Looking for places to watch the Six Nations 2024 in London? We can help you out there.

This year's Six Nations kicks off on 2 February running until 16 March. That's a whole month and a half of mauls, rucks, offsides and tries to soak. And if you weren't lucky enough to nab a ticket to a match, there are loads of fan spaces, boozers and bars across the capital where you can watch this year's Six Nations Championships unfold. Here's our pick of the best.

Prince, West Brompton

This rugby-centric west London pub is screening all the Six Nations action, with the bonus of Guinness food specials, competitions and events running throughout the tournament. If you're a devotee of the Black Stuff (Guinness sponsors the tournament), then look into reserving a table soonish.

Peckham Levels, Peckham

Peckham Levels is screening all the Six Nations action

Car-park-turned-trendy-hangout Peckham Levels has five 65-inch screens dotted about its cavernous space, and they're broadcasting every Six Nations match this Feb and March — head to Level 6 when you arrive. (There's step-free access.)  There are plenty of drinks to wet your whistle, while food offerings include Korean street eats, Neapolitan pizza and fried plantain. Group beer/snack packages are available too.

Vine, Kentish Town

Come for the Six Nations, stay for the shuffleboard at this fun north London boozer, which is screening everything from the first kick-off, to the final broken nose.

Boxpark, Shoreditch, Wembley & Croydon

Boxpark goes hard with its sports events, and again this year, all three venues (Shoreditch, Croydon and Wembley) are screening every single Six Nations match, which you can get stuck into alongside copious amounts of superb street food (plus pints of not-quite-so-superb Doombar).

It works a bit differently depending on where you go:
Croydon and Wembley: free entry (but no guarantee of a space); £7+ booking (guaranteed entry and a drink); 'VIP' table for up to eight people, with food and drink — north of £200
Shoreditch: free entry (but no guarantee of a space); £10 + booking (guaranteed entry and a drink)

Whichever you plump for, make sure you book ahead.

Faltering Fullback, Finsbury Park

One of London's finest rugby pubs, Faltering Fullback

This Finsbury Park favourite promises a good time all year long, and in our eyes it's one of London's best rugby pubs. The Faltering Fullback is an Irish boozer through and through, so while it's not one for those planning on draping themselves in St George's Flag, it's a brilliant option for anyone cheering on the boys in green. Line your stomach with a cracking Thai curry as you watch, and be sure to come out for air during half time — the pub boasts one of the best (and most bonkers) beer gardens in London, spread across three treehouse-esque levels. Though they haven't yet announced specific details for Six Nations screenings, we'd be shocked if they don't show the matches. Also worth noting that they don't take bookings, so you'll want to get there in plenty of time.

Belleville Brewing, Wandsworth Common

Belleville is one of the brewery taprooms screening the actions.

A smart little south London brewery with the Londonist seal of approval, the folks at Belleville Brewing Co are big fans of the rugger — screening all of the Six Nations action in their newly-embiggened taproom. Email taproom@bellevillebrewing to reserve a spot (there's a £50 returnable deposit), and guarantee yourself some above-average liquid sustenance.

One of our fave breweries in London, Drop Project is showing all the Saturday games (which includes all of England's). They're dog and kid friendly, and there's street food to soak up the suds. No need to book.

Flat Iron Square, London Bridge

Crowds of people watching rugby on screens in brick arches

Head beneath the arches of Flat Iron Square to catch all the Six Nations action broadcast on big screens, both under the railway arches, and out in the garden. Along with beer from Camden Town and lashings of street fodd options, there's hijinks, including DJs and live music, dress up photo booths, a 'Scrumbola' competition, and special guests.

Flat Iron Square, London Bridge

Three Compasses, Dalston

Also starring as one of our fave footie pubs, the Three Compasses likes to go old school, rolling down projector screens for major sports events — and that, naturally, includes the Six Nations. Tables can be booked, but jamming yourself into a half-person sized space by the bar can be fun too, if you're in the right mood for it.

