The Wimbledon screenings on the faux-grass canalside steps by Granary Square usually get pretty busy as crowds gather with plastic flutes and bottles of Waitrose prosecco, so get there early. And if your fave hits an ace, there are 1,080 choreographed fountain jets right behind to help you cool off. Stick around after the matches for free open-air film screenings curated by Everyman Cinemas.
You don't have to be a sports junkie to enjoy outdoor sports screenings in London during summer. Watching events like the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and this year's Rugby World Cup at an outdoor screen with crowds of others always provides a great atmosphere. Pull up a deck chair, bring your own bottle and cheer along whatever the weather.
