Wimbledon is a British institution, and WFD can’t think of a better way for those of us who don’t have tickets to Wimbledon than to spend some time in the luxurious surroundings of The Shangri-La Hotel.
Swinging into a summer of sport, Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London transforms its terrace at LÁNG, the hotel’s artisan deli and cake shop on the ground floor, to bring a taste of SW19 to hotel guests and Londoners alike.
Widely considered as the most prestigious grand slam tournament in tennis, Wimbledon’s traditions are celebrated across the city, and from 26 June to 12 July 2015, the tournament will be broadcast live on an astro turf terrace with a fun selection of Wimbledon-inspired patisseries served throughout. Themed treats will include Centre Court, a lemon mousse tart; SW19, a Pimm’s jelly shot atop cream; and Grand Slam, a tennis ball-designed creation with champagne and strawberry filling. Alongside the themed trio, guests will also be invited to enjoy tournament classics, strawberries with cream, Pimm’s and champagne, all while soaking up the warm summer days and cheering on their favourite grand slam players.
