sure, the tennis is interesting, but St Paul's Cathedral is drop-dead gorgeous in the fading summer sun. The Victoria and Holborn spots do, however, make excellent alternatives – head to Cardinal place in Victoria and you'll be greeted by a Harry Brompton pop-up bar, serving alcoholic iced tea, while the New Street Square square has an ever changing line-up of street food stalls. There promises to be plenty of cocktails and ice cream.
