Every year, the green lawns are mowed down, the rackets are strung and people camp outside one of the most prestigious establishments in England and covert to all things British, complaining, queuing and strawberries.
Wimbledon is renowned for its strawberries and cream and this year is no exception.
For those that didn’t get tickets and want to cherish this moment, here are some strawberry inspired recipes.
