Wimbledon’s Over. What next?

So Wimbledon’s over and there’s an Andy Murray and Sue Barker shaped void in your life. But don’t despair.

There are still plenty of exciting things to look forward to this summer.

1. Music Festivals. Are you a live music fan? Can you cope with portaloos? Head to Scottish T in the Park, Suffolk’s Latitude, or Green Man in Wales, which are all coming up in the next two months.

2. Outdoor Theatre. Take your family and blankets to see a spot of Shakespeare in all its traditional glory, outside in various venues such as Regent’s Park, Nottingham Castle or Stratford-upon-Avon.

3. Royal Baby. Dig out your Jubilee Flags to wave when the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to the future king or queen. Will the baby have Kate’s flowing locks or William’s bold patch? We wait with baited breath.

4. Pub Gardens. It’s time to time the perfect pub garden to while away sunny evenings. Check out your local beer festival too, mixing the best of British – ale, pork pies and folk bands.

5. We’re all going on a summer holiday. You may not have had the money to get to the Caribbean this year, but with all this glorious weather, why not enjoy what Britain has to offer and have a bargain weekend away? Head to the great British seaside and build a huge sandcastle, or try surfing. Pack or the tent and take a walk in the Lake District.
Or head to the Capital and see the sights. Beat the crowds by hiring a London chauffeur. No stuffy tubes or queues, just you and your private car ready to take you wherever you fancy.

6. Picnics
Lashings of ginger beer, anyone? Not much makes me feel more British than packing up a basket and enjoying a picnic. Food just tastes so much better in the open air.

7. Switch sports
If you’re stilling missing the tennis, you can reuse your tennis whites on the cricket pitch. Cheer on England at the Ashes – it’s such a civilized sport, you even get tea breaks!
