Where To Watch The World Cup Final 2018 In London

It may not be coming home to England, but there's still an epic game of football to be watched this weekend. Whether you're supporting France or Croatia, here are the venues screening the World Cup Final:

Get into the action at Camden Market

London Designer Outlet, Wembley

We've had confirmation that the final will be screened at London Designer Outlet's family-friendly viewing area. Exact details TBC — watch this space.

RE:PLAY bar, Barbican

This sports bar has only just opened inside the Thistle Hotel in Barbican. There will be 10 screens dotted around the bar showing the match, plus five booths with their own private screens, each big enough for six people. Food options are typical sports bar fare; burgers, wings, banana splits and the like and drinks offers for the match include six bottles of beer for £20.
Free entry, booking recommended

Dead Dolls House, Islington

This three-storey townhouse venue is throwing one heck of a party, with large screens inside and outside, plus a barbecue, and live music after the game.
Tickets £5, booking required

Swingers, Oxford Street and the City

Both branches of this crazy golf club are showing the match, with food and drink offerings from the likes of Patty&Bun, Made of Dough, Breddos Tacos, Hackney Gelato, Pizza Pilgrims and DF Mexico. Drinks specials include 2 Frosé cocktails for £15 and a bucket of 5 Sol beers for £22.
Free entry (no need for golf tickets), booking a table recommended via WestEndEvents@SwingersLDN.com or CityEvents@SwingersLDN.com

From £49, book ahead

Bloomberg Arcade, Bank

Wimbledon and the World Cup come together at this new foodie hub. Both large screens will be showing Wimbledon on Saturday, while on Sunday, one will stick with the tennis and the other will show the football.  Restaurants and bars in the arcade include Vinoteca, Bleecker Burger, Homeslice, Caravan and Brigadiers, and many will have special menus and deals tying in with the sporting weekend.
Free entry, just turn up

One Aldwych

For a more exclusive experience, book out the private screening room at One Aldwych Hotel. The price includes exclusive hire of 30-capacity room for 15-30 guests, plus wine, beer, water and a selection of five food bowls, available in the adjoining dining room.
£95, booking required.

Skylight, Tobacco Dock

Keep an eye on the Skylight Twitter account to see if there's likely to be space.

Skylight, on the roof of Tobacco Dock, has both indoor and outdoor screens, showing the match, along with plenty of food and drink options. Advance tickets for the final are sold out and at time of writing, Skylight is saying that walk-in spaces might (no guarantee) be available on the day, but you can expect to queue for them. Keep an eye here for updates on the day.
Free entry, no tickets left, turn up early if you're hoping for a walk-in spot.

Flat Iron Square, Borough

The last couple of England matches at this foodie venue have been ticketed, and have sold out instantly. They will be showing the final, but details and tickets haven't been released at time of writing — watch this space.
Tickets required, details TBC

Camden Market

A previous game in Camden Market

The final will be shown on the large outdoor screen in Camden Market. If you're all about the match snacks, head here — you'll be among one of London's best street food markets, with a special World Cup bar, and pizzas celebrating the flavours of the finalist countries.
Free entry, just turn up

Beer Merchants Tap, Hackney Wick

A new addition to our pub guide, Beer Merchants Tap in Hackney Wick has transformed its back room into a Football Beer Hall with capacity for 80 people. Half the tables are bookable, the other half are first come first served on the day.

The Water Poet, Spitalfields

Our go-to pub for any big event, The Water Poet will be showing the match on nine different screens throughout the pub and garden, including an enormous screen in the bar. Tables are bookable, but if you're making last minute plans, the size of the place makes it one of your best turn-up-and-hope-there's-space options.
Free entry, booking a table recommended

The Roadhouse, Covent Garden

Exciting times at The Roadhouse

This Covent Garden bar is going all out with happy hours, drinks deals, burgers and four giant screens, plus a post-match after party.

Free entry, booking recommended

Duke of Edinburgh, Brixton

Big screen, huge beer garden, outdoor bar, food, plenty of seats — what's not to like about this Brixton stalwart?

The Bud Boat, River Thames

Win tickets for the Bud Boat

Tickets to the screening on board the Bud Boat have sold out, but we've got five pairs to give away. The three-deck boat will have a huge screen on the top deck showing the match, meaning you can soak up the sun and sights in between penalties. When the match is over, the party continues with DJ sets, entertainment, and of course, a well-stocked bar.
