Wimbledon finals weekend - watch, wear and eat in style

Get outside and enjoy all the action.

Wimbledon finals weekend is only days away and the weather forecast for the weekend is looking great. It's a perfect opportunity to slap on some sunscreen, put on a hat and take to the great outdoors to enjoy the greatest sporting event of the season. So whether you are shouting for Murray or rooting for Lisicki you'll want to do it in style.

Where to watch

Giant screens are popping up throughout the country and Bristol is no exception, with two screens at Cabot Circus - the South West's biggest shopping destination. Visitors can soak up the atmosphere of the world's most famous grand-slam in a quintessentially British fashion - relaxing in a deckchair in an English garden setting. There are plenty of opportunities to grab a thirst-quenching drink from one of the nearby cafes and delis. And if you have little ones who haven't grasped the excitement of the tournament, don't worry, Cabot Circus has plenty of giant games to keep them entertained while you watch all of the action from SW19.

What to wear

Wimbledon is about the fashion as much as it is about the tennis and the strawberries - and less is definitely more. Wimbledon whites are an essential part of any tennis outfit, and this year, white is a huge fashion trend too! Be careful to plan your outfit to avoid looking like a ball girl - give the short pleated skirts a miss and think on-trend midi skirts or a chic white dress. Careful planning of footwear is also essential; opt for a wedge for a more relaxed, but stylish look. Accessorise with a purpose and to be prepared for all eventualities - a stylish set of sunnies and a gorgeous white bag. And finally, with the sun set to shine, remember to stay safe in the sun by following these top tips from Cancer Research UK.

What to eat

Wimbledon offers the perfect excuse to shake off those picnic blankets and get together with friends - whether you are planning a visit to one of the many pop-up picnics around the UK, or simply soaking up the atmosphere of the tournament. Wimbledon is all about being British so why not support your local produce markets and serve up locally produced cheese, breads and the quintessentially English scone from some of Quakers Friars own restaurants and deli's.
