Go to Foreman's Fish Island Riviera!!!! It is 100metres from the Olympic park entrance and is ACE! There is a pop up beach with a volley ball net, yummy food stalls, bar run by Maddox. I was there for the Opening ceremony and all the Olympic stadium fireworks are directly above you - the helicopter and parachute jump were directly overhead and you can hear the people in the stadium and see them on the whopping great big screen they have. If you haven't got tickets to the closing ceremony, which unfortunately I don't it is the closest you are going to get to being there with the added bonus of being able to be with all your mates and on a beach!

The Pilgrim Pub in Kennington is showing all the sport on 4 big screen TVs and one outside if the weather is good!
The Anthologist ruined the Opening Ceremony for all of those who had booked to watch it there. Yes, they have a big screen - but no sound. Pretty pointless attempting to watch the Opening Ceremony with no sound. Staff didn't admit there was a problem with the sound despite lots of people asking what was going on. We finally gave up 20 minutes in (after having arrived over 2 hours earlier to secure our booking).
The Anthologist was a disaster. Booked an area to watch the opening ceremony, really big screen - looked promising. But it turns out they haven't wired up the sound so we couldn't hear a thing - had to leave as it was completely pointless without sound. Staff didnt give anyone information. Luckily the red herring around the corner saved the day, though very disappointed to have missed the first 20 mins.
The Runner Bar at Green's will be showing all events (Monday - Friday) on two large screens. We also have private screening facilities available for those that want something special!