Greenwood, Victoria + sister pubs across London

Premium sports lounge Greenwood's wealth of giant HD screens — the upstairs lounge alone has seven of them — makes it perfect for anyone who cares about getting a properly decent view of the match. What's more, it seems they're screening all the Six Nations action. Fair warning, though, it can get very busy, so getting down early is recommended in order to secure a seat. Better still, book a table or area while they're available.

Greenwood, Victoria. Other similar bars in this chain are Redwood (London Bridge), Broadleaf (Old Street), Beechwood (Old Street), Goldwood (Bank), Northwood (Angel) Westwood (Wood Lane) and Long Arm Pub & Brewery (Shoreditch). Yes, there are a lot of these bars.

London Welsh Centre, Gray's Inn Road

While it's fair to surmise that most of the punters here will be sporting red jerseys, the London Welsh Centre is screening all the Six Nations matches on two massive projector screens — and anyone's welcome to partake in the electric atmosphere/Welsh ale. If you're a non-member, it'll set you back £10 per match.

Cabbage Patch, Twickenham

The world's most famous rugby pub? Image: The Cabbage Patch

Located a stone's throw from Twickenham Stadium, The Cabbage Patch claims to be the most famous rugby pub in the world. There's plenty of rugby memorabilia for you to eyeball in the lead up/post match, as well as an enviable offering of single malt whiskies behind the bar (great for celebrating victory, or mourning defeat). Note: on the days England are playing, expect the atmosphere to be very... English.

Twickenham Brewery

Fresher beer you will not find.

The taproom at Twickenham Brewery only unbolts its doors on special occasions, the Six Nations being one of them. It's showing the matches on its three-meter two days (Saturday 10 February and Saturday 9 March). It goes without saying that pints of uber-fresh ale are poured on tap.

Orange Tree, Richmond

A hop across the Thames from the Cabbage Patch is the Orange Tree, which bills itself as THE pub to watch rugby. There's certainly going to be one hell of an atmosphere in there this Feb/March.

Pub on the Park, London Fields

There are seven big screens at Pub on the Park, none of which will be any use if there's a guy stood in front of your with his arms aloft. Image: Pub on the Park

The most aptly named pub in London — it's a pub that's on the corner of a park (London Fields to be precise) — is an excellent choice for Six Nations fans. It's got an infinite number of big screens (well, seven), and will be showing every game of the tournament. Just remember when you book a table to tell them it's specifically for the sports, lest you end up having to watch it on your phone.

Big Penny Social, Walthamstow

Room for a little one? There's actually space for 1,400 to watch each match at Big Penny Social.

Humungous bar/entertainment space Big Penny Social is hoping rugby fans will flood through its doors over Feb/March. There's definitely space for them — what with its 1,400 capacity. Don't worry about squinting to see the action; that'll be shown on two mahoosive HD screens. Over 20 beers are available on tap, and there's food too. Entry's free, but it's very much worth booking a table.

Hunter's Moon, South Kensington + sister pubs across London

A burger, beer and Six Nations menu
The Hunter's Moon and two other pubs are doing special Six Nations menus

Every game is on at the Hunter's Moon in South Ken, and what's more, the modern boozer is serving up a — oh ho! — scrum-y set menu, including a lobster, prawn and avocado brioche roll, and a Korean fried chicken burger. Sharing drinks include a four-pint jug of lager, and the Welsh Butty Bach beer.

The Hunter's Moon, South Kensington. Other pubs in this chain doing the same this are the Apollo Arms, Clapham, and Ganymede, Belgravia.

White Hart, Barnes

This mightily well-turned-out riverside boozer is a sucker for the rugby, and every match is being screened here, with the website inviting you to 'scrum down to the river'.

Cadogan Arms, Chelsea

Two pints of Guinness being cheersed in front of bar snacks

A special Six Nations menu is served up at the Cadogan Arms, as part of the posh pub's comprehensive coverage of the competition; it includes a black pudding scotch egg and beef and Guinness pie. Speaking of Guinness, the black stuff will be poured on tap, as will the 0.0% version. If you've got a while Rugger-loving posse in tow, book out the Rose Room, which has its own bar and TV screens. The same menu/coverage can be found at sister pub the George, in Fitzrovia.
