Where To Watch Wimbledon 2016 On The Big Screen In London

You want to watch Wimbledon, but you missed the ballot and there’s no way you’re joining THAT queue. Nor are you willing to spend your days indoors, glued to a TV screen, when the sun’s a-shinin', birds are a-singin' and there’s Pimm’s ready for a-drinkin'.

Luckily, certain London establishments are on hand with a giant screen — and possibly a deckchair or two — to give us a front row seat from which we can fully admire all those magical Wimbledon moments between 27 June-10 July.

Watch the action from the roof on One New Change. Details below.

Granary Square, King's Cross

Strawberries and Screen pops up in Granary Square showing all the action on a big screen, with strawberries, Pimm's and other refreshments available to buy, so you can feel like you're really in SW19.
