We’re serving Wimbledon realness. Whether you’re looking for an outdoor spot in London, you’re staying in the office, or planning a virtual Wimbledon watch party as a team – here are our tips for an ace time.
What is it about Wimbledon that manages to get those of us who wouldn’t know a racket from a rally totally hooked? Between the sunshine, screeching, strawberries and champers – what’s not to love?
If you’re heading outdoors in London to watch Wimbledon, take a look at our list below and make sure you check if they need booking. With the weather on our side (fingers crossed) these spots will fill up fast so get in there as soon as possible!
If you’re feeling weather cautious and plan to stay in the office, we have some tasty Wimbledon treats to get everyone in the spirit, without needing to reach for the Pimms… although pitchers are socially distanced friendly right?
Outside spots to watch Wimbledon in London
1. Regent’s Canal, King’s Cross
📍Granary Square, N1C 4BH
Everyman Cinema has a pop-up film festival this July and is screening Wimbledon as part of the fun. Catch a match with the team in the day and turn it into a film night.
2. The Refinery Bankside, Waterloo
📍 110 Southwark St, SE1 0TF
This is another must book. The Refinery Bankside apparently has one of the largest outdoor screens in London.
3. The Piazza, Wimbledon
📍The Piazza, Wimbledon, SW19 1QB
If you’re based in Wimbledon, but not heading to centre court or Murray’s Mound, check out The Piazza with socially distanced deck chairs.
4 & 5. Eccleston Yards and Halkin Arcade
📍21 Eccleston Pl, SW1W 9AZ
📍 19 Motcomb St, SW1X 8LB
We’ve put these two Belgravia spots together as between them they promise over 200 seats. At Eccleston Yard, you’ll find deckchairs, faux grass and a Moët & Chandon ‘Frozellini’ cocktail pop-up bar. At Halkin Arcade you’ll find more deckchairs but this time it’s gin o’clock with an exclusive Sipsmith pop-up bar.
6. Cardinal Place Roof Garden, Victoria
📍Victoria St, SW1E 5JD
Deckchair service… We like the sound of that. In the rooftop garden, you can catch Wimbledon on the big screen and order drinks to your seat.
7. The Happenstance, The City
📍 10 Paternoster Square, EC4M 7DX
This one requires booking so get in there fast. With a Pimm’s Terrace, big screen and views of the city – this is a great spot to watch Wimbledon outside.
8. Canada Square Park and Cabot Square, Canary Wharf
In Canary Wharf you can catch a whole host of summer sports on the big screen and with restaurants, bars and pop-ups surrounding you, you’ll be entertained even without watching the match.
9. One New Change
📍New Change EC4M 9AF
Rooftop views of St Paul’s, drinks delivered to your seat and food from Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant – what more could you want? Well, they’re showing tennis of course. This is a free first come first served spot so get the team in there stat.
