Where To Watch Wimbledon 2017 On The Big Screen

You want to watch Wimbledon, but you missed the ballot and are you're not 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 3-16 July.

Lewis Cubitt Square, King's Cross

Strawberries & Screen is back in Lewis Cubitt Square for 2017, and they're claiming it's one of the biggest screens in central London for watching the tennis. Every day of the tournament is being screened here.
Free, 3-16 July.

The O2 Centre, Finchley Road

A tennis lawn, deckchairs, and a four metre screen are popping up at the O2 Centre to help visitors make the most of Wimbledon. There's also a Wimbledon themed photo booth, and a lucky dip giving sports fans the chance to win a prize — and, of course, restaurants will be serving up the obligatory strawberries and cream.
Free, 3-16 July

One New Change, St Paul's

For a bit of extra pizazz, watch Murray et al from a rooftop overlooking St Paul's Cathedral. One New Change shopping centre goes the whole hog with tennis-themed cocktail and cakes on sale, and Union Jack deckchairs to kick back on as you watch the action.
Free, 3-16 July.

Selfridges, Oxford Street

Pimm’s will be hosting The Pimm’s Wimbledon Bar on the terrace of Selfridges Roof Deck where tennis fans can watch live coverage of The Championships while enjoying a glass of the good stuff.  The whole terrace will be tennis-themed, so if you're the sort of person that takes tennis seriously, we reckon this is your best bet.
Free entry, 3-16 July

Duke of York Square, Chelsea

Take a picnic blanket along to watch the finals action in Chelsea, and make the most of a pop-up Partridges bar serving Pimm's and strawberries and cream. Feeling fancy? Reserve yourself a deckchair (booking opens soon) in the VIP area for free. A professional coach is offering tennis lessons to younger fans too.
Free, 14-16 July

St Katharine Docks

Watch Wimbledon on a floating pontoon at St Katharine Docks, near the Tower of London.  Deckchairs will be provided, and for the semi-finals and finals, Pimm's and strawberries will be available. Prior to this, bring your own picnic to get stuck into while you watch.
Free, 3-16 July

New Street Square, near Chancery Lane

New Street Square is offering City workers a chance to sneak out and catch up on the action at lunchtime, with Centre Court being screened for the duration. Even better, a different food stall is selling their wares everyday, from Korean dumplings to paella and duck confit — check out the food schedule here.
Free, 3-16 July

Canada Square, Canary Wharf

Wimbledon is just one of the events being screened in Canary Wharf this summer, alongside Ascot, Tour de France, various Grand Prix and World Athletics Championships. There are screens in Canada Square Park and Cabot Square. Restaurants and bars nearby are serving up refreshments — or preorder yourself a picnic from Tom's Kitchen if you don't want to miss a minute of the action.
Free, 3-16 July (check before you travel for a specific match, as other events are being screened too)

Queen of Hoxton

Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen is showing the action - with free strawberries.

Queen of Hoxton (alas downstairs, not the rooftop bar) and nearby sister venues The Book Club and Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen will all be showing the matches — and serving up complimentary strawberries and cream to those watching the action. Win-win situation, if you ask us.
Free, 3-16 July

Flat Iron Square, Borough

Stella Artois is hosting Vantage Point, a free entry screening area, with food stalls and live alternative commentary from the likes of comedian Matt Richardson and tennis legend Goran Ivanisevic.
18+, free, 3-16 July

Merchant Square, Paddington

Once again, a big screen pops up near Paddington Basin, screening the action complete with deckchairs for tennis fans to get comfy in.
Free, 3-16 July

Broadgate, Liverpool Street

Exchange Square is once again home to big screens this summer, screening films and sport, including Wimbledon. Follow them on Twitter to find out what's being screened each day.
Free, until 31 August

The Piazza, Wimbledon

If you want to get as close to the action as possible without a ticket, pitch up in Wimbledon town centre and watch on the big screens in The Piazza. Get there early if you want to bag a deckchair — and don't miss the nearby food pop-up. For atmosphere, we reckon this is your best option — if you listen carefully, you may even hear those grunts, all the way from Centre Court.
Free, 3-16 July

East Village, E20

Victory Park will be transformed into Murray Mound, complete with giant screen, for tennis-enthusiasts to while away the hours in the sunshine while watching Wimbledon unfold. It's part of the summer sports coverage taking place there, which will also include the World Athletics Championships. As for refreshments — there are plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes nearby which will keep you fed and hydrated throughout. Keep an eye on Twitter for the schedule.
Free, 2 July-16 August

Old Spitalfields Market

For one day only, to over the men's semi-finals, Old Spitalfields Market will be transformed into an approximation of Murray Mound, complete with (artificial) grass, deckchairs and white picket fence, as well as the all-important big screen. Strawberries and cream, Pimms, and cucumber sandwiches will be available to buy nearby.
Free entry, 14 July

Big Screen On The Green, Chelsea

Bit of a mystery, this one. What we do know is that a big screen will be popping up somewhere in Chelsea (a mystery location...) for three days, screening various  sporting events and films (scroll down to the bottom of this page for the schedule). You'll have to book — but tickets aren't available yet, and there's no clue how much they will be, or what they'll include. Continue at your peril.
You'll need to buy tickets, 14-16 July

Roundhouse, Camden

Things have been shaken up a bit at Camden Beach this year. It's only accessible to those with tickets to the outdoor film screenings — except for the opening weekend, when the Wimbledon finals are being screened, unticketed. Watch the action with the sand between your toes, and refreshments from the beach-side bars.
Free, 15-16 July
